Obviously not interested in staying in business..... last time I checked, you needed to sell shit in order make a profit and survive in this ever growing world of aftermarket companies.

They are closed. I stopped by a month ago and they're locked up now.

It's too bad, because they finally made a nice exhaust that doesn't drone at 2,000 RPM and has a slight hum at 3,000 RPM but still sounds good when you get on it, that I was the beta for.
Adam was trying to made better quality stuff after they blew up, but I guess they ran out of money to pay the rent.

They didn't have anything to sell because they were trying to redo most of it to fit better. The Mini stuff was pretty good, but the 135/335 down pipes were a pain. They couldn't find anyone to make them since they were so much work to fit right.

The exhaust was about to go into production when they closed. It's really too bad because it's a nice unit, and you would have been able to choose how loud you want it with resonators, or drone chambers (like AA) added if you wanted.

RR items for the 135i were garbage. The exhaust didnt fit, the intake looked like it was welded by a child etc etc.

Check NA Motoring (Mini Forum). My friend sent me information regarding Riss Racing's outcome on there. It was fairly detailed.
