Went on the website out of curiosity, and lookie what I was greeted with!

"GREAT NEWS! The purchase of 3D Motorsport Engineering is complete. As a former avid customer, I wanted this unique clutch to remain available for all to enjoy.

It will take a few months before product availability, but it's in process. I am in touch with suppliers to start building inventory again.

Thank you,

3dmotorsportengineering@gmail.com"


:wai:
Maybe manual clutches aren't gone!

hmm strange.. no sign of a blocked popup, no nothing (checked the source codes)
must be some sort of geolocation filter or something... *shrugs*

Yeah I got the same popup as well. Wonder if it's TRUE or malware?

Can’t really think of any reasons why it could be malware but I guess it’s possible. IF it is though, it’s built into the website, because I run Firefox with Adblock Plus AND Ghostery and it still shows up.

funny
I see the powr.io address in the source code (part of the myshopify javascript code)
Code:
/\/\www.powr.io\/powr.js?powr-token=3d-motorsport.myshopify.com\u0026external-type=shopify\u0026shop=3d-motorsport.myshopify.com
maybe a myshopify-hack, maybe legit..
I can't tell; but no popup not showing up here
(on no browser on no device so far.. not even with adblocking disabled)

Anyways.. I don't care too much,
but let's just say I'd not contact that gmail for now ;)

I wonder if its not a regional thing? Maybe it only pops up for those in North America? Either way, I'm skeptical. If nothing official doesn't arise from the Facebook page, then it's probably a scam.

Nice! I was just looking into getting one a couple months ago and saw they were no longer in production. Really good to hear that its coming back! I just hope they get the support they need to stay running

We don't know if it's true or not. It could be a scam or something. I'd check the company's social media pages for any official updates or PM them with a screen shot and ask to know if it's TRUE or not.

Yeah Im not buying just yet but I really do hope they are coming back. There really isnt alot of transmission parts for the honda clones out there besides the tc and centrifugal clutch.
