    What is up with Dangerboy?

    Anyone have any info on Dangerboy components?
    It seems that their website is down and someone mentioned to me that they went under a while ago, but I can't find any confirmation or denial of this.
    Thanks!

    I think Chris King should buy them out, then I could have perfectly matching anodized bling!

    Aren't Staitline and Dangerboy very close in location to each other? Sounds like someone jumped ship to make their own kit.

    They are...but thats now how it went down. Straitline has been in the CNC business a long time...making aerospace parts, some moto stuff, I believe marine stuff too...

    That bites so bad. They're Canadian I thought you couldn't get sued up there (not like you can down here). But what do I know.

    I never apologize. I'm sorry, but that's just the way I am.

    Not the specifics of the situation - there are so many variables that speculation is pointless!

    Too bad, they made good stuff too.
