So giving you guys a bit of a sneak preview of the new site since it seems like most of the long term members are here and are good at giving, well let's just call it constructive criticism :). Eventually (in a week or two) this will be the only maximal site instead of the two parallel sites we've been running for a while.

The new site we launched (Maximal Performance - Street - Strip - Track - Homepage (http://store.maximalperformance.com)) catered to all platforms and the feedback we got back from the 3S and DSM crowd (our main business) was mixed with it being a bit harder to find products for them. We also didn't pull in a ton of business from the other platforms and we lost some functionality (thinking about how we were going to do black Friday sales is what spurred this change). Our old site (Maximal Performance - 3000GT, Stealth, DSM, and Evo Performance Parts (http://www.maximalperformance.com/store)) was still chugging along but really lacked some back-end functionality.

So with all that said I took the plunged and created a new site for just 3S, DSM, and FRS/BRZ (the one market that did do well). All the 3S parts should be added and it should be functional so if you want to try it out, from just poking around to buying things, I'd appreciate any feedback.

Our main domain name now forwards to the new site. The store. will be going away shortly and we'll leave the /store up until we get a chance to update as many links as possible out on the forum.

That makes perfect sense, right? :p

But yeah, any feedback of the new new site please let me know. I've gotten a few orders from it already so I assume you guys are using it.

For security purposes, see about renaming your admin directory to something else. your less likely to get hacked into when you don't use the standard admin directory folder name especially when using an out of box software where hackers know the directory structures of the main files.

Also, remove the branding the cart software adds. this also helps deter them if the don't know the software it's running.

Let's bump this.

Went "live" by posting it on the other site and other 3S venues and have been getting plenty of traffic so I'm assuming you guys are liking it!
