Just in case you think that the active and continued support that BangShift gives SEMA and very specifically The RPM Act is some sort of a waste of time, understand that at this moment, the United States EPA is actively attacking, fining, and causing what might be irreparable harm to the high performance aftermarket that you know and love.
Below is a website, an EPA website that shows the millions of dollars of judgements that have been levied on companies SINCE LAST YEAR. We have since learned that the EPA is on an aggressive plan of action investigating, fining, and perhaps destroying aftermarket companies that will continue through 2023. This is not a drill, this is not the boy crying wolf. This is it, guys and girls. This is where things can go one way or the other for this industry and we’re sure as hell not going to sit here and be quiet as the attacks ramp up.
NO, these are not just people making tuners for diesel trucks. This list will blow you away because you’ll see just how far and wide the program has gone so far. Giant industry names, familiar industry names, legacy industry names are all on here and are all now taking a financial burden from the government for selling parts and pieces that were never a problem in the past but have now seemingly become an income stream for EPA investigators through the levied fines.
We could rant for days on this but the actions of the EPA, the state of the industry, and what could come of all this literally speak for themselves. Read that first link and then for the love of God, click the second one and take the time to support The RPM Act which could help to drastically alter the strategy of the EPA and the direction this seems to be heading in. Please help!
