Friction Evolution is not responsible for any damages that may have occurred by using the products that we sell. Friction Evolution does not pay for consequential, incidental, and contingent damages or costs incurred of any kind, including the cost incurred directly or indirectly in relation to products sold by Friction Evolution including labor or product coverage. Under no circumstance will Friction Evolution be held responsible for any additional products or fees that may have been damaged or lost because of a faulty product.

The customer is responsible for the cost of returning any item for warranty inspection or repair. Shipping charges are non-refundable.
Damaged or Defective Parts:
Even though all items are shipping to the customer in new condition (unless specified otherwise), sometimes they are mishandled by shipping agents. It is for this reason Friction Evolution urges all customers to inspect items immediately upon arrival, and if defects are found, to contact Friction Evolution within 5 business days to report the damaged item. After 5 business days all claims of damaged or defective parts will be refused. When contacting Friction Evolution for damaged items, please describe the defect to the best of your ability (you might be required to send photos to verify the reported damage for a return authorization). The shipping damage claim will be filed with the shipper by Friction Evolution or by Friction Evolution’s supplier who shipped the item directly to the customer. Once Friction Evolution has confirmation that the shipping damage claim has been filed with the shipper and/or confirmed that the product(s) have left defective from the product’s carrier, Friction Evolution will issue a pre-paid shipping label from the carrier and customer will drop off the package at a local shipping hub for the shipping company. Friction Evolution’s decision to ship out replacement products prior to receiving finalizations or verdicts on any damage claim associated with shipping will be done solely at the discretion of Friction Evolution.
Please note that on international returns, Friction Evolution will not be responsible for any return shipping costs.
Any authorized return shipment to Friction Evolution or Friction Evolution’s suppliers that incur shipping damage will have a shipping damage claim filed with the corresponding shipping companies. All refunds to be issued will be temporarily postponed until such damage claims are settled with that courier. If it is determined that the damage to the return shipment was not caused by the courier, then the customer will not be entitled to any refunds and the item can be shipped back at customers’ expense. Customer will be issued an RMA number from Friction Evolution for the return of damaged parts. Items sent back without an approved RMA number will be refused and all damage claims will be null and void. A fee may be charged for any missing items. In the event that an item is received defective the customer must file warranty claims directly with the manufacturer unless instructed otherwise by the manufacturer. Friction Evolution will be happy to assist customers with any warranty claims processes with manufacturer, however, the manufacturer and only the manufacturer has the sole discretion on warranty claims resolutions. Friction Evolution has no input or leverage with warranty claims. If the customer decides to not keep the product instead of receiving a replacement because it is damaged, defective, and/or lost in transit, a 20% restocking fee will be applied for the return as this will then be considered a return under the conditions of “Decide Not to Keep Parts”. Any costs incurred by Friction Evolution for unauthorized shipment refusal and without first obtaining an RMA number from Friction Evolution, will result in those costs being deducted from any refunds or store credit that the customer is entitled to. All shipping charges to be included with any refund will be null and void if Friction Evolution’s Return Policy is violated in any way. All refunds and the extent of those refunds will be subject to Friction Evolution’s discretion if the Return policy is violated in any way.
Any parts damaged due to faulty installation by the customer are the responsibility of the customer and cannot be returned for a refund. No parts that have been installed, painted, or modified in any way can be returned.
