    It's almost the exact same layout, especially on the front page, with the FK01 Sydney style center. Colors, and everything else also. Grrrr...makes me mad

    Many rip-offs don't look that good because the person ripping off the other site forgets a detail here or ther, the important details.

    yep, id have to say thats a total ripoff. Even the fonts and the tiny arrows next to the links are the same.
    Looks like they just saved FK as a web page and changed the names of the links.
    Pretty sad indeed.
