Default getting a sponsor

HEllo, Im new to this website and I think its pretty darn good. I used to race a TC3 in ABQ a few years back. Now I live in England and I now race a XXX-S G+, lots of fun. Well, to make a long story short, My better half works for a makeup company called Clinique. For those of us who are married probably heard of them. Well, My wife in her ever active business mind, asked if I would wear Clinique T-shirts and maybe even decale my car out in Clinique trim........My thinking on this: She is always trying to get me to test their Mens stuff, I use Irish spring and .98 cent shampoo. Her side of the showwer probably cost's more than my car...anyway, they carry mens products, after shave, soap, and she tells me that men are always in her shop buying that stuff(maybe its her.....)Well, Im thinking Ill do it AS long as they(Clinique) buy my Tire's and Batteries. What do ya'll think?

I would wear just about anybody's shirts for free tires and batteries. I'd say go for it.

I do anything for free RC gear, I even wear their makeup range, but that will require more that just a tires, maybe a new car kit will do it for me.

I would do it for sure.Does this now mean that you must have Clinique graphics on your r/c body to promote them?

I would rather buy all my own stuff. At some point self-respect has to overcome greed. However, I would put a decal of a douche on my car because that's just damn funny.

Any bet's on how long until we have someone listing "Team Douche" as a sponsor in their signature?
