Thumbs down fire929 - Terrible Trader

I listed a mint http://www.rctech.net/forum/r-c-item...yclone-tc.html sedan for sale at this link.

My post was crystal clear that I was selling a 'roller only'. I exchanged several PM's with the buyer and made it clear that the steering servo, receiver, ESC, personal transponder, motor & heatsink were not included. I agree to his lower offer and shipped the car with tracking and waited for a reply.

I hear nothing.....and then fire929 files a PayPal claim for the full amount all because there were no servo screws and no sway bars. There never were any sway bars on the car and none were shown in the pictures. I didn't even get a PM to acknowledge the car had arrived, just the PP claim. Complete nonsense and this person is to be avoided.

Feedback has been left for this POS with the expected retaliatory feedback received in turn.

This is so funny, I wish you would be half of a man and state that you sold a 3 racing Cyclone as a Hot bodies cyclone with Dogbones not CVD's no sway bars, axles and a whole list of other parts from some other chassis. Its all okay because if i ever meet you good night. You can never tarnish anything I have established because your games only reflect the senseless child that you are. So for anyone else deal with him if you want but it is nice to know that I'm still on your mind . Good day Steve e BAN

looks like a Cyclone TC to me, and sounds like you were unreasonable, should have contacted the seller first if there was a problem. Steve M has been on the forums for a LONG time and i've dealt with him b4 in the past. You right now are coming across as a scammer....

The car is a Hot Bodies Cyclone. My post included several high definition pictures for you to view so you could check before committing to buy. I even sent you a picture of the chassis bottom at your request. The car was purchased by me so how you came to your phony conclusion is a mystery.

You should mention to anyone willing to sell to you that you took a week to send payment. You assumed parts not shown or mentioned were included and filed a false PP claim against me for your wrong assumptions. Anyone crazy enough to sell to this fool should think twice.
