it wouldnt be so bad if it was a even trade but i traded with something worth more than the truggy to begin with. I was ok with that then it got even worse when i received it.

Did you even read his FS post? Did you even look at the posted pics? What I see for sale is an ST-RR without bigbore shocks and He claims that it DOES NOT have BB's as they were kept by the former owner. Me thinks you should know what you are buying or trading before you send money or trades.

If I remember correctly, the truck never had big bores to begin with, I remember commenting to myself "wow non-big bore shocks look silly on a truggy... atleast he lives in hawaii"

I think the pics speak for them self.
Did you even read the post??
808 is far from being a scammer,, I just done a deal with him for more than 300 bucks!! And it went flawless.

Did you ask for pics,condition,description of what you were getting? If not,sad to say. It's on you. Sorry!

Lately on the boards,if you don't ask the right questions, it's buyer beware!

Default strr

I see how you would be angry about no big bores but if you traded without looking a pics you are a fool. Are you also upset about all the king headz stuff? It is a 2 way street he should have mentioned that there was no big bores since he contacted you. You should have just looked closer to the pics.

Granted we should always look at what we're buying, but if he was buying a STRR, it should come with big bores as it did out of the box. I wouldn't buy a Mustang advertised as a GT and not be upset when I discovered it had the six banger--same thing here on a scale level.
