Agreed.Try this.. test the response of the shopping site.

1. Mail the contact us link and see how fast to they reply to you, this ensures that you'll know that the website is not operated by the characters from the episodes of Red Dwarf

2. Do a google search for any bad repo's about the site. Lets say u want to buy from isellrcandubuyfrommenow.com. Do a search like "isellrcandubuyfrommenow.com sucks", "isellrcandubuyfrommenow.com bad experience" ,i think you know how to explore your creativity there.

3. Lastly check with ya buddies online and those living near you plus least we forget those that live at the local track.

i support my lhs as often as i can. There are however some lhs that only speak in business lingo.Like when i drop by to get a washer. Some individual said that's not a good engine if u have to use a washer and buy a new engine from me.

yeah right it's a c5 with a six shoe racing clutch and thus i just a washer to fill the gap. and he says i better be off buying a new engine.Most engines i use do need a washer or two.DUUUHHH. Another bad exp was when i bought a $130 sanwa/airtronics servo and it burns on the first try ... sent it back for repairs and it's been a year and finally the shop says the servo is gone and did not give me a replacement.I have already swore that i will never step foot there again.
