You can try. Do your homework on the user first.

PayPal itself only protects eBay purchases, but, if you have your PayPal tied to a credit card, you might be able to deny charges after the fact. I know that works well with regular retailers because the burden of proof is on them and they usually back down to avoid expensive legal fees. However, on a personal basis, I am not sure how the CC company would handle it.

Caveat emptor... let the buyer beware!!!

You can name and shame a poor selling experience, but i dont think anyone is going to refund you or even chase up on your behalf.

Anyways, another question....

what do you think are the best 1/8 buggy tires? Is Pro-Line the top of the line brand? Heard things about Crime Fighters???

So Jammin brand tires (theres only 2) or Pro Line?

Crimefighters from Pro-line are one the best tires you can buy, they work on most tracks quite well. Jammin's on the other hand aren't quite so good and the included foams are terrible (unless they've changed them in the last year).
