Just wondering what off-road tracks there are in the Grand Terrace, CA area?

Not GT, but I'm in that area.

If you're coming out...shoot me a PM and I'll make sure you get to a track and I always have extra cars.

There was a track in GT, but it closed a year or two ago. We have a few around , depending on what you want to run. Pegasus, Thunder Alley, Revelations, OCRC...parking lot stuff...

There used to be a track in GT but closed down. Only electric track near you is Pegasus. Thunder Alley for gas in Beaumont. 30 ins to Monclair for you. Also a track located inside the motocross track in Riverside. Havnt been there to see the finished layout but it wasnt looking to good. I could be wrong????(Milestone mx park)

Does he owe you money or something? Because if he does...we'd be happy to beat him up for you. I mean James and I and and maybe Louis and Albert will all beat him up for you.

You coming out this way or are you just reaching out for a soulmate through the internets?

He's trying to screw me on an ebay deal. I won THIS auction on July 6th and paid him for it. He claims he shipped it, but I never received it. The guy lives in Grand Terrace, CA. So this morning I'm looking on ebay, and what do you know, I see THIS. It just so happens to be the EXACT same thing I paid for minus the ball studs. And what it so, so interesting about the auction is its being sold from GRAND TERRACE. What are the chances that I never got my quick change hubs, but out of the THOUSANDS of cities across the U.S. the EXACT same thing is being sold from the same city? And its the FIRST item the seller has EVER sold. Look strange to anyone else? I would really appreciate it if someone who knows him would go up to him and ask him WTF? He keeps saying he emailed me the tracking number, which he didn't, but at the same time he says he sent it Parcel Post and you dont get a tracking number with Parcel. At least I've never been able to get one. Bottom line is the dude is trying to rip me off!

Hey...hey...settle down...

He's a big-time Losi freak...everyone knows him and he races every week. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if he had multiples of everything. He races a LOT and he has lots of cars...lots of fast cars.

If you need to get ahold of him, I'm sure that one or more of us can help you reach him. Like James said, he's at Pegasus every week. Oh yeah...if you ship online with USPS, you get a delivery confirmation number whenever you print a label, no matter what service you pick.

Oh yeah...again...I had a package I shipped for a buyer on here...went out PP and it took the full two weeks to get from here to Michigan. The guy was getting impatient with me...and I was thinking I was going to be losing the whole deal (sold him my MF-2) but it was just the USPS Parcel Post. Sometimes they're pretty fast, sometimes they're not.

He seems like a decent guy...it's probably just taking a while because it's PP. Don't worry...you'll get your stuff. We have your back if you don't.

Yeah, parcel post is pretty slow. I sent a Bolink dragster (remember those?) to NJ and it took forever and a half. Even though we communicated back and forth pretty well and he didn't get mad, he didn't leave me feedback, and I'm not gonna ask for it either. Maybe just give it another day or two...

Okay, I hear all that, but there's still the issue of the tracking number that he claims he sent. And is it just an extraordinary coincidence that the EXACT item that I haven't received is being sold AGAIN from the same city? How often do you see complete quick change hubs with axles on ebay? Never. I know because I look everyday. If he's such a stand up guy then someone please ask him what the deal is with this, and where's the tracking number?
