I seen where questions are asked and they show up in the auction. How is that done? Maybe you could ask about all that in the format that makes it show on the auction to call him out on it.

Yeah I think that is a feature that the seller has to enable when he creates a listing. I could be wrong, but I was hoping it would show up. He stopped responding to me.

Seriously though Like I said earlier he knows what he is selling is misleading and if anyone calls him on it, he will just say I didn't know. I know this for a fact because in the first e-mail he was like "oh I need to go change to title" newsflash you also need to change the whole description you can see all of his listing use the same format with one or two things changed and his spelling sucks nutz

When you answer a question on eBay, you get the option to post it to the auction ....it's typically if the seller feels it may be of benefit to other bidders. It is completely up to the seller if he wants to post the information or not.

WTF!! Eff you fuknutz is what I told him. It's his job as a Ebay seller to give accurate information about the products he is selling. He is the typical "I didn't know guy"

i'm thinking you shouldn't make fun of someones spelling.

However, I know those are no CR or MF editions let alone Truggies, what ever, looks more like a Desert truck than anything else. Truggy, um wrong scale, maybe, LoL, threaded shocks? Not even close, there guy. I have never run anything other than an Associated and still know this is a con. Funny though.

I cant believe it ended up going for $175. Hopefully buyer doesnt pay. I believe $60 tops would have been a fair deal at most.

ebay used to be good, now it is just full of crap and scammers. You have to filter through dozens of pages to find the 1 genuine sale.

I bought a XX4 WE off ebay, and was very happy with it, was in the condition described except for the bit he left out about the front bumper being cracked right through where the bolt was clearly over tightened. Cheap part to fix, but you definately need to know what you are looking at.

gotta hate the scum that rip people off like that.

Sometimes people just don't know what they have....or are not observant of things like this when they list....that's why tons of photos are needed.

The married guys appreciate the sacrifices that the single guys make. Once you get married, you can gain access to the hidden "married guys with no money" for-sale section.

You will need to submit your wife's permission in writing prior to admittance.
