Then they should fit under the average pony car then. That will make them just the ticket for my purposes.

Guys
I always wonder about the Chinese Dealers. :violin:
NOT trying to :text-threadjacked: :scared-eek: this thread. :angry-tappingfoot:
Some of them have terrible fed back, not to pick on anyone :angry-tappingfoot:
But one of them has over 30% bad fed back :?: , most people say they never get their lights :violence-stickwhack:
He must be a bigtime dealer on Evil-Bay, That's the only thing I can think of to keep him selling on there site,
Must be a real headache for Paypal also. :?: :shhh:
He has a lot of them listed for super cheap, I'd like to buy parts/lights/trees in bulk, who can't use more lights
for night time racing, :auto-driving: :auto-driving: just saying. :laughing-rolling:

You realize, others have gotten some without any hassles and your fears are keeping you from getting what you want?
The feedback you need to worry about is his, not "other sellers in China"...then check it and decide.

eBay feedback is important to me. If it is less then 99% positive I will look elsewhere.

Also US dealers who are opting for the inhouse global shipping options, put themselves at a huge disadvantage when shipping abroad. The cost eBay tacks on as well as the bogus custom fees is ridiculous. It inflates what should cost $9 to near $30. So obviously when I am looking for a $9 part one of the first things I do is see how much it is going to cost me to get the part to my door. The eBay global shipping program is so expensive I am typically forced to find a different source for the part who doesn't use the inhouse eBay shipping option. Just saying

Bigman, I don't get your concern here. Is it Chinese dealers in general? Or this dealer in particular? I went back to the ebay link for the particular chassis we are discussing here to check the dealer's rating. It is 99.6%. Not bad. So what is the problem?

Okay, so I'm taking a chance with my $15 motor order.

BTW - what Avant body does that chassis normally fit under?
