Just as the title says.
I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

eBay seller paq999

RE: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=25251
:x Within the link that is listed above. I bought it from paq999 last month and got it last Saturday. This esc is very different from what I bought from Hobby Partz. Hobby Wings Tech Support has informed me this was the earlier version of EZRUN-60A-SL.
So stay away from this seller!

If they came from out of country there is a chance they were held at customs and that is out of the seller's hands. I have had stuff get shipped, get a tracking number, and not receive it for 3-4 weeks due to it being held at customs.

Ditto, You can be sure it was customs. same story here, and it has taken even longer than that for me. Keep in contact with the seller you are dealing with, tracking also shows how long it sits in customs.

That seller has the TXT-1 copy as well. If you google 'TXT-1 clone review' there is a really good thread (on another forum) which outlines the bad points of the copy.

Yea sometimes things get held up after shipping..I order TXT wheels from the other guy and he is in Japan and sometimes it takes almost a month, I think his wheels are clones too but you cant tell...

We did the review on the TXT clod on rcmt.net and it was a good review...some things we found that were bad but all in all the shipping and total cost made it not a good deal...

The only way i could tell is by the back of the rim. those drive pins were huge. I have a set of txt rims and i looked at them and you could really tell by looking at them side by side. but i made them work.

Ebay Seller: atyhobby

Seller from Hong Kong. I did a 'buy it now' for a Tamiya motor. Took a week to tell me that they don't actually have the motor. Told me they will send when they get one in. I'm trying to get a refund to my paypal account. They are slack in returning my messages. Beware!
