Item number 5901283043
Its the linkage setup for the 2.5 which of course is the platform for my new maxx I'm putting together for the track...enough about that.
Shame on Pinnacle by the way...they say they are open at 10 yet its now 1123 and I've been trying to get ahold of them since 10.
I wanted to get a price on this to see if I could get it locally cheaper or easier..yet no answer....
15 min left...and I'm going to try and professionally snipe this ebay item.
I looked around and it would cost me ballpark 20US to get this similar set up...70cdn for the upgrade kit whick includes a exhaust manifold and titanium piece (WTF would I want titanium on those).
with 10 seconds to go I'm going to throw in my top bid...10US.
I have several approach methods....dependant upon the level of interest in this item. If there are several last minute bids..meaning within 10min that tells me others are waiting...possible snipers in the bush...one must remember to set there personal value limit...and bid that..if it goes for higher then you didn't get ripped (or what you feel is getting ripped) keep in mind if its a hot item and rare or hard to find...you can't go cheap...on the other hand..similar to this particular item..there are lots of them about..so I pick a value that is good for me.
Ok we are down to 10 min left...and as usual doubt is setting in...similar to cold feet...yet I find myself scouring the internet for pricing and similar items...oh wait..I've found similar items...checking prices...
6 minutes to go....still checking other similar items...trying to confirm if my top bid is good!
Ok 10 is still good...all other auctions start at 6-7us range..with buy it now for 20....we are a go for bid....
4 minutes...lining up bid window....t minus 2 min to constant refresh mode...closing other windows as not to confuse at go time....
(pinnacle still not answering...BBBBBBB)
3 minutes to go...
2 min now active for constant refresh....and count down begins....
checking ip for other active draw!!! none!! good...go weapons hot...radio silence active.............
30 seconds....activate stop watch for simulecast....14sec activate bid window....10 bid...6.25 active bid..2 seconds....SCCCOOOOOORRRRRRREEEEEEEE...hooollyy maccccinnnaawww.....
Final price...6.25...excitement PRICELESS....
