Need to rant...

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Don't you hate when you go to the lhs and get your part or hop ups, and you asked is this the right one because you no the manufacturer had a recall on the first shipment (months ago) and they look at you and say YA ITS THE RIGHT ONE.
Then you go home happy because you have that hop up you wanted for awhile now, rip your truck apart and go to install it and its the wrong one, its the old one that they recalled.
Now you have to go back to the lhs and ether get your money back or wait for the new one to come in, go home and put your truck back together because you now you are going to want to run it before the new part comes.

Yes I do hate that ... and while we are ranting ... I hate when hobby stores tell you they are going to place an order (so you go ahead and add your importantly needed part rather then going to another LHS) and then you are told one excuse after another that the order isnt in yet ...followed by ... the part is backordered (because they waited to place the order) ... this has happened way to often for my liking so I order a lot of my stuff from Amain now ... I really like the atmosphere and comraderie of both my two favorite local stores and support them when it is practical (items I dont care about when they arrive) but for things I MUST HAVE ... for example, to get the truck off the kitchen table cuz the wife is in, then I do what I gotta do.

^That has happened to me twice. Now, I give the LHS one week to get it in. After that, I go online.

dont you hate it when

The lhs closes and you have to drive 50 km's to get a $3.00 bottle of glue.
Or even worse you have to wait a week for it to arrive from California.
