    Last year I bought a 32 axle off the HAMB the price was $100 and $30 dollars for shipping. The seller said the axle shipped out october 5th 2010. Well after a month and the axle still hadnt showed the seller agreed to refund my money and i decided to eat the cost of shipping. About a week later i got a postal money order for $100. Well yesterday i got a call from my dad that the postal lady delivered and old front axle. Well sure enough the post office delivered the 32 axle post marked from october 5th last year. So i guess i spoke too soon saying that the axle was lost in the mail. and i contacted the seller so i could re-buy the axle.

    I guess the term Snail Mail really fits in this case.

    $30 sounds cheap for something that big and heavy. No wonder it took so long. Must have sent non-priority shipping.
     

  5. Eh, $30 might take it FedEx Ground if it's not too far. Which is why I always use ground and always use delivery confirmation if I absoloutely have to go USPS.
