I've sent money for acouple of motors to this guy over 3 weeks ago... Not wanting to jump to conclusions, but if you've had dealing with him, let me know.

Thanks...

I researched this individual, a while back. I was going to make him an offer on an item. Take a look at the attached picture to see what I found right off on eBay.
Hope this helps....

Thanks Rhesus!

Whereabouts do you race? on-road or off-road? I've been running at Ultra.

Micro,
Don't race, actually. Mostly just run up and down the parking lot at work, and literally 'backyard bash'.
I'm about an hour east of Cincy, so have never gotten into the racing thing. I occasionally stop in at Pit Row if I'm in the area, for goodies.
Anyway, Good luck with your motors,
-John

Use Caution!!

It's been 4 weeks since I sent (Kenny and/or Julie Danley) "Sprint7x racing" money for acouple of motors. I've since email them twice to see what's up. Both times no response.

At this point, I would not recommend dealing with this person. I know some have received their purchased items, however, I have not, and have not recieved any responses to emails either.

Buyer Beware!

I know someone that bought some 'like new wheels and tires' off of this guy. Yes, he did eventually got them, but they were anything but like new. They were worn down, inserts falling out, high profile inserts in low profile tires, bent rims, they were trash. Just a heads up, beware of him!

Here's the PM that I got from the buyer. I won't say his name, but here's the PM....
We worked out a deal under ('Lots of new sedan tires') for 2 sets of 4 mounted Sorex 32R's... He wanted a money order... He was very slow to ship... When the package finally arrived, I found:

1 set of 4 mounted Sorex 32R's almost worn out, rims chewed up, a visible groove in the center of the tread, etc... But this isn't the worst...

The other set of tires were 26mm rims, with LOW PROFILE ProLine 1092's with HIGH PROFILE 24mm inserts. Tires have a "hump" in the middle 2/3 due to the use of the wrong inserts, the tires are heavily worn, rims are badly chewed up... Totally useless!

Now he is ignoring my attempts to get him to work this out...

Sprint7x Racing

For $32, this person sold out their 'name' and 'word'. Hope it was worth it!

Buyer's beware!!

Hello I have just bought some motors batteries and tires from sprint and they were all like he describe maybe even better than he described. I think you people need to figure out all the facts before you jump to conclusions about the guy. Have you ever thought that things get lost in the mail. It does happen and a person selling you the item is not responsible for that unless you ask him to get insurance for the item he sending. So before you go bashing others and jumping to conclusions try to get all the facts first and try to contact the person and work things out before you go Name bashing. And finally it is not right to use there real name like that unless they royally screwed you out of a lot of money. That is why we all have screen names.

Screen names? I think when someone gets screwed they have every right to post the details. Too many goofs hiding behind screen names thinking they are invincible. Read some of the horror stories posted on this site, some guys have a bunch screen names that they jump to and fro whenever the crap gets too deep. These are honest hard working people trying to scrape a little out of the budget to support an expensive hobby, trying to save a few bucks buying used. Low lifes that rip decent people off should be exposed, every bit of info that can be dug up should be posted, as long as it is a rip off. Things do get lost in the mail, but when someone has been sent money, and then refuses to answer any e-mails about it? KInda makes ya go "hmmmm?" doesn't it.......just my 2 cents worth.........

Have you also taken into account that some people don't sit on the net day in and day out all day long. That people have busy schedules and they don't check there email and days and weeks at a time. It aint like the guy screwed anybody out of a load of money. It is also the price you pay by buying and selling on web sites like this. All I was trying to say is the guy is legit. Also if the hobby is to expensive you shouldn't be doing it, and if you work so hard you should have enough to buy new.

No I don't think anybody should get ripped off anf hard working people do deserve to have hobbies. I am just saying if you can't aford the hobby than you shouldn't do it. Also I am a very loving father and I do have a dog and a cat that I don't kick. All I originally wanted to say is lay off sprint. Just because he had a deal or too go bad doesn't mean the guy is a scammer. I know him well and i have raced with him for a long time and he is not out to rip anybody off.

I apologize if my 2 cents came across as a slam against this gentleman, it was in no way meant to do so. I'm a responsible hard working father as well, but I get tired of reading about these people that are just out to take as much as they can. I have a great job, I work long hours, and if I really wanted to I guess I could just run and buy new and not have to worry about it. But you know what, my daughter has beautiful teeth, to the tune of $22 grand, my furnace just calved, another $3 grand. Not a sob story, no BOO HOO here, just facts of life. I love racing, it's expensive and I wouldn't mind saving a couple of bucks, just tired of getting screwed. Again, this was in no way a slam against this person, my apologies if it came out that way.....
