Questionable ebay seller
This appears to be a clear case of shill bidding/bid manipulation. Look at this auction:
green and orange IROC chassis
There was a late bidder who jumped in at the last moment to apparently 'snipe' this auction. The late bidder won the auction but in doing so, he exposed what the previous high bid was.
That itself wouldn't raise many red flags except for the following: 8344slotcity 'relisted' this set on 4/3 with a BIN of $125.88, which was the sniped losing bid. To say this looks 'weird' is an understatement.
8344slotcity is Martin Acero. He also goes by Martin Joseph. So as it appears to me, Martin ran up the bid on auction 222894779253 so that he could expose the high bid and relist at that price. Many of 8344slotcity's auctions are BIN, but for those that arent't, I'd be willing to bet that there is a pattern of shill bidding on 8344slotcity auctions. I encourage everyone to report this activity to ebay.
There is no reason in the world why a set of green/orange chassis should be bid up anywhere near the levels they are. To bid these up to $125 is insane.
This guy is shady. He also has listed 2017 Dash Magnets. The problem is, he doesn't have the 2017 magnets. I purposely painted the 2017 batch with a darker blue. What Martin Joseph Acero has based on what he has pictured, is August 2016 magnets. He claims they are 2017, that he is using an old photo. But look at this guys auctions. He takes tons of pictures of his cars. He can't take a picture of the 2017 magnets to prove they are not being misrepresented?
What is a dash 2.2 chassis'????
This needs to be said. I dont know where the idea that there is a Dash 2.2 chassis originated.
There is no Dash 2.2 chassis. There is a Dash 2.0. That's it.
When is the next sale?
Watch this section for news regarding when our next chassis sale will be.
Sunday, April 22nd, 6 PM Central Time - Black chassis, over 2000 will be for sale. NO LIMITS. However, I reserve the right to adjust or cancel any order.
Two thousand of these chassis will have the 2 lam 16 ohm armature. As more groups allow the 3 lam 16 ohm arm, we will be phasing out the 2 lam 16 ohm arm and this will be your last chance to get the 2 lam 16 ohm arm.
In addition to 2-lam 16 ohm chassis, we will make up a few hundred chassis with our 3 lam 5 ohm arm. this arm is similar to an Aurora Mean Green and will be significantly faster than the 2 lam 16 ohm arm. We might have some 5 ohm gear plates available as well.
AFTER THE CHASSIS SALES IN APRIL, WE WILL TAKE A SMALL BREAK. AS WE GET READY TO WIND DOWN THE CHASSIS BUSINESS, THERE WILL BE SOME LARGE SALES, LATE SUMMER THROUGH THE REST OF THE YEAR, MAYBE INTO EARLY NEXT YEAR.
THIS MIGHT BE YOUR LAST CHANCE TO EVER GET DASH CHASSIS.
Please read the FAQ about my retirement and Dash Motorsports closing down the chassis business.
PLEASE READ... Fray has approved a Dash 3 lam, 16 ohm armature. The extra lamination makes this arm weight compatible with the 2 lam 16 ohm Aurora arms.
Updated 3/23/18..... The first run of these armatures is sold out. We will have more in Early June.
