    Got to love it !!

    I've been looking for a used 7al3 box posted a wanted ad and you wouldnt bieleve the people that message or call me. In my ad I stated I will need pictures of it I wont buy something without seeing it and I also stated that I can buy a new one with the Jegs Discount for $534.00 so far 2 hang up after I tell them I wont pay $500 for something I can buy new for $34.00 more and 2 guys telling me they paid $640.00 for the ones they have and no way would they take much less being they are still new. Its amazing how many people want new or almost new price for something that still no matter if new in the box or not is used being its not a jegs summit or even local speed shop.

    I personally hate people like this, if i say pictures it means I must see a picture I wont do it without been there and been burnt that way.
    Price is also said in the ad. Why do people even bother to message or call me when they are over priced or have no pictures is beyond me !!

    Just venting here sorry guys ! 8)

    hammertime,

    I got one for you, been used for three years so I beleive that means it appreciates because I owned it . I'll take 650.00 for it and believe this, I will even pay for shipping (what a deal). No seriously hammertime, I know exactly what you mean man, sometimes you have to just laugh at those types of people. Happy turkey day.

    hope it works. I wouldn't buy used electronics unless I knew the guy.(just my opinion)

    A buddy of mine had one he bought new for his dragster that would not work right...it ran fine sitting there but as soon as you hit 6200 it acted like it was on the chip..but wasn't. Sent it back to MSD..they said nothing wrong with it. Tried again...same thing.Sent it back again...MSD said nothing wrong with it Got another new one hooked it up exactly the same NO MORE PROBLEMS.
    NOW...we put the "nothing wrong with it" box in my car...GUESS WHAT? 6200 rpm it went on the chip(even with no chip in it) . SO obviously that box had issues that MSD couldn't even figure out...so that scares me away from any used ignition box. Most will tell you if the car runs the box is good...well I now know different.

    anyway sorry for rambling on.....I was just venting a little. Good luck with the box

    I usually wont buy used but even the new stuff sometimes has problems. I've yet to buy a delay box or anything that didnt work but I am sure sometime I will get hosed on a deal. The guys that are switching to digital is the guys I was looking for on this box because I knew then it was used and worked.
