Umm… they probably can’t ship all 4000 backorders at the same time :lol: I’d give em a day or two to sort it out. I clicked the button right when orders opened up

Chatting with them now. Looks likes our order and $400 was overlooked somehow.

Guy responded and said "thanks for catching this mistake".

So have you been getting the monthly email asking if you want to cancel the back order? That’s really strange for a big company like that to lose an order

We have been getting that email too. Responded every time and confirmed. But if we didnt contact them today, we would have been screwed out of ours. And we were one of the very first ones to preorder. Not sure what else to say.

Yup, if we had done that it's in stock online there tonight, could buy it right now, but we still don't have our pre order or know where our $400 is

Yeah I was actually bitten by this once when a full order took 6 months to process and hit my card when I wasn't expecting.

I cancelled my AMain preorder after about the third email asking if I wanted to keep waiting.

RPP delivers again! This arrived today. With an added bonus I hadn’t heard about, you can paint/decal it as an Turbo Optima Mid, it comes with an extra decal set and black wing.

I understand but your not one of the coxbros. If there is a screwing in life it happens to us. Every time all the time.
