This black leather tiptronic wheel is still for sale and I'm willing to sell it for a reasonable price to one of you forum people because we're like family. Send me a private message if you are interested.

Otherwise, I'll put it on ebay over the weekend.

Sold on ebay - $200.00. Considering I paid $81.00 including shipping for it off Ebay, I'd say I did well on this buy/sell!

Oh, my friend, you have obviously not learned a very important principle of buying and selling items: Buy low, sell high. I bought that tip wheel at a ridiculously low price on Ebay so I could use it for a few months and sell it, making enough profit to buy the non-tip wheel I really needed. Tip wheels on Ebay are going for $200 right now. I gouged no one... I just made far more profit than you might have expected, which brings me to the second most important principle of buying and selling:

If you don't make a profit off friends and family, you will always be broke. Now I am not saying rip their heads off by overcharging them and taking advantage of them... but I am saying that selling goods for their actual value to friends and family instead of giving them "invoice deals" on every thing you sell will keep you out of the poor house.

Now let me add just one last comment. My third post in this thread stated that if anyone was interested, they should PM me with a reasonable price... had I been offered a reasonable amount (even one below $150) from anyone on this forum, I would have sold it to them.

Since I had no takers here, I wrote some good description copy and sold that rascal overnight with a buy-it-now button.

All he was saying is that he would offer it at a better price for us than on Ebay. He's not exactly forcing you to buy it...

When people risk their lives, shouldn't it be for something very important?
Well, it better be.
But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Lots of people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well.
When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.
