it's block 10 -block 15  , you have to modify it for another block, but is easy to do.

Thats always the same with auctions. Those who can not be online while working etc. don't have any chance to get such items... the only possible thing so bid about the 10x price as in startign and hope then. But thats life...  :brickwall:

That's where sniper sites get their money.
You put your (maximum) bid via a sniper site.
The sniper site tests the bandwidth to the auction site (eBay),
and just one or 2 seconds before the auction ends, BWAMMM the sniper site puts in your bid.
If it is the highest you win, because nobody can be that fast to put in another higher bid.
If you really, and then I mean REALLY want the item you have to do what you already said:
put in a very high bid ... but often there is always somebody with deeper pockets than yours  :bat:

For my other hobby (PDP-11 stuff) I usually use a sniper site. Only in the very beginning (more than 10 years ago) I got out of bed at 4 in the morning  ::), just to try outbid the latst offer. Never had any luck, till I found out why ...
I use snipeswipe (www. in front and .com at the end). If you are outbid, it does not cost a penny, if you win, you pay 1% of the auction price.

happy bidding and good nights of sleep,  ;D

Thats why I normaly make parts on my own. Other weise I can't pay this hobby. I dont have much money, but I have time. And so I just need plans an measurements then it runs. Also testet out making a throttle arm for less than $150... but than those fu... bankers made the $ and ? going down like a shut down F-16 in bosnia and now the material is so expensive here for foreign that it is not longer worthwile...  :-\

And if you are lucky someone sells you plans for 300$  :wacko:
