glad you got it ok a tip for you when you put it on get some small zip ties and put one on each end to help keep it on the nipples of the  inlets etc.its just extra insurance as silicone gets soft when it gets warm.you can get some tiny zip ties for 99 p in wilkos and they come multi coloured ,probably 100 in a pack or more .keep the water line well clear of your exhaust too or it will melt  >>:-(.

Silicon shouldn't melt at exhaust temperatures Mart. I use it on my exhaust OK, so far anyway

Hi Guys

Just thought I would give you the heads up.  Like Gary has already stated watch what you are buying from USA.  I bought the Zenoah 260 a couple of weeks ago like I said. I paid $150 which included postage. I was lead to believe that was all I had to pay to Bonzi Sports.  I have just received an invoice from FEDEX for £29 for duty/tax charges.  I have emailed Bonzi sports, and i am waiting for their reply.  There is no mention on their Ebay site regarding any extra payments or import fees.  I find this very wrong as I bought the item in good faith and paid the postage.  I thought I would just let you know as all are not being honest with their advertising.

unhappy person  :'(

Hi Guys

this is the response from Bonzi

This is for your country's customs/import duties. We cannot charge for those since they vary from country to country. The £29 is to cover the FedEx shipping charges. We apologize for any confusion. All of our international customers must pay import duties for what they purchase from us! Thanks again. Bonzisports.com

Looks like I have to pay the £29.  Never saw anything on their site or in terms & conditions that i would have to pay extra.  wont be dealing with them again

Hi Guys

Thought I would just let you see the response from RC Jets.  Will look elsewhere

Hi Mate

Sorry we do not accept PayPal from Over Seas dew to fraudulent cards used.

The clutch and delivery will be $115.00 Australian dollars, Mate I donít
know if you will pay Tax you need to ask UK customs. In Australia if we
purchase over AU $1000.00 worth of goods from OS we pay duty and tax.

Hi Joe.

have you tried    rcworldwide-com on Ebay  might be worth a look.

Sorry to hear your story, many of my racing mates have had the same experience and that is why I put the warning up.
Hopfully the total price was still cheaper than buying from the UK.

U.S. company,s  cannot put incorrect details on the shipping paperwork. They face VERY BIG FINES  :police: :police: :police:

Hi Gary

Still cheaper buying abroad rather than UK.  Its not the price i am objecting to but why they cant say on the ads that there might be import duty to pay, I would still have paid the £28 gladly, some companies have too much cloak and dagger but once bitten twice shy.
