    Not sure if this is news or not if not please move it to the right spot if it is not.

    Nate from Fortmax.com formerly Fortmax.net to stop stocking Transformers and is getting ready to clearance everything out.Due to lack of sales and site hits.I've been trading with this guy for years and have never had the normal problems like Chris from Wheeljackslab.

    He is a great person and is willing to deal and haggle on some stuff.I messed up an order and asked for the wrong part he was more then willing to trade it back in and even covered the extra shipping.I've not seen any posts about his shop on here any where but in my opinion he is one of the best parts trader and seller on the net.Check out his site and clearance sale.

    If he gets more hits he might stay open.He has thousands of parts in stock!

    In his news letter it said he is going to sell out all inventory and just try to carry max parts to see how that goes and if that don't work he is done.I think he over invested his funds in ebay.But keep watching his site he is gonna clearance out everything.I heard this first hand.

    Such a shame for a reputable dealer to have to do this. I wish him all of the best :thumb

    Might be a way for the rest of us to get our hands on affordable Fort Maxes, or at least the important accessories.
