The title says it all. rolleyes.gif

I am considering buying this block HERE for my two lightnings and was wondering if anyone else has got their hands in one and tested it.
So, anyone?biggrin.gif

Cool, they've got stock! I've been looking at that every few days and it's always been zero. Hopefully you'll get some responses from users but I think it's fairly new still..

Hopefully it won't turn out to be an expensive set of paper weights!

Just what I've been waiting for!! Plz IM me or post some pics here when you get them installed. Also, how do you order from their site? Do you have to log in before you can add things to cart?

Will fill you guys in as soon as I get them!
Since I'm in Japan they shouldn't take long to arrive (from Taiwan).
Their site is a bit tricky and they are going on one week vacations (Chinese new year) from tomorrow so I used email and phone to hurry things up a bit. biggrin.gif

Something odd with their site.

I can't find a way to put anything into the cart and I can't find a way to confirm postage. They've confirmed they will ship to Australia but how much / long will it take, no reply (but I'm guessing they're on holidays now). The shipping tab just goes to payment methods .. returns and Q&A has no information and now I'm getting all these emails that I can't just unsubscribe from (as far as I can tell), need to email them (have nothing ticked for mailing/notifying me).

add: and what's the difference between the 'normal' block and the ones listed with ICE? All I can see is the colour but I can't see they added ICE just for that reason..

They only do email orders.
So, you mail them saying the item, quantity, your name and address and they will give you a shipping cost and, if you go ahead, an invoice.
If you pay by credit card, then the purchase will show up on your shopping cart (after they receive your email and process it) and from there you can follow a link to pay.
If you go through Paypal, as I've done, you only get the invoice and using that you send them the cash (standard paypal way).
Shipping for me in Japan is EMS and it should take about 3 days to arrive.
You should check the Australia Post website and make a reverse simulation of shipping (as if you are sending to them) to get an estimate of the shipping time.

They seem to be in a bit of a mess since their server refuses emails most of the time stating that their storage space is full biggrin.gif.

I could get to them only by mailing through their webpage on the "contact us" link. rolleyes.gif

Let you know in about 2 weeks (since their on vacation they told me the thing will ship only on the 30th) how it turns out. wink.gif
