RPRU Tractor

Postby Jeff Silvey » Tue Feb 07, 2023 7:26 am

FYI I got my correct Spec cubs yesterday by the US mail. They did what they said they would do to make the tractors correct. RPRU was a great show.
Thanks Spec folks.

The correct ones? There were incorrect ones? I ordered one of each (red and white) last year and received them. Then yesterday, I received two more.
I sent Ellen Paul an email but no response yet. Did I miss something?

Bud, the originals had some mistakes on them so everybody got a new, corrected one. You get to keep the original with the flaws in them.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

The one I got in the mail yesterday says "Red Power Round Up, June 23-25, 2002". I'm not sure who to call about it.

After closer inspection, the ones I just got in have the 2002 date on them, as well. The ones I received last year have the 2022 date on them.

Now, I'm really confused :help:

Sounds like SpecCast is having QA/QC issues.
