	Speaking of eBay, I was wondering if I could get some opinions on 

	I respect a seller's desire not to accept paypal because of the fees. 
But wouldn't it be nice to accept a personal check?


	This isn't as far off topic as it might seem. The auction is for a 
Golden Arrow, a circa 1989 Radio Shack RC car. I made the mistake of 
letting a neighbor kid try mine. Within 15 seconds he had driven it 
under an approaching Mustang. The damage was minimal; just crushed the 
left front wheel and scuffed up the bottom a bit. I repaired it with 
some replacement cars I bought on eBay a few years ago. Just though I'd 
replenish my supply.


P.S.:  Given the recent discussions of CNC machines I think this would 
be the ideal place to ask:  The steering is getting kinda sloppy. One of 
the problems is that the steering servo output shaft has to much play in 
it. By that I mean it is kinda loose in the outside bearing. Looks like 
the shaft itself is wearing. The gears seem fine. They actually did a 
good job with the gears. The teeth on the gear close to the motor are 
really skinny. The teeth on the output shaft are nearly a quarter inch wide.
