The shops I typically use do not have what I need at the moment, so I checked out Magna, which has an extensive online store. However, since I’ve never used them, I wanted to make sure they have what I need.
Unfortunately, half-dozen calls I’ve made have been unanswered, and the message I left has not been returned. So my question is–is this a good site? Does anyone here have experience with them?
Thanks for the reply, Steven. I called again and left a detailed message.
The site shows their merchandise, and they carry an extensive inventory, but since no one I know has used them, I want to get some feedback before I place an order.
Since I live in the eastern US, I use Comet for 90% of my needs, and they are phenomenal. Over the years I have also ordered a bit from Acceleration, Fastech, J3, and Franklin, the first two of which have great webstores. Every time I need to call either of these, someone answers and helps me out–it puts me at ease knowing someone is manning the phones.
Curtis, I called Acceleration after I found out that Comet didn’t have the part I needed. They didn’t have it either.
I’m looking for a set of Douglas cast aluminum wheels for a rain set-up. Comet had the rears (180), which I purchased, but not the fronts (130). Both Comet and Acceleration said they are on back order.
I guess if you’ve hit a wall you could do a web search for douglas kart wheels (or the DWT part number) and go down the list of results.
Looks like fastech, margay and bmi karts stock douglas wheels, hopefully they will have the 130’s you need
I’ve done business with Sven, but I’ve found that he only stocks some of what he lists on his site. Some items are relisted and he drop ships them. If an item appears to be out of stock on most web sites and Magna shows it in stock, it’s probably not.
If Sven doesn’t reply, he’s probably at a race. He’s been very helpful and if I lived in FLA I’d give him more business.
