    Default If you are looking for a racing suit, crazy Alpinestars deal on Ebay (half price!)

    http://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_odkw...+Sale&_sacat=0

    Search "Garage Sale" or "alpinestars" under Speedway Motors (http://www.ebay.com/usr/speedway_motors). Note you have to look at the specific manufacturer part number on each listing to find out what the size and color of the suit is, lots of smalls and extra smalls to sort through.

    I called and chatted with a service call lady, extremely polite and professional, she said if you call them directly, they will personally have the suit brought to their desk and photograph it to insure it is the correct one you are looking for.

    It is hard to compare pricing since the suits are discontinued, but by any reasonable measure, even after shipping/tax these suits are half price compared to anywhere in Canada, and even most places in the US. I am getting a suit for $500cad shipped, it would be at least $800 if not $1k cad to order a similiar Sparco or Alpinestars up here.

    I went straight to the speedway website and ordered from there last night so I didn't have to deal with EBay. Got a confirmation email for the order last night, then an email this morning saying there was an error, the product is no longer available, and my order has been cancelled. It was for an Alpinestar Supertech suit for $299, regular price $1699. I guess if something sounds to good to be true it usually is.

    Yea, the supertech pricing you mention is definitely a case of too good to be true. Who knows, it all may be? I will patiently await mine, if it doesn't happen, that's the way she goes.

    Yours was probably a mistake though, the GP Pro/Race that I am ordering is $299US, normally it would be about $550usd to $600, a bit more believable in the savings.

    All said and done, I ended up with a Alpinestar GP Pro. $350US shipped, plus any taxes. They actually have a Canadian order desk to specifically help us Canucks which is super nice, no confusion over postal codes or shipping to a PO box

    I agree that I went straight to the speedway website and ordered from there last night so I didn't have to deal with EBay.
