Re: [EVDL] Broken motor advertised as "New" on ev tradin post

I called and left voicemail about him needing to update or retract the ad
before I emailed EV list. He may have accidently uploaded the wrong
picture...if so, hopefully he'll get it updated so he doesn't get a bad rep.

I'm sure he's not trying to scam, otherwise he'd found a good picture online
and photoshopped it a little for use on the tradin post.
