Default Candy Wheels!

ok sue me if I'm not the first one to post about this, but i got my parts from dave today and i noticed as i was putting everything back in the box to take it to my room i noticed a tiny little daves like candy package i open it up and a small piece of candy was in side, i did not taste it, smells like nut/chocolate, anyways seemed a bit outta place so thought i would ask to see if anyone else got this mystery candy?



Look at last post

After about a year, you will have those cadies and stickers in every part of your house. I find them all over my garage and in my full size truck. Makes for a great surprise.

Damn straight! Everytime I buy ANYTHING DDM, they are always good enough to put candy with the products! Gotta love it!

(At first, I thought they were moisture absorption balls![&:] )

It is awesome that they do this. It's a very simple and probably cheap way to say "thank you for your business with us", and it is just enough to show they go the extra mile to satisfy their customers. You just don't get that from many companies anymore. When I got my first order from them I know I was impressed to see a candy inside the box.

well, instead of making a new thread i'll fill this one out, well since about 2 months ago my baja shredded its tire and been sitting on the shelf, i thought it was time to get her back on the road, but i hit a few bumps along this road, while sitting i attempt to make my own wheels, failed attempt at this, and in the process i lose a few parts and instead of mail ordering i made my own, so here his my baby riding on the mini mx v2's.

what i started with


and now




Right side proper spacer

left side home mad
3washers2bearings1waser then held snug with 1nut+washer+nut with red lock tight.

a little support for ddm and hostile

I love those candies.
Last order I bought I think I spent about 10 bucks on them just to round off my order to an even number
