Mike HAPPY33 you can't claim again until someone else does, because you have reach the maximum of 10 days.

14. When someone posts a car that can be claimed, it will be up a limit of 5 days and will end at Midnight EST of the fifth full day. If not claimed by then it will go back to the car up before it, unless the Poster can change the car before midnight on the 5th day . When you reach the end of your first5 day period you must change the car to have another 5 days to keep your original claim. This means that there is only a possible max of 10 days to keep your claim.

Unfortunately you changed your car after it expired at midnight 5/20 and your change has been voided. We try our best to give reminders when a claim is going to expire, but it isn't automatic and every now and then one gets by. We need people to help themselves and try to keep track too.


tankemt's offering of the 2015 Dale Earnhardt Jr HALO 1/24 car is back up for claim.

If it's under the 10 day limit why in the hell should it matter? That's a load of BS

I don't participate in this and generally only visit in occasionally out of morbid curiosity. While the original intent was a great idea, I have to say that it has appeared to be to become more of a chore than anything. This is obviously a third party view, but at this point, why keep this alive? In general, there seems to be more people trying to force it than anything. It you want to RAOK something, do it. In addition, since the inception of this, there have been the addition of so many limitations and rules, it makes it difficult to understand. One of the reasons I choose not to participate is, quite frankly, is the confusion on expiring claims and how many cars would have to be claimed before it would be safe to ship. What if my car was claimed, but the next car wasn't, then my car was back up, and then not claimed for five days, and then it expired, and then the previous car was back up.... and so on and so forth.

Obviously, that's the worst case, scenario, but I've seen car after car expire on here (good stuff too!) and members throw stuff up here to "jump-start" this thing more than once. I've seen people claim stuff they didn't really appear to want just to "get it moving again". That's not what PIF or CHC or RAOK's are all about. I was negotiating a sale of a car on FB a couple of weeks ago with a guy and he was having issues getting together the cash, so I RAOK'd the car to him. I've seen other guys (you all know who they are) send people stuff out of the blue. Paying it forward is sending stuff and not expecting something in return.

I honestly think this thing has run it's course.

Agreed at this point, there's so many pointless rules at the moment that are hurting it and killing it more then helping it, everything expires and the thread always dies after a few weeks because no one wants to give anything up and even when they do its not good enough for anything
