The Almost-Annual Matt Armbruster Memorial


Terms and Conditions

No, really, read this. It may save you a lot of confusion and headache. It may very well save your life. OK, here goes.

Operating Hours:

The Internet is on, worldwide, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year regardless of geography, weather, or holidays. And while we'd all like to believe there's some state-of-the-art bank of automated ordering computers that trigger gleaming rows of robots to package and load the trucks as soon as we hit the "Enter" key, the reality is that most of the work is done by people. Like you. They go home, have dinner with their families, and sleep. Sometimes they go out with their friends, go to church, or go to the store. Then they come back to work from Monday to Friday, 9am to 6pm and do whatever it takes to take care of you and get your order out in a timely manner.


Here at the Big Wheel Rally Store we strive to processes your order and have it ready for shipment within 3 days of when the order is placed. That being said, this is real life and on a rare occasion, that may not happen. But we'll let you know right away.

Adult Size versions of any rig you see here are another story. They are customized by hand from the stock models, and as such require quite a bit more time than slapping a shipping label on a box. Due to the overwhelming response we've gotten to the Adult Size Big Wheels, we've had to adjust our production schedule and processes.  Since each Adult Size Big Wheel is modified by hand and parts customized as needed, we will be doing a single, large production run each month.  As of July 2005:

  • Orders are currently running approximately 6 weeks, prior to shipment.
  • We wil of course send you a tracking number just as soon as we've got it.

As always, if you've got an urgent need, contact us right away!  Thanks for your understanding!


All orders are shipped FOB from our dock.  What's that mean?  We're not responsible for the shipment once it leaves our facility.  Any issues that arise need to be settled between the recipient and the shipping company. Pretty standard stuff.

Note that the number of days that an item takes to ship are business days (no weekends) and begins the day after the shipment is picked up.

For example, an order placed on Monday is filled and ready for shipment on Wednesday.
It's going Ground (5 business days).


5 business days from Wednesday is Thurs-Fri-[sat-sun]-Mon-Tues-Weds.

Canceling an Order (REFUNDS):

Orders that are placed & paid for, then canceled before shipment may be refunded the whole amount less a 15% order cancellation fee. Refunds requested more than 60 days after the order was placed may be refunded the whole amount less a 18% order cancellation fee.

Once it's shipped (RETURNS):

Only unopened, unassembled merchandise will be accepted for return within 30 days of purchase. Customer is responsible for all shipping costs. Upon receipt, the item purchase price (not including shipping) less a 15% restocking fee will be credited to the customer.

Please with the items you'd like to return and we'll generate an RMA (Return Materials Authorization) number for you with shipping instructions.

Items returned in any other condition may only receive a partial refund, or none at all.

International Shipments:

Due to various tarriffs and import rules depending on the county, we cannot guarantee the delivery schedule of shipments to countries outside of the United States.  Basically it gets there when it gets there.  Of course we can upgrade shipping from economy to global priority which will get it there fasters.  Please be aware that the duties, taxes, and any other import or delivery fees are the sole responsibility of the recipient.

WARRANTIES (Stock Vehicles):

Manufacturer's warranties will be honored by said manufacturer. Check them out to see what each of their warranties is. Manufacturer contact info is available here.

WARRANTIES (Upgrade Kits & Super Modified Rigs):

Yeah, right. The modifications and kits offered here will let you do things to and on a Big Wheel that it was never intended to do. And you probably will.

And if that's not enough, try this one on: Do not enter, read, view, download, browse, imagine, purchase from, or even think about this site.

WARRANTIES (Used Items):

Used items are sold as-is with no warranty implied or offered.
