personally i wouldn't worry. you have to remember, china is not like the US at all. here when an estimate on shipping is given, its a close estimate. when it comes to china and shipping, expedited 3-4 shipping could turn out to be 8-10 day shipping and the best thing is, well the frankly don't care. i have never bought fast shipping from china because personally i feel like it is hit or miss on if i will get the service i paid for.
also, your not the only one who cant reach max, i emailed him a week ago and haven't heard back yet but its not super important......yet, in a few days it will be. there is another member who cant reach him either so check into if it is a Chinese holiday or something.
