he will if you tell him too, but ours came back like new again. he will let you know if you need anything like o-rings or anything like that. he also checks all the tolerance. he does great work and is very honest.

Yeah if im correct ive talked to a guy on youtube named zixxer1 i beleave and we talk a bit he has vids of the speed shop i think unless its another shop cant really remember. Im ganna send him a message after i buy some new servos and transponder. Also btw i took my plug out and it turns over fairly easy but plug in and it is kinda hard. With plug out i try with my pnky and its hard but the finger after thati can do it and once i hit tdc if i spin it fastenough it will make a pop sound.
