Robbie man ... how could I have used TOO MUCH force if the screw is only HALF WAY IN. Its just to the point where it meshes the plastic in the lock nut.
I used too much force? What do you think the moulded recess is for? You cannot use anything to hold the lock nut because of the plastic which is supposed to keep the locknut in place so you can screw it in.
Not to mention, I'm not incompetent when building. I spent pretty much my entire 1st year in Computer Engineering soldering and designing circuit boards with theory, and the math behind it. If you think I cannot follow directions, and cannot put something together you're crazy.
There are atleast 4 mistakes in the manual as well .. showing installation of parts backwards, or half-baked. Step 21, a part is shown backwards ... where you put in the plastic bushings in the hinge pin holders ... backwards -unless theres supposed to be 2mm of slop??-
This is rediculous. I already paid for a WORKING product ...
Give me a friggen break .... I half half the mind to friggen sell all my junk and get out of this hobby. Ridiculous. Between lack of good support, half-bummed efforts of LHS's and local race tracks here, and the attitude of everybody ... what a JOKE.
Support, what support? Problems with quality control in every kit to date .. ALWAYS some little problem or stupid design with each of them.
Robbie C, if you could kindly give me the name of your superior, and the number to contact him it would be appreciated.
There are MANY other companies -and not just RC- that would gladly send you a cheap plastic replacement NO QUESTIONS ASKED. Go to any store, buy something .. see how easy it is to return it.
At least they would do, is take your darn credit card number so that if you 'tried' to screw them over, they could just charge you for the part .... and I know Mugen is capable of taking my credit card number for a spare part
What a joke .....
I started out being nice, and Robbie as well as Kris would probably have agreed (as seen in the previous posts) that I approached the situation with a level head .. but now I'm pissed; so forget that.
Go buy a new part ... you mean like the bearing that was shot and grinding that came with my MTX3 before I ever installed it and was sick of waiting for support from Mugen the first time, so I had to buy the part myself??
Consider Mugen to now be in the better business bureau database.
