Just curious and wanting to hear on some outside opinions.
When a kit, engine, tires, etc... have a widespread common problem being reported by the consumers, shouldn't the manufacturer come forward and make it right?
Shouldn't we hold them to a higher standard than we currently do? I see quite a few posts with complaints on issues with this or that kit, or with an engine issue but yet there is a lack of effort by the manufacturers to replace or correct the problem at no cost to the consumer.
I've only been racing competatively for about 3 years and in that time the only instance I have seen where the manufacturer stepped in and correctd a problem with one of their products was Orion. The first version Wasp .12 had a carb issue and Orion replaced the carb at little or no cost other than shipping. Why do we not see more of this?
When you put down $400 or $500 for a kit it should be engineered to work properly right out of the box, as long as you follow the proper assembly instructions. You shouldn't have to wait for the manufacturer to get wind of a widespread problem, have them correct it and then have to pay for a new batch of parts to replace the inferior ones that came with the kit. Am I the only one who sees it that way???
Just looking for other opinions out there,
