Probably a bad idea since 1. it's dishonest and you will go to hell for lying and 2. Novak company reps and drivers are on this forum every day and will see this post and know you are lying. Just 'fess up, ask nicely, and I bet they will help you out as best they can. And next time, use a connector that doesn't let you reverse the polarity.

My Buddy sent his Novak in telling them he hooked it up backwards, they told him they would charge him $20 or something like that but returned it fixed with no charges. Novak really knows how to look after and keep customers.

LRPs warranty works like this. I ordered my speed control early to make sure I had it. Two months later racing starts and about race #5 the control smokes, it never did run right, always hot. I sent it in and LRP says 1 week over warranty period too bad. Then they want to charge me $30 to mail the melted piece of crap back.

+1 on the LRP, 3 months to return my speed controller only to tell me it's been tested and working. I'm pretty sure it wasn't working before else i don't think i woulda sent it in...
(Trying to cover up the fact that some of their products are faulty?)
