Default New Tmaxx 3.3

I finally bought a new 3.3 for my tmaxx last night. I put it in and was heading out to break it in. But then i was screwing the HSN in to re adjust for breakin and noticed the whole assebly was spinning. Not just the needle. Then i tried to turn the HSN out and it started unscrewing the assembly out of the carb housing. So i pulled it out and the carb assembly and the threads were stripped out of the housing. I called my hobby shop and they told me i had to send it into traxxas. I told him i was not going to wait 2 weeks to run my brand new motor especialy when it wasnt my fault. He told me to bring it in to him today and he will see what he can do. Dont you guys think that they should take care of it, like just swap me carbs??? I have a big race this weekend and i can not wait 2 weeks to get my carb back from traxxas.... What should i do??

Either buy a new hsn assembly or another carb, or rob a carb or HSN from one you already have. If you have to have it right now.
