Default review of new hpi firestorm....

So, just got the new firestorm 10t, did the break in, dialed in the carb and let me just say that it has INSANE acceleration and can do "on-demand" wheelies. on my 7th tank (second day of running it) i did a full speed run and all of a sudden one wheels stopped turning. i removes the transmission and found the planetary gears (which hpi boasts are "all metal") were in 50 pieces, totally destroyed!!! i called hpi's warranty line and apparently all of there reps are busy, i waited for 15minutes and gave up and left a message. its too bad because the truck seems to be very solid and well built. anyone else have this problem? if so did hpi send the part out free?
