It seems as if all the former HPI newbies have jumped to the Mugen bandwagon, and are trying to make a bad reputation out of Mugen.

chorner: What's the big deal!? The sideguard stays on there fine. It seems like lately there have been several people bitching and moaning about Mugen any chance they get...you people sound like god damn 4 year olds and a lot of us are getting sick and tired this shit. If you have that big of problem with the part, send it back to Mugen for a FREE replacement cheap skate. If you don't want to send it back you're not going to get a replacement, so deal with it.

Get the clue.

Proper business (like with computers!) if you're new Seagate HDD is defective, you give them your credit car dnumber and they ship you a replacement IMMEDIATELY, then when you get the new HDD you take out the origional defective unit and ship it to them within 30 days ....

EVERY company operates this way. Apparently not this one, or other 'hobby' business?

brutal

Whose your boss?
Could you please keep this to the phone lines. It is something that is a personal case with the company. While a few company reps come here, it would be much easier to deal with over the phones. I realized you must have done this, but we already have seen your complaints... let's not let this drag on so this flame war doesn't last much longer.
We all want R/C Tech to be a peaceful place, so let's try keep it that way.

sorry, I'm out.

Sorry for swearing in the presense of minors, I think you can agree it's justifiable though

Thats the work of some wire cutters, cutting away the plastic around the nut so I could get a pair of pliers around it

Yet another genius at work

Can you read man??? Seriously. It is impossible that this was user error.

Super Mugen

I have never owned an HPI.

I've owned the following:

2x FT AE RC10 buggies
1xRC10GT
1xTamiya TG10R
1xMugen Seiki MTX3
1xNTC3 rear exhuast kit
1xMugen MBX5

HPI? Even the HPI kits I've built for friends went together smoothly without a single hitch

Whats your point?

Let us communatively wonder if he let the locknut completely sit in the locknut guide. Or check to see if the screw as well as the lock nut had clean threads... let us wonder.

I'm out.

i thought you said the nuts was only half way in. if it were really half way in, you should have enough room to put a pair of p liers around the nut.

I actually pushed the locknut down into the hole before I did anything else.

I'm an engineer dude I saw it comming anyway.

They use the same method to tighten down the pivot ball on the steering knuckles ... but the plastic on the knuckles is MUCH harder then the flexible side guards; which is why the nut spun in place instead of being firmly secured so you could screw it in.

Heh, me, I really don't care... but it would be nice to keep these threads within the normal bounds of acceptable conversation.

Data, no .... because I pushed the nuts down into the grove before hand ... and if you had built the kit before yourself, you know that once the screws reach the plastic in the lock nut, you're actually more than halfway there, but not enough to seat the guard tight to the chassis,
