Unhappy Hirosaka DC-1 servo died

I have a Hirosaka DC-1 low profie servo i bought for my Xray X1. It was brand new (As well as the car kit) and the servo only lasted about a dozen practice laps before it just died. I tried turning the switch on and off, i made sure that the plug was in the receiver properly......and nothing.

What would have caused this? Has this happened to anyone elese with this particular servo?

well....this did't exactly happen to me, but...

I had the same servo in my brand new Xray XB4 and it lasted about 30 minutes if that. A piece of the plastic top portion (closest to spline) snapped in a critical point where one of the gears rotated on. This caused that particular gear to destroy the other ones it meshed with. needless to say...I had no steering all of a sudden and that was why. Not impressed. I bought a Spektrum s6040 and haven't had ANY issues. Too bad....I thought being the name "Hirosaka" it would be good stuff...I think it's all cheap stuff re-branded with his name on it. The motors are made by speed passion.
