The funny thing I'm seeing here is that no matter what the "hobby" is, theres some people who think manufactures should have a warranty that covers their abusive use. I spent the last 7 years racing R/C NITRO offroad and you would swear that some people paid millions for their toys as they kept wanting warranty coverage on every thing.. just went out and beat the shit out of their trucks but blamed the manufacture for the flaw. Seeing the same here with these buggies and also same with the sled heads. Yes they do have service bullitins on these, I've had my fare share with Cat, but it was taken care of. Yes their getting high priced, but take your $20,000 truck/car out there and beat the shit out of them and see how far your 100,000 mile warrenty gets you. bet not far after they see what your actually doing to your car..Break downs do piss me off,but I also think consumer Joe also needs to do his part as to how well these toys will work and last. there my rant is over, didn't win the lottery again, have to go to work now.
