Default HPI RS4 Engine blown up after one run.

So I have a brand new hpi rs4, ran it one time, and very slowly too. Went to start it the second time and notice fuel spraying out the side of the engine. It turns out the whole side of the engine block is cracked. I tore it down and inside where the crank meets the roto start shaft is in peaces and making the piston arm break through the side of the engine. Any input on this problem would be great. Has anyone had this happen to them. Thanks
