Does it count if you trade a beat Stampede roller and an XXX buggy roller for an XXX-SCT?

I bought 2 Savage XS Flux's for Christmas.  Run them for 3 and 5 Mins respectively.  Both Crapped out.  First one melted the Speed control, second one thrashed the slipper clutch.  Cannot say I very impressed with my $800+ purchases.  And HPI is not doing much to help.  I just now got the info to send them away, at my cost I might add. 

I also got 2 battle heli's.  Those still work great.
