Default RC Raven- Great experience

Well, first of all, I basically stole all of my RC Raven upgrades at RCX, for what they were selling stuff for. The fit and finish was great (with one exception that I will get to later). Well, I took the truck out on it's maiden voyage last night after all of the upgrades. I put on new 'Power Racing' shocks from RCX as well. On landing the first jump (high speed, maybe 3' in the air), the truck blew out the bottom shock mounts on ALL 4 rear shocks! I lost one of the RC-Raven progressive springs that I purchased in a set.

I sent RC-Raven an email last night at 9:00PM PST, explaining that I lost a spring. I received an email at 9:30 PM PST!!! saying I would get some new springs in the mail shortly. Even though it wasn't RC Raven's part that failed, they are sending me replacement parts!!! How cool is that!

I also sent an email to Power Racing requesting new bottom shock mounts since the factory ones were stripped.

:: Dale quickly 'RED' threadlocks front shock mounts!!! ::

I am hoping that Power Racing sends me some replacements and responds quickly.

Now, the only beef I had with RC-Raven's skidplates- They stick out farther then the bumpers. If you leave it like this, you WILL break a bulkhead when you take a direct impact on the skid- I know- I did it.

Bend the skids to ensure they are behind the bumpers.

A few minor setbacks, but nothing I can't get through!

Power Racing came through too! Replacement parts are on their way! I got a response from them in around 12 hours! That isn't too shabby either.

That reflects GREAT on both companies!
