Default Received My Syclone Today

Well the day finally came and I received my Himoto Syclone!

Here is a picture:


Preliminary checks show so far everything is pretty good. Unfortunately the seller sent me the wrong engine. I was promised an sh.18, but received the infinity .18. One of the struts is also blown out of the box and the other 3 are leaking....

I'm hoping I can get things resolved.

Yea I bought it from exportpro, which I believe is Himoto directly...
I'm sure it'll be a while before I receive a reply from Honk Kong.

Looking at the worst case, what company would share the same seals as the Himoto struts? I've rebuilt struts before so I can always do that unless the seams are leaking on the housings....

Other than that I can't wait to fire it up!

If you bought it from exportpro you have nothing to worry about, just take some pictures of it to send them. You can to go any hardware/home depot type of store and get a set of assorted small or rings to work.

Dont use it or put fuel in it until after you have contacted them.

lol, i know but I dont want him to have any problems. I have had some pretty tall tales given to me about broken things but after it was ran. My shocks are broken out of the box but there is dirt all over the car, then you ask how did the dirt get on it if its not used and usually you dont get a reply or you hear the "it was only on the first tank breaking it in"

No worries I will not start the car. I just gave it a look over. I realize that running the car leaves it open for a lot of questions.

I did send them pictures with my email, so hopefully things will work out!

Thanks! I'm digging the colors. I was hoping for the green wheels too. Hopefully I wont have to send it away for the engine exchange, I've become attached to it lol

EDIT:

I had another question. I noticed 2 unused bolt holes on the chassis. They are countersunk like something should be there. I've highlighted them in the picture here. Is there supposed to be something here? I've checked the manual, but I didn't see anything.

EDIT EDIT:
Never mind, looked at a picture on the himotoracing.com and it's the same way there.
