I have to say, this is impressive. When most R/C companies release a car with defective parts, they redesign them and then require the people who bought their "leading edge" technology to pay even more money just to get their car or truck right. It's cool to see CEN step up to the plate and handle it the way it should be handled. Its even more impressive that their carepack includes two servos and a fail safe.

From what I have been reading about that truck, the care package should include a new engine as well.

that "free of charge" bit is the best bit - it puts them one up from Tamiya.

when Tamiya realised the drivetrain weakness of the juggernaut 1 they discontinued the product, updated it and released the juggernaut 2, however those owners of the juggernaut 1's had to buy a care package at a cost of over $100 having already spent $300+ on the kit.....Tamiya should have done this for free....evidently money was more important to them than service in that instance.....

also I have heard the engine probs are at least partly due to the lack of break in instructions with the very 1st batch, when the engine seems to need a particularly long break in procedure......

Becauae there are no known issue with the NX76 engine, so it is not included in the care package. NX76 engine is very reliable and of course, POWERFUL. We do have a few random cases regarding to engine bearing, however they were all taken care off. Break in instruction are included and also available online now.

CEN R. - would you mind having a look at this (http://www.radiocontrolzone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=173390) and see if I'm steering him wrong, and offer any assistance you have time for?
