OS 55 Engine crank case damage !!

Post by Zaidy on Sat Oct 23, 2010 10:13 am

Some of you may know that my OS 55 self-destructed (Crank case broken in half) a couple of weeks back. After wiping the tears of sadness and coming to realise that I have to buy a new kit with engine as there was no way in hell of OS/RIPMAX will take my word for the damage. I even called Fast lad, without even looking at the photos they said OH AH its crash damage !!

Had a good long chat with Danny and Tom as they both had problems with their engines due to bearing damage... Tom recommended I should send it back.
I Sent the engine back to RIPMAX and in just over a week they sent me a brand spanking new OS 55 no questions asked ... that is what I call service.
Well Done RIPMAX/OS
Very Happy cheers
