Hey, I just realized I did not follow through with my results, I hate when that happens, you find someone with the same issue read through the post and never know the outcome.

Anyway, the ebay seller sent me 2 replacements at no charge, I still need to check the flow on them. had the car out in the dunes, works great!
I broke the bolt in my spool carrier but that is another story, not a major thing, was able to use a strap and drive it back to camp, caused some damage to the sprocket, chain seems ok, new sprocket should arrive today or tomorrow, will have it back together Saturday and headed back out to Glamis Thursday
