Returned for exchangeSo today took back MP2 Q to http://www.skylinemodels.co.uk/ the Uk agents, and they replaced it no problems.
They commented on the fact that they had sold about 150 new stlye and had a few returned. being 3 or 4
But they said it was due to running the engine to lean!
Can't see how that is as my engine only just been rebuilt with the bearing mod and the new exhaust fitted only since then.
Its had about a coolpower gallon through it and is running well rich cause I am running in, well till I started to lose back pressure when the exhaust broke.
When I looked at it more closely it had torn slightly, but was only held in small area.
If that's the improved version, it don't look any different from pictures posted.
Can't see why the section where it breaks has to be the shape like it is, tapered to a thin section, ok would not look as nice but a nice seam welded all the way round would be better
I have an expensive ally framed mountain bike and I don't find seeing the weld a problem with that?
