Hello. I need some help. I just bought a brand new MBX Comp and I followed all the instructions word for word on setting it up, etc. I went to start it and while I was holding it , the car overaccelerated, and I had to turn it off. After that, it wouldn't start again. There is no compression now. When I move the car I can hear something loose. I have a feeling it is the connecting rod. That's what everyone tells me. Kind of sucks I took it out of the box and already had a problem. I called OFNA but they are closed until Monday. Please help.
Thanks

You need to fill out the technical support form. Send the engine in without: air filter, clutch or flywheel, also no engine mounts. You also need to send in a copy of the receipt with the completed form.

Thanks for your reply. I did do all that and they will be receiving engine today. Technician did say though I could leave mount on. Just wondering how long it will take to receive my engine back. Really want to ryn the car for first time. I was waiting a while to buy it and was psyched to break it in and run it. Thanks again
