    Holy butt brownies! I just went through a battle to get a new engine under warranty for mine because of paint peeling. The thing overheated twice and blistered the paint and the fasteners and the block started corroding. Did you have a battle like I did?

    WOW i wish I would have known, my paint started peeling off on the first 3 months of my rxp back when I bought it, I figured it would be a silly claim and they would have told me to go beat sand.

    Rxp260x engine paint ain't ant better. Mine was peeling within months. I've already had an engine rebuild (not a replacement) because of a faulty IC leaking water into engine from just about new. They didn't tackle the paint issue at that time. I thought I might media blast and paint the engine at the point I start upgrading the internals once I'm outside the warranty.

    I had two overheats. Both blew out all the closed loop coolant. First one was a ride plate fitting broke. Immediately after that was fixed the intercooler failed.
