Since its release, there have been a lot of complaints of random malfunctions in just about every new v5 component.
What is the policy for returning v5 components and getting new ones? Does it matter if the parts have been opened and used?
This really does seem unfair that a team can pay $35 for a motor that might randomly blow out right out of the box. It would be extremely reassuring to have some sort of warranty on the v5 parts so that if and when they do break, we're not out several hundred dollars.
The other thing I'd like to say, which obviously is just a suggestion, is for refs reading this to allow for replays in the case that a v5 component blows out. The rule is that a replay will only be issued in the most extreme circumstances at the head ref's discretion, and I think most reasonable head refs would agree that a v5 brain or motor randomly blowing out is an extreme circumstance. It would be incredibly unfair if teams could lose bo1 matches because of inconsistent manufacturing on vex's end.
