8043 Motorized Excavator Solution Near???

The people over at TechnicBRICKS have posted a communication from TLG about the faulty 8043.  Check it out.

I put a battery box in the machine and ran it literally for about 30 seconds and then took it apart.  I didn't want to ruin the motors as many have already done.  But you can be assured that I will be contacting the Lego Group for my Service Bag to fix it.

I am actually surprised that they were able to fix it.  While I was building mine I noticed that the movement mechanisms were packed quite tight.  It didn't seem that a fix would be possible.  Kudos to TLG.
