Need new motors? Grind a gearbox? Adding teeth to a pinion?

Just got a pair of the banebot 775 18v version yesterday and one of the motors has a couple of the fan fins broken when received. Should I return and get a replacement or this issue won't affect the normal use of the motor. The Rep said it won't affect anything but I just want to make sure.

I don't know enough about the airflow inside to know how much impact it will really have on cooling.

That said, the factory DID put all of the fins on for a reason. At the least, it will now be slightly out of balance... :lol:

If you have to pay to ship it back, then it's probably not worth t worrying about it. Otherwise I'd press for "like-new" parts...
