HOT RC - ECX brand 1:10 Scale 2WD Radio Controlled Cars

The Hazard!

The ECX1024 clutch slipper pads in the ECX series of 1:10 radio-controlled vehicles contain chrysotile asbestos.

Asbestos fibers may be released from the slipper pad in the vehicle through friction and users may be exposed to asbestos fibers if the vehicle is disassembled for repair or maintenance.

Exposure to asbestos can result in asbestos related diseases.

What to do...

Owners of affected vehicles should not attempt to remove or replace the slipper pads or disassemble and maintain their vehicles.

Please return your vehicle to the dealer from where it was purchased and or directly H.O.T. LTD for repair.
