Hi Steve, Im really sorry the part for the chassis was defective. It just so happened that I had the same issue today when trying to put together a chassis. There must have been a bad batch somewhere along the way, because all others seem assemble perfectly.Please send an email to help@3drobotics.com with your information and exactly which part it is you need replaced and first thing on monday I will personally take care of it. Seems like you are in Cali so you should get it in no time. Again sorry this happened.

-Alan
