It seems disingenuous to claim that they knew their product is the cause of broken casings. They likely knew there was a risk of breaking, but that it doesn't always break, which is why they're offering it as an add-on item that's purchased separately. I mean, if they included the billet casing to begin with, they would have just charged $850 + the price of the casing anyhow as a base price lol

If they already wanted a Helix OD, why not? People have found ways to break everything lol. Who knows, maybe the people reporting vacuum pump cover issues with OD already had covers that were (unknown to anyone) prone to breaking versus other covers. The beauty of a cast part.
