I completely agree with you. Take care of this issue off of the forms first. And if...... just if this is a legitimate crack it's the first I heard of and I'm positive Evil will take care of you.from a quick glance, it looks like something hit that spot ,not like a "normal" crack.
do you recall any incident where it could have happened ?
my guess is you will be offered a crash replacement,not sure a warranty is the case here but good luck !
also,in the future i would suggest waiting for an official reply before posting so soon.sure, you dont owe nothing to anyone ,but a post like this can hurt a small company like Evil more than you can imagine .
....PS For those suggesting I was stupid for posting a thread before sorting the issue with Evil were right - this thread was cited as "not helping my case" in the initial discussions. Thankfully UK law and a decent LBS outweigh such a response.
