Nope, totally different axle issue. Manufacturer didn't follow the design given to them (huge surprise) and then installed the axles wire outlet in a way that causes some setups to pinch the wires against the drop out causing them to short/cut. They were also supposed to be 16mm from the manufacturer in the first place just like the first batch sold months ago.
Gotta love Chinese manufacturing and their QC.
Looks like everyone got burned by axle issues I hope these incidents are isolated for everyone who put down their hard earned money.
