TOMMY THE CRACKING YOU SPEAK OF ,IS NOT A RESULT OF "OVERHEATING" AS RCI SHELLS ARE TEMP TESTED AT OVER 200 DEGREES FOR MORE THAN 24 HOURS. OVERHEATING IF YOU COULD EVEN REACH THOSE TEMPS IN THE TRUCKS,WOULD RESULT IN WARPPING ,IF ANY THING..AND I HAVE NEVER SEEN THAT.I OWNE AND ABUSE 4 DIFFERANT ACRYLIC SETS MADE BY RCI, AND NOT ONE CRACK..MORE LIKELY WHAT CAUSED YOUR PROBLEM WAS WHEN DW DRILLED YOUR SHELLS WITH THE STANDARD WOOD PROCEDURE.YOU NEED FASTER SPEEDS FOR THE DRILLS AS WELL AS DIMOND TIP DRILL BITS.AND THEN THESE GUYS AT DW, AND THEY ARE GREAT AT WHAT THEY DO, OVER TIGHTENS LUG SCREEWS A WEE BIT CUZ WOOD HAS GIVE AND ACRYLIC DONT.THEN REMEMBER,YOU GOT ROADIES HANDLING OUR DRUMS ,NOT ALWAYS WITH THE GREATEST OF EASE..BIGGER THE DRUM, THE WEAKER THE OVER ALL SHELL WILL BE IN ACRYLIC OR WOOD.AND A CRACK HAPPENS, IF THEY ARE CLEANED WITH WINDEX IT WILL EAT INTO THE DRUM WAKENING THAT AREA. NOTHING LOOKS LIKE OR SOUNDS LIKE ACRYLIC, ITS ALL ITS OWNE UNDER LIGHTS.EVERYTHING HAS A CERTAN CARE IT NEEDS, THEY ARE JUST DIFFERANT ANIMALS..AND JOHN GOOD DOSNT WANT TO OUT SOURCE DRUM SHELLS ANY MORE. NOW EVERY ONE WANTS ACRYLICS FROM RCI,OOOPS I MEAN DW, AND YOUR REALY JUST GETTING THIER HARDWEAR,BUY FROM THE SOURCE AND LET THE FOLKS WHO KNOW THIER CRAFT DRILL AND ASSEMBLE THE DRUMS FOR YOU AND NO WORRIES..TAKE IT FROM ME, I VE HAD WOOD DRUMS DELAMINATE FROM HARSH HEAT TO COLD CONDITIONS, AND FORGET HUMIDITY AND MOISTURE...JUST WIPE DOWN ACRYLIC AND LIKE NEW..THAKS AND PIECE STEVE SMITH..RESIN..RCI ENDORSEE
