I fixed the light bleeding issue by putting some black paint in the crack.

Easy ?  Yes. But no fix should be necessary.

YMMV

Mine was DOA out of the box (no lights, no sound, no motor). Jeremy at Rapido suggested that I remove the shell and verify that the decoder hadn't come loose during shipping, so that's what I did. And although the decoder didn't seem loose to me, pushing down on it did indeed get the thing running. Kinda strange.
