    This does not surprise me given P4 crash damage photos I've seen. The new shell is brittle. I've seen several photos of nacelles completely snapped off. With earlier generation shells they usually bend but I've never seen one sheered completely off.

    On a positive note these cracks are on an edge and are more aesthetically unpleasant than functionally damaging. The P4 motor mounting area is much thicker & two layers thick on a P4 vs P3. Unfortunately you have to do some minor disassembly to check.
