15 gallons? Dude, you should check the bearings atleast every 2 gallons at the most. You must not be racing hard, to get that kind of mileage out of your motor, when you arent checking the internals out.

I actually just hit 10 gallons with my VZB today, ceramic bearings, original p/s/r. It still has great compression and runs perfect!! I can't wait till my worlds edition comes in. I hear a lot of guys are cracking the case and the front bearing on the VZB II is bad. Anyone ever have that issue? Just rather get a heads up and just place it before i even run it.
