The motor is very strong, if you liked the v spec you will love the JX, very responsive hit in the low end and top is just as good as the speed v spec, longevity is awesome with the coated crank, the motors should last several gallons, the rod as well, you could change the rod out after a gallon or so but have been running these for a while and have seen no reason to. Good luck and enjoy them, they are quick.

This is my favorite of all the ones i have ran.It has great power ,fuel mileage and they last if you treat them good. I always change my bearings w/ TKO's after (2) gallons and the rod if it needs it.

how many gallons can you expect to get out of the coated crank:?

The rod can be in for 3 gallons from new then should be looked at and checked for slop, when the engines r new the pinch is hard on them threw breakin so that's why it needs to be changed so soon. For me I'll use a new rod to break in 2 engines a gallon and a half each then switch back to s new one for another 5-6 gallons and check for slop. Also you can change bearings at 3 gallons also if u want.
