Another thing I have noticed that some aftermarket flywheels are pumping dirt into the front bearing. The back of these flywheels have round parts on the back that pump debris into the front bearing. The rubber shield bearings are OK here, but the metal shielded bearings don't stand a chance. The back of the flywheel should be flat.

The metal shield front bearing is slightly more free than the rubber shield. It makes a slight performance difference, but you have to be more careful with the metal shield. They don't seal as well.
Is this a problem with novarossi engines alone? What about the max power engines?

Only the first batch of 353 09' engines have bearing problems, the latest batch which is released in the USA on September 09 and onwards does not have bearing issues and up until now there are no report of bearing problems either.

I noticed these engines act differently when cold for starters compared to the 08 353 i have, the issue im having is that in yesterdays A final it would stall straight after a pit stop. it sounded like it went rich and just died. temps were around the 125 degrees celsius mark.

apart from the stalling it was fine. im thinking it could be a rich bottom end? or maybe a longer pressure is required? could it also be that im using a pressure chamber on the fuel line for more fuel volume?
