Exclamation MCP Pistons what do you think of them

I'm interested in peoples opinions of MCP pistons are they better that machine billet pistons?

The new JP engines don't use them, but Max and Novarossi do.

My experience....

I have had 2 NR NSR12S5, bought together new in box, and both of them chew through 3 sets of pistons in under 30 tanks of fuel each.... All these pistons break clean on the skirt just beneath the crank pin.....The bugger is that everytime I have to spent over 100 for a new set of piston,sleeve,conrod and pin...

Before and after these two NSRs I have had numerous engines and all of them runs good. As a result of my experience I now buy engine specifically ask for Non-MCP....

However, I do know a lot of people having success with their MCP equipped engines...
