You see, you need to have the RING to be able to drive around. Else, you'll definite get eaten alive.

The problem with 3Racing parts is that for those non moving aluminum parts, you need to assemble them with care. They have very little margin of error for assembly.

Is that only the main bearing or both front and main bearings ceramic? Is the crankshaft coated?

Hey, did you polished the balls and the bearing race as well? I know if it was crashed_1, he would.

That's a mistake a lot of people make. You actually need to check and make sure that NOTHING foreign is in the engine and everything looks normal. You never know. Better be safe than sorry. Else, another JP down the drain.

Where did you hear this?

I will never last long for a non race bred engine is you do not run it correctly. That's for sure.
