    See how the gear ate the aluminium.
    Does anyone know what cheap oil and oil filter will help me flush the engine?

    I've had a couple people tell me they've seen issues with those...mostly that the rear bearing looked like it wasn't getting enough oil & got it hot enough to turn the bearing blue. Ask Rene about it.

    R&D is currently restocking their supplies of things so I bet you won't have to wait long for one!

    Can't understand how the rear bearing does not get enough oil as it has a direct line installed just to oil the bearing and shaft. Oldman
