    Two of my friends had them fail. One was using a Riva Stage 3 SC and the other was using the Stock SC. I have them on my race rxp and they have held up so far ::knock on wood:: I have also heard of two more, but I'm not sure who.

    I have heard of 4 or 5 sets failing (two of which are mentioned above)

    I told the manufacturer about the failures and he flipped out saying any failures are not acceptable and he started shipping me bearings with even stronger cages that are titanium fiber reinforced. He promised me nobody would break these so we'll see.

    Jerry did these.
    Now, I had some water get sucked in through the SC one day & I ran the schit out of it immediately after the water was removed.. 6 hrs since then this happened. I posted about the incident last week & was told to run it. Anyway, you think the bearings were the cause of my barely above 8psi of boost from day one with my setup. Boost was measured by 2 different guages & read the same.

    Yes, one other set besides ou812's
