Yeah, I heard those reports too about the Chinese flywheels flinging the magnets off. Chinese junk!!

That's never happened with a Briggs Raptor (cast iron) stock flywheel because the magnets are retained so well... It's just interesting to read the karting forums and about the revs those old flat heads reached (I guess in the unlimited class) during a typical race. Stock cast iron flywheels, mind you, and this was before the panic and fear era of the Nanny State.

But yeah, should be trustworthy. I'll take German any day.

P.S. Tell Sid he needs to weigh in on the matter and take a factory tour or something...
