Kinda makes you wonder why they bother putting oil in them! Even with the total number of revolutions involved in fire-up, idle thru the water box, burn out, back up to stage area, final adjustments, mini-burn, idle to the line and then a full pass, there still ain't a lotta revolutions on the bearings when it gets towed back to the pits for a 100% rebuild before the next class call.....
