If you keep the engine completely stock then they seem to last pretty good but once you add a little extra (race cams) then they donít hold up so well. My teammates just had to have their BSB spec engines completely rebuilt, one lasted just over 4000km and the other bent a valve just under 4000km.

Wow, so shimming the valves isn't enough, actually need to replace the valves completely?
