I am a pure basher. I haven't raced in almost 20 years. I think it's great for a basher because we run a whole lot more packs than racers do-- it's not uncommon for me to run 3-4 packs in an afternoon, where a racer might run 2-3 packs in a whole week. So our service intervals tend to get stretched out-- at least I know mine do. So any part that can run longer with less fuss is a win for me.
