Track use engine reliability question.

For all those with track only RC51s, how has the engine reliability been?

The RC51 has a very strong engine, but track use places more stress on the engine than street use, and I was curious how they are holding up.

Anyone requiring top-end rebuilds yet (piston/rings) or have the engines been pretty much bullet-proof?

My '02 is 99.99% street with 36K miles with no issues, although the previous owned did track days on her.
At 24K miles, I only had one exhaust shim slightly out of tolerance, the rest were spot on.
