    Looks like it was overtightened from the factory. Yeah there are better pinions, but thats obviously overtightened. Robinson racing pinions can strip as well..just takes a LOT more to do it! :)

    I'd say more than likely its lean on the top end, getting hot and the head is expanding losing pinch and compression. Richen a 1/4 turn, if it makes a difference, it was lean.
