I would put drifters on the RRSC mikado or you could pull crud into the cylinders and valves when drifting. People will say oh you can leave the throttle slightly cracked, but that won't always happen and when you forget or someone else is running it, you'll pull grit into the cyls/valves.

Perhaps they know something that the remainder of the world has not discovered?
