Idk about more power, maybe less wear on certain parts. Those needle bearing bells eat cranks pretty bad. We pulled one out of Alex’s race engine and after wearing through the shims the cartridge for the bearing had begun to machine it’s way through the crank. It was very close to tanking the entire bottom end. The trick with puchs is to not stall the clutch to 30mph often. A case with an outer bearing and a manual clutch would be so rad, but we are complaining about bearings wearing out now lol. Imagine actually side loading the bearings on every launch, not just with starting the engine.
