What's your take on stripping crank keyways on 20v I-5s?

I've heard it happen on a few occasions, one I've seen firsthand.

I think the current Audi engines are a result of cost-cutting more
than anything else- the older stuff was much more robust and over-
built, but that costs a lot to do.

With GT4 Rabbits pushing 180hp out of a 1.6L dual Weber setup
and revving to close to 9k, it's amazing what a stock Rabbit
bottom end can take.
