Crossflow pistons: Cast vs Forged?

Do any Locost racers (with crossflow engines) use forged pistons?

If using Cast pistons, are these OK or do they crack etc. in time? How long before problems occur?

What sort of rev limit (and power) do you have?

Never had a cast piston crack on me yet. 1000s of Formula Ford use a standard cast piston without trouble as do the 1300 Locost competition engines.....
