INTRODUCING…VADER RODS v3.1

ART IN EXCELLENCE

Our VADER Aluminum Racing Rods exceed the high demands of our customers through passion, incredible attention to detail, and the constant pursuit of perfection.

VADER Aluminum Racing Rods are CAD-designed and CNC manufactured from an exotic alloy that is highly resistant to fatigue crack propagation with “off the charts” fracture toughness…all greater than 7075.

This is art. This is FFWD.

  • Recommended bearings (ACL 4B2322H or King CR4017XP)
  • ARP2000 bolts

NOTE:

When purchasing bearings for this platform, we HIGHLY recommend for you to buy two sets so you can ditch the Upper shells and install all the Lower shells instead. This will get rid of the “swiss cheese” Upper shell which features two oil holes (as this was only to cover both late and early model engines). Oil holes are not necessary for any aluminum rod.

Less holes = more surface area.

 

You then will drill/machine the Lower shells to accept the spin pin of the rod.
