Hot Rods Cranks?????

Anyone running one of these in a rhino motor???? I have a buddy putting a motor together and is tryin to save some cash. Its either about 350 to put a falicon rod onto a stock crank or about 300 for a complete crank assembly. For me the awnser is simple I would go with Falicon.....but my buddy is wanting to go the other direction......what do you guys think???????

I just put one in my wifes rhino after she blew it up. It's only got about 10hrs on the rebuild but so far everything is holding up fine. I guess i'll know after this next dune season. If nothing blows up it was worth it?

I am saving for dumont for this fall and also a mountain trail ride with the Vegas crew, maybe Jimmmyzz and others will join in on that one.

Thumbs up

I have seen some complete crank assemblies being sold on ebay fairly cheap but I think a stock crank, welded with a Carillo or Falicon connecting rod is the strongest option. When combined with a good forged piston and a middle drive support you get a very strong bottom end, much stronger than stock.

I think that their flight from and hatred of technology is self-defeating. The Buddha rests quite as comfortably in the circuits of a digital computer or the gears of a cycle transmission as he does at the top of a mountain or in the petals of a flower. To think otherwise is to demean the Buddha--which is to demean oneself.
