Summit Racing Forged Crankshafts and Connecting Rods

Feelin’ Cranky

Step up to the strength and reliability of a forged rotating assembly—without the heavy price tag—with Summit Racing Forged Crankshafts and Performance Connecting Rods. They’ll give you peace of mind when you’re making 700-plus horsepower.

Summit Racing Forged Crankshafts

Non-twist forged from certified 4340 steel, these crankshafts are heat-treated and nitride-hardened, then stress-relieved and shot-peened for strength. Each journal is micro-polished and has a .125-inch radius to further increase strength. The rod journals have heavy fillets, so narrow rod bearings are required.

Summit Racing Performance Connecting Rods

Forged from 4340 steel, these connecting rods are designed, machined, and finish-assembled in the USA. The small and big ends are sized to exacting tolerances and all rod sets are weight-matched to make rotating assembly balancing easier. Most rods are also designed for full-floating wristpins.
