Z1 Turbo / F1100T Forged Connecting Rods
These connecting rods were created for the racer that is looking for the highest level of strength under high boost situations such as drag racing. The big weak spot of the Arctic Cat four stroke turbo motor are the connecting rods, shortly followed by the pistons. If you have a rod failure due to high RPM, excessive detonation, or "lean-out"; take it from us when we say it is a costly and timely repair. To ensure this doesn't happen, these rods are forged from high quality material, and use ARP 2000 3/8" rod bolts. They will work with our forged piston sets or with the stock pistons.
We had one of the best racing rod designers around make this happen and they were designed to be the strongest rod available for this application without adding any unnecessary weight to the build. The competition uses a "straight" beam design, there is no strength in the rod except under the wristpin, the extra wide wings in this rod design must be made thinner to get the weight under control. By using a narrower beam with thicker wings we have been able to make the rod stronger while at the same time cutting weight. We will put this rod up against ANYONE'S for performance!
