what was the strongest bottem end that any one has seen built. i built a 383 with steel crank and good rods and the first night out there is a rod stuck out the side. not a verry good way to start racing ya know. that gets pretty high doller real quick. i just need to build a moter that will last while i learn to drive this mod..

I always use 4340 steel rods, light weight forged pistons, and a good crank. Which crank I use depends on how much compression the engine will have. I use a cast crank for 11 and under and a steel crank for over 11. Also have every thing balanced.
