Ive been told by several people not to even think about running Eagle stuff. Does anybody have a response to that. Is Eagle bad news or they good.

i agree with ohio dirt...
my engine i currently have is a stock rod, cast crank with hyperutectics... it'll see 6800 weekly... now realistically if i turned it 7500 weekly it'll sooner or later, let go, right??? same holds true for any racing product... the eagle i beam rods will hold good at around 7300 weekly and not give you problems... dont expect them to turn 8000 weekly... if you want to turn that many rpms jump up to there h-beam model... just dont expect to get a product made to run 7300 to run 8000.. keep it in mind

Thanks everybody you've been a really big help. We had decided to go with Eagle stuff but just wanted to hear some opinions. Thanks again.

i think most engines blow up becuase of mistakes detonation to lean harmonics ect.

Not to bash, but ask the larger engine builders and they will tell you that fluidampr is junk and that maybe why you lost them 2 quality cranks......too much harmonics

Depends on the builders...ATI will always bash Vibratech and vice versa. I figure with Warren Johnson, Kurt Johnson, and various builders swearing by them they must be decent. Oddy (yes, the big builder) did an independent test of the ATI versus Fluidampr and here is the article...http://www.fluidampr.com/testresults.html. Each has it's pluses, but both are good. On an $18,000 engine, the builder isn't going to use a $300 balancer that he doesn't believe in.
