You need to take the whole rotating assembly to your machinist to get it balanced. If you know that all your rods and pistons are weight matched then i would say just to take him 1 rod and piston. Be sure to take your rings and bearings to him too.

It is always best to do rods,pistons,crank,flywheel,damper together when balancing.If the weight is known for rods and pistons with rings and brgs,it is possible to do just the crank.Better safe than sorry though!Good luck this year by the way,hope you stomp em!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also on the crank... If it is a stock 3.48 stroke i would say being 20/20 it should be safe in the 6500 zone. I have had stock 3.48 cranks hold up turning 7200. Really depends on your piston weight and how well balanced the motor is.
