    I haven't seen myself any Riva rods let goes, but I've let go a lot of motors. HAHAHA

    Speak to Nathan at GCWR, as he is using a different brand as whats stated above (Cant remember what they are called, I can find out for you if you want.) but they are a lot stronger then whats on the market. Hope this helps.

    Pretty sure the Riva rods are Carillo's. Its hard to beat the price of the K1's though!

    Corello'a are good to 10k. Won't let go unless something else went wrong like lack of oil thru a broken oil pump gasket.

    K1 are "the same as" corello but when your running full snot at wot, there's just that lingering doubt rattling in the back of your head cavity saying "I wonder how those four cheap rods i bought are handling life under my bum!!!".


    And you have enough to worry about already at those speeds.
