Looked into them, basically the k1 rods. Tom Molnar used to be a part of k1. Thanks for adding them to the store, just shaved 400 bucks off my possible rebuild. Good for rec riders who aren't playing with massive boost and want to keep costs down.

Yes you are exactly right Doug, except for the fact these are a full race rod, not just a rec ski rod. The K1 and these are virtually the same rod, just a different name. Tom engineered both the K1 and these. Tom started his own business after 30 years of working for all the other big name hi performance connecting rod companies.
I use these in my 94.5 mph superstock engine with 26 pounds of boost on E85 at 9500 rpm. Jims performance and JD1 also, along with several others. JD1's 10,000 + rpm turbocharged unlimited class hydrodrag winning engine has these in it.
Top quality full race connecting rods at an affordable price.
