Anyone have any experience with these? Af2, didn't you buy a set?

Here is the link:

I bought a set of Mahle pistons from those guys, and they were delivered in 2 days (drop shipped direclty from Mahle). I am thinking of buying a set of those rods to try unless someone has had trouble with them. They appear to be a Chinese Carillo knock-off. They advertise them as good to 800+hp.

They are probably similiar to the Pro-tech's I'm running but even cheaper. All I can say is I'm happy with them. They were a good looking rod as far as machining and overall appearance and were weight matched within 1 - 2 grams as delivered which was close enough for me. The ones you have found sound like a deal. Clay

Hi Art. The rods are made at Hawk racing which is another good start up company. They are made in California and not overseas. They were within 1/2 gram which made balancing a breeze. The machine work on the rods are as good as Eagle but at a fraction of the price.

Just remember the Mahle pistons are .010 higher on the pin than everyone else. You're set up might come .010 down the hole. Not a bad thing at all. It is better than .010 over the deck. I am saying this because I have been there with other pistons and my deck height that would not work. I used a block that was already decked and had no control over the heght. Adam
