BRAD ROLSTON is starting off with a positive reputation.
Hunting, long distance driving at at 100 + mph, and never forgetting the young jive *** kid in daddys BMW, who thinks he's the Carl Edwards of the highway, that needs to get his chemical imbalance set straight.

Would really like to hear yours, and other experts opinions of Scat making cutom H-Beam Rods............? All the Carillo, Crower etc., run around $3000. Scat may well get them done for under $1000 per set.

Only thing is, the minimum order is 6 sets, + 2. I am willing to try but I can't order 6 sets.

I know your building the ultimate brag wagon... but for the rods... you could stuff stocker forged rods back in and be straight. I wouldnt bother with all the super fancy custom rods unless your looking to make rediculous horsepower that will just sling mud and bury axles.

For your application... there is such a thing as too much.
Make your target horsepower around 450 and you will be incredibly pleased with the rigs power capabilities.

Think power to weight ratio...
The trucks these motors usually power weigh in at 8k minimum... up to near 12k like motorbug.
Just a couple pennies from a fool...
Keep em... or leave em in the change tray.
