Re: 383 stroker
Well, 99% of the time. A lot of places put a huge markup on stuff. For example, a lot of places sell Scat's SR cranks as "race" crankshafts when they're nothing more than stock replacements. And I'm sure the cranks Summit sells can be had elsewhere for a hundred bucks less.
Then there is that place like I linked to that says they sell cast cranks... but yet say they are heat treated. Cast cranks aren't heat treated, they're work-hardened. They can be cut multiple times and not have to be heated again.
I don't know, the whole thing makes me leary. I mean, I'm not even sure I trust buying a name-brand crank off eBay because you don't get any kind of warranty or guarantee that it is balanced or isn't going to grenade after a couple hundred runs at six grand.
I mean, I want an internally balanced forged 3.75" crank but that's $500.
