Those Molnar rods are too beautiful to stick in a motor where they can't be seen. :) A work of art!
The Molnars are really nice and what we have been using for most of engine builds for a long time now, but you should see the Carillo's, they are very pretty :)

I think we need an unbiased opinion from an independent source. Please send me four of the Molnars, four of the Carillos and I will pick and send you back the lesser of the two.

This is really the only fair way for me, as a self-anointed R&D specialist for slingshotforums.com to make a recommendation to my fellow site-mates.

I will put up my beloved and track ready Chevette as collateral just so everything is on the up and up. Pink slip is in the mail.

Thanks!

Edit: Please do NOT put your feet on the floor. This vehicle has a special weight saving racing technique where the floorboards have been "lightened". Unless you want to do a Fred Flinstone, the only thing between your feet and the concrete roaring by underfoot at 30 MPH is dry rotted carpet (again - a weight saving measure). I have a disclaimer decal I will put on the dash that warns it is a purpose built race vehicle just in case you have any racer boyz out in the shop that want to see what she'll do.

@[email protected] would like to see just how pretty post a picture if you have one lying around. wish using the carillos would be worth it they are probably rated for power that i would never get to use with sling, and if it was power i would get to use i would probably go that route but just don't see the point. have you guys used them for any sling builds ?

Next time we have a set on an engine build, I will get some pictures of the Carillos and post them up. The Molnars have been working great in our engine builds though and is still by far the most common rod we use in the engines we have built, but the Carillos do just have a couple little nice touches when compared to the Molnars. Both of the rods are going to be plenty strong for most engine builds being installed in the Slingshot though and hopefully after installed you will never see them again ;)

Hey Blitz, they were always accusing me of having acid dipped parts on my drag car, I told them it was not acid dipped just rust relieved. Car was only 1960lbs wet ready to race.
