Your not going to get a new set of carrillo rods for $500....... You'll get a set of Chinese knockoff for that price.....

http://www.flatlanderracing.com/ this is the link to them, you have to click on con rods, and then go to the carrillo ones, then scroll all the way down to the 6.800 bbf rods..
Those aren't the American forgings..... Those are Chinese forgings machined by them here, same stuff as SCAT or Eagle, except the eagle stuff is machined overseas.....

I was also just reminded that the real carrillo rods are not forging they are billet.

wow, that crazy, i never knew that, the biggest thing that drew me to them is that they weigh almost 100 grams less that the scat or eagles...

and where is the weight savings????? i hope not in the wrist pin area.....
i'm not real sure... i am on a quest to save weight in my rotating assembly LOL, I would think because they say carrillo on them would make them a little better than the competition.. or at least i hope..
