Aluminum Connecting Rods | R&R Racing Products

As mentioned before, an aluminum connecting rod acts like a shock absorber. There are only so many cycles even a shock absorber can withstand before it can’t rebound further. Even though many customers say our rods last longer than other Aluminum Connecting Rods they have used in the past, this totally depends on the application and how the engine is treated. The best we can do is report back what our customers tell us. In street use, people report over 15,000 miles of mixed street/strip use on applications with high boost. The key is to replace the rod before it fatigues, so it’s best to speak to your engine builder or search the internet forums for what other people are reporting.

R&R Pro custom Aluminum Connecting Rods have been engineered to be the best in the industry and are available for these and many other applications:

Our high strength aluminum tie rods are spun from solid rods of 7/8” 7075-T6 aluminum alloy for maximum strength and durability. One of the strongest aluminum alloys, 7075-T6 has exceptional yield and tensile strengths coupled with excellent corrosion resistance.

Will it work for your job? YES! This high-strength brazing rod allows you to repair or fabricate aluminum stronger than a TIG welding machine, without the machine. No welding aluminum needed! All you need to repair any metal stronger than new is a heat source (propane or mapp gas), a turbo tip, or oxy-acetylene, and our material. You can easily repair corroded or oil-impregnated areas that can be next to impossible to fix using welding machines with aluminum welding rods or other brazing products.
