Having great success with the 600kW rated (now 698) Superleggera conrod was rewarding but we weren’t going to rest on our laurels. We believed power levels of the Turbo Ford were going to be pushed beyond the 100kW per cylinder design parameter of our original design, so we had only one alternative – go back to the drawing board and come up with another design that could handle 200 per cylinder. Some people told us we were mad – who needs a conrod that strong? But we believed there would be a need so after 7 months of blood, sweat and tears the FatRod was born.
As the Pom’s like to say “This is a serious bit of kit”. The design brief was to ensure it could cope with the enormous combustion shock loads associated with 1300HP+ flywheel figures, so the tough H-Beam construction was retained, as it has a higher stiffness-to-mass ratio than an I-Beam design. We gave it the biggest beam we could fit inside the piston and coupled it to the largest size bearing tunnel that could physically fit inside the Ford crankcase. The minimum cross section has been increased by a whopping 34%, the beam is 13% wider, 14% thicker and the small end of the rod can accommodate a .927” Chev diameter gudgeon pin, if required. Serious conrods for serious power.
