Cool Lashway Motorsports introduces their own line of 3-piece pushrods for LS applications

http://www.lashwaymotorsports.com/st...hrods-lsx.html

Lashway Motorsports is proud to introduce it's very own line of high end, 3-piece push rods for any LS application.

We've offered these rods to our local customers for a while now and decided to market them to other folks around the country looking for a pushrod that will handle anything you throw at it.

The 3-pc pushrod design is not new by any stretch. In fact, 3-pc rods have been utilized by engine builders for many years. Most NHRA and Sprint Cup teams use 3-pc rods in several different applications. Unlike the common 1-pc chromoly rods most offer, the 3-pc design offers a multitude of benefits that we can all appreciate.

Some of the advantages and specifications of Lashway 3-pc rods are:

•Highest quality 4135 seamless Chromoly tubing for extreme applications - Higher quality chromoly means less rod deflection at higher RPMs. Many aftermarket camshafts have very aggressive ramp rates. These rates put the engines valvetrain through high levels of stress. A high strength rod with tool steel ends can help to stabilize and protect the integrity of the valvetrain and its events.

•Salt bath nitride surface treatment for outstanding wear properties and strength 180,000 psi tensile strength
If you remove a standard aftermarket chromoly rod from an engine there is often times a bit of corrosion and rust on the exterior of the rod. Chromoly steel is known to rust, if you have a chromoly steel cage in your race car then you know what I mean. This corrosion can end up in motor oil and on moving parts. Obviously not a good thing. Our rods are treated in a salt-nitride bath. The nitrogen adhears to the exterior of the rod eliminating the corrossion issues we have seen with other common 1-pc rods.

•240-degree ball for excellent rocker arm cup clearance
The ball end of the rod features more of a radius than that of a standard 1-pc formed rod. This means less interference with the rocker arm on higher lift cams.

•Tips are made from high impact, wear resistant 8620 barstock that is case hardened and cryogenically treated and tempered
This is simple to understand. The ends of the pushrod make contact with the rocker, and the lifter cup. It is essential that the material the ends are made of are their absolute strongest. I have personally removed 1-pc formed rods from engines that are rough to the touch at the end of the rod. Small fishers and deformations in the formed end of the rod can lead to premeature wear on valvetrain parts. Our rods do not have this issue. The 8620 barstock is some of the strongest steel available on the market!

•180,000psi tensile strength
Like ARP fasteners, added tensile strength in a pushrod is always a nice benefit to have. Less deflection and higher stability at high RPMs.

•.083 wall thickness
The walls of our pushrods are thicker than the average 1-pc rod available today for added strength. Smaller oiling holes keep oil at the lifter and cam lobes where it is needed and not at the rocker where less oil is required at any RPM range.

Advantages over the one piece pushrod design:

The 3-piece design allows the pushrod ends to be CNC machined as opposed to pressed or formed, this allows the pushrod’s main body to be thicker and of a stronger alloy



We're offering these rods at $199.99 a set. They are well worth the money, and have been tested and proven in every single of of our vehicles that leave our facility including our drag cars.

Someone just asked if our rods weighed more than the thinner wall rods commonly available. I went in the back and weighed our rod as well as a brand new Texas-Speed 1-pc. Both weighed in at 45.35 Grams.

No increase in valvetrain weight, only stength!

If you're thinking about upgrading to an aftermarket camshaft, these would be an excellent choice to go along with the swap! Call or PM for packages deals.
