OK, well you all know I am shopping around for stroker kits. Well I decided to look into the TMD ebay shop. Problem was the kit I liked had a HAWKSRACING crank and I have heard a couple of bad things about them. So I figured since the same vendor also sells eagle cranks that maybe he would substitute the HAWKSRACING crank for a regular eagle crank (go from a forged cheapo, to a name brand nodular crank)
I dont need a forged crank, and would rather have a nodular crank thats in good shape than spend another $400 on a Hawksracing crank that comes out of spec.
So I sent an email. Wanted you all to see it. Judge for yourselves. Just wondering if SCAT would be interested to know that folks are selling cheapo cranks and rods "same as scat".
He didnt offer to substitute and didnt want to take the time to thank me for my interest. So I will take my business elsewhere even if it costs me a little more. can you imagine trying to get your money back from this guy if something went wrong? Im not even going to dignify him with a response, Ive seen politicians answer questions better than this guy.
Its quite possible that Hawksracing get their forged blanks from the same place as Scat, eagle, and CAT. But its the machining work that counts. If I need to spend a bunch of money getting stuff cleaned up to make it fit then its not really a good deal.
We have HAWKSRACING cranks and rods same as scat.

Subject: 331 stroker kit
Im interested in a 331 stroker kit.
I noticed the item 7927711720
I like the Mahle Pistons and would also like the
H-beam rods. But I would prefer an eagle crank. I
would like to buy a kit, but dont want it balanced.
Do you think you can do something with an eagle or
SCAT crank? and could you tell me who makes your H
Thanks in Advance
