Forged alloy pistons of the highest quality are used to enable high power to be achieved.   The billet con-rods are specially made to R.I.P.S specifications to save weight and give extra strength where needed.
     
 
     
Race bearings are used and every pair are chosen to fit each individual journal within R.I.P.S proven tolerances.   Each item is carefully checked for quality of manufacture, weighed and balanced to extremely accurate tolerances.
     
 
     
Every single piston ring is measured and hand prepared.   The result of such care is a perfect fit every time.
