King STD Size Performance Rod Bearing Set 2009-2015 Nissan GT-R VR38DETT (CR6870XP)
STD Size Performance Rod Bearing Set
Racing is the ultimate laboratory for testing our bearings. The loads engine bearings experience in pushing a ground - shaking race car down a quarter mile in four seconds, or launching 10,000 lbs. of truck 15 feet in the air, are enormous.
At KING Engine Bearings, we learn from these racing experiences, and we apply what we learn to help us make better bearings -- for race engines and for your everyday station wagon, too. Racers like Eddie Hill and Jay Payne have benefited from KING innovations like:
"Alecular" Bearing Material -- KING developed this alternative to the traditional tri-metal bearings construction. KING bearings have a single deep (.012" - .015") layer of Alecular material, an exclusive alloy of aluminum, tin, copper and other metals, on the steel backing. This gives us superior embedability.
"Bull's Eye" Bearing Wall Tolerance -- With advanced quality control procedures, KING is able to maintain rod and main bearing wall thickness tolerances at an amazingly tight plus or minus .0001" -- far tighter than other manufacturers.
"MaxFlange" A manufacturing principle that lets racers and street engine rebuilders save engines with borderline crankshaft endplay situations without additional machining. Precisely-controlled bearing flange length is the secret. King originated this manufacturing technology.
Do you want lowered friction and more galling protection from your bearings? Then our advanced dry film lubricant ceramic coating is what you need. This coating will not need any changes to clearances as it bonds at 20 millionths of an inch or can be buffed to a "0" tolerance while still retaining it's properties. This coating will greatly reduce power robbing friction and actively retain oil films even after sitting for months or being oil starved in high-g racing to minimize the chances of a galled bearing. A must have for anyone looking for safety and longevity in their bottom end.
