These Bucket lifters are designed using the latest CATIA CAD software and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) for the high demanding conditions of endurance racing, road racing or drag racing.
They cannot be compared in any sense with the cheaper, extruded or factory supplied lifters due to the superior materials, coatings and superb manufacturing that is only found at a Formula 1 level.
Some features of our Supertech lifters are:
- Aerospace certified Chrome-Molybdenum-Vanadium alloy from Austria. This is a much stronger material than the alloys used in factory extruded lifters.
- Completely CNC machined from heat treated billet provides only the necessary and calculated thickness of the walls with very special shapes, providing better rigidity with an important reduction in weight.
- The lifters are fully Nitrided and polished to harden the surface to about 60Rc for low wear. Higher cam lifts and rpms will submit conventional lifters to an important wear.
- Surface is carefully finished by grinding it to a much lower surface roughness for lower friction with the cams, cylinder head bore, providing longer durability.
That is why Supertech lifters are REAL RACING lifters, and the answer for your racing engines.
