Eagle joins the 2013 AMSOIL Engine Masters Challenge as a contingency sponsor in the crankshaft category.
We first saw Eagle’s ESP Armor-treated crankshafts at the Performance Industry trade show in 2008, and since then, they have taken the performance world by storm. At first glance, ESP Armor has the shiny appearance of an industrial nickel plating, but it’s not. In fact, Eagle isn’t saying exactly what it is, but we know from years of dyno testing that it works. Eagle’s ESP Armor is very slippery, and that equals horsepower. In testing, an Eagle crankshaft treated with ESP armor was worth as much as an extra 30 hp on a 700hp engine, and in the AMSOIL Engine Masters Challenge where even one horsepower can be the margin between winning and losing, an Eagle crank with ESP Armor can provide a huge advantage. It’s no wonder so many AMSOIL Engine Masters Challenge competitors choose to run Eagle cranks!
The 30hp figure was from an engine test run by Eagle by an independent lab, and was performed on an engine that had its untreated crankshaft dyno tested, then ESP Armor treated, then dyno’d again. According to Eagle: “ESP Armor is an optional finishing process offered on all new crankshafts, connecting rods, and assemblies purchased from Eagle. ESP Armor is unlike any process offered by any other crank or rod manufacturer. The surface finish is near perfect with ESP Armor. The improved surface allows oil to glide effortlessly along the part greatly reducing running friction and improving oil shedding. Oil temperatures will be lower. Bearing wear is reduced. Durability is increased. And most importantly, less friction means more power.” For more information on ESP Armor, log onto www.EagleRod.com, or call 662-796-7373.
