The material is a proprietary material made specifically for Carrillo called CarrilloLoy. It is similar to 300M and 4340. The shot peen is a proprietary blend made for super fine shot peen finish. The bushing material is called ToughMet. It is more slippery, elongates less, and is tougher than any material short of composites. The rods are comparable in weight to the Lightning rod but have 38% more surface area.
Terry at Shaker Products say´s "As far as strength data I can say that we used 4800 psi cylinder pressure as a standard threshold. 4500 psi in a top fuel car's cylinder. I have had a new Nitro bike owner break his crank pin on a backfire and the Shaker Rod still is straight in the beam".

Roffe started sell motorcycle parts in Stockholm 1943 and the biz are still alive by new owner today. I remember when i was 12 years old 1970, buying parts to my mini bike from Mr. Rolf Senior him selves. Even Mrs. Rolf and their son Leif was working there at the time. The hot dogs cost $0.05 USD and a coke even less. Leif was still active last year when i meet him buying some flathead pistons for the JD.
This famely has really meant much to motor cycle riding in Sweden. The new owner runs the biz with excelent service and know ledge about parts and machining. Peter what care for the shop does an eminent job giving every customer 100% attention to solve their needs or problem, even when there is 20 people in line he give all customers the needed time for optimal service.

After 4 flat tires i found out i have to use a tire lock due to heavy grip in ice. Also the new nails was carwing thrue the rubber when they gets pushed into the tube on asphalt. I mounted a thick rubber line inside the tire, this looks to work fine.
