Custom Ross Racing Forged Pistons (Rings, Pins and Locks). These Pistons are custom made for Spool and rated at 1800 hp plus by Ross Racing Pistons. Bore Size: 0.010 / +0.25mm. Total Seal AP Steel Top Ring, Ductile Napier 2nd Ring, High Tension Oil Rings. 0.220 wall H13 Steel Pins.Compression Ratio: 9.0:1. All of Ross Racing Pistons (since 1985) have been forged from 2618 billet bar stock and have been heat treated and aged to a T61 condition (2618-T61). 2618-T61 is the material that is used when fatigue resistance and durability are of prime importance by all premium racing piston manufacturers. This material has less than 1% silicon particulate content. High silicon content pistons (forged from 4032 or MS75) will not stand up to the most extreme stress placed on many racing pistons.
If a crack starts to form in a high silicon piston it will continue until the piston experiences a catastrophic failure. Simply stated, adding sand to the aluminum only makes it more brittle.
In the rare instance of a 2618-T61 piston cracking, the crack will continue to an area where the stress is not as great and will then stop. Another advantage of 2618-T61 over the high silicon pistons is the ability to keep its shape under extreme pressure and high RPM's. "Skirt Shrinking" is not a problem with ROSS Racing Pistons. Spool Drag Pro I Beam connecting rods are the ultimate high strength direct fit conrod for all Ford XR6 engines.
