Cryogenics

Looking for some experienced opinions on the process and whether or not it is worth the extra cost when applied to performance parts.

I have posted on this topic before, there are many differing opinions and outcomes. The Cryogenic process does IMO increase strength in certain applications, some I would be weary however it does not mean it will not work. Probably the most active Cryo component internally in engines is the valve springs in endurance type situations, as for the gear is it a street gear or a race gear as I would anticipate the result may be different. The science behind the process means that with certain internal engine parts the flex and stretch rules are bent or changed and the testing of many parts is not readily available again IMO. I know of many successful Cryo applications with axles and stub shafts etc. with huge tired trucks.

If it's in a class where your limited to stock stuff I can see some benefit

But if you want to cryo a new $4000 billet crank I think your wasting money.

If you want the most dependability it is. I'm pretty sure every pro team in every racing sport does it.

When my son raced karts In WKA I had a couple of engines that the cranks had been cryo treated. They lasted for ever. They were still in use when he had to stop racing and I sold off the karting stuff.

I've got a 5 gallon bucket of my DNA that has been 'cryo'ed' Give me an address and I'll take a chain saw and cut you of a quart. Laughing
