GD&T serves as the cornerstone of Oliver’s commitment to provide championship-winning racers with the highest quality connecting rods. Control drawings that govern key dimensioning and tolerancing, fixtures that locate off key Datum points, and our state-of-the-art climate controlled facility ensure Oliver’s machining and measurements are absolutely repeatable. Oliver implements the same elite processes used by the world's top tier precision machining companies. Our Zeiss CMM and Sunnen SH4000 electro servo honing machine demonstrate our commitment to invest in the latest, most advanced technologies, undoubtedly placing us at forefront of the racing industry.
Oliver is devoted to extracting every last benefit from our U.S. alloy steel for our racers. From the very start of production, our material is processed using a higher standard for cleanliness and purity, meeting AMS 2301. Our proprietary two-stage heat treatment optimizes stress relief and provides superior grain structure and ideal grain size. We continuously strive to give our racers the “unfair” advantage. Oliver rods are better by design.
