Ohio Crank: Harry Thor Letter and Video – 6/17/2019

Hi Stan,

We were in sand drag today and set the best time ever at Iceland yes 3.06 seconds.

That combo is wonderful. We know nothing about boost and just have timing on safe side 22-degrees advance. After weekend we get a complete Racepak to read all this info we need.

Thanks Stan,
Harry Thor and Valur

Note: Harry’s rear engine dragster (near lane) is powered by an Ohio Crankshaft 540-cubic inch short block/Procharger combination in his sand dragster. He also has an Ohio Crank 598 normally aspirated engine in his dragstrip altered.

Ohio Crankshaft announces their new line of durable nitrided 4340 Crankshafts that are designed with a damper/balancer snout of big block Chevrolet dimensions. ” Many companies have specially designed dampers specifically designed to combine the big block snout to the dampening specs of a small block engine,” comments Scott Ray from Ohio Crank. “Our new crank design offers tremendous strength for engines that utilize a supercharger drive or additional drives on the front of the small block Chevy.”

Other features for this new line include an aircraft quality nitrided 4340 forging, profiled aerowing counterweights, straight shot oiling passages and an extra 1/4 keyway. The target bobweight is 1,900 grams. There are currently four models offered with 350- and 400-inch main dimensions and stroke choices of 3.480-, 3.750-, 3.875-, and 4.000-inches.

Ohio Cranks Power the Furrs to A Successful 2018 Season

As an additional note: An “Attaboy” from Ohio Crankshaft as Rick was presented by NHRA Southeast Division 2 the award for “WRENCH OF THE YEAR” Best Crew Chief at the NHRA Division 2 awards banquet.

Thankful for what 2018 brought them, Michelle and Rick recall their first win for 2018 in the new Ohio Crankshaft powered Corvette Super Gas roadster at the “Baby Gators” NHRA points race the weekend before the 2018 NHRA Gatornationals. They followed with a runner-up finish the following weekend at the Gatornationals as well.

In April, they made the trip to Galot, NC and scored another Wally, winning in the Ohio Crank powered Dragster in Super Comp eliminations, making it to three finals in a row!

This summer season was filled with an assortment of semi final and quarter final finishes but ended the year with another final round appearance at Rockingham, NC in Super Comp.

The Super Gas Division 2 points championship came down to the final round at the Rockingham event. The team is very proud of our 2nd place Super Gas and 3rd place Super Comp Division 2 points finishes.

The Furrs have won and finished in the top 3 Division points in three classes, several times now. We also wrapped up a strong NHRA National points showing all year finishing tied for 10th place in Super Gas
