Oval Racing Parts

  • Solid axles in reduced diameter for IMCA Style B-Mods & Sport-Mods (.940” & .960”) We’ve specifically identified the axle torque output within the various classes of mid-west dirt modifieds and have created axle diameter choices (in both solid and gun-drilled axles) by calculating the axle torque and considering the tire compound and track conditions in order to best enhance the KERA “Wrap Axle” Technology by optimizing the most traction and throttle steer. Axles are now available in diameters that range from .940” to 1.130” (thicker diameters available for bigger HP cars).

  • Drive Flange Drive Flange
    Strange Oval Drive Plate Features & Benefits:   Drive Plate ADW520 (for cambered rear applications)
      • 2 degrees of maximum misalignment
      • Hardened components to reduce wear and increase useful life
      • Polished articulating insert gear to improve efficiency and decrease running temperatures
    • Drive flanges are plated to prevent rust
    • This Strange Oval drive plate ADW520 consists of an all-steel housing and a tempered steel splined insert that articulates within the steel housing and allows for up to 2 degrees of rear camber adjustment. This drive plate is specifically for the 5-Lug, WIDE-5 hub applications. Used in conjunction with Strange Oval axles, our spline tolerances (between the axle splines and drive plate splines) are tighter and more uniform. These “closely mated” tolerances will provide better spline life of both the axles and drive plates. Strange Oval drive plates will work with virtually every 24-spline outboard axle end on the market.

  • dsc_2553 dsc_2561
    Used in conjunction with Strange Oval axles, our spline tolerances, between the axle splines and drive plate splines, is usually tighter and more uniform. These “closely mated” tolerances will provide better spline life of both the axles and drive plates. Strange Oval offers several steel drive plates that will accommodate a camber range of zero to 4 degrees. Depending on where your current rules regarding allowable camber lies (if any)
      • Nickel Chromium Molybdenum steel is used for excellent hardenability, strength and toughness – This provides less spline wear and general drive plate longevity
      • FEA (Finite Element Analysis) analyzed lightweight scalloped and pocketed design
      • Marquenching heat-treat processing reduces internal stresses and stress cracks
      • Electro-polished surface enhances surface finish which is especially beneficial on the spline flanks for reducing friction, wear and operating temperature
    • Broached splines promote consistent fit and misalignment angleDrive Plate #ADC100 can be run with standard crowned spline axles that can accommodate 0 to 2 degrees of camber (with this drive plate, crowned axles are what sets any camber angle)

  • Torsion Bars Torsion Bars
    Strange Oval torsion bars have been winning races since 2008. We’re one of racings best kept secrets.
      • Available in solid bar equivalent rates of 900, 925, 950 & 975 in 29" length
      • Aircraft chrome vanadium steel offers superior yield strength, fatigue properties, and impact toughness
      • Longest effective bar length in the industry, decreasing strain for improved longevity
      • Vertical rack heat-treating controls distortion
      • CNC hobbed serration splines insures precise and consistent fit
      • Generous transition fillet radii essential to reduction of stress risers
      • Lightweight gun-drilled design
      • Additional attention directed to non-aggressive machining to impart a minimum amount of residual tensile stress
      • Shot peening provides increased torsional and bending fatigue life with the application of residual compressive stress
      • Laser etched part number on torsion bar od gives the relationship to a common solid bar of the equivalent rate
      • Common solid bar number of equivalent rate also engraved onto the end of strange torsion bar for easy identification
    Torsion Bars should be installed so that they always twist in the same direction. The bars retain a memory of the direction they are twisting, if they are twisted in the opposite direction the spring rate will be compromised and the bar could fracture. For this reason its always a good idea to mark the torsion bars to ensure they are used in the correct corner of the car.
