    Anyone running a non fluid dampener on their race car, if so can you recommend one for my 470 should spin 7000 rpm for a short time.

    Romac is very high quality. Not run one yet, but I plan to get one for my current slant 6 build.

      ATI has been on all my engines with no issues so that would be another option for you

                        The nice thing about the Innovat West one is you can order them with dual keyway. Only thing that sucks is the crank has to be machined for it.

                              I've seen nothing but good things about that Rattler thing. I wish they made one for a slant 6.

                                  Whatever you choose, don’t skimp based on price. Don’t ask me how I know...

                                  For me, it will always be ATI or nothing.

                                      Just wondering. Why not a Fluid Damper.

                                        I think a lot of guys have read about bad things happening with fluid dampers. So many Cheapo fluid dampers out there today. I ran the original name brand “Fluid Damper” in the 8’s@155mph for years with zero issues. I still have one sitting here that I would use but most of my engines have ATI dampers on now.

                                          ATI super damper on my engine (and its rebuildable if you ever feel the need).

                                            The innovators west dampers can also be bought with magnets for a crank trigger built in. If I ever have mine rebuilt I’ll have the front changed so I can run a crank trigger.

                                            Both aftermarket dampers I’ve bought came with undersized hubs and had to be honed to fit. It’s no big deal, just something to be aware of.
