High Quality. High Value.
Introduced in 2009, this solid body, tie-bar design steel lifter is a perfect fit for sportsman and professional racers in every type of racing venue. Whether you are into drag, road, circle, or marine racing, this lifter was designed to be a cost effective alternative to our well proven Tie-Bar Series Lifters which have won numerous NHRA, NASCAR, SCCA and LeMans championships. To create these Solid Body Tie-Bar Lifters we use the same rollers, needles and axles found in our high end lifters, combined with a FEA designed ultra smooth REM/ISF® polished DLC coated, heat treated body, all held to tolerances far exceeding current industry standards. Lifter sets are now available in .842”, .875”, .905” and .937” diameters for all popular OEM and aftermarket racing engines.

Our Roller Lifter Story
Roller lifters had been around for years, being used in various applications such as radial aircraft engines, but when a few progressive engine builders started adapting them to race engines, horsepower and rpm made a huge leap forward. Cam grinders began designing cam profiles with shorter durations and higher rates of lift than a traditional solid lifter could tolerate. The result was incredible power gains especially with the typical modified O.E. style cylinder heads of the day. As valvetrain loads escalated with more lift, rocker ratio and spring pressure, the roller lifter was overtaxed and suffered frequent failures.
