I know this topic has been brought up before, but just wanted to get your opinions and thoughts. On another forum pertaining to ATV drag racing, a few engine builders are claiming that stock or shorter length connecting rods will build more HP vs longer length rods due to the piston seeing less dwell time at TDC and BDC. In essence, the piston is working more and resting less. Other engine builders argue that the longer rod / stroke ratio (to an extent) builds more HP from higher combustion pressure, thus resulting in a quicker ET. Now keep in mind that this discussion was pertaining to 250-800 cc ATV engines. Is there any apples to apples comparisons that relate to the bigger V8 engines or are some of these guys full of BS?
