By Vic Moore:
I often wonder how Joe Rode, the able manager of Eddie’s Motorsports, will cap his career. Why? Because he’s constantly observing, endlessly productive.
Tall, lanky even, with a physique that doesn’t vary too much, I remember studying him on foot along a crowded corridor at a PRI show some years ago, his strides were inordinately long, he hugged the wall because it was the quickest path forward through the throngs and he traveled three times faster than anyone else.
Rarely sharp or opinionated, his voice is usually peppered by a compliment or two, but it is his substance that makes him special—a calling that requires him to get things done.
This week he has unveiled Eddie’s most important new product in over a year: eight-rib serpentine pulley kits. Cleverly, this pulley kit is fully independent; it doesn’t rely on various cylinder head mountings. Instead it uses the water pump’s mounting base for consistent trouble-free installation. Here are details of the kits’ merits and its appearance when installed:
S-Drive Plus Eight-Rib Serpentine Pulley Kits from Eddie Motorsports
› 33% greater contact patch than standard six rib kits
› Improved belt traction limits slippage in higher horsepower applications
› Handles increased torque loads of 33% more than six rib

› Improved belt life
