Quality Products, Service and True Enthusiasm are Key Principles in Strange Engineering’s Success

Wednesday, 11 July 2018
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -  Strange Engineering, an official partner of the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA), is a household name amongst racers and crew chiefs and offers over five decades of manufacturing, design, engineering innovation, quality and unsurpassed customer service experience to IHRA members.
Strange Engineering participates in the IHRA Summit Sportsman Spectacular contingency program, offering prizes to the highest finishing Box (Top) competitors using Strange Engineering axles on their car.
Bob Stange began his career over 60 years-ago working in machine shops during the day and making suspension parts for his friends and himself in his mom’s two-car garage in Evanston, Ill., in the late 50's. Strange Engineering was officially incorporated in 1964. 
Good friend and Top Fuel Dragster racer Chris “The Golden Greek” Karamesines called Stange to build a new rear-end quickly as the one he had on his dragster broke after a match race. After using the new rear-end that Stange built, Karamesines would never use any other rear-end on his cars. The Golden Greek still has the original rear-end that Stange built in his shop to this day.
President, Jeff Stange continues the family legacy by proudly making rear axles, drag brakes, coil over shocks, coil over struts, Ford 9 inch, and Dana 60 complete rear-end assemblies in their 120,000-square foot building in Morton Grove, Ill. 
The family-owned business is based on three key principles, quality product, quality service and a true enthusiasm for the performance industry.  Those principles are showcased in the quality Pro Race and Alloy Axles.  
The Pro Race Axles feature Hy-Tuf ultra strength material designed for competitive drag racing. It originated in the class of Ultra-Strength alloys, which was developed for highly stressed landing gears in military aircrafts.  Each Pro Race Axle is heat treated in a vertical furnace to a hardness of Rc 45-46.  The combination of Hy-Tuf of thru-hardened heat treatments provides superior torsional strength and ductility. Pro Race Axles are offered in 28 to 40 spline applications.

The Alloy Axles feature modified premium forged alloy steel designed for high performance street and track applications.  Various modifications were tested by Strange Engineers in creating the proper combination for both street and track use.  Induction hardening of the axle happens as the axle is pulled through an electrical coil. The electrical coil heats and quenches the shaft to a hardness of Rc 58-62. Strange Alloy axles are offered in 28 to 35 spline applications.

“Strange engineering has always worked with our customers to deliver the highest quality suspension and driveline products on the market,” Strange Engineering Sales Manager J.C. Cascio said. “With the feedback from the end users, Strange is able to react to the needs and demands of an ever-changing industry. We pride ourselves on the quality and reliability of our parts that keep the racers safe and on the track.”
