Thanks for the help guys. I was planing on going single plane and keeping it under the 6500 rpm mark. If there is doubt that the rods would handle something like that then while I'm there i might as well do it right.

Maybe go with something like the Scat engine kit that has the full rotating assembly. Like this one, But this one has Hypereutectic pistons.
