Stroker

Stroked engines not only have a larger displacement than a stock engine, but there is also a greater amount of torque produced per additional CC when compared to only a bigger bore. This is because a stroker crank produces more leverage than a stock crank. Think of it like this, it is much easier to remove a stubborn rusty bolt with big wrench than with a small wrench, right? A bigger wrench will take that bolt off easier because your hand travels in a larger diameter circle, resulting in more torque being applied directly to that stubborn bolt. It’s all about leverage and the same principle applies to the crank shaft of your buggy. A longer stroke means that the piston (your hand) has an easier time turning the crankshaft (the wrench) and ultimately the rear tires (the bolt).
