Fluidampr Joins Bully Dog Race Team

Bully Dog Drag Truck with Fluidampr logoFluidampr is proud to announce its sponsorship of the Bully Dog Diesel Drag Truck.  The 2006 Dodge 5.9L Cummins driven by Jarid Vollmer is a 9 second performance diesel truck that produces over 1,300hp and 1,450lb-ft of torque on nitrous.  Bully Dog, an industry leading manufacturer of diesel performance products, competes in the National Hot Rod Diesel Association (NHRDA) Pro-Street class, as well as the National Association of Diesel Motorsports (NADM) Unlimited events. By installing a Fluidampr Performance Diesel damper, Bully Dog will gain an edge on their competition by unleashing lost power and reducing engine wear through quality crankshaft torsional vibration protection.

Cracked, bulging and/or missing rubber are 3 early signs that a stock elastomer harmonic balancer is failing and should be upgraded to a Fluidampr performance damper.

Why?  Age and performance upgrades are the leading culprits.  Damping increased crankshaft torsional vibration can generates excessive heat that the rubber elastomer cannot readily dissipate.  As heat and age hardens the rubber it cracks, bulges and eventually crumbles apart compromising the dampers ability to adequate protect your engine.  Stock damper failure is a serious safety concern if the outer inertia ring separates from the elastomer layer and grenades inside the engine bay.

Fluidampr features durable viscous silicone, which is known to be one of the leading damping materials for superior heat dissipation and thermal stability.




Does A Fluidampr Performance Damper Affect A Vehicle’s Warranty?

 The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (U.S. Code – Title 15, Chapter 50, Sections 2301-2312), enforced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) outlines the effects an aftermarket part has on a vehicles manufacturer’s warranty.  In summary, a manufacturer or dealer cannot void the warranty on a vehicle due to an aftermarket part unless they can prove that the aftermarket part caused or contributed to the failure in the vehicle.  In addition, a manufacturer or dealer cannot void or deny warranty coverage simply because someone other than the dealer did the work, unless they can prove that said work contributed.
