| Beginning with the design team, they use Solid Works computer imaging as a baseline. The R&D team takes over from there to build a prototype. It then moves on to the Dyno Cell where technicians continually modify the prototype, run after run, until they're satisfied with the horsepower and torque increase. After the smoke clears, machinists go to work crafting tooling and fixtures to assure exact fitment of the production parts. Only then, does it move into the manufacturing facility where high tech CMM and Vector Infrared Tracer machines copy prototypes to NASA type specs. Automated punch presses, CNC tube cutters and benders efficiently create the tubes. Robotic arms plasma cut shapes and weld components together in one fluid motion from precisely written computer programs and fixtures, right along side their human counter parts. All Jardine RT-5 exhaust systems feature incredibly detailed TIG welds. Titanium systems feature an extra special process of being welded completely by hand in an inert oxygen filled chamber, resulting in immaculately pure and supremely strong welds. Carbon Fiber shells feature lightweight four twill weave and high glass resins built to withstand extreme temperatures. Moving on through the manufacturing line, the system is assembled by hand and end caps are carefully sealed with a high temp silicone to assure no exhaust leaks. |
The Jardine RT-5 exhaust system is derived from the development of an experimental system built for the American Honda AMA Superbike program. It's stronger, lighter, quieter and more powerful! Don't take our word for it, just ask someone who's raced one!
