HITCHSAFE

hsanimation.gifHitchSafe launches its innovative new product at the upcoming SEMA Trades Show in Las Vegas (booth 34527).
 
The HitchSafe converts any standard 2" Hitch Receiver into a VAULT
requiring no tools and it installs/uninstalls in seconds.  The
HitchSafe fits INSIDE the receiver
 
The HitchSafe stores spare keys that will always be there when needed
most.  It offers the most secure key storage for when locked out of the
vehicle or simply when sharing access with others.   It is also great
for outdoor activities where carrying keys is a hassle and credit
cards/cash left inside the vehicle would otherwise run the risk of
being stolen.

The HitchSafe is secured with two hitch pins INSIDE the hitch receiver
via two sliding metal bolts.  The bolts can only be removed when the
10,000-combination drawer is removed.

The 10,000-combination HitchSafe spring-loaded drawer secures keys,
license, cash and up to two credit cards.  The HitchSafe is great for
active lifestyles where items can be stored during outdoor sports with
no need to hassle with carrying or losing keys/cards .  The combination
drawer is concealed and protected with an attractive dust cover.

HitchSafe is a division of the Frank J. Martin Company.   The Frank J
Martin Company is the manufacturer of security products such as the
ShurLok Key Storage, Combi-Cam Cabinet Locks and SOBO High Security
Padlocks.

90 Degree Intake Elbow for Turbo & Supercharged Engines

elbow1.jpgBULITPRUF by FAE has announced a new 90 degree intake elbow
for turbo & supercharged engines that use a carburetor type manifold. The
elbow incorporates many innovative designs. Three Patents have been applied
for. First is a smooth transition from a round throttle body to the square
carburetor flange of the manifold. Second and most important is a series of
aerodynamic devices, which turn the air 90 degrees without turbulence or
restriction. These devices ensure that the air distribution to the manifold is
uniform from front to back and side to side. All the cylinders get an equal
shot of the incoming air. And it flows more air than the standard elbows on the
market. 1620CFM @28”. It uses a standard Ford 105mm throttle body and is
drilled for either 4150 0r 4500 carb bases Call

RatioTrax is now available from Ram Clutches

Ram Clutches has now released the
RatioTrax software for Lenco Transmissions in a joint venture with Performance
Software Technologies. The software allows you to quickly calculate transmission
ratios, percentage drops, final drive ratios, and tire growth. Multiple gearing
combinations can be compared simultaneously.

The software will accommodate CS1, CS2, and CS3 transmissions built in two
through five speed configurations. The program can be fully customized so that
you can build your own inventory of planetaries and rear end ratios to fit your
specific application.

This program is a must for any team wanting to optimize their
clutch/transmission package to changing weather and track conditions. After
extensive testing it is being utilized by many of the top teams in IHRA
including Tony Gillig, John Montecalvo, and Pete Berner.

The program is available on CD or can be downloaded at www.ramclutches.com/store/software.
The software can be download and demonstrated free of charge for 30 days.

DMPE Inc. Supercharger Gel Lube and Remover

Darren Mayer Performance
Engineering Inc. adds to its ever-growing list of specialty supercharger
products by manufacturing the first specifically designed Supercharger Lubricant
and Lubricant remover.           

The DMPE Inc. Supercharger Gel Lube provides a better performing supercharger
by addressing Teflon wear and leak path control.  While extended Teflon /
Nylatron wear through proper lubrication extends supercharger performance
longevity, the Gel’s ability to cling to the rotating rotors and internal parts
also increases the efficiency of the unit by filling up the clearance between
moving parts. It tightens the seal between rotor to rotor, and end frame to
rotor clearance, thus allowing the supercharger to increase efficiency by
reducing leak paths.

This also reduces costs by decreasing time between overhauls. The gel lube is
not affected by methanol like many supercharger lubes, therefore provides a
better, longer lasting seal.

The Gel Lube Remover was specifically manufactured to remove the above
lubricant.  The lubricant was designed to hold up to most all solvents and
methanol, allowing the lube not to be washed away from the rotors, rotor bores
and internal supercharger surfaces.

Because of this it requires a “remover” to cut the supercharger gel at time
of re-striping.  It is important to remove all traces of the lube from the
Teflon grooves so that the Teflon does not pitch itself out of the rotors after
overhaul because of any remnants of the slippery lubricant.

Once all the rotor stripping is removed from the rotors, the dovetails should
be sprayed with the remover to ensure removal of all gel lube.  The Teflon is
then pulled into clean dry grooves (dovetail) and the supercharger can then be
re-assembled.

After the supercharger is re-assembled, liberally apply the supercharger lube
into the rotor cavity. We suggest that it is applied once a day, usually on
first start up. For more info and pricing please log onto dmpeinc.com
