Those looking for a little help wrangling all that power in the Pro Mod ranks, look no further.
Liberty’s Gears made a big announcement at the PRI show, debuting a new purpose-built 3-speed and 2-speed transmission for Pro Mod.
“We designed this transmission to handle over 4,000 horsepower, so it is basically to go after Pro Mod right now,” said Craig Liberty. “It is made to bolt direct. There are no adaptors, it’s got a female input. It is very short and a very small unit. We tried to make it as light as possible, but to handle 4,000 horsepower it did get a little heavier than we wanted.”

But when it comes to braking systems, a double set of calipers tends to be just as good as a double helping of your favorite comfort food. Aerospace Components offers several different dual-caliper braking systems for both dragsters and door cars, which are particularly helpful in both turbocharged combinations and top-end stopping force. All Dual Rear Brake kits are specifically engineered for the double calipers with brackets and hardware; each system comes with the same high quality, Made in the U.S.A. products that Aerospace Components has become known to design and manufacturer.

The recently new open world of Pro Stock has inspired chassis builder Rick Jones to let the cat out of the bag on his new state secret.
Three years ago, Jones decided he needed to do something to step out of his comfort zone in building a Pro Stocker from his chassis factory in Galesburg, Ill.
The founder of RJ Race Cars and Quarter-Max Chassis & Racing Components decided the time had come to revolutionize front-end chassis design away from the proven method of decades.

As an inveterate consumer of the printed word I’ve read dozens of book reviews, and the one thing that’s always stood out to me is how dry and boring the vast majority are. Reviewers often seem intent upon impressing their readers with their vast knowledge of, well, everything. They love making comparisons between someone’s first attempt at a novel and Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s unmatched series of riveting works. Since I’m incapable of doing that, I’ll just plow ahead, giving you my personal impressions of two books that have recently crossed my desk.
