Total Handling

Stage 2 TVS For '70-'81 Camaros

The Hotchkis TVS already provides drivers with Sport Coils, Sport Sway Bars, Heavy-Duty Tie-Rod Sleeves, and Sport Leaf Springs, and the new Stage 2 system adds to that package with Tubular Upper and Lower Control Arms, which increase caster and improve the camber curve increasing frontend grip and traction, low-profile Subframe Connectors to stiffen the chassis, and Hotchkis Tuned/Bilstein shocks for improved vehicle control and stance. The result is a complete handling package matched and tuned for both street and track driving, which addresses alignment, stance, and chassis stiffness, and reduces body roll, wheelhop, and axle wrap-up.

Direct Fit

Billet Aluminum Hood Hinges For '62 Impalas

Eddie Motorsports has recently added to their line of billet aluminum hood hinges for Chevy Impalas with the introduction of their new model for ’62 Impalas. Eddie’s line now includes hinges for ’61-68 and ’70 Impalas. CNC machined from billet 6061-T6 aluminum in their Southern California facility, Eddie Motorsports’ Impala hinges employ stainless steel nitrogen-filled gas struts in place of the stock inferior coil springs. They also use high-quality needle bearings for a smooth and reliable operation. Designed as direct fit, “bolt-on” units, the hinges utilize the stock mounting holes that have been elongated for ease of gap adjustment. Eddie’s billet hinges are offered for steel, fiberglass, or carbon-fiber hoods and are available with a machined or brightly polished finish or in a wide variety of Fusion-coated colors.

Speedway Motors' GPS Speedometer Sending Unit

This is the latest technology in sending units for electronic speedometers. Speedway’s sealed electronic sending unit uses GPS triangulation to calculate true ground speed regardless of gear ratio, tire size, or any other mechanical factors, and no calibration is needed. The GPS Speedometer Sending Unit has a very simple four-wire hookup and can be used with 8- or 16-pulse aftermarket electronic speedometers. The compact unit has a footprint about the size of a business card and can be mounted underdash or underhood, requiring only 3 inches of clearance between the top of the unit and surrounding steel.
