Quickjack Your Corvette
A Corvette is a completely different animal when it comes time to raise it in the air for repairs or scheduled maintenance. A hydraulic floor jack and jack stands are simply the not best tools for the job. You’re going to want the Quickjack. The Quickjack vehicle lift features two hydraulic lift units that fold up to just 3 inches tall so they’ll fit under most any vehicle. Once the lifts and included rubber lift blocks are positioned, plug in the power unit to an 110V, 220V, or 12V DC power source and press the button. The Quickjack will safely raise your Corvette up to 21 inches off the ground.
Summit Racing Equipment
Speedhut, a manufacturer of custom-built automotive gauges, has released a compact electronic device that operates a cable-driven mechanical speedometer; no calibration or complex gearing needed. The device, known as the Speedbox, is a simple plug-and-play solution that uses an electric speed signal from GPS, CAN-BUS, transmission or ECM to operate a cable-driven speedometer. This is a great device for Vette owners who want to keep their stock speedometer. Considered to be the easiest speedometer conversion around, the small box never requires calibration, is extremely easy to install and can fit in the palm of your hand.
Let It Breathe
Do you want your Corvette finned aluminum valve covers to look cool and work great? OTB Gear recently introduced an innovative update to the 90-degree valve cover breather. This creative, new approach includes internal baffles to control oil splash. These cleverly engineered parts have a baffle and body cavity design that allows for full drainage at a forward or backward angle of 45 degrees; this means you have the option of mounting the breather on the outside of the valve cover. The cast caps are held in place by inconspicuous set screws for a clean look. CNC machining provides precisely located mounting holes. The breathers are available in polished or natural aluminum finishes.
