First-gen Handle Bars
Take a long look at a modern NASCAR cup car, a '60s F1 car, or a 3,000-year-old Egyptian pyramid and you'll notice one similarity: lots of triangles. The triangle is the strongest shape in nature, so when a group of hardcore autocross racers asked Hotchkis to come up with a way to eliminate subframe flex in their first-gen Camaros, they looked to the past to define the future. The result: Hotchkis Chassis Max Handle Bars, the first tubular front suspension brace that triangulates the upper control arm pickup points to each other and the firewall for incredible rigidity, consistent driver control, and handling. It'll make the most of any high-performance suspension.

We Have Ignition
PerTronix Performance announces the release of the new Ignitor III ignition module, the first ignition module that puts the features of an ignition box inside the distributor. The Ignitor III contains a high-resolution rev limiter that is set by the user, and increases spark energy for more power and better mileage. Additionally, the Ignitor III features a multiple spark operation that, unlike most "boxes," continues throughout the entire rpm range for improved combustion. Simple two-wire hookup and the latest electronic components offer maximum efficiency and circuit protection for easy installation. PerTronix also offers a new line of Flame Thrower III Coils to further enhance the available spark energy of the Ignitor.

Anvil Auto introduces their latest innovation for customizing your muscle car: The Phantom Lens. These little gems replace the chrome pot metal bezels on the side marker lights for '69 Camaros and '69 Chevelles. They can also be incorporated into other cars during a custom build by cutting holes in the sheetmetal using the template supplied in the kit backed up by '69 Camaro lens housings. Anvil Auto's Phantom Lenses are designed to be painted to match a car's body for a stealthy appearance or chromed for a custom look. Black cars can use them right out of the box since they are injection molded in smoked polycarbonate. Side lights are visible when on and disappear when off.
Anvil side marker lights are now available through www.anvilauto.com, or you can order by phone at 888.723.8882.

Stiffen Up Your Fifth-Gen
Strengthen the floor pan and drive shaft tunnel in your fifth-gen Camaro with a driveshaft tunnel brace from BMR Fabrication. Constructed from 1x2x0.083-inch wall rectangular steel and 3/16-inch CNC laser cut steel plates, these braces replace the factory stamped steel design. The BMR driveshaft tunnel brace (PN DTB004) uses the factory mounting holes and increases rigidity of the tunnel in the critical area where the driveshaft carrier bearing is located. When used with the BMR subframe connectors, the driveshaft tunnel brace ties the driver side and the passenger side together into a sturdy cross-brace. Installation time is less than one hour. They are available in black hammertone or red powdercoat finishes.
