RaceQuip's tagline is: "The Best Value in Driver Protection." Their new Camlock belt set is meeting that challenge by offering loads of features, yet is priced affordably for the grassroots racer. The 751 series Camlock belt set comes in a six-point configuration with a pull-down lap belt design. The harness sets not only exceed the SFI 16.1 specification, they also pass the stringent FIA 8853/98 standard. This "dual certification" allows racers in some sanctions (SCCA, NASA, etc.) to use these belts for five years instead of just two. Like all RaceQuip harness sets, they can still be re-webbed and SFI certified after the expiration date. RaceQuip starts with a super-lightweight, 165-gram magnesium alloy cam buckle. The buckle features an engagement cone that allows the belts to snap into the cam mechanism at angles of 21 degrees left or right, and 11 degrees up and down for ease of engagement. Precise internal spring pressure allows a positive feel on the 45-degree (right or left) unlatch movement without fear of accidental opening. RaceQuip Camlock Harness Sets sell for $199.99 racer net, and are available in black, red, or blue. For more information, call 813-642-6644 or visit www.racequip.com.

Just like every other thoroughbred performance engine, the LS3 that comes in every fifth-generation Camaro SS and RS wants to breathe. The restrictive, plastic, factory intake not only looks dowdy, it also impedes airflow and power. After months of rigorous CAD, flowbench, dyno, and real-world testing, the airflow experts at Spectre Performance have introduced an all-new ProFab Cold Air Intake for the '10 Camaro that installs in minutes with basic handtools, significantly improves both horsepower and torque, and looks cool. The sweeping high-flow intake tube is topped with a Spectre high-flow, cotton-gauze hpR Filter, allowing the free-revving LS3 V-8 to breathe easier. As a result, the Spectre ProFab Cold Air intake creates an impressive 21 hp and 23 lb-ft of torque increase over stock. The ProFab Intake uses a high-quality, mandrel-bent polished aluminum intake tube to smooth, straighten, and increase airflow, a high-flow washable, reusable hpR cotton filter backed by an unlimited lifetime warranty and a laser-cut steel heat shield to block underhood radiant heat. Installation is a snap thanks to a machined slot for the factory MAF sensor and included are all necessary brackets, hardware, and complete step-by-step instructions to make installation easy.

Scratch Removal Machine
The original ScratchX formula was a simple, easy-to-use way to quickly remove isolated paint imperfections. Now the surface care experts at Meguiar's have created ScratchX 2.0 featuring a new, advanced formula that completely eliminates isolated scratches, fingernail marks, paint transfer, parking lot scuffs and other defects quickly and easily. ScratchX 2.0's advanced clearcoat-safe, micro-abrasive technology has the amazing ability to remove surface defects without using any abrasives that scar the finish. The result is scratch removal with slick, high-gloss finish enhancement for isolated repairs on your car's paint finish. While primarily formulated for easy hand application, ScratchX 2.0 can also be applied with a dual-action (DA) polisher. To achieve maximum results, immediately follow ScratchX 2.0 with a high-quality Meguiar's wax to preserve the finish.
