No Distortion Discs
AP Racing’s Strap Drive System has been developed both for street and race applications. The standard fitment brake discs on many performance cars can suffer from brake vibrations caused by disc distortion. This generally occurs on fast road and track installations. Offering a new take on the floating systems already in the marketplace, AP Racing’s Strap Drive System uses a series of stainless steel straps to locate the disc to the mounting bell, producing a flexible coupling between the hub and the disc faces. This allows the disc to run true in the caliper under all conditions without brake vibration and also permits the disc to expand and contract without restriction.

Improved Racing’s oil pan baffle was designed to improve oil control and reduce oil starvation in the ’10-present (fifth-generation) Camaro. The GM LS-series small-blocks have a history of being prone to oil starvation during long, high-g turns, especially at higher rpm where oil aeration is more prevalent. This drop-in trap door baffle system from Improved Racing provides effective and affordable protection against oil starvation for road racing, autocrossing, and drag racing.

Created for hot rods with modified and non-modified engines, Motul Performance 20W50 oil is formulated for pushrod and high-lift camshaft engines with high zinc content requirements including cars that aren’t driven frequently. Motul Performance oil is specially designed for hot running engines using shear stable polymers to maintain optimum lubricating film and ring seal. The detergent-dispersant additive prevents deposits from forming and keeps engine parts clean. Your engine will benefit from the anti-foam additive, two levels of extreme pressure additives for longevity of high-lift camshafts (with or without roller bearings), and enhanced engine break-in efficiency with increased levels of zinc, plus phosphorous to reinforce engine protection levels.
