Magnet Free

FAST Crank Trigger

The folks at Fuel Air Spark Technology have recently developed a crank trigger setup that, instead of using magnets and an inductive pickup to trigger your engine's ignition, uses a completely innovative design that solves the potential problems of a magnetic crank trigger. Its accuracy comes from a totally new trigger wheel creation that uses tabs that are measured by the inductive sensor at the wheel as it revolves. Because it essentially uses distance to operate, it provides a much more accurate rpm measurement. The wheel's one-piece configuration means it's incredibly sturdy and it's also compatible with many other EFI systems on the market.

Mighty Module

Dakota Digital GPS and BUS Interface Module

Dakota Digital now offers this GPS Interface module that allows you to link up your speedometer, compass, clock, and altimeter functions to your dash, even if you have another brand of gauges. The GPS-50-1 is an advanced electronic device that provides the user with very accurate data based on their position on the globe. With previous designs, GPS units would often get confused when going under bridges or through tunnels, but the engineers at Dakota Digital came up with this piece that virtually eliminates those problems by using accelerometers and predictive software.

Under Control

'73-77 Chevelle A-Body Rear Axle Control Arms

These days, second-generation A-bodies are coming into their own as a choice for high-performance Pro Touring hot rods. Added power and sticky tires place demands that the original chassis components cannot withstand. These TIG-welded 13/8-inch DOM steel tubular control arms will handle that increased torque and cornering force with graphite impregnated urethane bushings. A high strength and high angle rod end with a Teflon-lined inner bearing race, offers durability and noise reduction; you can also fine-tune the rear axle pinion angle by altering the assembled length of the upper control arms.

Hold It

Drag Spec Dual Staging Brake

The SS4+ staging brake was designed for the heavier radial type cars that require dual rear calipers, and features a pair of aluminum four-piston calipers mounted to an 11-inch (two-piece) directionally vaned, slotted, drilled, and zinc-plated rotor. The S4 caliper features dual seals (pressure and dust) so it meets all DOT specifications, has stainless steel pistons, and with the thick 1-inch vented rotor is perfect for the heavier radial cars. The bracket included in the system is bearing specific (currently available for all 9-inch variants, and the 10/12 bolt 3.150-inch hybrid), one-piece, and also acts as a bearing retainer. Since the SS4+ staging brake is mounted to an 11-inch rotor it has a very small footprint that can fit in a wide variety of wheels, including dual beadlock applications.

Improved Handling

Rolling Bearing Spring Perches

Stock perches use rubber as the bushing between the perch and the perch-mounting shaft, which greatly increases the effort required for your suspension to move. Their roller spring perches use roller bearings to reduce this resistance, which improves ride quality, handling, and responsiveness to the road.
