Max-Fire Spark Plug Wires from Edelbrock
Edelbrock has introduced Max-Fire® Ultra-Spark® performance spark plug wires for V8 engines.

Max-Fire Ultra-Spark performance spark plug wires are manufactured in the USA from highest quality materials to help deliver maximum voltage - ensuring the ultimate performance for engine output. These wires have an extremely high EMI/RFI suppression along with a very low resistance to help deliver the most spark possible. They feature a heavy duty 8.5mm diameter silicone jacket to protect the Kevlar spiral wound core from heat, moisture and chemicals.

Max-Fire offers two levels of spark plug wires; Ultra-Spark 500 and Ultra-Spark 50. Ultra-Spark 500 is a great choice for replacing OEM wires and are value priced. They feature high quality leads that deliver 500 ohms of EMI/RFI noise suppression with low resistance. They are ideal for daily drivers and for budget builds, offering the best combination of value and performance.

Ultra-Spark 50 spark plug wires are engineered for high performance engines that need all of the voltage they can get for maximum power output. They are made with wire leads that deliver a low 50 ohms of resistance per-foot for maximum EMI/RFI noise suppression. This makes them ideal for engines with aftermarket high performance upgrades that require maximum voltage. Visit the Edelbrock website here for application chart.

Each kit includes 8 spark plug wires (varying lengths), points style terminals, HEI plug style terminals, straight distributor boots, 90° distributor boots, distributor to coil wire, dielectric grease and installation instructions. Will require the use of a wire crimping tool to complete the installation.

PROFORM® PTFE Black Carburetors
Proform’s latest upgrade to its line of carburetors is adding Black Diamond coating to main bodies and fuel bowls. This non-stick coating has PTFE (popularly known as Teflon®), which improves heat-dissipation and durably combats dirt, oil, and rust. Black Diamond reduces fuel temperature by as much as six percent. In addition to being denser for improved combustion, cooler fuel is less likely to vapor-lock.

Eight new Black Diamond mechanical secondary applications are currently available. Street Series models are offered in three levels: 650, 750, and 850 cfm. Race Series units -- which delete the air horn, choke tower, and choke control for maximum flow -- come in 650, 750, 850, 950, and 1050 cfm. All Proform carburetors are hand-assembled in the USA and are individually engine-tested prior to shipping. Features include:

• High-flow aluminum main bodies
• High-performance down-leg boosters
• Billet throttle baseplates with button-head Torx screws
• Power valve blow-out protection
• Lightweight die-cast aluminum fuel bowls with 3/8-inch inverted flare fuel inlet fittings
• Fuel level sight-glass windows for easy float adjustments
• Changeable idle air bleeds
• Billet metering blocks: no warping or porosity
• Changeable idle feed restrictors and emulsion jets
• Serviceable throttle levers
• Slip-link secondary linkage
• Easy-access secondary idle air flow
• Changeable high-speed bleeds
• Notched secondary floats
• Secondary jet extensions
• Non-stick gaskets

A new feature being launched with the Black Series is a newly designed throttle return spring bracket to accommodate popular Detroit Three applications. Additional carburetor accessories are also available that include air bleed kits, jet kits, needle/seat assemblies, a billet plate that holds up to 22 pairs of jets, phenolic spacers/adapters, a float adjustment tool, and a power valve remover tool.

Four New Front Tire Sizes from Mickey Thompson
The ET Front from Mickey Thompson is one of the most popular front tires for racecars including dragsters and land speed racers. Now available in two new 17-inch sizes, the company has also introduced two additional 15-inch sizes.

“The new 15-inch sizes are narrower for racers who need that fitment,” continued Moulton. “Because the tread patch is narrower, the tire is also lighter with less rolling resistance.”

The ET Front utilizes an ultra-light design and tubeless construction – the perfect choice for high-speed applications. For more information, visit
