Classic

12 Jul

It’s in Greek, but it’s well worth watching. One of the most special cars ever produced. In a world where new cars have a short shelf life, this model remains timeless and incredibly valuable. It’s feel and overall character are what most sports cars aspire to be when they grow up.

Supercup Seats

12 Jul

New from Momo is their latest generation Supercup seat. You guys know the deal – you want a racing seat, it’s got to be quality since it’s such an integral safety item. The ones you find are either: 1. too small that a normal size person can’t fit; 2. too expensive that a normal person can’t afford them; 3. from some knock off, made in god-knows-where country where they don’t give a rat’s rear end about your safety.

Well Momo addressed those concerns and more, and designed what might be the ultimate performance seat.

1. It’s from Momo, a name synonomous with motorsport for decades. They are an Italian firm, and have always pushed the design and manufacturing envelope. Their products are found on everything from Formula cars, to GT race and sports cars, to creations entered at Pikes Peak and Paris-Dakar rally. They are well designed, well built, and last.

2. They are thoughtfully sized. These come in both standard and XL sizes. The standard size will fit someone up to around a 34 inch waiste. The XL version is good for someone up to about a 38-40 inch waiste. They are made using Airtex fabric, which helps keep you cool and lets the seat breathe. Both the standard and XL dimensions are shown in the above pictures.
3. They are FIA Approved (November 2011 specs too!)

4. They are affordable! We’re running specials right now at under $600 per seat and free shipping!

Need a package deal with side mounts, etc? No sweat, we can easily put that together. Want harnesses too? Just ask!

Tired of your intercooler hoses blowing off on the street or track? Hate the look of unsightly T-Bolt or Worm Drive clamps? Doing a custom pipe setup and don’t want to deal with rubber or silicone interconnects? Have we got a solution for you!

Vibrant has introduced their new VanJen clamp system. Constructed entirely from T6061 aluminum, and featuring a unique Quick Release clamping mechanism, the Vibrant VanJen Clamp provides a leak-free, modular connection that is ideal for pressurized air applications. Capable of withstanding up to 110 psi. operating pressure and temperatures up to 400 deg. F, the VanJen Clamp System is ideal for turbo intake plumbing.

The VanJen Clamp System consists of 2 weld fittings (with O-Rings), one union sleeve, a safety pin and a spring loaded clamp assembly designed specifically for automotive use. Once the fittings are welded to the tubing, the union sleeve houses the fittings and is held in place by the clamp assembly. Once assembled, the VanJen Clamp System provides a flexible connection that can withstand vibration, movements along its axis, lateral misalignment and angular deflection (up to 12 deg.).

These are offered in sizes ranging from 2.5 inch outer diameter to 4 inch outer diameter, in 1/2 inch increments. These are the ultimate solution for intercooler pipes, supercharger pipes, and intakes, where you want a simple, clean, totally sealed union between 2 pipes without having to worry about silicone interconnets or unsightly worm drive clamps.

Fittings, Union Sleeves and Clamps can also be purchased as separate components – contact us for details.
