RIDETECH 48 HOUR CORVETTE PARTS COMBOS

New at Summit Racing: RideTech 48 Hour Corvette Parts Combos

Back in 2011 the suspension team at RideTech built a 1967 Camaro in just three days—and took it racing that very same weekend. RideTech did the same thing with the 48 Hour Corvette Build, transforming a tired 1972 Corvette into a fully equipped track monster. You can see the build video and learn more about the car here: http://www.ridetech.com/48hourcorvette/

Summit Racing has created RideTech 48 Hour Parts Combos that make a great foundation for a road-race C3 Corvette.

Engine and Drivetrain Combo
The heart of the 48 Hour Corvette is a Lingenfelter Performance 427 C.I.D. LS7 crate engine. RideTech added an MSD Atomic intake manifold and Blaster coil packs, a pair of Hooker Competition Darkside headers and motor mounts, and Magnaflow exhaust.

Differential Oil Cooler Combo
Gear oil in a Corvette’s differential can get mighty hot under extended road race use. If the oil is cooked, the differential won’t be far behind. RideTech’s solution was a pair of Earl’s Fluid Coolers and a Tilton oil cooler pump to circulate the gear oil and keep it cool under racing conditions.

Suspension and Brakes Combo
You’ll be shocked to hear that RideTech used one of its new Level 3 Suspension Handling Packages to improve the Corvette’s ride and handling. The build team also upgraded to Baer four-wheel disc brakes with Hawk pads, added a Borgeson quick-ratio power steering box, and equipped the Vette with 315/30-18 Falken Azenis tires.

Fuel Injection Controller Combo
RideTech chose to control and tune the Corvette’s EFI system with a Holley Dominator ECU. It allows tuning of fuel and spark for each individual cylinder for maximum efficiency and horsepower, has an internal data logger, and inputs for boost, nitrous, and more. Holley also supplied the necessary wiring harnesses and sensors.

Accessory Drive and A/C Combo
A C3 Corvette can get pretty hot, so Ridetech turned to Vintage Air for a complete climate control system based on a Gen IV Sure-Fit kit. Vintage Air also supplied a LS Front Runner accessory drive system that comes with a water pump, Sanden A/C compressor, 140 amp alternator, an ATI harmonic damper, brackets, and pulleys.

Electrical Combo
RideTech wired the Corvette with an American Autowire Highway 22 wiring harness to get the electrons where they had to go. An Optima RedTop battery provides the juice, an MSD DynaForce starter spins the LS7, and Cardone power window motors move the windows up and down.

Interior Combo
Sitting on milk crates while autocrossing was not an option. RideTech chose a pair of Kirkey Intermediate Layback aluminum seats to hold driver and passenger secure. Lokar provided many parts, including a drive-by-wire throttle pedal and module to interface with the Holley Dominator EFI controller’s drive-by-wire throttle system.

Completer Combo
Every project needs a hodge-podge of parts and tools to complete the build. The 48 Hour Corvette was no exception. This combo includes DEI heat wrap and insulation, a Quick Trick alignment kit, a Mac’s Engine Pivot Plate, and assorted Loctite adhesives, thread locker, and silicone.

As Seen on PowerNation TV: Hypertech Max Energy Power Programmer for Jeep Wrangler

Jeep Wranglers are often upgraded with big wheels and tires, lift kits, and cold air intakes. But once a Jeep has been modified, the factory ECU can hold back overall performance. Hypertech’s Max Energy Power Programmer gives Jeepers the ability to manipulate the vehicle’s ECU to optimize the performance of aftermarket modifications.

Hypertech’s Max Energy Power Programmer can adjust a vehicle’s fuel maps to improve horsepower, torque, and fuel economy—which is really handy for a Jeep equipped with heavy wheels and tires, steel bumpers, or a winch. If a Jeep’s been fitted with larger diameter tires, the programmer can adjust the speedometer to ensure an accurate reading. Off roaders will appreciate the ability to set a lower thermostat threshold for electric fan operation. The programmer can also manipulate automatic transmission shift points.

As an added bonus, Hypertech’s Max Energy Power Programmer serves a diagnostic scan tool and will clear trouble codes. Owners can easily revert to the stock vehicle ECU configuration, if necessary.

The Hypertech Max Energy Power Programmer (HYP-52501) for 2004-10 Jeep Wrangler is CARB compliant, CARB EO Number D-260-15.

PowerNation TV’s Truck Tech team used a Hypertech Max Energy Power Programmer to complement an intake and exhaust upgrade on its Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited.

See a Hypertech Max Energy Power Programmer get installed on a Jeep Wrangler JK on Episode 12 of PowerNation TV’s Truck Tech. Watch the full episode here: http://powernationtv.com/episode/TT2015-12/wrangler-re-do-performance

Hi Khaled, 
You posted a question on our How to Install Piston Rings video. We wanted to get back to you. 
Take into consideration that even though you are clocking or staggering your ring end gaps, after sometime of running the motor, they will move. There is nothing in the ring lands of the piston to stop this. Therefore, the suggested clocking procedure is just that, a suggestion.

Now at Summit Racing: Hi-Lift Jack UTV Jacks

Make trailside service safe and easy. The Hi-Lift Jack Company is well-known in off-road circles for its trail-proven tools and gear for trucks and Jeeps. Now, Hi-Lift makes a pair of jacks designed specifically for UTVs and side by sides. These UTV Jacks are essentially scaled-down versions of Hi-Lift’s jacks for full size vehicles. That means they’re plenty strong enough for lifting a fully-loaded UTV.

The jacks’ extra-wide bases make them stable, even on rugged terrain. At a mere 30 pounds, these jacks are lightweight enough to be mounted practically anywhere on the vehicle using Hi-Lift’s optional mounting accessories.

Calling these basic “jacks” actually belies their versatility. Hi-Lift incorporates an adjustable top clamp and clevis into the design, which allows the jacks to be used as winches, spreaders, or clamps. Two jack models are available, one with a maximum lift height of 36 inches and one with a maximum lift height of 42 inches. Both jacks can handle up to 4,600 pounds.

When you need other parts for your motorcycle, UTV, or ATV, just visit SummitRacing.com or PowerSports Place by Summit Racing. Either way, we're your go-to source for powersports parts and gear!

Now at Summit Racing: Motion Pro Chain Breaker and Riveting Tool

Save money by staying out of the dealership.

Anybody who’s ever tried to replace a drive chain without the right tools knows it’s an exercise in frustration and sore hands. Motion Pro’s Chain Breaker and Riveting Tool will make chain removal and master link installation a hassle-free endeavor. A mechanically inclined rider can typically do the job themselves in an hour or two, eliminating the need for a costly dealer visit.

Changing a rivet-style chain is actually a three-part process, and Motion Pro’s Chain Breaker and Rivet Tool facilitates each step. First, use it to remove the rivet on the chain’s old master link. Then, switch to the chain press anvil and use the tool to install the master link plate. Finally, insert the tool’s rivet pin to press in and peen the master link rivet.

The tool body is clearly labeled to ensure it’s configured correctly for the job you’re using it for—simply match up the appropriate letter on the anvil to the tool’s body.

The tool will break, press, and rivet 520-, 525-, and 530-sized motorcycle, dirt bike, and ATV chains using a rivet-style master link. It comes in a handy plastic storage case that’s small enough to stow in touring luggage for roadside repairs. A spare rivet pin is included.

If you’re heading out on a trip, it’s a good idea to bring along a spare master link. PowerSports Place, a Summit Racing company, offers several sizes of master links.

When you need other parts for your motorcycle, UTV, or ATV, just visit SummitRacing.com or PowerSports Place by Summit Racing. Either way, we're your go-to source for powersports parts and gear!

New at Summit Racing: Project Thunderbolt LS Miata Parts Combos

Putting a big engine in a lightweight car is a time-honored hot rodding trick. That’s exactly what Tom Tharp of Tom’s Turbo Garage did when he stuffed a Chevrolet Performance 375 horse LS3 engine in a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata. You can see how he did it in the build stories and video posted on Summit Racing’s OnAllCylinders blog: http://www.onallcylinders.com/?s=Project+Thunderbolt+Miata

If you want to try your hand at an LS Miata swap, these Project Thunderbolt Parts Combos will give you a good head start.

Engine and Drivetrain Combo
The basis for the engine swap is a Chevrolet Performance LS376/525 crate engine, backed up with a T56 Magnum six-speed transmission. Tom sourced the Chevrolet Performance accessory drive, engine controller, transmission install kit, and parts from Moroso, Hurst, Innovate, and ACDelco from Summit Racing.

Exhaust Combo
Tom Tharp crafted the entire exhaust system from the headers back using a Summit Racing Rod Builder exhaust kit and X-pipe, MagnaFlow mufflers and Vibrant resonators, and Summit Racing V-clamps and exhaust tips.

Wheels, Tires, and Brakes Combo
Big horsepower needs a good set of wheels and tires to get it to the pavement. Tom Tharp went with a set of 215/45-16 Falken RT-615K tires on 16 x 8 inch Konig Roller wheels. He also added a set of Hawk HPS rear brake pads for some extra stopping power.

Heat and Sound Control Combo
A big V8 engine can generate some serious heat, especially when it’s packed in a small engine bay. Tom Tharp insulated the heck out of everything with Heat Shield Products heat sleeving, Thermo-Tec heat barriers and shields, Summit Racing sound deadening mats, and Lizardskin sound and heat control coatings.

You will also need some Miata-specific conversion parts to complete this swap. Tom sourced those parts from these companies

New at Summit Racing: Continental Hose, Belts, and Accessory Drive Components

Continental is well-known for making tires for high performance and luxury cars. The company also make high quality hose, belts, and engine accessory drive components for many domestic and import cars, trucks, and SUVs. Summit Racing carries a large selection of Continental products including these:

Super Elite Blue Hose Kits
Super Elite Hose is made from a special EPDM rubber, so it will last 5 to 10 times longer than regular hose. A Nomex®-reinforcing sleeve gives the hose a burst rating 10 times higher than typical rayon-reinforced hose. And you sure won’t miss that electric-blue color when you open the hood. The Super Elite Blue Hose Kits include upper and lower radiator hose, and heater hose. Some kits have a bypass hose if needed.

Accu-DRIVE Serpentine Belt Tensioners
Your belt-driven engine accessories won’t function very well if the serpentine belt is slipping. Continental Accu-DRIVE automatic belt tensioners meet or exceed OEM specifications for all major car manufacturers. By applying the correct amount of tension, an Accu-DRIVE tensioner prevents belt slip and helps keep accessory pulleys in proper alignment. That means belt-drive accessories can do their job and live a long, happy life.

Elite Poly-V Belts
Elite Poly-V belts have Continental’s Quiet Channel Technology which makes them much quieter than other belts. Advanced EPDM rubber compounds, a specially treated polyester tension member, and a unique staggered "Helicog" profile mean the belts stretch less and transfer more power than other belts.

Elite Timing Belt Kits
These kits take the hassle out of a timing belt service. They include the belt, tensioners, and cam and/or crank seals; most kits also include the idler pulley. The belts are made with reinforced rubber compounds and polymers, and feature no-slip precision-molded teeth.

Summit Racing also carries Continental radiator, heater, fuel injection, vacuum, and emissions hose; idler pulleys; clamps and hose connectors; and drive, power, and balance shaft belts.
