As Seen on PowerNation TV: TSW Nurburgring Wheels

The folks at TSW Wheels put on their lab coats and designed a highly advanced production technique to make their Nurburgring wheels lightweight and extra strong. TSW calls it “Rotary Forging.” The process involves forging the rim of the wheel at high pressure, while the wheel is spun at high speeds.

The technique actually changes the composition of the aluminum at the molecular level, to greatly enhance the strength of the alloy. More importantly, the weight reduction occurs in the wheel rim, dramatically reducing rotational mass for better cornering, acceleration, and braking capabilities.

TSW Nurburgring Gunmetal Wheels come in 17, 18, 19, and 20 inch diameters in most common 5-lug bolt patterns. A wide range or backspacing and offset options are available. Select from a gunmetal or bronze finish.

The team at PowerNation TV’s Truck Tech liked TSW Nurburgring wheels so much, that it built a custom axle and widened a set of fenders just to fit the special wheels on the Truck Tech 1955 Ford F-100. Watch the full episode here:

New at Summit Racing: PowerNation Truck Tech Ultra-Cheap Dodge Ram Paint Combos

Can you do a professional-quality paint job for just a few hundred bucks? PowerNation TV’s Truck Tech crew wondered about that too. With a tired Dodge Ram pickup in the shop and just 500 bucks in their pockets, the Truck Tech guys set out to give their Dodge Ram a makeover. So off to SummitRacing.com they went to find some paint and painting supplies for the aptly named Ultra-Cheap Dodge.

The results were pretty darn nice—you can see for yourself in Episode 5 of Truck Tech: http://www.powernationtv.com/episode/TT2015-05/ultra-cheap-paint-job

Now, you can paint your Dodge Ram—or most any full size pickup—just like the Truck Tech crew did with our Ultra-Cheap Dodge Ram Paint Combos.

Paint Prep Combo
Any experienced automotive painter will tell you that the job involves 99 percent prep work and one percent actual painting. With that in mind, the Truck Tech team gathered the necessary cleaners, fillers, masking materials, and surface prep products needed to ensure the resulting finish would be fantastic. The Paint Prep Combo includes:
• Evercoat Rage Xtreme lightweight body filler
• SEM Metal Bite finish glaze
• Summit Racing surface wash
• Summit Racing wax and grease remover
• 3M Scotch-Brite sanding pads (set of 20)
• Astro Pneumatic wheel covers
• Dura-Block six inch masking paper log
• Dura-Block 12 inch masking paper log
• Dura-Block 18 inch masking paper log
• 3M .75 inch masking tape
• 3M 1.5 inch masking tape
• DeVilbiss Whirlwind disposable air filters

Paint Finish Combo
This combo is based on Summit Racing’s 2-Stage Basecoat-Clearcoat Paint System. The paint is easy to use, and flash time between coats is just minutes. In fact, the basecoat will be ready for the 2-Stage System clearcoat in less than an hour. The combo includes:
• Pure White basecoat paint
• High-solids clearcoat
• 2K urethane primer surfacer
• 2.1 VOC primer sealer
• 2-Stage basecoat reducer
• 2-Stage clearcoat hardener
• Urethane activator, medium and slow formulations
• Urethane reducer, medium and slow formulations
• Summit Racing Paint Starting Kit

If you don't dig the Pure White basecoat paint Truck Tech chose, Summit Racing offers 37 other colors:

What’s the latest trend in automotive paint? Green.
Not the color green, necessarily. We’re talking “green” as in environmentally friendly automotive paints. These are paints that meet environmental regulations for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) within paints and coatings.

New at Summit Racing: Evans Cooling Waterless Engine Coolant
Engine coolant that doesn’t contain water? Sounds like magic, but Evans Cooling used basic science to create its Waterless Engine Coolant.

Water may do a good job of cooling you off, but it’s not so great for your engine. The boiling point of water-based coolant is somewhat above the boiling point of water. Hotspots within the cooling system can lead to localized boiling, generating water vapor (steam). When water turns to steam it pressurizes the cooling system, putting stress on hoses and other components. Water vapor is also a very poor conductor of heat. Hot engine metal, insulated by water vapor, becomes a hot spot that can cause pre-ignition and detonation.
What’s more, the oxygen in water causes corrosion and allows electrolytic activity, which damages metal parts. Look inside an old, neglected radiator and you’ll see what we’re talking about.
By eliminating the water, Evans Waterless Engine Coolant eliminates overheating, boil-over, and after-boil. It has a boiling point of over 375°F, far above the operating temperature of the engine. That high boiling point ensures the coolant will not vaporize. Liquid coolant is in contact with the engine water jackets at all times, providing excellent heat transfer away from the hot metal. No water also means no corrosion problems either.

Evans Waterless Engine Coolant offers protection to temperatures as low as -40 degrees F. It has a specially-formulated inhibitor package designed for all gasoline, light-duty diesel, LP, and CNG engines. It contains no silicates or phosphates, and requires no supplemental coolant additive.

Water and Evans Waterless Engine Coolant don’t mix well. If you are replacing water-based coolant with Evans, you must flush all of the old coolant out of the system. Then, use Evans Prep Fluid to remove any residual water after draining the cooling system. Summit Racing also carries Evans’ cooling system tester to check for any remaining water.

Keep Your Engine Humming with Dorman Fuel and Emissions System Replacement Parts

If you think about, it’s remarkable how well a modern engine performs while offering good fuel economy and meeting very strict emissions rules. We can thank modern electronics and other technology for that.

In order for that technology to do its stuff, every component in the fuel and emissions systems must be working properly. If something goes wrong, the engine will let you know by running poorly, returning poor gas mileage, or—shudder—triggering the Check Engine Light.

Fortunately, you can fix much of what ails a fuel or emissions system with top-quality Dorman replacement parts. Summit Racing carries many Dorman fuel and emissions components including:

Intake Manifolds
Most modern engines use plastic/polymer intake manifolds to save weight and production costs. As they age, these manifolds can start cracking and splitting. That can cause problems ranging from air leaks and loose sensor fitting to major coolant loss and overheating. Dorman makes replacement manifolds that have been redesigned to fix many of these problems. Manifolds are available for popular GM, Ford, Chrysler, Jeep, Toyota, and Volkswagen engines.

Intake Manifold Runner Control Valves
Dorman intake manifold runner control valves are designed to stay closed at lower RPM to improve low-speed and cold-engine performance. At higher RPM, the valves completely open to improve high-speed engine performance. Summit has Dorman runner control valves for BMW, Ford, Chrysler, Mazda, and Nissan engines.

A.I.R. Check Valves for GM
The A.I.R check valve is part of the Secondary Air Injector System. This is the valve that controls the air entering the engine. An A.I.R check valve malfunctions due to electrical failure, causing the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Dorman’s replacement check valves come with everything needed to complete the repair. They’re available for GM LS, V6, and four-cylinder engines from 1999 to 2010.

Leak Detection Pumps
If your Check Engine Light is on, you may have a leak detection pump failure. These Dorman evaporative leak detection pumps are designed to build pressure in the EVAP control system when the computer performs a self-diagnostic leak check. Dorman leak detection pumps are made to meet or exceed OE standards for quality and function. Summit Racing has pumps for Chrysler, Jeep, Mazda, and Volvo engines.

Summit Racing also has other Dorman late model fuel and emissions system parts including fuel vapor canisters and manifold flapper motors.
