1 2 3 1 >> Brake Fluid Test Strips Automobile brake lines are made of steel, but their bores are coated with copper, which eventually deteriorates and contaminates the fluid. These test strips alert you to the degree of contamination. Brake fluid is regularly renewed in racecars, though less so in tow vehicles. A simple color test that takes approximately 60 seconds to mature provides a visual indication of brake fluid health. $82 per 100 strips. www.brakebleeder.com 2 >> PRW GM LS Rocker Arms The Performance Quotient aluminum rocker arms are made from 6061-T6 or Series 7000 2024 aircraft-quality aluminum alloy extrusions. Each rocker body is relieved for extra valve-spring clearance and anodized for added strength. CNC-machined billet steel pedestals, ground steel alloy rocker shafts, PRW SCM-4135 alloy steel fasteners and needle roller bearings comprise the foundation of these rocker arm systems. Kits include all components and hardware required for a professional installation. $695. www.prw-usa.com 3 >> Racetech Seat Building upon the successful 129 series, Racetech offers the same ergonomic form and features, but in a lighter and more affordable package. There are three sizes available: standard, tall and wide- tall. Customize your seat further with low base cushions or side cushions for added support. The 119 series seats are compliant with FIA 8855-1999 standards, which requires seats to be back-mounted to the roll cage at shoulder level to improve seat strength and stability. $1,990. www.racetech-usa.com I N G E A R 18
