Motegi Racing Sx5 Wheel
Bring back that classic five-spoke look with Motegi Racing's new SX5 wheel. Each of the SX5's five spokes feature ridges built into their backsides; they can't be seen but they allow for that ultra-thin appearance ... wide, but thin. The machined lip also adds a modern touch to this timeless, five-spoke design. This unique design can only be found with Motegi Racing's SX5. The SX5 is a one-piece cast wheel available in silver, glossy black and chrome finishes; it's available in 15-, 16-, 17- and 18-inch sizes, fitting almost any passenger car or small SUV.

Ebc Ultimax Slotted Rotors
EBC Brakes' new super quiet Ultimax slotted rotors improve braking in several ways. Most notably, the slotted pattern expels dirt, dust and gases from the braking surface. Slotted rotors also have the ability to maintain a flat surface despite thousands of miles of use and avoid the typical "record grooves" found when using plain rotors during aggressive driving. The use of sport pads to enhance braking has exposed the problem of record grooving and the new Ultimax slotted rotors solve that problem, maintaining a glass-smooth rotor and pad surface that mate together and form an optimum brake interface. Ultimax rotors are available for many Honda applications from $125 per axle set.

Buschur Racing Driveshaft Loop
Buschur Racing's true bolt-in driveshaft safety loop for the Mitsubishi EVO VII-IX is made from lightweight chromoly steel and bolts into the EVO chassis' existing bolt holes using the supplied hardware and side brackets. Loops are shipped in a black matte finish and include everything necessary for the installation. Buschur's driveshaft loop even allows room for a true 3-inch turbo-back exhaust system. Both IHRA and NHRA require such loops depending upon competition levels for safety reasons. If the u-joint, yoke or even the driveshaft breaks, the driveshaft can dig into the pavement or tear through the floor, causing serious damage to the driver and vehicle. Buschur Racing's driveshaft loop is designed to prevent that from happening. Bottom line: for $275, it's just a darn good idea.

AFE Scion Tc Air Intake
Advanced Flow Engineering (aFe Filters), an industry leader in performance cold air intakes, filters and exhaust systems, releases their Magnum Force Stage 2 cold air intake for '05-'07 Scion tCs. Pro-5R Filter Media and Pro-Dry S Media use a large 360-degree radial high-flow washable/reusable filter for maximum airflow and performance. These kits also use two-piece mandrel-bent, powdercoated, aluminum intake tubes that allow for smooth airflow management. Kits are easy to install and come complete with filter, intake tube, 18-gauge powdercoated intake housing that require no drilling and include all necessary hardware. In recent dyno tests, aFe kits produced 5.5 hp and 7 lb-ft of torque at 5,000 rpm. In flow testing, they outflowed the stock intake system by 87 percent. Pro-Dry S Media has an MSRP of $239.99 and Pro-5R Filter Media retails at $268.75.

Okada Projects' Plasma Booster is a high-power ignition amplifier, which drastically boosts ignition coil current. The spark increase is dramatic with the Plasma Booster; expect a 100 percent increase in spark current, which is the amperage going to the spark. With such an increase in spark current, the ignition process is quicker, creating a faster burn, thus leading to more horsepower and torque. Complete ignition decreases the incidence of "hot spots" in the combustion chamber and lowers the risk of detonation.

Miller Pulsed Mig Welder
Miller Electric Mfg. Co.'s new aluminum welding system features a newly enhanced Millermatic 350P all-in-one MIG/Pulse MIG welder combined with the new XR-Aluma-Pro gun to provide superior 4,000- and 5,000-series aluminum feeding and welding performance. This new system comes with everything necessary to weld aluminum out of the box, including the Millermatic 350P, a 25-foot. air-cooled XR-Aluma-Pro gun, reversible .035- to 31/464-inch u-groove drive rolls and a Teflon intermediate guide. The Millermatic 350P includes new pulse programming to meet the specific welding requirements of 4,000- and 5,000-series aluminum, while providing a more forgiving arc and increased consumable life. When combined with the XR-Aluma-Pro push-pull gun, special calibration software syncs the motor speeds in the gun and power source to provide optimal feeding. Additionally, an aluminum series-specific tension setting on the XR-Aluma-Pro eliminates wire-feeding problems and erratic arcs caused by operators setting too much or too little wire tension.
