Clean up those dingy high-beams, as well as any Lexan, Plexiglas, polycarbonate, fiberglass and polished metal surfaces with No Touch's new Perfect Plastic spray. Just shake it, spray and buff it out to give your car's surfaces a perfect shine. Then repeat the process using the No Touch Perfect Plastic spray.

Well, happy days are here, friends, because Nitto has released the NT01 in a bunch of new sizes. Many new sizes are available, but the Super Street market (that's us!) will find that, of the new sizes, the 225/45ZR15, 215/45ZR17, 255/40ZR17or 315/35ZR17-sized tires will suit its needs best.

Ditch those fruity pink Ice Creams and strap on a pair of these JDM-tight 5Zigen shoes. These limited-edition kicks are the result of a special collaboration project between 5Zigen and Asics and, after this initial run is gone, will never be produced again. Pick up a pair and make your Sneaker Freaker-addicted friend jealous as hell.

Rides: Scion tC

Your Scion tC has a bit of a breathing problem: It just can't suck in as much air as it needs to make big power. Clear out your tC's breathing passages by installing an Advanced Flow Engineering cold air filter. According to aFe, this intake flows 87- percent better than stock and produces 5.5 hp and 7 lb-ft of torque at 5,000 rpm.

Think titanium is the be-all, end-all lightweight material for engine building? Think again. Supertech Performance's all-new aluminum retainers are made from extruded black anodized aluminum magnesium alloy. These new retainers are lighter, stronger and cheaper than titanium retainers and are designed to work specifically with Supertech's new 10 degree keepers.

Rides: Yours

Now you can have a racing harness in your car and still be able to reach forward and change the radio station. These retractable racing harnesses from Corbeau use an inertia reel to allow you the freedom to move about your car's cabin--just like your factory seatbelts. Any sudden movement (like a crash) will lock them up and keep you from flying through the windshield. For track days, just a twist of a knob will lock these Corbeau belts in place, giving them the performance of a regular, fixed harness.

What: Underdrive Pulley Kit
Rides: 2007-08 Mazda3, MazdaSpeed3
Source: www.srmotorsports.com; 925.516.7382
Your Mazda3's air conditioning system is robbing you of precious horsepower, but you already knew that. Don't be stupid and yank out the A/C; the ladies don't like rolling around in an oven in the middle of July. Instead, install SR Motorsports' 50 state legal lightweight billet 6061 aluminum pulley kit. You'll free up some ponies and keep your car cool enough to pop nipples all year round.
