FireAde – Don’t Fight Fires, Extinguish them!

 

 

 

In the Motorsports that we cover fires have become a huge issue, Especially Fuel Fires which are some of the most difficult to put out. We have seen an entire vehicle burn to the ground on more than one occasion because of a fuel fire that could not be put out by conventional dry powder chemical fire extinguishers. We the folks at Fireade approached me with a product to solve this. While I was a bit skeptical they invited me down to their test facility in Georgia for some demonstrations. After seeing the videos you will believe in FireAde as much as we do. You can purchase your own cans at http://bustedknuckleoffroad.com/FIREA… or come see us at a race. We will also be adding their line of enforcer fire extinguishers and in car fire systems as well so watch for those and a install video at a later date. These FireAde cans are approved but Southern Rock Racing Series and Pro UTV racing. We are working to get many more series on board in the near future so stay tuned and stay safe out there on the trail and the race track.

16-Volt Guide: 6 Things You Should Know About 16-Volt Batteries

oac_0216

 

For some racers, 12 volts just aren’t enough.

Many drag racers and circle track racers have opted to run 16-volt batteries to give their ignition system and other components a boost. The extra voltage from these batteries creates a hotter spark, allowing you to run a larger spark plug gap and even jet up your carburetor. Combine that longer, hotter spark with increased fuel and you get improved performance.

And that’s not all.

16-volt batteries can enhance the operation of other critical race components including water pumps, fuel pumps, and trans-brakes. “Using a 16-volt battery and charging system is like adding a supercharger to an MSD box, nitrous solenoids, and trans-brake solenoids,” said Carl Pritts, an advisor in the Summit Racing technical department. “It makes them bigger, stronger, and faster.”

What You Should Know About Counterfeit Parts

On November 2 at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, NV, U.S. Marshals seized alleged counterfeit aftermarket automotive parts being displayed and sold by six Chinese vendors. The parts infringed on patents and trademarks on products sold by Jeep accessory manufacturer Omix-ADA, which worked directly with SEMA to shut down the alleged counterfeiters.

The raids brought fresh attention to a growing problem in the automotive aftermarket industry: counterfeit and knock-off products.

Although it was big news during the show, industry insiders say the issue of counterfeit parts is hardly breaking news. Following the raids at the SEMA Show, Omix-ADA released an official statement:

“The company views counterfeiting and infringement as a serious and widespread problem in the aftermarket industry and one that can be combated through proper legal channels, and would encourage other members of the aftermarket industry to follow a similar path.”

Aeromotive founder and president Steve Matusek has also seen an increase in counterfeited products.

“The counterfeit product issue is growing,” he said. “It’s not just growing in volume with certain components, it’s growing with more components.”
