They are fully compatible with the primers, sealers, and other chemistry made for the Summit Racing Low VOC Paint System. UPDATE: Summit Racing now offers 2.8 VOC Hot Rod Flat Acrylic Urethane Paint as well!
Incredible stopping power for 2010-13 Camaros.
The Lowdown: Stopping power from one of the leading makers of performance and racing brake rotors. Since the late model Camaro is based on a platform developed by Holden, GM’s Australian arm—and Disc Brakes Australia (DBA) is an OE supplier—it stands to reason that DBA’s brake rotors not only fit like OE, but will greatly enhance your Camaro’s stopping ability.
Two Styles: DBA’s most advanced rotors, ClubSpec 4000 T3 Rotors are perfect for serious street and weekend track use. The 13.976 inch diameter rotors are made from an exclusive high-carbon alloy iron and TSP process that increases thermal capacity. That means the rotors can withstand extreme heat without warping or cracking.
DBA’s patented Kangaroo Paw ventilation increases available surface area, which provides awesome heat dissipation and dramatically reduces fade. The rotors have 48 curved slots that help dampen vibration for quiet, responsive braking and better pedal feel. DBA even added heat paint marks around the outside edge of the rotor that change color at specific temperatures, allowing you to monitor peak braking temperatures.
Ideal for street performance and daily driver use, HD Series 4000X Rotors have many of the ClubSpec 4000’s features, including the high-carbon alloy iron material, patented Kangaroo Paw ventilation, and heat paint marks that change color to help monitor peak braking temperatures. The 4000X rotors have a cross-drilled and slotted non-directional design that eliminates the need for specific left and right discs and provides a consistent, strong brake feel.
Feed that snarling, hungry supercharged Camaro all the air it wants.
The Lowdown: Nineteen percent more airflow means up to 30 extra horsepower. If you think your ZL1’s 580 horsepower is not quite enough, an Airaid MXP cold air intake can help you get over the 600 horsepower mark (with an aftermarket tune). The intakes feature a massive 4.25-inch diameter induction tube with a billet aluminum MAF housing, a 1,400 cfm filter element (your choice of Synthaflow oiled element or a Synthamax dry element), and a large one-piece, roto-molded air box that utilizes the OEM scoop.
Durable, affordable cargo protection for late model pickups that can also help improve fuel mileage.
The Lowdown: Cargo protection from basic to hardshell, Rugged Liner offers three types of folding tonneaus. They all come completely assembled and have an OEM-style tailgate lock and a built in light.
The E-Series Folding Covers feature a double-stitched 2-ply vinyl tonneau and a clamp-on aluminum frame. They can be installed or removed in less than three minutes. The Premium Folding Tonneau Covers feature a quadruple-stitched, 3-ply vinyl tonneau and a clamp-on aluminum frame. The covers also have a safety strap so you can drive with the cover folded up.
The Hard Folding Tonneau Covers feature top and bottom aluminum panels with a durable vinyl cover for ultimate protection and durability. They have a clamp-on aluminum frame and double-hinged seals to keep out the elements.
