Is your Diff not gripping these days? Well the good news for you is rebuilding your Dana 60 Center section isn’t outside your reach.  We took a peek in the Strange Engineering setup department to see how our trained setup technicians build our ultra-tough S60 units.

The first thing to do when beginning any project is to make sure you hav...

On of the most common

transmission failures is caused

the thickness o f the mid plate.

Some converters have pllots and

mounting pads welded and

some are module and can be

changed to accept any...

Thinking outside the box these days is really the only way to get ahead of the competition.

When we are developing carburetors for specific classes you have to look at the needs of the customer and figure out a way to make power.

However, most of the competition is aware of the obvious stuff so to get an upper hand you have to look in other areas.

I wanted to install the best system possible and Hurst was the logical choice. We actually featured the Hurst Roll Control in one of our previous issues (you can click this link to read...

 

Performance enthusiasts know that when it comes to engine air and fuel temperatures, colder is better.  With that in mind we first introduced the first CO2-based fuel and air cryogenic super coolers for drag racing applications in 2003.

 

The CryO2™ system uses liquid carbon dioxide (CO2), stored at 80 degrees below zero (Fahrenheit), to super cool intake air...
