Variohm EuroSensor has increased the range of its motorsports-proven Euro-XP non-contacting angle sensors, with a new 8 mm diameter D-shaft drive option, which is available with a choice of 32 or 38 mm PCD mounting. The D-shaft with its integral magnet makes for easier installation, particularly for throttle position sensing, without the need for a separate coupling. With the optimal magnet to sensing-element gap maintained within the assembly, and a choice of mounting diameters, form-fit interchangeability with competitive models is made easy. The coupling-free sensor is also convenient for direct connection on other motorsport position sensing applications such as steering angle, suspension and gearbox. The new D-shaft sensor joins the Euro XP family with completely contactless technology with a long-life specification in excess of 50 million movements. The fully encapsulated sensor element ensures complete environmental protection—rated to IP68, and high protection against shock and vibration—making it an ideal choice for challenging race track conditions.     

VP Racing Fuels has leveraged its technological prowess to develop VP Racing Lubricants, a family of fully synthetic professional grade racing oils and high performance synthetic blend oils as well as gear oils, an engine break-in oil and engine assembly lube. The new lubricants will be distributed via select independent lubricant warehouse distributors, race fuel distributors, lubricant package warehouse distribution companies, performance distributors/dealers and retailers. New VP Racing Lubricants include:
 
VP Professional Grade Full Synthetic Racing Oils: designed for professional, semi-pro and high intensity amateur racers for on track applications. They deliver superior durability and friction control and include high levels of ZDDP and a balance of friction and viscosity modifiers to maximize power and protection while lowering operating temperatures.  They’re available in SAE 0W-20, SAE 5W-30, SAE 10W-40 and SAE 15W-50.
 
VP Hi-Performance Synthetic Blend Motor Oils: designed for both on and off road, highly stressed, high performance gasoline engines. They’re well suited for small block race engines and classic, historic, vintage, hot rod, street rod, muscle and other enthusiast applications.  With enhanced levels of ZDDP and other anti-wear chemistries, they reduce wear, lower operating temperatures and provide exceptional rust and corrosion protection.  Available in SAE 10W-30, SAE 10W-40 and SAE 20W-50.
 
VP Engine Break-In Oil: a unique multi-viscosity oil formulated with a blend of high quality conventional base stocks, ZDDP, Moly and other additive chemistry to allow a newly machined engine to properly finish seating and mating machine engine parts. It provides ultimate protection for flat tappet, roller cam, push rods, cylinder walls, cam gears, pistons and other critical components during break-in.
 
VP Engine Assembly Lube: a premium high viscosity lubricant providing superior protection against scuffing, galling and metal transfer during the assembly and critical break-in process. Its superior load carrying ability along with zinc, phosphorus and moly anti-wear additives provide pre-lube protection for cylinder walls, piston skirts, bearings, camshafts, cam lobes, lifters, wrist pins and other valve train components
 
VP Hi-Performance Gear Oil SAE 80W-90LS: a multi-purpose hypoid gear oil formulated to meet the latest manufacturers’ requirements for an API GL-5 lubricant. Its high quality base stocks and unique extreme pressure additives minimize wear under high speed, high load and low speed, high torque conditions.
 
VP High Performance Full Synthetic Gear Oil SAE 75W-90LS: a superior extreme pressure, multi-purpose GL-5 gear oil designed to exceed the needs of automotive gear applications and race cars under high speed, high shock load and low speed, high torque conditions. Its superior shear stability minimizes viscosity loss while retaining solid film strength and wear protection under severe service, providing increased power, lower operating temperatures, reduced start-up wear and improved fuel economy.
 

Hammerhead Performance Engines introduced its unique Hemi heads for Fords. With an emphasis on completeness, the innovative head kits will include cast aluminum Hemi-style valve covers, a Jesel 1.7:1 ratio rocker system and all the necessary valve and spring assemblies as well as gaskets. The head kits can be directly installed on all small-block Fords: 289, 302, 351W and, with some modifications, even 351C engine blocks. There is more than one dimension to the introduction of this new technology. Following two years of development and testing, all of the mechanical details are now available. The heads will accept any current or existing intake manifold for the designated block, thus a 351w intake will operate on 351w block. In the interests of efficient air flow, the intake ports are raised to present direct air flow to the valves. China wall spacers and lifter valley cover are supplied as are FelPro 1262R gaskets that provide the interface. Within the 62cc combustion chambers, which facilitate pump gas compression when needed, reside stainless steel intake and exhaust valves of 2.200in and 1.650in respectively. Featuring 11/32-in diameter stems the intake flows almost 400cfm; the exhaust 275cfm. The installed height of the valves is 1.950in, which allows high lifts or around 0.800in and valve angles are set at 15 x 6 degrees for both intake and exhaust. While Beehive valve springs are supplied as standard for hydraulic roller applications, the heads will accept springs with a maximum of 1.500in OD. To its credit, no grinding is required of the block for exhaust pushrod clearance. In addition, it uses virtually any Windsor-style head gasket. The exhaust flange, which employs the Yates C3 bolt pattern, uses FelPro 1433 gaskets. Valve cover gaskets are of Flatout origin. It has a deck thickness of 0.700in to encourage safe use of power-adders or its full water jackets for proper cooling. You might also bypass its accessory bolt holes for the provision of factory components and its use of ARP 254-4311 head studs and point instead to its pricing.

Turn 14 Distribution, a performance parts distributor, has added caliper covers from MGP Caliper Covers to its line card. MGP caliper covers are designed to be easy to install, fit properly, provide ample wheel clearance, and most importantly, exceed the customer’s expectations. Crafted from aerospace-grade aluminum and stainless steel materials, the caliper covers are CNC machined and hydraulically formed for consistency. Through the use of a vehicle-specific mounting clip design and a patented stainless steel fastener system, MGP Caliper Covers provide an ideal fit on a large assortment of modern vehicle platforms. The caliper covers have been subjected to a wide range of testing, including heat soak testing, on- and off-road track testing, long-term road testing, stress testing, and corrosion testing, to ensure the consumer receives a product that will perform as advertised. The company offers officially-licensed products for Ford, General Motors, Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep, Acura, and Honda, along with products to work with vehicles from nearly every automotive manufacturer in the world.
