  •   Holley recently announced  the release of LS swap components for third-generation Chevrolet Camaros and Pontiac Firebirds. The GM third-generation F-Body has evolved from an oft-forgotten sports car of the 1980s into a capable and budget-friendly platform for hot rodders and racers of all walks of life. While the platform has proven to be competitive in various motorsports, the factory installed engines leave a lot to be desired. Luckily, Hooker Headers has the answer with their third-gen F-Body specific swap system that allows installation of the popular GM LS engines. It includes engine & transmission mounts, BlackHeart headers & exhaust systems, and swap accessories. Hooker's platform designed LS swap system ensures direct bolt-in fitment and correct driveline angles to help LS-swapped third-gens perform to their peak potential whether it's on the drag strip, at the autocross or any other venue.

  • Mickey Thompson has expanded the ET Street Radial Pro tire line with the introduction of the P315/60R15 size for the drag strip.  “We are pleased to introduce the new P315/60R15 ET Street Radial Pro size to the lineup,” stated Jason Moulton, Senior Product Development Manager for Mickey Thompson. “The ET Street Radial Pro uses the latest radial technology for quicker elapsed times. Minimal tread void delivers maximum traction, and the tapered-depth tread technology means powerful launches at the starting line. With this new size, racers will take the Outlaw Drag Radial class to a new level of performance.”
