JRi Shocks Announces Hydraulic Ride Height System Giveaway Winner

Mooresville North Carolina December 17, 2014 JRi Shocks is excited to announce the winner of our SEMA sweepstakes, Ride Height system giveaway. Attendees at the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas Nevada had the opportunity to enter a drawing at the JRi Shocks booth for a complete Hydraulic Ride Height system. William Hodge of Houston Texas was the lucky winner who couldn’t believe it when notified by JRi staff following the show.

“I almost deleted the email as spam,” said Hodge “I had no expectations of actually winning the contest and have been thinking about it since!”

Hodge is nearing completion of a ’69 Camaro project that has been underway since 2010. The car was a gift from his parents back in 1997 and has been a part of his life for over 17 years. As luck would have it, the Camaro is equipped with Detroit Speed suspension and JRi's baseline shock package so the JRi Ride Height system makes for an easy addition and a welcome upgrade.

Typical Applications

BSTFLEX V Titanium Exhaust Wrap

BSTFLEX provide special V Titanium Exhaust Wrap, same material as other titanium exhaust wrap.

Titanium Exhaust Wrap is extremely durable and capable of handling more heat than any other exhaust wrap found in the market today.

Typical glass fiber exhaust wrap is rated at handling 1200 degrees F of maximum direct heat, while V Titanium Exhaust Wrap is capable of handling direct continuous heat up to 1800 degrees F and radiant heat up to 2800 degrees F.

This V Titanium Exhaust Wrap is constructed from pulverized lava rock, extruded into fibers and then woven into a tight weave gives this material titanium-like strength and toughness. This improvement in thermal protection helps reduce underhood temperatures resulting in cooler air intake for improved performance. And less heat in the engine bay means reducing the chances of “heat soak” conditions on vital underhood components.

BSTFLEX turbo blanket heat shield

The turbo blanket isolates the heat produced by your turbocharger, and prevents that heat from damaging, or even igniting, components surrounding the turbocharger within your engine compartment, such as plastic and rubber hoses and electrical wiring, as well as painted surfaces, such as the engine bay and the surface of the hood. Also, it prevents areas of localized high temperature from damaging the engine itself.
