Aluminized Fiberglass Sleeve with Snaps

This Aluminized Fiberglass Sleeve with Snaps reflects radiant heat from sources such as glowing steel slab, liquid metal pour streams, infrared heaters and other similar sources.

Aluminized Fiberglass Sleeve with Snaps made by high quality aluminum foil fiberglass fabric and snap. Aluminized Fiberglass Sleeve with Snaps is a flexible, aluminized, wrappable sleeve designed to protect components in high temperature areas. The outer aluminum finish is highly reflective while the inner layer of fiberglass greatly increases insulating efficiency.

This Aluminized Fiberglass Sleeve with Snaps reflects more than 95% of the radiant energy that hits its surface, keeping the underlying cables and hoses cool. Testing according to SAE-J2302 with a heat source of 480°C in 25 mm distance have shown temperature values on the protected component to be 40% lower than without protection.

ev-Torque Box a Single Speed Reduction Gearbox for Electric Vehicle Conversions

The ev-Torque Box is a single forward speed reduction gearbox created specifically for the growing electric vehicle conversion market. It incorporates a compound planetary gear set available in several popular ratios, a ceramic ball bearing on the ultra high speed capable input shaft, has directed splash lubrication and runs a th400 style 32 spline output shaft that runs in a double (back to back) cone/cup bearing set. All of this is housed in a polished T6 - 6061 billet aluminum case and weighs only 32 lbs.

See the ev-Torque Box in the New Product Section of the show or see it as installed in our demo vehicle the e-Miata Roadster - booth #35241

QA1 Expands Shock Accessory Offerings with Conversion Kits & Piston Rod Bullets

Lakeville, MN [October 28, 2014] – QA1 Precision Products, Inc., a leader in performance shocks, suspension components, rod ends and driveshafts, has expanded its offerings of suspension accessories to include additional T-bar conversion kits, extended upper eyelet conversion kits and piston rod bullets.

QA1’s ⅝” O.D. T-bar kit converts bearing eyelet type QA1 adjustable shocks to a bearing style T-bar mount. Available in 3” and 3.5” lengths, the T-bar kits include a zinc-plated ⅝” O.D. T-bar, two retaining c-clips, two ⅜” bolts, two ⅜” lock nuts and one specially designed QA1-exclusive ⅝” I.D. bearing. This new bearing style T-bar kit allows for higher levels of misalignment in applications where extreme suspension travel is seen. QA1 also offers ¾” T-bar kits for bushing style eyelets.

QA1 Releases American-Made High Travel Springs

Lakeville, MN [October 28, 2014] – QA1 Precision Products, Inc., a leader in performance shocks, suspension components, rod ends and driveshafts, is excited to release its new line of high travel springs.

Proudly made in the USA, these 2 ½” I.D. high travel springs are manufactured from specially designed high-tensile, chrome silicon alloy spring wire, which allows them to have fewer coils and a smaller wire diameter. As a result, these springs are lighter and have increased travel due to the larger distance between the coils.

“A lighter spring reduces unsprung weight and reacts faster, optimizing suspension performance,” said Dan Voight, QA1’s Motorsports Sales Manager.

In addition, this high-grade material, along with careful heat-treating and post-processing, allows for greatly improved fatigue life, and the coil design allows the springs to be compressed to coil-bind without affecting spring rate or free height.

QA1 Introduces M Series Interchangeable Cartridge Struts

Lakeville, MN [October 28, 2014] – QA1 Precision Products, Inc., a leader in performance shocks, suspension components, rod ends and driveshafts, is excited to release the M Series interchangeable cartridge strut to its lines of racing products for 1979-2004 Mustangs.

QA1’s M Series struts have a unique inverted design, in which a cartridge is inserted into the strut housing and acts like the piston rod. This drastically increases the strength of the strut over traditional strut designs, providing superior steering control and keeping the tires in correct alignment on all types of track conditions. The inverted design also provides less unsprung weight, which speeds the suspension’s response and allows for more precise handling.

QA1’s Street Star Shocks Now Offered with Eyelet Mounts in All Lengths

Lakeville, MN [August 24, 2014] – QA1 has expanded its offering of Street Star rebound adjustable shocks to include eyelet mounts on both ends of the shock in 7”, 8” and 9” shock lengths.

“This additional offering fills a demand for the most popular shock lengths in the most common mounting style,” said Dave Goldie, QA1’s Street Performance and Racing Product Manager. “The Street Stars are the perfect choice for giving any street rod a great ride, and they look great, too!”

QA1’s smooth bodied Street Star shocks are made of high-quality 6061-T6 aluminum and are bright anodized to create a durable shine. Drivers will get a smooth ride for their street rods with the comfortable compression setting and 18 settings of rebound adjustment. With bearing or polyurethane bushing mounting options, these shocks are great for fitting a variety of applications and are available in sizes as short as a 3” travel and as long as a 9” travel.
