DAVIDSON, N.C., Oct. 29, 2013 — Ingersoll Rand, a global leader in professional tools and equipment, is debuting a new line of 12V compact cordless tools at the 2013 SEMA Show in booth No. 10149.
As technology advances, automobiles get smaller and more complex. Technicians need compact tools to perform tight space repairs on dashboards, door panels and bumpers. The Ingersoll Rand IQV12 Series cordless tools enable technicians to access narrow spaces faster and easier. The IQV12 Series includes three Impactools™, two ratchets, a drill/driver, a screwdriver and an LED task light.
IQV12 Series Impactools are available in 1/4″ and 3/8″ square and 1/4″ hex quick-change models, and deliver 100 foot-pounds of reverse torque to tackle hard-to-remove fasteners in hard-to-reach places. Measuring just 5.9″ from tip to tail, IQV12 Series Impactools feature small-diameter, ergonomically designed handles for improved comfort.
QA1 is pleased to announce the addition of its new 53 Series stock mount twin tube shock absorber to its circle track line of products.
QA1’s new 53 series features a stronger, larger diameter body than the popular preceding FC Series. This larger body provides for easier gas bag installation and larger oil capacity for increased shock cooling. QA1’s 53 Series is manufactured in our Lakeville, Minnesota facility, allowing us to provide custom valvings to suit specific performance needs. The 53 Series is a perfect choice for Southern Sport Mods, stock cars, street stocks, mini stocks and limited modifieds.
QA1 is excited to add 600 and 650 lb. spring rates for its GM front Pro Coil Systems.
Designed for GM A, G and F-Bodies, Chevy S-10’s and Tri-5 Chevys, QA1’s 600 and 650 lb. made in the USA springs provide performance-style handling and support vehicles with heavier front end weights. These 10 inch, conical springs can be purchased separately or with QA1 GM Pro Coil Systems, making it easy to upgrade a GM style front suspension set up. The 600 lb. spring will support vehicles with a front end weight between 2201-2300 lbs. and the 650 lb. spring will support vehicles with a front end weight between 2301-2400 lbs.
QA1’s GM Pro Coil System springs are silver powder coated for excellent longevity and the ultimate in appearance. They are manufactured using the highest quality materials for high strength, consistency and durability. QA1’s springs are lifetime guaranteed to remain within 2% of their original free length under normal operating conditions.
QA1 is excited to announce the addition of its new 27 Series stock mount monotube gas pressurized shock absorber to its circle track line of products.
QA1’s 27 Series shocks feature easy, bolt-in installation and are available in all popular stock mount options. Multiple racing classes can easily install the 27 Series into several mounting configurations, making it simple for racers to get on the track and get the performance they want. Available in hyperscrew or sealed hyperscrew, these shocks are a great choice for street stocks, hobby stocks, mini stocks and other classes that require a stock mount shock.

QA1’s Ultimate Ball Joints are now offered with more stud length options.
Available in popular bolt-in, press-in and screw-in styles, QA1’s ball joints come pre-assembled with standard and up to 1” longer studs. Longer studded ball joints can help to improve the overall geometry of the car by increasing straight line stability and improving roll center. They also help to free up bind, allowing the suspension to operate smoothly through the entire range of travel.

BOWLING GREEN, KY - Quick Fuel Technology, known for its innovative carburetors and fuel systems, is introducing QFi - a bolt-on throttle body electronic fuel injection system capable of supporting 500 HP. While the market is awash with bolt-on EFI systems, QFi is different: It combines the superior fuel atomization aspects of a carburetor with the precise fuel control of EFI. The patent pending 8-hole annular discharge sleeves inject fuel into a venturi where air speed is at its peak, and pressure is at its lowest, atomizing the fuel far better than any traditional injector nozzle can do. This results in a much more homogeneous fuel/air mixture that burns faster and more complete, producing more power and better response.
