Alcon Unveil New Forged RC4 and RC6 Calipers For Road And Track Use

It might sound obvious, but larger, aftermarket brakes are one of the most significant changes an individual can make to their car. Bigger brakes mean greater stopping power, in turn allowing more speed to be carried into corners, ultimately leading to an upswing in driver confidence – a win-win situation. Those seeking to upgrade their car's braking system would be well advised to check out Alcon's latest caliper offerings, the four-piston RC4 and the six-piston RC6.

Beautifully manufactured from FORGED alloy, both the RC6 and RC4 calipers are works of art to behold, with exquisite engineering having been employed throughout their construction, exactly as the market has learned to expect of each Alcon product. Indeed, the firm has been producing some of the most advanced braking solutions for both road and track applications for 33 years now, a span of time that's enabled Alcon to develop an unparalleled understanding of high performance braking.

New Quick 6 Controller Simplifies Modern 6-10-Speed Transmission Swaps

The US Shift Quick 6 is a stand-alone clutch-to-clutch transmission controller designed for modern 6-10 speed automatic transmissions. Quick 6 utilizes a new self-tuning process (patent applied for), with an emphasis on ease of use and safety. The self-tuning capability and refined adjustment process enables an installation, setup, and tuning experience that is even simpler than earlier four speed transmissions, while maximizing adaptability to many different applications, vehicles, and power levels.

A new internal user interface streamlines the configuration, tuning, and troubleshooting processes. The self-adjustment capability and user settings enable a new level of shift quality for a stand-alone transmission controller. For applications where the first gear ratio of the chosen transmission is too low, second gear starts can be utilized to emulate a close-ratio transmission with one less speed. An integrated trans-brake option is planned for mid-2017.

New Quick 2 Controller Provides Simple, Easy Control of Four-Speed Transmissions

The US Shift Quick 2 is a stand-alone transmission controller designed to simplify four-speed electronic transmission and engine swaps. It includes the advanced architecture of Quick 4, but with a focus on simplicity and low price. A new, improved user interface makes setup and operation without a laptop easier than ever before.

A simple, inexpensive and easy-to-use controller based on Quick 4's Revolution architecture.

Featuring all of the data logging and diagnostic features of Quick 4, but without the complexity and features that are not needed for basic applications.

Designed for hobbyists and shops who need simple and straightforward transmission control with a proven, robust, and reliable platform.

The ability to connect to a PC and adjust all aspects of the tune and take data logs at no extra charge

An inexpensive and easy upgrade to the advanced Quick 4 controller is possible, if more features are needed later.
