May 2015 n Performance & Hotrod Business n 77 Octane Booster Champion Oil, Clinton, Missouri, presents its new Professional Grade Octane Booster. The octane booster safely stops knocks, pings, hesitation and restores perfor- mance. It also maximizes power, removes carbon depos- its, improves ignition and responsiveness, and helps fuel burn cleaner. The booster reduces the need for premium gaso- line and can be used at every fill-up to boost octane levels up to 15 points or 1.5 RON. It provides combustion technology for superior performance in a street-legal formula, and is safe and effective for use in all gasoline engines. 10-Inch Gear Third Members Mark Williams Enterprises, Louisville, Colorado, offers race-ready Third Members equipped with a 10-inch pitch diameter ring gear (trimmed to 9.5 inches) that can be employed in the 9-inch Ford-style rear end housing. The setup is suited to ultra-high horsepower applications like Pro Mod. The ring gear and companion pinion gear are housed in a rugged through-bolt-design alumi- num carrier. Gears are now available in ratios from 3.70 to 4.71:1, with 5.43, 5.83 and 6.20 coming soon. A special pinion support is employed, as is a light- weight steel spool. Honda/Acura Upper Control Arms PROTHANE, Costa Mesa, California, presets its Billet Upper Control Arms for Honda/ Acura applications. The control arms are black anodized with an engraved PROTHANE logo. The precision-machined units feature urethane bushings providing improved shock absorbing and performance handling over OEM rubber parts.
