Street Control Arms
Expanding upon their gStreet line of bolt-on performance suspension and steering products, Chris Alston's Chassisworks has recently added a set of tubular upper and lower control arms for '67-69 Camaros and Firebirds. The gStreet arms are a direct replacement for the factory components and can be used with factory or aftermarket spindles, coil springs, and antiroll bars. Large-diameter tubing and broad gusset plates make up the rigid welded assemblies. When combined with billet-steel pivot shafts and greaseable Delrin pivot bearings, the gStreet arms provide a significant handling improvement to any stock suspension. The upper control arms feature offset mounting inserts to further improve handling by adding up to 3 degrees of positive caster. Control arm packages include both upper and lower arms with various discounted optional components offered such as adjustable shocks, dropped spindles, and antiroll bars to round out the suspension system.

Extended Life
Amsoil announces the reformulation of its Extended Life XL Synthetic Motor Oils, now available in four different viscosities (SAE 5W-20, 5W-30, 10W-30 and 10W-40). The new XL oils contain Extended Drain Boost for longer service life in keeping with the lengthening oil change intervals of newer cars. XL has been formulated to meet the more stringent ILSAC GF-5 and API SN service categories and offers better engine protection for reduced maintenance costs in gasoline engines. Amsoil XL Synthetic Motor Oils employ an extra treatment of alkaline additives added to premium synthetic base stocks to neutralize acids. The extra additive package effectively raises the total base number (TBN) and resists shear to provide superior performance throughout the entire drain interval of up to 10,000 miles or six months, whichever comes first.

Solid Foundation
The key to building the ultimate handling machine is starting with a solid foundation. From show cars to race cars, pulling out your factory subframe, grinding off four decades worth of grime and corrosion, and then refinishing can be a time-consuming hassle. Now Hotchkis Performance has a new solution: a complete, pre-assembled and track-tested bolt-in subframe system ready for your '67-69 Camaro. The system starts with a high-quality steel subframe manufactured for Hotchkis by AMD-the same company that builds frames for major OEM manufacturers. The Hotchkis subframe features factory-style construction for a show-ready look, but has been reinforced for strength to provide a solid jack point on the lower crossmember. Every subframe is assembled by hand using the highest quality domestic hardware. The result is a tuned, balanced system that provides incredible handling, traction, and driver control.

Nicer Ice
Royal Purple has released a new, more advanced formulation of their radiator coolant additive, Purple Ice. Purple Ice reduces engine heat by reducing the surface tension of the radiator fluids for improved heat transfer. It helps prevent the formation of scale deposits in the radiator and lubricates the water pump seals. The new formula surpasses the old formula in corrosion and electrolysis protection. Another benefit of the newly formulated Purple Ice is that it immediately pacifies the aluminum in the radiator. This means that it can be used with straight water in aluminum radiators immediately with no risk or adverse affects on the aluminum. For more information visit www.royalpurple.com.
