Adv.1 and Dymag Alliance Formed to Create Revolutionary Carbon Fiber Cf.2 Wheel

The ADV7.2 is the first wheel to come from the strategic alliance between ADV.1 and British performance wheel manufacturer, Dymag Group. The CF.2 construction consists of an aerospace-grade 6061 forged aluminium center utilizing the recently launched lightweight ADV.1 Advanced Series design. It is paired with a patented Dymag BOXSTROM carbon fiber hybrid barrel. The two are joined by lightweight Tikore titanium hardware.

The result is a wheel that is up to 40% lighter than OEM cast aluminium wheels, with a corresponding 40% lower moment of inertia – meaning drivers will experience faster acceleration, sharper braking, as well as vastly superior handling; all without compromising safety.

The alliance between ADV.1 and Dymag has resulted in an exclusive design and unrivalled performance. No other companies can bring together the design, engineering, and material expertise to deliver this level of performance, design and style.

Gc Cooling Releases 16v High Performance Cooling Fan

The 16V Fan was created after GC Cooling recognized a large demand for a high-performance cooling fan which could efficiently run on 16 volts.

Drag and circle track racers are opting to use 16 volt batteries to boost their ignition system as well as other components. The hotter spark caused by the higher voltage allows the vehicle to run a larger spark plug gap and boost the carburetor. When the hotter spark is combined with increased fuel, improved performance is achieved.

“We noticed the need for a 16V fan when we started working with Street Outlaws and the drag racers on the show such as James Goad and Jeff Lutz. After we worked on the 16V Fan, we were able to work with some top racers from Hot Rod Drag Week, including Lutz Race Cars and Joe Barry Motorsports, to put the fan to the test and get quick feedback,” said Bob Folkestad, owner of GC Cooling.

The 16V fan is available in a 16-inch diameter in a nonreversible push or pull configuration. 16V Fans have an overall depth of 3.5-inches and are a compact size.
