Max Fire
Mallory Ignition’s Max-Fire Distributor hides its electronic capacitive discharge ignition all within the housing, eliminating the need to mount a box on the firewall. Max-Fire generates multiple sparks for more than 20 degrees at low engine speeds and is said to deliver better throttle response, quicker acceleration, and cleaner-burning spark plugs. Compatible with all types of induction, the distributor is effective up to 30 psi of boost and equipped with a 3 BAR MAP sensor. The Max-Fire distributor electronic timing control allows users to choose from seven preprogrammed ignition advance curves or to create their own using a Windows-based laptop.

A Kakadu tent also features a high-density foam mattress, insect-screened windows and doors, internal canvas window shutters, UV-stabilized laminated PVC cover, and an aluminum ladder. The tent is designed to mount to ARB roof racks, as well as Thule and Yakima roof bars.

Reid 400
Reid Racing’s Super Hydra 400 is touted as a clean-sheet redesign of the GM Turbo 400 transmission case. The SH400 uses interchangeable bellhousings to fit most popular racing engine families. The company states the complete redesign of the case removes the OE horsepower limitations and allows it to pass SFI’s stringent explosion tests. The case is said to be fully compatible with OEM internals. Currently, street and off-road versions of the case are available.
