New at Summit Racing Equipment: Dashes Direct Dash Pads for Ford

Tallmadge, OH (PRWEB) June 17, 2015

Dash pads exposed to big swings in temperature and sun damage which leads to cracking and fading. Summit Racing now offers Dashes Direct replacement dash pads for Ford Mustang and F-series trucks to fix the problem. Dashes Direct makes two types of dash pads right here in the USA:

Reproduction Dash Pads

These premium quality replicas of OEM dash pads are made from automotive-grade, integral skin polyurethane and vacuum-formed vinyl. The pads are backed with steel inserts produced on a computer-controlled CNC punch press. These pads are available for 1964.5-86 Mustang in factory colors to match the interior. Pads are also available for 1975-86 Ford F-150.

Original Ford Tooling Dash Pads

Like the name says, these dash pads are made on the original Ford tooling using materials from the same suppliers Ford used back in the day. The result is a dash pad that fits and looks exactly like the factory pads. The Original Ford Tooling Dash Pads are available for 1964.5-66 and 1969-73 Mustang, plus 1967-74 Ford F-100 pickups.

Summit Racing also carries these Dashes Direct products:

Pony Interior door panels for 1965-66 Mustang
Deluxe door panels for 1967-73 Mustang
Armrest pads for 1967-70 and 1987-93 Mustang

New at Summit Racing Equipment: KYB Strut-Plus Strut Assemblies

Tallmadge, OH (PRWEB) March 06, 2015

KYB Strut-Plus Strut Assemblies are the easy, all-in-one solution to restore a vehicle’s handling and ride control. At the heart of the Strut-Plus is a KYB Excel-G Gas strut that is calibrated to compensate for wear caused by vehicle age and mileage. The KYB Strut-Plus comes pre-assembled to save installation time and eliminate possible assembly errors.

Unlike other manufacturers, KYB makes the Strut-Plus very application-specific instead of trying to make one assembly fit several applications. That means owners get the handling and ride control their vehicle had from the factory.

The KYB Strut-Plus Strut Assemblies feature:

New and improved coil spring design, custom tuned for corner-specific ride height and vehicle design
OEM quality bearing plates and insulators optimize steering smoothness, quiet operation, and help maintain proper front end alignment
New polyurethane boot and travel-limiting bumper protect the strut shaft from dirt and debris

Summit Racing offers KYB Strut-Plus Strut Assemblies for many 1985 to 2013 domestic and import vehicles. Upper and lower spring isolators are included.

eMetrics Summit San Francisco Agenda Announced – It’s All About You

Santa Barbara, California (PRWEB) December 13, 2014

The full agenda for the eMetrics Summit in San Francisco (March 29 – April 2, 2015) has been released, marking a significant shift in format toward professional development and interactivity for the audience.

The eMetrics Summit, the original event about gleaning marketing insight from data, is becoming much more interactive. Major brands and top industry experts will still present, but there will be fewer keynotes and PowerPoints in favor of group activities. Attendees will have more time to discuss their business challenges and grow their network of business acquaintances, mentors and colleagues.

“If the Internet has taught us anything, it’s that people really want to learn from people,” said eMetrics Summit Founder, Jim Sterne. “Lectures and presentations are great, but you can read blogs and watch videos all day long. The real value of gathering in person has always been in the hallways and the receptions and the meals where you meet your peers and share your story. The value of going to a conference is overwhelming when the audience is respected.”

The eMetrics Summit now includes multiple opportunities to meet fellow marketing analytics professionals in a variety of undertakings: roundtable discussions, analytics exercises, speed dating, receptions and meals have been designed to make the most of gathering in person.

A powerful lineup of relevant brands to introduce important topics for discussion includes American Eagle Outfitters, AT&T, Autodesk, CVS, Electronic Arts, Ernst & Young, Facebook, Ford, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Nestle and Prudential.

Additionally, top industry specialists will be providing sage advice on how to increase sales, lower costs and improve customer satisfaction with data. Experts like these will inform and be on hand to answer questions:

    Feras Alhlou (visualization)
    Gary Angel (the truth about Big Data)
    Ole Bahlmann (mobile app metrics)
    Jim Cain (analytics project management)
    João Correia (visualization)
    Tammy Everts (brain imaging)
    Adam Greco (web analytics)
    Gregory Kaminski (visualization)
    Kayden Kelly (change management)
    Ronny Kohavi (experimentation)
    Russell McAthy (online branding)
    Kelle O’Neal (data governance)
    Laura Patterson (executive communication)
    Eric Siegel (predictive analytics)
    Jennefer Veesenmeyer (dashboards)
    Monica Wheat (social media)

Sterne’s advice is, “Bring business cards! Yes, they sound old fashioned, but the ability to reach out to the people you meet at the conference is the most significant outcome of all.”

New at Summit Racing Equipment: Tanks Inc. Fuel Tanks and Fuel System Components

Tallmadge, OH (PRWEB) November 07, 2014

The fuel tanks in classic GM musclecars are pushing 50 years old and are not set up to handle an in-tank fuel pump for use with electronic fuel injection. A brand new Tanks, Inc. fuel tank and matching GPA fuel pump module from Summit Racing is practically a drop-in solution to fuel delivery issues.

Tanks Inc. fuel tanks are made from die-stamped heavy gauge galvanized steel with a protective silver powdercoat finish. The tanks have EFI style internal baffling and an extra large internal fuel tray built in to prevent fuel pump starvation. The optional fuel pump and sender are recessed in the tank for easy installation with no modifications needed—the tank will look like OEM from the outside. Tanks Inc. even includes mounting straps with most fuel tanks, plus O-ring gaskets and screws for the fuel pump and sending unit.

Summit Racing has fuel tanks for these vehicles:

1964-72 GM A-body
1967-73 Camaro and Firebird
1962-72 Chevy II/Nova
1955-57 Chevy
1964.5-68 Mustang

The GPA Series Fuel Pump Modules are designed for use with Tanks Inc. fuel tanks, put can be retrofitted to other tanks. They feature Walbro high-performance electric pumps in 190, 255, and 400 liters per hour (lph) ratings. The heavy 10-gauge, zinc-plated mounting plate contains fittings for the supply, return, and vent lines plus the electrical connector. The internal wiring harness, supply line, return line, filter sock, and insulator sleeve are included.

You’ll also need a fuel level sending unit. The Tanks Inc. sending units work on fuel tanks that are six to 24 inches deep—simply cut it to length. The sending units have a high-quality ceramic board rheostat for durability and work with all 6-24 volt electrical systems, positive or negative ground. The units are available in 0-90 ohm (1965-up GM), 0-30 ohm (pre-1965 GM), 240-33 ohm (Stewart Warner and other aftermarket gauges), and 10-180 ohm (VDO) versions.

Summit Racing has those from Tanks Inc.fuel pressure regulator, fuel filter, and fuel rail adapters for enthusiasts building a fuel system from scratch.

There are solid tech articles and installation videos on Tanks Inc. website.
