1)  Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Tradeshow, Dec 1-3  Lots of new things to do and learn as the PRI show goes to Orlando for the first time.  Orange County Convention Center is HUGE, and I'm sure everyone who attended did not get a chance to see every exhibitor.

As we expected, the Cam Test Stand got lots of interest, as we took several orders.  Other new products we displayed included the Engine Build Log Book and an update to Circle Track Analyzer, v3.5.  Check out the "PRI 2005, Latest News" brochure we handed out at the show to get up to date on these and other new products by clicking on this link:  http://www.performancetrends.com/PDFs/PRI05%20Latest%20News.pdf


2)  Huge Price Reduction on A/F Gauge, DT2-AFG  The price of our popular DT2-AFG A/F gauge has been reduced over 20%, down to $329 from $419.  These gauges let you you watch the air to fuel ratio (A/F), or how rich or lean your engine is running.  This is the best tuning tool for setting up carbs or EFI systems.  You can use it just as a gauge in the dash of your car, or record it for playback with a laptop computer and our FREE software.  It also has an output for recording with data loggers, like our DataMite II.  This truly versatile tuning tool would make a great Christmas gift, for you to give or receive.  Check out the details at this link:  http://www.performancetrends.com/wide_band_uego.htm


3)  Circle Track Analyzer v3.5 Coming Soon  We've made some enhancements to our popular Circle Track Analyzer and called it Version 3.5.  It's still preliminary and is only available for "beta" testing.  Check out some of its new features at this link:  http://www.performancetrends.com/Circle_Track_Analyzer.htm#Version_3.5


4)  Christmas Is Coming  Many of our products make great Christmas gifts.  For computer programs, most all can be purchased by downloading demo versions from our website, and then calling with a credit card for an activation code.  This means you can order at the last minute, and still have a gift for that racer on your Christmas list.  Popular gift ideas include:

Compression Ratio Calculator v2.0 for $29.95 for Engine Builders
Engine Analyzer v3.2 for $109.95 for Engine Builders and All Racers
Fuel Injector Calculator v2.0 for $39.95 for Engine Builders and Tuners
