  1. Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Trade Show Recap
  2. Christmas Is Coming
  3. Last October's Newsletter



1)  Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Trade Show, Dec 6-8  Boy, Orange County Convention Center is HUGE, and I'm sure everyone who attended did not get a chance to see every exhibitor.  Thanks to all who stopped by, and sorry we missed you if you didn't make it.

There continues to be lots of interest in the Cam Test Stand and Valve Spring Testers.  We had the Automatic Spring Tester cycling every minute or so, creating a little "high tech" noise to attract some attention.  When someone had a question about it, I would show them the results on the screen.  These would typically be repeating within 0.1 lbs at seated or open height.  Sometimes we had to test the spring a couple of times to get the numbers to change at all.  That's incredibly repeatable.  If you want the most accurate Valve Spring Tester available, Performance Trends has it.

Check out the "PRI 2007, 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/PRI07%20Latest%20News.pdf
