1)  Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Trade Show, Dec 10-12  We'll be at the PRI trade show in Orlando, Florida's Orange County Convention Center this December.  Orlando has Universal Studio and Disney World , and is a great place to bring the family in the middle of winter.

This is the only trade show we attend because it's the biggest and best. We'll be in booth 5578. Stop by and see what new things we have for 2009.  You must make reservations to attend, so call PRI at 949-499-5413 in California to make them, or click on link below:


Our office will be open the week of Dec 7-11, but with a limited staff.  We may not be able to ship all orders until the week of Dec 14th.  


2)     Christmas Shopping   It's not to early to think of putting a racing or engine building tool on your Christmas List.  From the Compression Ratio Calculator at $39.95 (shown below) to the full Cam Test Stand at $2199, we have a gift for all budgets.   If you're not sure what to get, just get a gift certificate.



For computer programs, most all can be purchased On Line or by calling in your order.  Either way, we will give you an activation code to unlock the demo version of the program you can download from our website.  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:
