KLUHSMAN RACING NEWS

 

KRC Patch Logo Greetings from KRC!    

 

Thanks to all of you for the positive feedback on last month's inaugural newsletter. We hope that this issue will provide even more insight into Kluhsman Racing Components. As the calendar flips over to May, that means that the racing season is now officially in high gear. May is a busy time for all of us here at Kluhsman Racing Components. From NASCAR, to Karting, to the NHRA and to the dirt tracks, we've got you covered in May. We believe strongly in spending as much time at the track as we can, not only to offer assistance but to get your feedback and ideas on current KRC products as well as to gather ideas for new products. Stop and introduce yourself if you see us. If you have any questions about KRC's products or distributors please visit us on the web at www.krcracing.com or call (417) 232-4948. You can also reach us by email at krctracks@aol.com.

 

See You at the Races!

KRC-8240 Pit SocketNASCAR PIT SOCKET

The KRC-8240 NASCAR Pit Socket has become one of the hottest new products on pit road.

  • Coated with the same SUPER SLICK coating as our wheel studs.

  • Less vibration than any other socket in the industry today because of its balance and tightened mandrel specifications.
  • Used by many of the front and rear tire changers in THE NASCAR SPRINT CUP SERIES, NASCAR NATIONWIDE SERIES, and in the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN TRUCK SERIES.
  • Sockets are balanced and run out less than .003!
  • They are heat treated and have a spring included for rapid ejection of the NASCAR lug nut.

These sockets work in harmony with KRC's Wheel Studs and Lug Nuts for perfect pitstops every time.

 

KRC Fuel Filter BracketsKRC FUEL FILTER BRACKETS

KRC has recently added a 1 1/4" round fuel filter bracket to its lineup that already boasts 5 additional sizes.

  • Made from Billet Aircraft Aluminum

  • Provides vibration proof mounting of Fuel Filter to car frame. 
  • A must when using one of our fuel filter or overflow canisters.

This new part (KRC-4125) easily clamps onto 1 1/4" Round tube, KRC also offers brackets to fit 1 3/8" Round, 1 1/2" Round, 1 3/4" Round, and 2" Square Tube. We also carry a bracket for use with our Go-Kart catch can kit that works with 3/4" tube.

 

 

KRC Sprocket Alignment LaserSPROCKET ALIGNMENT LASER

 

This Kart Sprocket Alignment Laser tool originally designed by KRC works well on any 35 or 520 chain sprockets. This handy sprocket alignment tool makes it easy to line up your sprocket and clutch. Alignment can be done with the chain on both sprockets. This item ships with replacement batteries. 

 

 

 

IMCA LogoKRC ALIGNS WITH IMCA

Kluhsman Racing Components has signed on for their 12th consecutive year to sponsor the International Motor Contest Association. The IMCA, organized in 1915, is the oldest active automobile racing sanctioning body in the United States. The IMCA has a mission to provide affordable, entertaining and competitive auto racing as a sanctioning body. They are committed to establishing and enforcing fair and consistent rules that will strengthen and promote the racing industry. Continuing with the SportMod required decal program, KRC remains active in eight IMCA divisions this season.

 

 

 

AMRA LogoKRC RENEWS AMRA SPONSORSHIP

Kluhsman Racing Components is very involved at the upper levels of NASCAR racing but we also very proud to support the grass roots racing series such as The American Motor Racing Association. The AMRA is a National Sanctioning Body based in Mt. Alto, West Virginia, which sanctions Open Wheel Modified auto racing in the US. AMRA race tracks are primarily dirt and range in size from 1/4 to 5/8 mile. For the National Series and the Road Warrior Tour, KRC will provide $300 worth of products to be given away, by luck of the draw, to any eligible drivers attending the AMRA Banquet. Drivers must run Kluhsman Racing Components decals during the 2008 season to be eligible.
