Cool Cooler Clamps

There’s a better way to hang your transmission cooler, and Earl’s Performance Plumbing has it. This trio of stylish oil cooler clamps is the newest addition to the Earl’s line and they fit all Earl’s oil cooler heights. The anodized aluminum mounting system is made with E-coated steel hardware and rubber isolators to rigidly mount Earl’s coolers. The rubber isolators keep vibration from reaching the cooler for longer life, and they also allow for less-than-perfect installation situations while maintaining a firm grip.

Is Your Ride Star-Worthy?

The Startech wheel is a new wheel from the Dicer Series by Centerline Wheels. These wheels are SFI 15.1–approved for professional drag racing, and Centerline designed them particularly for race cars, muscle cars, and street machines. The Startech comes in a 15-inch diameter with various widths, bolts patterns, and offsets available.

The Startech is a 100-percent-forged aluminum wheel, which Centerline claims is half the weight of a cast aluminum wheel, and it’s made stateside in Santa Fe Springs, California. Center caps are included and prices start at just $148 each for a 15x4 wheel (Dicer Series).
