In this economy, if you’re not constantly on the lookout for bargains and sale items, you probably have family money or you’re working three jobs. Here at CV Products, we understand the virtue of thrift, which is why we go to all the trouble to find popular items that we can mark down and offer up — to you!
Below are a half-dozen high-performance auto racing products that we think you might want to slap onto your own racecar this season. Be sure to note that the sale runs from now through Friday, March 15, for much of this gear, and through Friday, March 22, for the rest.
Bassett 15X10 Wide 5 Wheels
Our Bassett 15×10 Wide 5 wheel (black) and Bassett 15×10 Ultra Light Wide 5 wheel (black), each normally priced at around $100, are available through March 15 for $88.95 for the lightweight version and $86.95 for the black. The CV product numbers for these wheels are BAS50SR5 and BAS50SR5-LW, and you can view them online at in the Bassett section of our website. Go ahead and purchase four or more of these wheels and we’ll toss in the valve stems!
- Bassett 15×10 Wide 5 wheels offer three advantages over other wheels: a spun-form rim shell that features low runout; a proprietary welding technique that increases strength; and low unsprung weights of under 18 pounds. In addition, Bassett wheels feature Armor Edge — a reinforced, rolled-over bead flange lip that doubles the thickness and creates a strong crush zone.
- Bassett’s Ultra Light Wide 5 wheel is the lightest 15×10 Wide 5 wheel in the industry, weighing in at only 15.75 pounds! What does this offer the owner of a late-model stock racecar? An immediate bolt-on performance advantage by lowering the moment of inertia, which boosts horsepower and improves handling. Bassett’s unique wave pattern welding technique and special HSLA steel for a flatter, stronger ring center means these wheels last three times as long as any other wide-five on the market — even those weighting five pounds more! Plus, a patented cornering fatigue testing lets Bassett’s engineers know their latest designs will work before the wheel hits the track.
SCS Quick Change Sportsman Series Gears
What we offer here is a call-in special only — not available online — on our quality SCS Quick Change Sportsman Series gears. Normally priced at $87.85 each, we’re selling them for $85 each through March 22. These gears are CNC-crown hobbed, which means they meet the stringent standards accepted by SCS.
Made of 8620 material, these gears are heat treated with an REM finish. And while less expensive that SCS’s professional series, they’re engineered the same way with the same gear ratios available. In addition, the SCS gear-ratio card also works for both series.
To take advantage of this sale on SCS Quick Change Sportsman Series gears, call us at 800-448-1223. And if you purchase a set of these gears, we’ll give you a quart of Lucas Heavy Duty Gear Oil SAE 80W-90 or SAE85W-140.
SCS Quick Change Professional Series Gears
Manufactured for the professional, we’ve reduced the price on these Lightweight 2000 Series gears from $192 to $189 each — again through Friday, March 22. With an average weight savings of a pound and a half, these quick-change gears are designed to be lighter without sacrificing one single ounce of strength!
What accounts for much of this strength is the fact these gears are built of 9310 aircraft alloy. Each gear is crown shaved — which means they are ground before receiving heat treatment — a step that minimizes backlash and run out. They are also broached for proper 10-spine shaft fit and receive a black oxide finish. The SCS “extra five-step” heat-treating process yields maximum gear life for high-stress applications such as those experienced by Big Block Oswego super modifieds, World of Outlaw sprint cars and IROC Series cars.
Just like the SCS Sportsman Series gears, the professional gears are available only by phone. In fact if you call us at 800-448-1223 by the March 22 deadline, we’ll give you a quart of Lucas Pure Synthetic gear oil (SAE 75W-90 or SAE 75W-140) and a gear tote (HOW32386) with each set of gears purchased.
Quarter Master 5.5 V Drive Clutch (for 1985 and older motors)
If it’s a race clutch that offers the best balance of performance, durability and affordability for the money that you seek, we’ve got a pair of V-Drive series clutches from Quarter Master that offer an open design the provides cleaner and cooler operation. The two-disc V-Drive Quarter Master Clutch (QM28517090) and three-disc V-Drive Quarter Master Clutch (QM38517090) clutches can significantly reduce the moment of inertia for lightweight power transfer.
From now through March 22, we’re offering the two-disc clutch for $559 — way down from the old price of $619.99. And you can pick up a three-disc clutch for $658 — considerably less than the original $698.99 price tag.
What sets these clutches apart from the others is top-quality internal friction material for high-torque capacity that ensures reliability in the harshest racing conditions. Tie that in with the lighter weight of the clutch, and you get nothing but superior race performance. The eight-leg open cover design offers strength and effective heat dissipation, which of course is perfect for sportsman circle track, road course and off-road racers.
CV Products is also offering similar savings on clutches for 1986 and newer motors. Just call us at 800-448-1223 and ask about our deals on Quarter Master clutches for 1986 and newer motors.
