RACING, towing, and other extreme use is murder on engine oil and transmission fluid. The hotter these fluids get, the less heat and wear protection they provide to critical engine and transmission components. Flex-A-Lite engine and transmission coolers are far more efficient than factory coolers. The all-aluminium coolers are lightweight, strong and can be teamed with an optional single or dual electric fan. Contact Summit Racing Equipment on 1800 230 3030 or visit summitracing.com.

It is specifically formulated as a pre-paint treatment for steel, galvanised steel and aluminium, and is easily applied by aerosol, spray gun or brush. Once dry, it protects the surface from rust, fingerprints and other minor blemishes.
