- Product From ConMet (Consolidated Metco)
ConMet's TruTurn brake drums are constructed using a unique "turned-to-balance" machining process, which improves strength by eliminating the need for weld-on weights and balance cuts. TruTurn drums are stronger and offer other advantages such as better thermal expansion for reduced brake pulsing, and improved heat transfer, so the drum and its lining stay cool. Braking force is more evenly distributed, and vibration and brake "judder" are minimized. Test after test, in the lab and on the highway, TruTurn brake drums beat the competition, according to the company. They surpass the accepted standards of the performance drag, stopping distance and durability tests.

- Product From RTI, a division of Mahle Clevite
RTI's VFT-1 (Vehicle Fluid Tester), a digital refractometer, can test the freezing point of glycol based coolants. By adding a few drops of coolant to the test surface and pressing the "Go" button a couple seconds later the VFT-1 gives a digital readout of the freezing point. A chart typically located on a coolant bottle's rear label, illustrates that the lower a freeze point of coolant, the higher the boiling point of the engine coolant. Additionally, the VFT-1 can also test for percent of water present in DOT 3 brake fluid, battery acids specific gravity and DEF Urea percent weight in diesel exhaust fluid.
