Author: Dick Miller Softbound 8.5 x 11 128 Pages 230 Color Photos ISBN: 9781934709351 While building big horsepower has becomre easier, putting that power to the pavement is still quite a challenge. Getting great "bite" involves a lot more than sticky tires and a smoky burnout. The suspension system is being put to work in a way it was never designed to operate. A better understanding of exactly what is happening to the suspension when the car launches fron a standing start will assist you in maximizing your car's effectivness on the street or at the track. In How to Hook and Launch: Traction Mods for the Street and Strip, author Dick Miller explains the physics behind what gets a car moving from a standing start, and how to best harness the various powers at work. Getting the rear tires to really bite and gain maximum traction is divided into several small steps, and Miller walks you through each phase of the launch. Today's enthusiasts face a wdie range of potential traction improvments, from softer tires and basic bolt-ons to complete or partial chassis replacements. Most opt for something in between, where some well-engineered componets are chosen to replace the factory equipment and offer a greater capability and range of adjustment. It is this range of upgrades where Miller spends most of his time, explaining what the parts and pieces do, and how to use them to their highest potential. Learn More

Book, Competition Engine Building Part # 88-1700-3
176 Pages 8.5' X 11" Soft Cover 321 Color Photos Excellent For Students And Pros Extensive Data, Charts And Engineering Information Covers The Complete Spectrum From Design To Assembly To Testing And Tuning Author John Baechtel The needs of a true competition engine are quite different than those of the engine under the hood of a typical commuter car. From the basic design needs, to the base component materials, to the sizes of the flow-related hardware, to the precision of the machining, to the capabilities of each pertinent system, very few similarities exist. Many books exist showcasing how to make street-based engines more powerful and/or durable. This book is different, in that it focuses purely on the needs of high rpm, high durability, high-powered racing engines. It begins by looking at the raw design needs, and then shares how these needs are met at the various phases of an engine's development, assembly, testing and tuning. This book features reviews of many popular modern tools, techniques, products, and testing/data collecting machinery. Showing the proper way to use such tools, how to accurately collect data, and how to use the data effectively when designing an engine, is critical information not readily available elsewhere. The special needs of a competition engine aren't commonly discussed, and the many secrets competition engine builders hold closely are openly shared on the pages here. Authored by veteran author John Baechtel, Competition Engine Building stands alone as a premier guide for enthusiasts and students of the racing engine. It also serves as a reference guide for experienced professionals anxious to learn the latest techniques or see how the newest tools are used. Baechtel is more than just an author, as he holds (or has held) several World Records at Bonneville. Additionally, his engines have won countless races in many disciplines, including road racing and drag racing Learn More

Muncie 4-Speed Transmissions - How To Rebuild And Modify - By Paul Cangialosi Part # 88-3795
Written By Muncie Transmission Expert Paul Cangialosi 144 Pages, 451 Color Photos And Charts Soft Bound, 8.5" x 11" The Muncie Is One Of The Most Popular GM 4-Speed Manual Trans. Ever Made Muncie 4-Speeds Were OEM In Camaro, Chevelle, Corvette, El Camino, Nova, Etc. Delivers Detailed Captions And Revealing Step-By-Step Photos Helps You Confidently Complete Your Muncie 4-Speed Rebuild Made In The USA ISBN 978-1-61325-106-5 The Muncie 4-speeds (M20, M21, and M22) are some of the most popular manual transmissions ever made and continue to be incredibly popular. The Muncie was the top high-performance manual transmission General Motors offered in its muscle cars of the 1960s and early 1970s. It was installed in the Camaro, Chevelle, Corvette, El Camino, Firebird, Nova and many other classic GM cars. Many owners want to retain the original transmission in their classic cars to maintain their value. Transmission expert and veteran author Paul Cangialosi has created an indispensable reference to Muncie 4-speeds that guides you through each crucial stage of the rebuild process. Comprehensive ID information is provided, so you can positively identify the cases, shafts, and related parts. It discusses available models, parts options, and gearbox cases. Most important, it shows how to completely disassemble the gearbox, identify wear and damage, select the best parts, and complete the rebuild. It also explains how to choose the ideal gear ratio for a particular application. Various high-performance and racing setups are also shown, including essential modifications, gun drilling the shafts, cutting down the gears to remove weight, and achieving race-specific clearances. Muncie 4-speeds need rebuilding after many miles of service and extreme use. In addition, when a muscle car owner builds a high-performance engine that far exceeds stock horsepower, a stronger high-performance transmission must be built to accommodate this torque and horsepower increase. No other book goes into this much detail on the identification of the Muncie 4-speed, available parts, selection of gear ratios, and the rebuild process. About The Author: Paul Cangialosi is the owner, proprietor, and top wrench at Medatronics Corporation and 5speeds.com in Tequesta, Florida. He first started working on cars at the age of 12 and his automotive passions have burned bright ever since. He has pursued his passion for manual transmissions for nearly 30 years. Today Cangialosi's businesses offer 12 different rebuild kits and 6 new transmissions as well as rebuilding, fabricating, and design services for high-performance manual transmissions. Learn More
