Drag racing’s high-performance manufacturers didn’t let a challenging year stop them from rolling out dozens of new products
No one could have predicted the way the world changed this spring, which made the already hard process of releasing a new product even more challenging. Some racers left their cars on jack stands this season, or simply chose to make it through the season without upgrades. Others went all-in on long-needed updates and upgrades, flooding manufacturers with new orders.
For the fifth year in a row, DRAG ILLUSTRATED reached out to dozens of industry-leading manufacturers, mom-and-pop operations, mega parts distributors and service providers to lend a hand in showing off their latest and greatest offerings to the drag racing community. Not surprisingly, the overwhelmingly innovative minds that occupy the drag arcing industry delivered in spades with bad ass gadgets, machinery, electronics, parts, pieces and more. More than one of these items already made it onto our collective offseason shopping list, and we can’t imagine you won’t be saying the same soon.
Remember, most of these companies are offering holiday pricing, so be sure to ask and also be sure to tell ’em DRAG ILLUSTRATED sent you.
The resulting Buyer’s Guide is intended to help readers narrow down their search for the next addition to their project.

Line2Line Coatings’ Abradable Powder CoatingsTM (APCTM) improve the performance of pistons, pumps, turbochargers and superchargers. These self-fitting graphite coatings safely reduce operating clearances and friction. The coating can be applied thick so that during the initial operation the coated component wears in until its ideal geometry is reached under temperature and load. Pistons with APC coatings lap in to permanently improve piston-to-bore fit for better ring seal and decreased secondary motion and noise due to a stabilized oil film. Turbos and superchargers can be assembled with a “zero clearance-zero friction” fit for better sealing and greater efficiency. Oil pumps display increased pressure and flow at idle and low RPM even with hot, thin oil. For race, restoration, production and product development applications, Abradable Powder Coatings provide the perfect fit every time.
Photo: Littlefield Blowers_Lapping Plate
Don’t compromise a fresh blower by mounting it on an uneven surface. 18-by-11-inch manifold lapping plates and replacement self-adhesive 50-grit sandpaper sheets are available at Littlefield Blowers. When a blower that turns fine on the workbench no longer wants to spin over after bolting it atop the manifold, it is a sign that the top surface of the manifold is not flat once it is bolted to the top of the engine. Removing the studs, placing rags in the plenum for debris, and sanding with a lapping plate to a flat finish will cure this problem. For only $159 and $15 per extra sandpaper sheet, a lapping plate is a must-have item for the shop of anyone who races with a blown configuration.

It is also less prone to vibration. The CV driveshaft assembly is designed to work in conjunction with a “shorty” Powerglide transmission (with 27- or 32-spline output shaft) and features a CNC-machined billet aluminum tail housing, special CV joints that have been micro-polished to reduce friction and improve surface strength. The shaft is manufactured of high-strength 300M steel and a pinion yoke is also included. It’s perfect for high-horsepower cars like Top Dragsters, and an effective preventative for potential driveline failures.
McLeod Racing, a premier distributor of TREMEC, welcomes the new Magnum-F 6-Speed transmission. The new 6-Speed is designed to replace the T-56 transmissions in 1998-2002 GM F-bodies. The Magnum-F fills a longstanding void in the overall Magnum line with regard to shifter locations; addressing not only LS1-powered ’98-02 F-bodies, but several other applications that utilize a similar shifter position. Where the original Magnum shifter locations may prove too far forward and the extended length Magnum XL’s too far back, the Magnum-F’s in-between position often proves to be just right. The Magnum-F leverages TREMEC’s pervasive TR-6060/Magnum architecture in order to provide fourth-gen enthusiasts significantly improved performance and relief from a shrinking pool of T-56 replacement parts. It increased face width on all gears, a robust combination of double and triple cone synchronizers, enhanced webbing in the main case, provisions for a cooler circuit and upgraded the shifter to an isolator type unit.

RH 2-Way’s Nitro Helmet Speakers are the ultimate hearing tool with 125% more volume than any inner piece. They block 34-36db of outside noise, 25% more than custom ear molds. They can be retro-fitted to most quality helmets. In more than 20 years of involvement in the sport, we have yet to find a driver who liked to put anything in his ear to hear the crew. We have tested these speakers in the loudest settings we could find – Top Fuel dragsters, World of Outlaws, PDRA and Whelen Tour Modifieds. All these cars have headers dumping 150+ DB of damaging noise straight for the driver’s head. These speakers can be installed by the racer. However, for no additional charge, our certified helmet technicians will tackle this task for you. Imagine, instead of losing a pair of ear buds each week, you never have to replace the speakers. Simply send us your old helmet and new one and we’ll transfer them for $40. This is to cover the labor only.

THE BLOWER SHOP
Photo: Blowershop image
This is the first-ever supercharger that we’ve tailored directly for EFI. Traditionally, you would run EFI with an injector plate on top of the supercharger. Where this works, we have found increased performance by bringing the fuel injectors down into the side of the blower case. Air flows better and easier when it is dry. By injecting fuel mid-way in the case, it allows dry air to more efficiently fill the rotor cavity at a higher velocity. This increase in air velocity equates to more volume, which ultimately means more boost. We are also taking advantage of the cooling effects of the fuel. The blower needs the fuel to help cool and lubricate the rotors. This new location injects the fuel right where the blower is starting to heat the air. After being subjected to Drag Week in 2019, we’ve seen that this increased volume with a cooler air charge is a “win-win” situation in the blower world resulting in a more efficient supercharger.

The Track Meter is a simple to use tool that when used correctly provides consistently accurate measurements of the racetrack’s surface. By standing on the Track Meter’s machined aluminum foot tabs, an internal spring applies a determined amount of pressure to the Track Meter’s bottom rubber pad. This rubber pad has a durometer hardness similar to most drag racing tires. The user then turns the Track Meter’s included torque wrench attachment to a specified number of degrees. It’s recommended to measure several key spots along the track’s surface. The Track Meter includes simple to use Data Tracking software to store your measurements and aid in track surface analytics. You’ll be able to store traction measurements at key points of the racetrack’s surface, along with current air temperature, time of day and lane side. These measurement data points can be collected and stored for multiple runs during qualifying and eliminations. Data Tracking software allows you to build a library of data for multiple racetracks over multiple runs for years of comparison data to aid in car set-up and tune.
