To enhance your safety, Watson's just made their popular pedestal 3rd brake light 15% better.  Now using a clear lens with diffuser in this well designed and great looking billet pedestal LED 3rd brake light with turn signals, your safety factor goes up because the red LED's appear even brighter when you step on the brake and  when you signal. The original version with red lens was voted as Best New Safety Product Runner Up at the NSRA Street Rod Nationals. This handsome  product has an aluminum swivel base and housing,  comes with 60 super bright LED’s that are split into 3 groups of 15-30-15 and is just the fix for that safety issue .  If you don’t want the turn signal function you can use it as a 3rd brake light only. Overall dimensions are 16-5/8” W x 3/4” H x 1-1/8” D and it stands only 2” tall including the swivel base.  Also available in a smaller version.

Champion Brands Classic Blue Flame Diesel Oil Increases Horse Power and Torque

in What's HOT: Products
Champion Brands LLC (Clinton, MO) is rolling out a new diesel engine oil specifically designed to meet the demands of diesel competition builders and enthusiasts of turbo and super-charged pre-2007 MY diesel engines.

Champion Brands Classic Blue Flame is a unique hybrid synthetic blend 15W-40 diesel engine oil that combines workhorse high-zinc performance additives, superior protection, advanced polymer technology, and high TBN supported by a carrier blend of synthetic and conventional base fluids. Why offer such a product? 2007 marked a significant change ushering in an emission reduction mandate imposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Many fundamental engine oil protection additives could no longer be used in engines fitted with diesel particulate filtration (DPF) devices. It became clear that engine oil’s ash, sulfur and phosphorous content, and other additives were targeted for substantial reduction to meet new requirements.

These new engine oils were designated API service category CJ-4 to meet the normal driving conditions in post 2007 MY diesel engines. However, today’s diesel enthusiasts who do not have a DPF mounted on board gave out loud cry for better protection and increased performance beyond that of conventional CJ-4 lubricant. Champion Brands’ Classic Blue Flame raises the bar of performance beyond API CJ-4, or any previous conventional API service category. Performance diesel owners have reported increased cylinder, cam, and bearing wear in their early model engines, especially in competition diesel engines.. Development included attention to concentration and synergistic behavior of anti-wear and detergent additives for more robust protection at high temperature and heavy load. Champion Brands Classic Blue Flame also utilizes TVS® (Thermal Viscosity Stabilizer) polymer chemistry, borrowed from CHAMPION RACING OIL technology, and a dynamic backbone of enhanced shear stability and viscosity control.

In addition, Champion Brands Classic Blue Flame Diesel Engine Oil delivers unmatched high temperature film strength and lubricity protection, has the muscle to combat oil shear, maximizes and sustains cylinder compression, and is proven to increase engine horse power and torque. Champion Brands Classic Blue Flame 15W-40 is purpose built for extreme protection and performance. Available now in quart and gallon packages .

About the company: Champion Brands, LLC, is a globally recognized industry leader in specialty lubricants for over 55 years. Champion Brands, LLC also produces and blends over 300 products including fuel, oil, engine additives, and lubricants for the automotive, heavy truck, agricultural, industrial, and specialty markets. For more information about Champion Brands Classic Blue Flame Diesel Engine Oil contact your nearest Champion distributor.
