Engine Additives

Some things you just can't do without

Engine additives are an important item that many people think are just gimmicks, but are usually items that work very well.

These include items like Cooling System Improvers, Fuel Stabilisers, Octane Boosters to name but a few.

VP Cool Down Cooling System Additive  VP Cooldown Bottle

VP Cool Down Reduces cooling system operating temperatures by 20-50 degrees F.
Works great in race cars, their towing vehicles, and long idling applications. 1 bottle* per 2.5 gallons (9.46Litres) / 2 ounces per quart for motorcycles.
Reduces coolant surface tension, allows better laminar coolant flow for better heat transfer. Lubricates without the crystallisation of other coolant additives.

*1 bottle VP Cool Down treats 9.46Litres of radiator water.

VP Racing Fuels’ Cool Down is designed to compliment your ride’s coolant by reducing the surface tension of water by a factor of two, which translates to the formation of smaller vapour bubbles. Large vapour bubbles on the metal surface create an insulating layer, which impedes heat transfer.

This product also keeps the crucial water passages in the engine and cooling systems clean by preventing the build up of scale and corrosion by-products. This maximises heat transfer leading to lower operating temperatures and increased engine performance and efficiency.

Cool Down also helps to prevent coolant foaming at high temperatures and it ensures that water pump seals are cleaned and lubricated. Other benefits of Cool Down include reduction of high temperature cavitation corrosion and long term acid corrosion protection.

Most importantly, this product is Glycol-free, meaning that it’s safe to be put into most cooling systems that contain aluminum, cast iron, copper, brass or bronze materials. This product has been extensively tested and its performance proven under the harsh racing conditions.

The result? How about a cooling system that runs cooler by up to 10 degrees Celsius? That means more time on the track and less time in the pits waiting for your hot ride to cool down!

Fuel Additives

Absoloute Must Have Items for all Racers!

Fuel additives are an important item that many people think are just gimmicks, but are usually items that work very well.

Fuel Stabilisers, Octane Boosters and other additives that can make improvements in the efficiency of the combustion process.

These are not limited to Petrol Engines, but are also available for Diesel, Ethanol and Methanol fuels as well.

Alk y Racing Fuel LubeAlky Race Fuel Lube

No Methanol racer should be without this for the benefits of engine longevity and reduction in corrosion issues.

Use of this product enables fuel to be stored in the vehicle for longer time periods before requiring flushing.

This is also the only methanol additive that can be used with vehicles with Carburetor Slides without causing jamming throttle issues.

Each bottle of Fuel Lube treats 200 liters of methanol.

Manhattan Oils Top Lube

Manhattan Oil Upper Cylinder Lubricant

Specially formulated for methanol use, Manhattan Oil Top Lubes are recognized as the number one selling product in its category.

Customers enjoy reduced friction and better protection from corrosion associated with the use of methanol fuel. Many top engine builders, carburetor builders and injection system suppliers use and recommended these products.

A blue colorant is available to assist in identifying which fuel has Top Lube added.

The scented Top Lubes contain a low dose of fragrance and in order to get the full impact it is recommended that you use a bottle of Fuel Fragrance in combination with the Top Lube of your choice.

Each 473ml bottle of Top Lube treats 200 liters of methanol.

This is also suitable for use with E85 fuels for those wanting extra lubrication and an anti corrosion inhibitor

Alky Racing Fuel FlushAlky Race Fuel Flush

Fuel Flush absorbs residual methanol/nitro and leaves a lubricating film to protect against fuel gelling damage and corrosion.

For many years now we have all believed penetrating oil was the best lubricant to use after racing to protect and preserve alcohol fuel systems, with today’s technology you would never use a penetrating oil again. Penetrating oil of any kind is BAD NEWS in an alky motor.

Firstly if penetrating oil is sprayed in the cylinders it will break down any good lubrication you already have and allow fuels to attack the cylinder walls, secondly penetrating oil DOES NOT DISSOLVE IN METHANOL/NITRO!!!  it will separate and sit in your tank, fuel system or intake.

Race fuels are very corrosive when left to dry out in your fuel system and supercharger.

When you crank your engine for the first time there is no lubrication in the fuel system and supercharger, damage can be done at this point.

Use a lubricant that won’t affect your engine lubricant or gell in you tank

Alky Lubricants will flush out of your fuel system at startup

On start-up Fuel Flush will readily dissolve in methanol/nitro fuels and can be rinsed off hands or components with water as required.

Alky Race Pump Lube/ Fuel Flush

Pump Lube has been specially formulated for use in methanol/nitro fuel pumps and is a thick viscous fluid that adheres to fuel pump gears for better wear protection.

Pump Lube absorbs residual methanol/nitro and leaves a lubricating film to protect against pump gear galling and corrosion.

On start-up Pump Lube will readily dissolve in methanol/nitro fuels and can be rinsed off hands or components with water as required.

This can also be used as an alternative to the Alky Race Fuel Flush, as a more heavy duty version, more suitable for the supercharged vehicles.

Joe Gibbs Carb DefenderJoe Gibbs Driven Carb Defender
