S-10 Six-Link V3.0
This new S-10 Six-Link has been revised several times to get to the stage it's at now. Over the past couple years, CanDo Specialties has listened to its customers and redesigned the kit-talk about a huge R&D department. Some of the new features on the kit are a new raised gas tank crossmember, including the upper four-link mounts, pre-TIG-welded on the crossmember. The upper four-link bar ends are angled, instead of the brackets, so they won't bind up from side to side. Also, the axle brackets are notched to allow more travel, and there's a new 'bag mount on top of the cantilever bars. All of the parts CanDo produces are machined or laser-cut, then TIG-welded.

Sticky Rubber
Toyo Tires announces the official release of the Proxes R888 R-compound DOT-approved competition tire. The Proxes R888 delivers outstanding grip for high-performance driving. The Proxes R888's tread design delivers a continuous center contact for excellent traction and directional control during dry braking. In semi-slick shoulder areas, the tires maintain large surface contact during cornering for an immediate steering response and ultimate dry traction. The combination of the two provides a large overall surface area for optimized contact-pressure distribution during cornering, braking, and acceleration. The Proxes R888 will be available in mainstream 17- to 19-inch sizes, beginning this summer. Several additional sizes will be released through spring of 2008.
