New Products at NSRA Louisville

Every year the NSRA has a New Product Exhibit area and various show participants and exhibitors are asked to judge the new products.  This year we were honored to be among those Judges, but there were so many really great new ideas that it was more difficult than we had thought.   It turns out that one of our "picks"  was a winner but as far as we're concerned all of these innovative new products are  "Winners"  We're going to show you many of them here in this article just in case you missed them at the show or didn't get to attend the show.

And The Winners Are ...

In the "Under $100"  category the winner was the House of Kolor Software  "The Digital Paint Booth" which  allows you to see how your car will look with different paint jobs…. This could save a lot of grief ! 

In the $101--$500 Category the E.C.I. Brake Pressure Multiplier was the winner. This ingenious pressurization system increases brake line pressure 50%-60% with minimal additional pedal travel with a simple in-line installation.  This system provides maximum pressure levels unobtainable with a comparable bore size Street Rod power boosted system.  This Product also won the NSRA Safety Award.

In the  "Over $500" Category the winner was the Cen-Pen Speed Shop invention using an Air Ride Technologies airbag system for adding Air Ride Suspension to Straight Axle Vehicles.  This was getting a lot of attention in the exhibit area. 

AirRide Technologies also had their new Ride Pro System which allows you to control your air ride system using remote controls.

Alumicraft had a really nice new grill for '37 Ford Trucks.

Bad Dog Batteries makes these small size batteries which are much easier to fit into those small places.

American Autowire had this new kit  out.

One of the Billet Specialties entries was this new Dash Insert. These were really very classy. 

Bob Drake had several entries including these new Stainless Steel  Safety Hood Catches for 40 Fords.

Also from Billet Specialties was their new Tru Trac line..  They had several engines on display with these systems and they were just outstanding.
