Systems. That is how a racecar makes it to the top of the podium. DiscoveryParts GT2 Datsun 240Z won the NASA-SE Enduro Championship 2 years in a row. Let's take a look at just the brake system.

Top Upgrades for Corvette C4 through C7. Is your Corvette going to the next level of performance driving? See our top sellers for your first track day to the highest levels of pro racing. The Chevrolet Corvette was first born in Flint Michigan on June 30 1953 to be the New York Auto Show show car. Given the model name C1, the Corvette's history was started. Now in GM's seventh generation (C7), GM's Supercar has been a part of American History. GM even made a custom version that was gifted to Astronaut Alan Shepard. That started a program that supplied 2 brand new GM cars to every US astronaut. The usual protocol was a family car for the wives, but every Astronaut ALWAYS chose the Corvette. Great job GM on not just an incredible car but a part of American history.

Honda built the legacy of the S2000 from its deep roots and heritage of their S500, S600, and S800 roadsters from the 1960s. The S2000 ran a successful 10 years from 1999 through 2009 with many versions for every driver. There were very few (fewer than 700) 2008 Honda Club Racer factory cars but the aftermarket and tuner/racer world has exceeded what the manufacturer offered. The Honda S2000 is a great platform and you can see them on track every weekend hitting their 9000+ rpm redline.
Spec Miata Racing. Some of the racers you see on tv now are past winners in Spec Miata. The Mazda Miata platform is one that still surprises racers to this day. Mazda knew they had something special in 1990, but never thought it would lead to the highest car counts in national level amateur racing. That success has led the Miata to be a common front runner in Lemons & Chump endurance series also. Below are some of the top build parts.
Race cars use race gas instead of 87 octane pump gas. Likewise, your race car should have a legitimate race battery instead of a standard street car battery so it can endure the harsh conditions you put it through on track. Stiff springs, thick sway bars, and solid bushings all work towards ending a battery sooner every lap. A battery designed for racing will have the extra features to overcome harmonics, sharp impacts, and the demand of a relocated battery using extra cable length and a high compression engine. That big camshaft sounds great but with the timing advanced as far as you can go, the cranking load can be extreme. Choose a racecar battery that matches not only your needs but budget.

A Harness is one of the most important pieces of Safety Equipment in a race car. Its job is to dissipate energy. In the event of a crash, a harness prevents the mass of the body from moving within the car and transfers the movement of your body to the chassis of the car. Because of the amount of force involved in a racing collision, it is very important to have the right equipment to protect against injury and that it is installed and used correctly. We offer a vast selection of auto racing harnesses from G-Force, OMP, Schroth, Simpson, Sparco, and Takata. If you need help determining your harness needs, give the professionals at DiscoveryParts a call on our tech line at 706-344-1235.

The return system is usually matched for hose size and for simplicity, the same fittings when possible.
