Falcon F7 on Display in the Bar’s Products Booth at AAPEX

Coming Soon

This year in our AAPEX booth (#4416), we’re featuring a beastly Michigan-made horizontal rollercoaster known as the Falcon F7. Its looks are one thing — they stop people dead in their tracks. But the Falcon’s specs are what really raise eyebrows:

  • Body: paint-finished carbon fiber
  • Engine: LS7 Corvette engine — 7.0L, 427 c.i. supercharged V8, 620 HP, 585 lb/ft torque @ 5400 rpm
  • 0-60: Approx 3.3-3.6 seconds
  • Top Speed: Approx. 190-200 MPH
  • 1/4 Mile: 10.9 seconds
  • Lateral Acceleration: 1.1-1.3g maximum
  • 60-0 Braking: Under 100 ft.

The people behind Falcon are as passionate about building a real-world supercar as we are making automotive chemicals that rise above the rest and work as promised. So far, this car is the star of the show. If you’re at AAPEX in Vegas, be sure to come by and see this monster in person in booth #4416.

Testimonial: “Many thanks for creating something that actually works.”

Coming Soon

Fred V. from Edmonton, Alberta CA wrote us over the weekend. This is what he said:

4701-website-PNGWe have a 2001 Chrysler 300m and the fuel pump gauge started to ping and drop to empty and then back up again. It did this for approx. the first 1/4 tank after filling. I found out that the fuel pump had a sensor that registers the amount of fuel in the tank and this cannot be replaced by itself….the whole pump has to be replace at a cost of around $600. (the gas tank has to be dropped).

I tried several fuel conditioners and they did not work. Then I ran into yours and noticed that the label did say that it cleans fuel pumps. So I thought I would try it and after 8000 kms from using the first bottle (as per the instructions on the bottle) and using the 2nd, the condition disappeared and it’s been good since. So many thanks for creating something that actually works. But then, you folks have been at it for a long time. — Fred

First of all, thanks for taking the time to write, Fred. We love hearing stories like this.

Second, the product Fred is talking about is our Rislone Fuel Injector Cleaner with UCL. It saved Fred $600, and it can help your car whether your facing an expensive repair or not. We’ve gotten calls from car clubs and racing enthusiasts about this product, so we’re pretty thrilled it’s being noticed for standing out above the others.

Thanks again for contacting us,  Fred.

New Rislone

Coming Soon

Holly, Mich. (July 25, 2012) — Rislone® Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment (ZDDP) is now super-concentrated. The cost-effective new 11 oz. bottle contains the same amount of engine-protecting ZDDP (zinc dialkyldithiophosphate) as the former 32 oz. package.

4405 Rislone 3X ZDDPEngine oil has changed drastically over the last 30 years. While SF oil formerly had nominal values of zinc and phosphorous in the 1,500 to 1,600 ppm range, today’s SN oil has nominal zinc and phosphorous values of just 600 to 700 ppm. These levels are fine for modern car engines that have been designed with rollers or anti-friction coatings to prevent wear, but they are not sufficient to protect the camshafts, valvetrains and engines of vehicles built prior to 1996 or race cars with engines that have higher spring valve pressures or are not driven daily. These vehicles need the added protection of ZDDP. Adding Rislone 3X Concentrated ZDDP Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment to regular SN rated motor oil will boost the oil’s zinc and phosphorus levels to between 1,600 and 1,800 ppm.

content_4405_rislone_3x_zddp“Even after all these years, ZDDP is still one of the best additives to inhibit rust and prevent wear and oxidation,� says Clay Parks, Rislone vice president of development. “History has shown that reducing the ZDDP package in motor oil has resulted in higher rates of premature failure of flat tappet camshafts and other internal engine parts in vehicles built before 1996. In many cases, the damage occurs over months or years because the ZDDP provides a sacrificial layer that gets consumed as miles accumulate on the engine. The product in our Rislone bottles is our own proprietary formulation developed using our 90 years of real-world experience in protecting engines. It turns regular motor oil into a high-performance lubricant.�

Rislone 3X Concentrated ZDDP Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment can be used in gasoline and diesel engines, antique and classic cars, motorcycles, tractors, industrial and agricultural machinery, and all racing applications. It was designed for engines requiring SL/CI rated oil and older, including gasoline engines from 2004 and earlier, and diesel engines from 2006 and earlier. Rislone Engine Oil Supplement works with all petroleum-based motor oils, including conventional, high-mileage and synthetic formulas. For best protection, it should be added at every oil change.

Like all Rislone products, Rislone 3X Concentrated ZDDP Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment (p/n 4405) is made in the U.S.A. The label includes directions in both English and Spanish.
