Eagle One Wheel & Tire Cleaner

Eagle One has brought its top-selling A2Z Wheel & Tire Cleaner to our attention. Its powerful 2-in-1 foam is said to easily remove brake dust, dirt, grime and grease, while the acid-free formula is "manufacturer recommended" for use on any wheel, hubcap or tire. It's claimed to be "Safe for all wheels," but check the label before using if you have wheels that are unfinished, anodized, etc. An added advantage of A2Z is that it has a "back to black" restoration for tires in its formulation, giving your rubber a deep shine while the wheels get a deep clean. A2Z can also be used as a pre-wash on the lower panels of the car, as well as the wheel wells to remove tough deposits some car soaps leave behind. It also works well as an engine degreaser, if you're so inclined. Obviously, we'd recommend you rinse your sponge between surfaces to avoid scratches.

Diesel System Cleaner

Penray has announced its Total Diesel Fuel System Cleaner, aimed at dissolving and preventing the formation of asphaltenes in diesel fuel, while cleaning other deposits and contaminants from your fuel system. The formulation is claimed to attack asphaltenes, dissolving and removing them them from fuel tank, filter, injectors and lines. It should also prevent any recurrence. The benefits include extended life of the fuel filter, injectors and other precision components. This should reduce maintenance costs and improve fuel economy.

Champion Sprint Wax

While Champion's Sprint Wax is formulated to clean, shine and protect, its low-drag coefficient is claimed to lend itself to racing and performance applications, whether they have gloss- or matte-painted surfaces. Sprint Wax will clean and shines glass, chrome, paint, plastic, tires and vinyl, while leaving a high-gloss, low-drag shine. The makers claim it can be used in direct sunlight without pre-washing, and will create a barrier that sheds dirt, rubber and other debris, thereby making your next clean-up even easier.

Mothers Synthetic Paste Wax

Mothers has released its new California Gold Synthetic Paste Wax to protect your vehicle from damaging UV rays, environmental contaminates like acid rain, and pesky bird droppings. Designed to protect painted surfaces with a clear, hard, shiny coating, the synthetic paste comes in a can or spray bottle and is both easy to apply, and effortless to remove. They even say it will work under the hot sun (although that's never the best time to clean a car...) Its synthetic formula features ultra-fine polishes to bring out the gloss and luster of your paint, while the specially formulated micro-encapsulation polymers form a chemical bond to both preserve and protect.

Meguiar's Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner

The advanced formula is said to be easy to use and will quickly remove common stains like coffee, grease, ketchup and lipstick from cloth upholstery. Its fast-acting foam penetration ensures stain-fighting qualities that can treat the affected area before the stain sets in. Whether it's a ketchup stain or giant soda spill, Meguiar's Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner can erase traces of a messy drive-thru experience with its dual-mode trigger. The trigger allows both spot cleaning with a narrow stream or general cleaning with a wider mist spray. Featuring a fast-drying solution, it's a great multi-tasking tool for interior maintenance.

Dreadnought PRO

Developed by Fortune Auto in conjunction with Muller Suspension Components, the Dreadnought PRO dampers have been the foundation of race-winning suspension. The dampers absorb low-speed force to control driver inputs, dive, pitch and roll. Yet the dampers use an internal "blow off" effect to ensure the force tapers off to keep the vehicle stable after hitting curbs or road imperfections at high speed. Offering top-tier race technology and durable, race proven parts, the Dreadnought PRO damper systems are claimed to be the ultimate in performance and adjustability. They can be bought as two- or three-way adjustable units and feature stronger shafts, new mounts, bright-dip anodizing and Swift springs. All systems are built and dyno-tested in-house by the engineering staff in Richmond, VA. They can also be fully rebuilt to any spec and supplied with a number of accessories.

DeatschWerks fuel pump

The DW65v is an in-tank pump available from DeatschWerks for VW/Audi 1.8T models. It's the company's first application-specific pump for the European market and was designed to fit like stock but with increased fuel flow to support the power a modified 1.8T is capable of producing. Like other DeatschWerks DW65-series pumps, this "v" version flows 265 lph, which should support up to 500hp. It has the same pickup points as the factory pump, and maintains the bucket's fuel level to avoid fuel starvation at low fuel levels or during high-speed cornering.

Braven BRV-X outdoor speaker

We've sampled some Braven products in the past but were interested to try the new BRV-X from its Ultra Rugged Series. Designed for sports and outdoor enthusiasts, it combines the latest audio technology with the ability to withstand drops, bumps and moisture. The BRV-X has custom HD drivers, an omni-directional passive bass radiator as well as an indoor/outdoor switch to adjust the audio output to its surroundings, maximizing sound quality and volume. There's also a screw-on plastic cover on the rear for the electrical connections, to keep everything dry if the unit should get wet. You can connect to your device using either Bluetooth streaming, NFC or an aux cable. With a battery charge indicator, it can play for up to 12 hours and will even charge a USB device from the port on the back. If that's not enough, you can pair two of these speakers for a stereo effect or use it for handsfree phone calls.

With its grippy feet and hardcore exterior, the Braven BRV-X feels substantial and operation is very straightforward, with bluetooth pairing taking seconds. The sound is good, particularly on hiphop tracks where it gives good bass and treble reproduction. The volume level is high, allowing it to entertain at a BBQ or gathering without any problems. We didn't detect any distortion either, reproducing the sound with clarity. It's another recommended purchase if you're in the market for a Bluetooth speaker.
