Brake Fluid Enhancer Improves Vehicle Safety by Fighting Corrosion


Phoenix Systems releases BrakeShot to revitalize and enhance brake fluid to a higher level of quality and safety.
St. George, UT - August 20, 2014 - Phoenix Systems introduces BrakeShot, the new brake fluid enhancer designed to fight corrosion that is caused by the harmful effects of copper. This liquid brake fluid enhancer instantly combats copper corrosion by restoring and strengthening old brake fluid. BrakeShot helps protect the vehicle's brake system by transforming average brake fluid into a high-tech, high-grade brake fluid, thus prolonging the life of your vehicle's brake fluid and entire brake system. BrakeShot uses DOT guidelines and is specifically formulated to slow down copper corrosion in the braking system. BrakeShot prevents sticking calipers, ailing master cylinders, and other ABS braking troubles that are brought on by corrosion and high copper levels. This extra layer of protection ensures your safety and gives your vehicle an immunity-boost against copper corrosion.
Phoenix Systems is the industry authority on brake fluid testing and brake safety with multiple patents on their innovative products. In 2000, BrakeStrip, a 60-second brake fluid test, was introduced and currently dealerships use this test to evaluate the copper corrosion levels in the brake fluid. Consumers can easily have this test completed to determine if their system is contaminated and in need of BrakeShot or a complete system flush.
With multiple patents pending, a one-ounce shot of BrakeShot treats up to 1 liter of brake fluid, which is the average capacity of a vehicle’s braking system. Cheaper and quicker than a brake flush, BrakeShot is universal and works on all foreign and domestic vehicles. BrakeShot was released on August 1, 2014.

Sway-A-Way Introduces Baja Blood™ Shock Oil


Shock absorber performance is greatly influenced by the temperature, viscosity and stability of its hydraulic fluid. Accordingly, the suspension experts at Sway-A-Way have developed Baja Blood™—a synthetic shock oil that has improved lubricity and less friction than conventional lubricants to optimize performance and durability. Baja Blood™ is formulated to withstand the most severe off-road racing environments. It has excellent thermodynamic qualities and runs cooler than conventional oils of a similar viscosity. Another important benefit of this true synthetic is resistance to foaming, a common problem of conventional oils. It also helps prolong seal life. Proven in competition, Baja Blood™ has demonstrated a superior service life (less fade) in comparison to conventional shock oils. It is employed in all of Sway-A-Way’s racing shocks, and can be used to give a “performance transfusion” to most any brand shock absorber. Rated at “7 weight” viscosity for optimum all-around use, Baja Blood™ is available in quart bottles, gallon jugs and 5-gallon buckets. For additional details go to www.swayaway.com or call 818-700-9712. Sway-A-Way has been a leader in off-road suspension technology since 1967 and headquartered in Chatsworth, California.
