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. Castrol SRF ReAct provides the force to squeeze the Hawk DTC pads against the rotors to stop consistently, lap after lap, hour after hour. Brake ducts feed the 3" brake ducting to the back of the rotor to keep temperatures in check during the long July and August races.
The racing experts at DiscoveryParts.com have the knowledge and experience to make sure your racecar performs at its best using components that work together. Have a dual-purpose car that takes you to the job that pays for that track weekend? Let us help you with a quickly removable harness that keeps you safe on the track, but is removable on Monday to take the kids to practice.
Purchased your first trailer and can now run a track only alignment? Let us help you get the best from Longacre to set your chassis perfectly. How much better is it? Let's look at Data Acquisition Systems from AiM to leap ahead in chassis set-up and driver improvement. DiscoveryParts.com offers the racer the best from companies like Hawk, Sparco, Schroth, G-Force, Aim, Racetech, SPA, Joe Gibbs Racing, ATL, Simpson, Longacre, MOMO, FuelSafe, and more.
DiscoveryParts keeps a list of top sellers for some of the most competitive classes. These are some of the best speed/fun per dollar for racers that exist. Huge fields make racing fun and exciting no matter where you are in the field. Let the experts at DiscoveryParts help you move through the field to the podium with these proven components.
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.
Brake Cooling Ducts and Hoses Lower Your Brake Temperature To Keep Your Stopping Distances As Short As Possible. Hold off rotor cracks and crumbled/cracked brake pads due to overtemperature and keep your racing budget in check. Having the correct racing brake ducts with the appropriately sized brake cooling hose is one of the most economical brake improvements you can make. Trust DiscoveryParts to make you go slower faster.
Compression...Fresh racing brake fluid has no air bubbles. When you step on the brake pedal, 100% of the force is transferred from the master cylinder(s) to the calipers. Old fluid, or even worse, overheated (boiled) fluid will have contaminants or air bubbles that compress, taking away your brake force and performance. Hopefully a longer brake distance is all that is encountered, not a trip into the gravel trap and the ensuing splitter damage or even worse - hitting the wall.
A swap to performance brake fluid is one of the most economical performance improvements a track car can have. Performance per dollar, brake fluid is #1. Brake fluid maintenance should be one of the driver's top priorities before loading onto the trailer.
Brake Pads Have One Purpose - Turn Friction Into Heat. That's it. But it is not that easy. A heavy GT1 car with hi spring rates, aero upgrades and slicks can take a more aggressive pad than a street driven light car on street dot tires. At DiscoveryParts, we are racers who know that over 20% of your lap is on the brake pedal. Let us help you get not only a 1/10 of a second a lap but more than that of every lap. We offer the best in racecar brake pads from Carbotech, Hawk, Pagid, and Performance Friction. Not sure what compound is right for not only your car but your driving style? Give the brake experts at DiscoveryParts a call @ 888.748.7223 to make you go slower faster.
Brake Kits and Rotors. Having a big engine and trick suspension is really nice, but being able to stop it all quickly is much more important. Brake rotors are an important component in the braking system that stops your vehicle. Some people may be surprised to learn that the brake rotors are just as important to stopping their vehicle as the brake pads are. We have your high performance brake kits and rotors.
All the little and important pieces to complete your brake installation are here. The difference is in the details. Those details are what make a top podium position possible. Low quality or poor installation, or worse - a combination of both - can not only take you off the front row, but into the frame shop. Be smart, logical, and plan your brake system once and enjoy many years of reliable racing.
Designed to provide increased clamping forces with predictive engagement and fast release, a performance clutch kit will be lighter allowing performance gains. Lightweight flywheels, multi-disk clutches, pressure plates with higher clamping loads, let DiscoveryParts improve your on-track performance.
A data acquisition system measures and records important vehicle parameters via sensors. These parameters can be analyzed to gain insight into the behavior of the engine, chassis, and driver, which can ultimately result in greater predictability and better performance on race day. Data acquisition is the key to unlocking free speed! Over recent years, data acquisition systems have become powerful tools that are vital to success at all levels of motorsport. Or, maybe you want to share a video of your winning lap and podium photo op with family and friends - we've got you covered there too. Let us maximize your machine and you with our full line of data acquisition products.

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.
Control engine heat to prevent damage and keep power at the maximum level. Heat sleeve, exhaust wrap, heat wrap, and blankets keep the heat where it is supposed to be, not robbing power from you.
Racecar Hood Pin Kits and Parts. We offer many options for securing your racecar's hood, deck lid, etc including hair-pin, flip pin, and the awesome AeroCatch. Keep your hood in place on track and make for lightning quick pit stops with the correct style hood pin kit. If the mounting location hard to reach, look at a self contained hood pin kit like the OMP Anodized Alloy Bonnett Pin Kit. If the pins are easy to reach then it is hard to beat the price of the Longacre 3/8 Hood Pin Kit , and if aero is a must then nothing beats the ultimate hood pin kit, AeroCatch. Discoveryparts offers the perfect hood pin kit for every racecar on every racetrack.
Tow Hooks serve a different purpose. They are used just before the "tow of shame" back to the paddock, where you get to spend the next 40 minutes figuring out how to get all that gravel out of every part of your racecar. At DiscoveryPart we have quite a bit of experience in the tow hook, tow loop, gravel removal department. We offer direct fit, thread-in tow hooks and many universal tow loops to make any install easy and secure. See our selection of Racing Tow Hooks and Loops and if you have any questions, of course give us a call @ 888.748.7223.

Race car interiors have unique accessory needs. From a panoramic, no blind spot mirror that widens your field of vision (for better viewing of the competition you have left behind), to steering wheel and helmet hooks designed specifically for mounting onto your roll bar, to various switches and gauges - DiscoveryParts can fulfill your racecar accessory needs.
Plumbing a race car oil system is easy, will last many race miles, and will improve not just engine performance, but engine life. A proper race car oil system will start at the engine block on the pressure side with an oil filter adapter, then through the correct fittings, lines and then the oil cooler. The return system is usually matched for hose size and for simplicity, the same fittings when possible.

Spoiler supports and body panel supports (also called fender supports) play an important role in build of a track car. By using the correct material you will insure many trouble free race laps. There are different materials used for each purpose depending on the application. A front mounted or rear trunk spoiler will need a solid, no-flex support where a body panel support will have some "give" to it to rebound to it's original shape after contact. Each style is available in different lengths to make your race car build last many years of trouble free racing.
A correct steering wheel system will give you more grip. Not to the track, but to your connection to the track. An auto racing steering wheel system will include a Steering Wheel Hub Adapter, optional Quick-Release, and Steering Wheel. This auto racing steering wheel system should be durable, offer improved grip with less hand strength (important for endurance racers) and feel natural to the driver. Steering wheels come in different depths (dish) and sizes (diameter) to make every size driver comfortable the entire race.
