When the Maxx2Racing Team made the decision to expand to a second car, The Royal Purple ’99 Firebird Pro Touring-LSR Race Car, the clear choice for their coating needs was Jet-Hot. Not stopping at just components that are subject to extreme heat, this car includes Jet-Hot coated satin black door, hood, and rear hatch hinges, fender brackets, and other items subject to the elements and wear and tear. The team had used their coatings on their first Pro-Touring/Land Speed race car, a ’69 El Camino, knowing fully that their performance coatings are the best available at any price. Additionally, their coatings are used exclusively on The Royal Purple Maxx2Racing ‘Bad Bird’ LSR Race Car.
Over the past three decades, Jet-Hot has earned a reputation among car and motorcycle fans as the go-to company for engine and drivetrain coatings. It’s no coincidence that The Royal Purple Maxx2Racing Team chose Jet-Hot coatings for their headers, valve covers, hood scoop, and brake components on the ‘Bad Bird’. Jet-Hot is owned and operated by car enthusiasts. They understand the importance of coatings because they restore, show and race all kinds of cars (from vintage station wagons and Sunday cruisers to custom muscle cars and turbo-charged street rods – nearly 100 in all).
While you may think of Jet-Hot as primarily for coating headers, their capabilities stretch far beyond shiny silver. In fact, Jet-Hot is debuting 33 new colors this month at SEMA. Their coatings can be used in a wide range of performance improvement projects, including:
Jet-Hot has partnered with winning rides, such as the Royal Purple ‘Bad Bird’, BIGFOOT, and 15 times Funny Car World Champion John Force. With alliances with LS Engine guru Kurt Urban and leading car dynamists Detroit Speed Engineering (DSE), Jet-Hot maintains its cutting edge coatings through the extreme testing of both professional and grass-roots racing enthusiasts.
Like Maxx2Racing, Jet-Hot is along for the ride with USAC drivers Shannon McQueen and Michelle Decker, Good-Guys Rod and Custom Truck owner Trent Sommers, and Jeff Cleary’s 1967 LS7 Corvette.
