Like a coveted golden ticket hidden within the wrapper of a Wonka Bar, this week’s new product announcement promises a lifetime of wild wonder and rotted teeth. Read up, rinse and spit.
KONI RAID Red Shocks—Huffing a sock full of Raid bug spray could leave you feeling like a six-legged character from a Kafka short story. But, equipping your street demon with these boss shocks from KONI will make you feel like Viggo Mortensen’s trusty mustang, Hidalgo, racing across Arabia in the ’04 blockbuster Hidalgo, a movie about a horse named Hidalgo. These suckers are perfect for serious off-road racing, Baja 500-style.
KONI Heavy Track Red Shocks—Neil Diamond said it best (yes, better than The Hollies, you audio-snobs): “He ain’t heavy, he’s my shock absorber.” If the welfare of your suspension system is of your concern, these Koni shocks deliver the goods your rugged off-roader demands…they’re just a notch down from the race-ready RAID Red Shocks.
Licensed Logo Hitch Covers by Pilot—Go down the right alley in Hong Kong or Los Angeles’s Garment District, and you could find an unlicensed version of these hitch covers by Pilot Automotive (not to mention knock-off Big Johnson shirts). But, bypassing licensing fees means you’d be stealing bread out of the hungry mouths of mammoth corporations, whose coffers are not yet lined with enough gold-plated diamonds.
