After months of preparation, practice and planning, the season's race championship can rely on just one fastener doing its job. If that fastener shears or loosens, the whole race can be lost -- not to mention valuable machinery and even lives. This informative publication is a guide to hardware for race and street cars.
Famed race team manager Carroll Smith tells you what each nut, bolt, fastener, and plumbing piece is, how it works, how to torque it, where to use it, and where not to use it.
Over 320 photographs, technical drawings, and illustrations are included. Published by Motorbooks International. Distributed by SAE.

Beyond repair manuals, these books are tailored to the enthusiast who cares for their vehicles. The books are detailed, full of color photographs and filled with DIY project ideas.
