Stand Tall: A how-to on tall valve covers
As we make our Mustangs go faster we make changes to the valvetrain that at some point necessitate taller than stock valve covers to fit. Some like the "racy" look of taller valve covers but to the hard core enthusiast they serve a bigger purpose.

[02/10/2003] Toyo Tires® Named the “Official Tire of NASA”

Toyo Tires® has been named the “Official Tire of NASA” (National Auto Sport Association) beginning with the 2003 season. The Proxes RA-1™ D.O.T.-approved competition radial is a popular choice for both amateur and professional road racers. The Proxes RA-1™ provides a high level of grip while featuring superior thermal stability to ensure a more consistent, longer-lasting tire for extensive use on the track. The design of the Proxes RA-1™ benefits race teams by allowing more predictable chassis setups, and is more economical by requiring less tire replacements during the course of a season.

According to Earl Knoper, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Toyo Tire (U.S.A.) Corporation, “We are excited about our association with NASA and our increased involvement for 2003. NASA promotes a series of road races and events that complement our D.O.T.-legal Proxes RA-1™ tire. We are proud to be the tire of choice for such a large contingent of amateur and professional racers.” Formed in 1991, NASA is a 10,000-member organization with more than 15 chapters nationwide promoting road racing. NASA provides a safe and controlled environment for a large variety of classes including: NASA American Iron™, NASA Spec Miata Challenge™, Honda Challenge, the United States Touring Car Championship™ (USTCC), and the Camaro-Mustang Challenge™. In addition, NASA promotes the Hyperfest lifestyle events where Toyo is also a sponsor.

Proxes RA-1™ tires feature “V” or “Z” ratings (depending on size), and are also available in 13-, 14-, 15-, 16-, 17- and 18-inch diameters. The tread is molded with an 8/32" depth for superior wet traction, while it can be shaved to 4/32" to generate an extreme cornering force on dry tracks. For more information, contact your local Toyo retailer, or browse the Performance Tire section of the Toyo website at or Be sure to follow the NASA racing schedule and results at

Toyo manufactures and distributes a complete line of high performance and original equipment replacement tires for passenger car, light truck, commercial truck, bus, off-road and construction applications.
