MOTUL OIL: New Product Added To Growing Inventory

LAUNCH Distribution is proud to announce the arrival of Motul Oil to our increasing parts line up.

About:
Founded in 1853 in New York as a subsidiary of John D. Rockefeller’s New Jersey’s Standard Oil, the Swan & Finch company started its activity in the sector of high quality lubricants. As from 1920, it turns to the international markets by exporting some of its portfolio brands like Aerul, Textul, Motul.

In 1932, Ernst Zaugg negotiated the distribution in France of products of the Motul brand with Swan & Finch via his company Supra Penn.[1] In 1953, the Swan & Finch centenary is celebrated with the worldwide launch of Motul Century, which becomes the first multigrade oil on the European market. However, Swan & Finch suspended its activities in 1957. Supra Penn bought back all title deeds and patents pertaining to the Motul brand, which was renamed for the company’s chief product, becoming Motul S.A.

In 1966, Century 2100 appeared on the market. It was the first semi-synthetic car lubricant,[2] a product that withstands constraints and mechanical loads ten-times higher than usual lubricants. In 1971, Motul innovated again with Century 300V, the first 100% synthetic car oil. Motul strengthened its international presence in the 1980s: Germany with Motul Deutschland in 1980, Spain in 1988, the USA in 1989, Italy in 1994, Asia-Pacific in 2002, Russia and Brazil in 2005, India in 2006. Moreover, Motul created a new activity in 2001: Motul Tech, specialized in industrial lubricants.

Today, Motul is present in more than 80 countries and designs, elaborates and distributes lubricants with higher technical value added. As a pioneer in many synthetic and semi-synthetic products, Motul has always favored innovation, research and development. The company is also a leader in the motorcycle lubricants market in France. In the motorsports field, many manufacturers trust Motul for its technological developments in car/bike racing. Motul has thus developed close relationships with manufacturers such as Nissan, Yamaha, Subaru, Peugeot, Honda and Suzuki.

Motul was the first lubricant manufacturer to use the ester technology for the formulation of its 100% synthetic car oils by capitalizing on an innovation first invented for the aviation industry.[citation needed] The vegetable-based esters benefit from lubricating properties, anti-shear quality and exceptional resistance to high temperatures. “300V”, Motul’s flagship range, experienced great development thanks to its presence on the most prestigious car/bike races. Motul’s research and development capacity is divided in two entities working respectively on “Automotive” (automobile, two-wheels, boat) and “Industrial” lubricants.

As a specialist in synthetic oils, Motul has become the partner of many manufacturers and sports teams for its technological developments in mechanical sports, car and motorcycle racing. Motul is present in many international competitions as official team supplier : MotoGP, Road racing, Trial, Enduro, Endurance, Superbike, Supercross, Rallycross, World Rally Championship, FIA GT, Le Mans 24 Hours, Spa 24 Hours, Le Mans Series, rally raid, Paris-Dakar, F3, etc. In 1977, Motul wins its first Motorcycle World Champion title, in Road Racing category, with Takazumi Katayama on Yamaha 350.

Clutch Masters: NOW Available at LAUNCH DIstribution

LAUNCH Distribution is proud to announce the arrival of Clutch Masters performance clutches and flywheels to our motorsports lineup.

Contact your LAUNCH Sales rep for available applications and pricing today at (626) 839=7150.

ABOUT
Clutch Masters

High Technology Makes the Difference
Historically, high performance clutches have been a compromise. While improving holding or clamping pressure, manufacturers nearly always increase pedal pressure to an uncomfortable point, especially for stop-and-go traffic.

Besides drivability concerns, additional pedal pressure can adversely affect stock clutch linkage and cause premature thrust bearing wear, leading to missed shifts, damaged clutch components and even engine destruction.

Today, thanks to Clutch Masters, increased holding pressure does not necessarily mean increased pedal pressure and the problems that can accompany it. By re-engineering the leverage or fulcrum point on the pressure plate through their Hi-Leveragetm ttechnique, Clutch Masters has increased clamping power, often without changing pedal pressure.

Excessively increased pedal pressure, as found in many of today’s traditional high performance clutches, places an unsafe amount of pressure on the delicate crankshaft thrust bearing found in most of today’s sport compact automobiles. Placing undue stress on the thrust bearing typically causes the bearing to wear prematurely or fail altogether. This failure can lead to catastrophic internal engine damage.

A clutch, simply put, is a friction device that disengages and engages the engine from the transmission to allow for transition from motionless to movement and for gear changes. For street applications a smooth transition of power is essential while still being able to transfer all the power of the engine to the transmission. As power output of engines increase and demands on clutches become greater – for example high performance street or racing cars – the holding and clamping capacity of a clutch also must increase. This is where Clutch Masters’ innovative engineering comes into play.

Simply the Best…

aFe Power: Twisted Steel Header for 2001-2006 BMW M3 (E46)

The headers are constructed of near equal length 1.625” 16-gauge 304 stainless steel tubing with 3/8” thick CNC machined flanges to ensure a leak free seal. To eliminate dead space that can cause turbulence and hinder flow that formed collectors are prone to produce, true merge collectors and optimized tube lengths are used for true pulse control technology improving flow and performance. 100% TIG-welded, the smooth curves and increased diameter of this header helps remove restriction and keeps exhaust gas flowing smoothly for improved performance and durability. All components are supplied for a hassle-free installation with no modifications necessary.

Tig-Welded:
100% TIG-Welded by certified craftsmen for race proven strength and durability. TIG-Welding provides the strongest welds reducing stress cracks.

Retain Factory Sensors:
aFe has designed this system to retain all your factory sensors for a hassle free installation.
