We’ve become quite accustomed to the quality of Fragola Performance Systems’ line of hoses and fittings in our project vehicles at the Power Automedia garage, and we can certainly attest ot the quality of the products they deliver.
Fragola, along with sister brand, FK Rod Ends, have a number of new products for the show-goers at this SEMA Show. Among them are new conversion hose ends, in a -6 by -8 barb. They’re doing the same with their reusable-style hose ends, in -10 sizing, and also have a new -10AN ORB fuel log for nitrous cars, so that you can stack multiple regulators — one for the motor and the other two for a couple of stages of nitrous oxide. They’ve also introduced an 84000 Series black nylon race hose, that features a fire sleeve and their 3000 Series crimp ends.
On the FK Rod End side, Jeff Stacy shared with us that nothing significant has changed in their product line, aside from making continual improvements to increase strength and longevity of their product. “A rod end is pretty well a rod end. The great thing we’ve seen in the last couple of years is a resurgence in people wanting American-made products, and being an American manufacturer, that’s been a great thing to witness. The level of acceptance, whether it’s drag racing, off road, cycle track racing, has been really nice,” Stacy says.
