About Alcon

We don’t think anyone will dispute the importance of brakes on your car for safety reasons but we also know that not just any brake will do if you are interested in things beyond the safety issue; such as, brakes that you can feel confident about, that make driving easy and for those race enthusiasts brakes that reduce lap times. So let us introduce you to the archetype of brake designers and manufacturers, ALCON. This is a company whose repertoire of products start with something as small as tiny brake-by-wire controllers for Formula E racing cars to calipers needed on 35 tons of armored vehicles. Since the company’s founding in 1983 by John Moore who is both an engineer and sports car racer ALCON has had as its goal customer satisfaction. Excellence is the key word in describing ALCON whose client base is world wide and whose goal is to satisfy even the most discriminating customer who is interested in extremely high quality and low volume brakes. In addition ALCON designs and manufactures clutches and other automotive components and all are treated with the same engineering excellence as in the ALCON brakes.

ALCON knows that at the heart of all great products is the ability to design something that is better than the competition’s and that not only works better but lasts longer. The importance of research and development is not lost on ALCON and they are always looking toward the future developing new ideas and they do this through the use of primo topology optimization and 3D printing and the revolutionary lattice core constriction.

Simulation has allowed ALCON the ability to improve the quality and efficiency of their products by being able to do such things as examining the way air flows through a disc or adding turbulence-inducing ridges to the vanes. All of this results in a lighter product that has increased thermal efficiency requiring less ducting, improves aerodynamics and creates an ability to slow quicker and be faster everywhere else And ALCON recognizes the importance of the manufacturing process as the key needed to create the very best products. Consequently, they use the epitome of five axis CNC machines with which to create components from forgings and solid billets of aluminum and all calipers meet the highest standards through extensive quality control. To further assure you of a primo product performance testing and measurement is conducted with ALCON on site dynamometers and their NVH dyno can map all noise issues, vibration and harshness.

The ALCON engineers know that their components must be strong, light and efficient and so they use top notch CAE design software and avant-garde technologies such as topology optimization. But ALCON does not rest on its laurels but rather looks to the future and recognizes every opportunity available with one such opportunity being in the area of 3D printing and lattice core construction.

Whether you are in the market for brakes for your high performance road car or a racer who needs the special brakes ALCON is sure to be able to meet your needs and if you are interested in clutches or other automotive components ALCON might have just what you are looking for.


These are some of the items you can find at LMPerformance for your Ford

The Ford Motor Company, founded by Henry Ford on June 16, 1903 and based in Dearborn, Michigan, is an American automaker and the world's fifth largest automaker based on worldwide vehicle sales. It is one of the most profitable companies in the world, as well as being one of the few to survive the Great Depression and it is the largest family-controlled company in the world, having been in continuous family control for over 110 years. Ford now encompasses two brands: Ford and Lincoln. Late Model Performance can provide parts for 54 models of these American icons whether for street use, racing or off-road the answer to your quest is here.

The quintessential Mustang is well represented at Late Model Performance with a capacious array of parts for chassis and suspension, drive train and transmission, electronics and tuners, interior and exterior accessories, engine components, exhausts, gauges, lighting and induction parts. With body kits from Street Scene, 3dCarbon, RK Sport, Xenon, DURAFLEX, Couture, Carbon Creations the proud Mustang owner has a wide array of types of kits to choose from. The first thing you need to do is decide on the type of material whether fiberglass, polyurethane, ABS plastic, carbon fiber and composite. Polyurethane parts, like the ones manufactured by 3dCarbon, Xenon, Couture and RK Sport, are heavier than fiberglass, not necessarily ideal for racing if weight reduction is the main objective; plus, specialized preparation is required for paint to adhere correctly and it is susceptible to warping under extreme heat. It is; however, extremely flexible, virtually unbreakable and resistant to abrasion and temperature, oil, gasoline and other solvents. Carbon fiber parts, like the one available from the renowned manufacturer Carbon Creations, are ideal for racing because of their extreme strength and light weight; plus, they come clear-coated and don't need to be painted. The significant downside to carbon fiber is its higher cost of production resulting in a more expensive product. The composite creation by Extreme Dimensions, DURAFLEX, is an excellent choice because it is a unique blend of flex resins, fiberglass and plastic that is much stronger than fiberglass and has maximum flexibility; and additionally, it comes with a black primer finish for ease of painting.

Bumping up the horsepower on your Mustang just makes sense and Late Model Performance can help you do that with PYPES’ Exhaust systems, one of the paramount manufacturers of exhaust systems on the market for price and superior quality.

With the conjunctive Crossover design it is not unusual to see an increase of anywhere between fifteen and twenty-five HP. A straight path is afforded by the Open Port Exhaust when it is uncapped; however, but you still benefits from the crossover technology and can expect between ten to fifteen HP. An options that is available on this system is the PYPES PYPE Bomb which utilizes a unique louvered core resonated dual wall 304 stainless tip to give you that American Muscle Car sound but not that popping associated with other lesser kits.

The Loudmouth Exhaust by SLP Performance has transformed many cars like the CAMARO SS into modern muscle machines and you can do that too for your Ford car whether it is a CAMARO or not. The exceptional properties; such as exceptional flow characteristics, lighter weight, ease of installation, stainless steel in its entirety and hand-polished dual wall tips in addition to its incredible sound make it an easy choice when thinking about a performance exhaust system.
