Don’t look now, but the cutting edge of car enthusiasts are driving, building, and buying cars that make huge power and handle and stop like slots cars. As cool as the cars of yesteryear still are, the latest trends are directed at cars that ride on low-profile tires and set very close to the ground. It’s a natural fact of physics. Lower the car’s center of gravity to increase the handling capability, and raise the fun factor for free. And to make more power and since an engine is basically just a simple air pump, automotive aces like Adam LZ shove hordes of air through the cylinders with a big turbo and voila! Huge engine performance-Wow, that’s cool.
Born and raised on BMX bikes, 20-something Adam Lizotte-Zeister of Adam LZ’s YouTube fame is now all-in on his car thing. His collection of cool and mostly modified late-model cars speaks to that. Within his stable of cars are more than a few that Adam LZ can perfectly drift (i.e. deliberately controlling a moving car in oversteer angles at high speed) for hours on end. Or at least until he needs to swap out all 4 burning tires after they have been smoked to the core. He drifts his modified cars so well, that he makes something that is very hard to do, look perfectly easy. Much like a free bird circling in flight over a deep canyon. The size of his car collection rivals a small town used car lot. But on the flip side, his YouTube channel “Adam LZ” produces followers that deliver a Manhattan-sized presence. With a business model that basically follows the adage, “It’s not over until you’ve won”, Adam LZ lives to push beyond his own bounds. But the larger challenge is making sure cars like these have the lifts and garage equipment to support advancing automotive trends on their own turf or better yet; on their own concrete. Adam LZ’s awesome car collection starts with (but does not end with) cars like a BMW 335, his famous 1989 Nissan 240SX first drift car, Nissan S15, Can-Am, Mustang GT350, Porsches, Mitsubishi EVO, a lifted Ford truck, JDM cars, and much more. That’s why Oviedo, Florida-based Adam LZ looks to BendPak to find the quality lifts and shop equipment to support his car collection while he is modifying, repairing and maintaining them.
Watch Adam LZ on YouTube talk about his new BendPak XPR-10AXLS-LP 2-post lift; 12 minutes into the video:
To keep his fleet in order, Adam LZ outfitted his shop with 2, extra-high BendPak lifts. We call these our BendPak XPR-10AXLS-LP. The lift arms on these tall units reach heights 6” more than our standard BendPak XPR-10AS. That means 75” high and that can be a lot if you are tall or need some extra clearance to work on suspensions, exhaust systems, under-engine repairs and more. Or maybe partially pulling a second car in the shop for the weekend. Remember, you can always lower a lift to suit your working position, but there is a limit to how high a lift will go. Sometimes having that extra height capability can be a real benefit. And since the BendPak XPR-10AXLS-LP features asymmetric posts meaning the two posts are installed angled with a 30-degree rotation, the columns allow extra car door opening distance. This also means you can put wider cars with long doors between the two posts; like 1970’s 2-door domestic cars.</div> <div style=">
Check Out BendPak’s XPR-10AXLS-LP Benefits:
- 10,000 lb. lifting capacity
- Asymmetric/High Rise design
- 30-degree rotated single-piece columns
- Drop-end arms provide a lower pad height
- Oversized 53” tall carriage for superior strength
- 4-piece 63 mm stackable adapter set included
- Wide or narrow drive-thru configuration
- Versatile drop-in contact pads with stackable adapter pins
The useful features don’t stop there either. BendPak’s XPR-10AXLS-LP, has lift arms that are geometrically angled to contact hard to reach lift points and incorporate a low-profile design; hence the “LP” in the model number. In more detail, the low-profile design allows the lift arms to fit under the chassis, while avoiding contact with the body. This feature is especially helpful with many of today’s lower cars that often have body-colored, ground-effects protruding along the side sill areas.
BendPak’s Tru-Metric arms and asymmetric columns are just a few of the many features that Adam LZ counts on each day. When your day planner is packed with adding turbos, drifting, producing endless videos for Adam LZ’ YouTube channels and more, you need vehicle lifts and equipment that you can always rely on. Car enthusiasts and professionals like Adam LZ recognize and chose lifts like BendPak’s XPR-10AXLS-LP for its design, high lifting capability, and reliable quality. BendPak lifts and shop equipment keep Adam LZ and you always on the cutting edge of auto lift and shop equipment technology.
