HPEV and John Galt Racing to Test Composite Heat Pipe Technology in Brake Systems

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Oct 7, 2011) - HPEV, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Z3 Enterprises (PINKSHEETS: BIBB) (OTCQB: BIBB), and John Galt Racing (JGR) have agreed to test HPEV composite heat pipe technology in JGR vehicle brakes, rotors and calipers.

"If it works, the difference will be huge," said Ron Yarab, a driver for JGR. "In a 24 hour race, heat build-up forces us to change the brakes at least once, which takes 8-12 minutes. Eliminate that and we've got an automatic 5 lap advantage."

The composite heat pipes will be integrated into the OEM components, then installed on a GT3 Cup Championship car.

The anticipated benefits include cooler operating temperatures, longer component life and a reduction in heat-related failures.

HPEV believes composite heat pipes will also benefit devices that generate heat such as automatic weapons and CPUs as well as devices which rely on engines -- everything from small appliances to boats and airplanes.
