Innovative Customized Car Care Kit for Women Carmine
Launches on Indiegogo
Carmine will equip every woman driver with safety, security and knowledge
about her own car
Birmingham, ALABAMA, September 28, 2016: Innovative, first-of-its-kind customized car care kit for every woman ‘Carmine’ has jumped off to an impressive start for the launch campaign on Indiegogo. Link: https://igg.me/at/carmine/x The mission for Carmine is to create a community where every woman driver is prepared to avoid vehicle breakdowns, tire damage and avoidable situations with full knowledge about her own car’s exact requirements. Tess Winningham, founder and CEO of Carmine, is aiming to raise $9,000 in 60 days for the production and launch of Carmine in the market by December 2016.
Carmine is the latest offering from Alignment Simple Solutions, the Birmingham, Alabama based company which is the maker of the patented line of QuickTrickTM products and the industry leader in portable alignment solutions. This new design is a complete knowledge center and tool kit which is customized as per the exact needs of your vehicle by year, make & model.
Tess Winningham, CEO & Co Founder of Carmine and Alignment Simple Solutions said in a press statement, “Women spend over $300 billion a year on car maintenance and repairs around the globe. We aim to put a dent in that spending by educating women about their specific vehicle and providing a personalized option for roadside emergency kits, vehicle basics through video content from industry experts and exclusive access to new technology.”
Most men don’t blink twice before changing a flat tire, replacing a headlight, replacing wiper blades or simply checking basic fluids and preventative maintenance. But most women shy away from any hands-on or DIY approach. Carmine is aimed at helping every woman be fully prepared to deal with and avoid car-related emergencies with knowledge and confidence.
Here’s what’s in your Carmine:
- Your vehicle identity card with Year, Make, Model
- Vitals cards for your specific tire pressure, alignment specifications, recommended fluids (Coolant, Oil, etc)
- An illustrated photo of your engine bay for your make and model with indicators on where to place and check vital fluids
- Tire Pressure Gauge
- Wheel Alignment Specs
- Brookstone Safety Flashlight and Tool
- Exclusive Carmine Membership that will unlock your access to:
- Exclusive discounts and exciting new technologies for your total vehicle experience
- How to videos by industry experts
- Forums for discussion, and more.
To attract men and women to support the Carmine crowdfunding Indiegogo campaign, a number of exciting perks are on offer. The top perk is an all-expense paid trip to the exclusive SEMA show in Las Vegas in November to three backers who pledge $10,000.
For pledging $7500, four backers will get Carmine + Emergency Roadside Kit + QuickTrick Pick 3 Wheel Alignment System + Weekend getaway for 2 to a regional Bed & Breakfast resort for 2 nights/ 3 days.
The first Carmines signed by the team and an opportunity to be in the featured Carmine Launch national commercial campaign is the perk on offer for five backers who pledge $5400.
And there are a range of other perks, equally attractive for backers of all categories ranging from $10 to $1836. Two of the popular perks are:
- Family (4) Carmine w/ Auto Safety Tool which entails a saving of $129 (25%) off the $516 Retail Price + 10% off on all QuickTrick products for pledging $387; and
- An attractive ‘Thank You’ travel cup + 10% off on all QuickTrick products for those who pledge $25.
“Carmine, like all QuickTrick products, is dedicated to giving back. We have partnered with the MTJ Foundation (http://martintruexjrfoundation.org/), dedicated to the support of underfunded cancer initiatives specific to ovarian cancer & childhood cancers.” Stated Ms Winningham “We have committed to 5% of annual profits going to this great charity indefinitely.”
The Indiegogo campaign, off to a positive start is now awaiting backers’ support to make its funding program successful. The campaign is perfectly timed to help backers pre-book Carmine for themselves and as a Thanksgiving gift and to ensure that the customized Carmines and other rewards are delivered in December.

Birmingham, AL, June 18, 2016: Alignment Simple Solutions, the leader in portable wheel alignment solutions is expanding their customized fleet system, developed in partnership with PepsiCo’s Frito Lay fleet operations and Lee County school bus transportation into the Government and NGO sector. QuickTrickTM portable wheel alignment kits are a popular product line among automotive enthusiasts, DIYers and racers.
The innovative product line that will tap the larger market of fleet and transport customers is the latest offering from QuickTrickTM, the flagship brand of the Birmingham, Alabama-based Alignment Simple Solutions (ALSS). “Our larger fleet system, the QuickTrickTM fleet and RV kit, was developed based on a request from our friends at PepsiCo, in the Frito Lay fleet operations,” said Ms Tess Winningham, Alignment Simple Solutions President and CEO, in a press statement. “After several years of improvements, this same system is now used to perform portable wheel alignments on everything from Sprinters to E350’s, Semi Trucks, School & City buses and even a Jet Fighter system.”
ALSS delivered on its largest partnership to date with National Express, a subsidiary of National Express Coaches based in the UK. National Express USA maintains over 20,000 school buses and has adopted the QuickTrickTM Fleet systems to assist in this process.
“This is our largest customer in the school transportation industry and it just reaffirms the need for our products expansion. We have also provided solutions for other notable companies such as the New York City MTA, Contractors working on the Alaskan Pipeline and even Military and the Global Missionary Forces,” Ms Winningham explained.

Birmingham, AL, April 14, 2016: In a bid to give a quantum boost to their expansion into the global markets and online sales, Alignment Simple Solutions, a leading manufacturer of alignment measuring systems based in Birmingham, Ala., under the popular brand QuickTrick Alignment has launched their new, user-friendly website developed by their web solutions partner Wisitech InfoSolutions.
“A need to increase conversion rates and get in line with new Google and search algorithms made us decide on a website revamp,” said Tess Winningham, company president and CEO, in a press statement. “We feel very prepared for our upcoming National Television exposure and the site I a work to be proud of. I knew when researching the previous work of Wisitech that this is the right team to take QuickTrick to the next level of global recognition and sales. I am looking forward to seeing the increased revenue from higher conversions.”
The key challenge when revamping the site was to organize the information cohesively and in a sequenced manner so as to make it easy for the visitor to find the relevant information with minimal clicks. “The old site was rich with information, manuals, user reviews, DIYs and everything that you can think of in the subject area,” said Partho Mondal, CEO, Wisitech. “But it was all scattered around. We created a compelling and user-friendly design where all the information was reorganized as per the need basis. Hence, you now have separate categories for product information, reviews, videos, tips and faqs and so on. Even under product information, a quick glance is enough to tell you which set of products is meant for which kind of user – home, racers, truckers, bus series, etc.”
The new website makes it simple for the user to pick his kind of product, choose the particular size or variant, check its videos and make a purchase, all from one page. Besides, every page is search engine optimized with all textual and image-related elements made SEO-friendly. “Great look, sharper style, ease of use for customers across any platform be it mobile or other,” said Tess, summing up the new positioning.
Referring to Wisitech team as ‘smooth, fast, intuitive and a great team’, Tess added, “Wisitech over delivered on promises on deadlines, explanations to educate me on the most effective trends for conversion and a constant commitment to be there while making everything in the website user friendly if I prefer to do things myself.”
Alignment Simple Solutions started as a home hobby with the first QuickTrick being invented for use for Chump Car races. We needed a tool to adjust the race car alignment for each track and for all three angles of caster, camber & toe.
The business was formed in 2012 after the demand became evident and we won a few awards. Our mission is to provide quality manufacture of portable & affordable wheel alignment products. We work to achieve our mission by understanding the needs of our customers, consumer and business, ongoing product improvement and innovation, educational development to ourselves and associates and by giving back to the community through our preferred charities.

New at Summit Racing Equipment: Detroit Muscle Wheel Alignment Tool Combo
For More Information and High Resolution Images Please Contact: Alan Rebescher, ARebescher@SummitRacing.com
Waaaay back in 2014, the gang at PowerNation TV’s Detroit Muscle built a big bad 1978 “Bandit” Pontiac Trans-Am. They stuffed it with a 574 cubic inch stroker 455 putting 367 horsepower and almost 416 lbs.-ft. of torque to the rear wheels. That’s a lot of grunt.
One thing the Detroit Muscle guys did was a front end alignment with the QuickTrick QuickSlide Wheel Alignment Tool before taking the Trans-Am out on the road. The easy to use tool allows you to check caster, camber, and toe-in in minutes with no lift required.
The QuickSlide tool is accurate to within 1/10 of a degree, and will help improve steering effort and handling as well as extending tire life. It’s also ideal for adjusting alignment settings at the track—and all for less than the cost of two alignments at your friendly alignment shop. The QuickSlide Tool comes with three patent pending QT Lip Pins that fit on the wheel lip, a digital gauge, instructions, and carrying case.
But we went the Detroit Muscle guys one better and created a Wheel Aligment Combo that includes a set of QuickTrick Alignment Turn Plates. The plates are just 5/16 inch thick, so you can drive or push the car onto them—no jack or lift needed. The Turn Plates have a scale that reads from +20 to -20 degrees in one degree increments. A Teflon® coating between the plates prevents binding, so turning the wheels for precise alignment is smooth and accurate. There are no pins to reset nor a pointer that can be damaged.
Using the QuickTrick Alignment Turn Plates is easy:
• Roll the front wheels onto the plates. The bottom plates do not have to be square with the wheels but the wheels should be straight
• Use a dry erase marker or scotch tape to mark the 0 degree position from the scale on the base plates
• Set the caster, camber, and toe with appropriate tools
You can see how the QuickTrick QuickSlide tool works—and get a good look at the Trans-Am too—by watching this episode of Detroit Muscle at Powernationtv.com.
