ENOUGH SPACE

B-G Steering Wheel Spacers are designed to bring the steering wheel closer to the driver for improved steering input and driver comfort.

This steering wheel spacer comes in a black anodised finish and is made from high-quality aluminium. Fixing screws are included.

The spacer comes multi-drilled for both 6x70mm and 6x74mm PCD bolt patterns. These will accommodate the majority of aftermarket steering wheels thus enabling cross-compatibility between hub kits and steering wheels with either 6x70mm or 6x74mm PCD patterns.

MOMO/Sparco/OMP steering wheels can be fitted to a Nardi/Personal hub kit or vice versa.

The Steering Wheel Spacer can also be utilised as a simple More >

ALL-CARB DIET FROM EDELBROCK

Edelbrock’s 650cfm AVS2 carburettors now have a little brother. The 500cfm AVS2 carburettors are ideal for street rods, classic trucks, and other vehicles with stock or mildly upgraded small block V8s. Edelbrock also makes this pre-calibrated, especially for dual quad setups.

If you’ve got something a little gnarlier, the 650cfm AVS2 is for you, say Summit Racing. They are recommended for small and big block V8s with dual or single plane intake manifolds.

All AVS2 carburettors have many of the features of the Performer and first-gen AVS models – a two-piece, all-aluminium construction for cooler operating temperatures and less warping; no gaskets More >

IN ISOLATION

We’ve all seen battery isolator switches that look similar to this one before, but the Aeroflow Battery Isolator Switch has a rating of 350-amps continuous and 500-amps surge. Would you seriously trust a (similarly priced) Far Eastern version to handle that sort of power?

The Aeroflow Battery Isolator Switch has been designed to isolate the battery circuit and provide anti-theft and fire protection.

It includes a detachable key and weather-resistant cap and is also ideal for camper vans (RVs), marine, construction and farm equipment use.

The switch is also ideal for race vehicles and cars with a sound system that has a high More >

WELCOME to totalkitcar online

Welcome to totalkitcar online…….I was very sad to learn of the death of Haynes Publishing founder, John H Haynes, OBE, recently, after a short illness.

Born in Sri Lanka in 1938, publishing was in John’s blood with his first home-produced booklet ‘Building A 750cc Special’ selling out from a little advert in Motor Sport magazine. “I produced 250 copies and did all the illustrations myself. I sold the lot in ten days at five bob (25p) each,” he told me once.

The first Haynes Manual on the Frogeye Sprite appeared in 1966 and since then Haynes Publishing has sold 200-million More >

SUPER ‘SUPER SPORTS’ FROM RPS

I’m a big fan of the MG-based conversion kits of RPS Ltd, run by Garry and Julie Hutton. Indeed, I own one of their RPX TF-based conversions and think it is a superb update for the two-seater. They produce innovative and very affordable kit packages that can be bought all-in-one or in stages.

They’ve recently updated the RPX to RPX 500, which features several subtle revisions including restyled bonnet. Not content with that they have just announced the Super Sports for MGF. Although not a replica of the original (of which just two were built in period) it is certainly evocative More >

IT’S A CHILL BLAST

New from Auto Glym is Polar Blast, which is a pH neutral pre-wash that takes you from ‘caked in mud’ to ‘caked in foam’ in the time it takes you to do a lap of your car with a pressure washer.

Once you’ve had your fill of 90’s nightclub nostalgia and your thick, pillowy, foam party has covered every inch of your car; put your feet up (for ten mins max) and sit back in awe of the amazing ‘cling ability’ of Autoglym’s already established and excellent snow foam formula.

As the product gets to work, visibly drawing the larger particles of More >
