ROUND AND ROUND

Mountney, makers of some of the world’s most highly respected and sought-after aftermarket steering wheels, has started the year with a bang, expanding its Classic range of wheels to cater to an even greater variety of cars than ever before. Mountney has opted to let its 17in Classic Riveted Woodrim wheel lead the charge in this respect, with the timeless product now available in both light and dark wood variants, plus another with a leather coated rim.

THUNDERSTRUCK

Edelbrock’s Thunder Series AVS carbs have two new additions. The AVS2 Series 650 cfm 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 below the fuel bowl level for fewer leaks; easily changed metering rods for precise tuning; and no plastic parts or power valves to blow out.

Edelbrock reckons what makes the AVS2 carbs better are the annular flow primary boosters with a new calibration for improved off idle and cruising performance. The downleg primary boosters used on many street carburettor designs simply More >
