WITH A BANJO ON MY KNEE

Early MGB models (up to 1965) used a ‘banjo’ type rear axle, whereas later examples had a Salisbury type item.

While the banjo axle was adequate for road use, when subjected to the rigours of racing broken half-shafts were common. The later Salisbury axle was much tougher, having been designed for the six-cylinder MGC, later five bearing MGBs and also the MGB V8.

Cambridge Motorsport Parts can now offer a race banjo axle casing for early MGB models that incorporates the later style half-shafts, back plates and brake drums making it a direct fit on early MGBs, instantly providing an upgrade and More >

BUILDING BLOCKS

Burton Power can now supply brand new BDG 2-litre engine blocks cast in aluminium alloy.

These lightweight blocks are made from genuine new Cosworth/Ford castings and even incorporate the Ford logo.

They come complete with liners pre-fitted and bored to a finished size of 90mm, while two bolt-type steel main caps are also installed. This block is almost the same as the Cosworth BDG block released last year but it has steel liners instead of the more expensive Nikosil versions, bringing down the overall price substantially.

STAY COOL

You’ve possibly noticed how your engine runs better on a cool evening than it does on a hot day. That’s because the air in the intake charge is cooler and denser and introduces more oxygen into the engine for an efficient and more complete burn.

This in turn makes the performance livelier and increases horsepower.

Traditionally tuners used a cold air intake to draw air from outside the warm engine bay… now DEI has come up with a new way to improve on this by using liquid carbon dioxide to physically cool the intake down as well.

MEVSTER – NUMBER 25? DOES THE MAN NEVER SLEEP?

Latest sexy design from MEV is the MEVSTER

That man Stuart Mills, boss of Mills Extreme Vehicles and recipient of the inaugural tkc mag/totalkitcar SPECIAL AWARD is proving to be very prolific with his new designs just like some of the industry’s past greats.

His newly announced model is the MEVSTER and is a completely new product sharing nothing with other MEV’s such as the Exocet apart from Mazda MX-5, which supplies pretty much everything you need outside of the kit to build a MEVSTER.

MEV’s USP of easy, quick and low-cost builds is upheld with the new model, then.

All-new design shares only Mazda More >

NICE INSTRUMENTS

Travelling around visiting kitcar manufacturers there’s certain products you see being used on their cars whether it be a particular engine finding favour, a donor vehicle such as the MX-5 gaining in popularity or even a particular type of oil frequently being used.

When it comes to gauges and instruments there are two particular types of product that I really do see all the time of late. One is the Vapor units the other is the wonderful Koso stuff sold by Jon Pullara sold under the Digital Speedos banner.

The Koso products come in a wide range of styles in compact and More >
