NEAT OIL CANISTER PROTECTOR

Most engine oils are designed to work optimally between 82°C – 99°C.

However, DEI’s new Oil Filter Shield effectively protects spin-on type oil filter canisters from radiant heat, which can change the oil’s viscosity or potentially cause a thermal breakdown that makes the oil additives degrade, dissipate and wear out quickly.

DEI’s Oil Filter Heat Shield is available in two sizes:

3½in – 4½in x 4in high 88.99mm – 114.3mm x 101.6mm high part #010740

or

2½in – 3½in x 3in high 63.5mm – 88.9mm x 76.2mm high part #010741

It can be trimmed to fit any size of oil filter and is sold in a More >

SHIELD STUFF FROM HEAT

Turbochargers generate lots of heat and you want to keep that heat inside the turbo to keep the turbine wheel spinning and keep under-bonnet temperatures from spiking and damaging your paint and heat-sensitive electronics.

Summit Racing’s Volcano Turbo Heat Shields do just that. Made from volcanic rock fibre and high-tech materials, the shields are stronger than other types, and can withstand radiant heat up to 1800 degrees F continuous and 2500 degrees intermittent.

F48 – THE TWO-DAY DEHAVILLAND

The DeHavilland F48 will make its debut at Stoneleigh 2019 and it’s a two-seat, rear-wheel drive, mid-engined sportscar.

DeHavilland boss, Terry Groves told me: “The brief we gave ourselves for the car we are now launching as the F48 was quite a complex one. It involved designing a car that was unique, quick to assemble, had good performance, was easily maintainable, functional, offer very good value for money and finally could be assembled by a complete novice.

“In order to accomplish everything set out in our design brief we have had to seriously look at how kitcars and mainstream sportscars are manufactured More >

BULGARIAN BEAUTY

Bulgarian kitcar maker AeroMaster is now offering their LMP race-orientated replica in kit form. Gunther Schleyer of German company, CCK Kempten (for many years they’ve promoted leading UK kit and specialist car makers in their homeland) gave some advice in the development stages. The LMP is a pastiche of the ultra-pretty Bentley LMP endurance racer of 2001.

Initially, a track-orientated version will be available although a road-going package will appear later in 2019. How good would that be tooling down to the local pub or visiting McDonalds Drive-Thru?

CUT IT OUT!

There is any number of oval tube electric exhaust cut-out, but Summit Racing reckon that none have all of the features of Granatelli Motorsports’ 3in Oval Electric Exhaust Cutout Systems.

One-Touch Open and Close Switch

Some exhaust cut-out systems have an activation switch that must be held down to open and close the butterfly plates. That can lead to over-torquing the butterfly shaft, which can damage the internal gears of the drive system. The Granatelli exhaust cut-out systems have a smart-chip-controlled, one-touch-switch to open and close the butterfly plates and prevent over torquing.

45 Degree Turndowns

SAFETY FIRST WITH THIS INNOVATIVE STICK

Originally invented by the Russians during the space-race as a means of putting fires out in spacecraft, the Fire Safety Stick could be a product to greatly interest kitcar owners.

After the space-race the Russians didn’t take it further and was then discovered by an Italian company, leading to the commercially available product you see here.

Unique in that it is able to extinguish all major types of fire – solid combustibles (wood, paper, plastic, textiles), liquid flammables (petrol, diesel), gases (propane, butane, methane), electrical fires up to 100,000-volts and even cooking oils and deep fat fryers. No other extinguisher can handle More >
