When a fastener is buried in the engine bay (or any other inaccessible area), and you just cannot get a screwdriver or hex key onto to it, try this innovative new 10-piece Low Profile Offset tool kit (part number 6709) from Laser Tools.

To offer maximum access in really confined spaces, each driver is flat steel with a 15° angled head; they are 15mm wide at the end coming down to just 10mm at the driver head. The depth of the driver bit is 8mm, which securely fits the fastener, whether hex or screw, and the 105mm length gives terrific leverage.

It’s no secret that Pertronix knows its way around an ignition system. So, when it debuted their new Digital HP Ignition, it was pretty obvious that it was going to be good.

According to those that have sampled it, the HP set-up is good. Really good. It packs over 187-millijoules of spark energy, which Pertronix says is 30 per cent more than comparable ignition boxes.

What’s more, the Digital HP’s microprocessor-controlled, capacitive discharge design produces multiple sparks twice as fast as the competition, all the way to your engine’s redline. That means better spark timing for improved combustion, which helps produce more More >

Wolfrace’s position with the UK’s massive wheels aftermarket means that it’s perfectly placed to offer wheel lines from other manufacturers, often on an exclusive basis. ATS is a case in point, and those looking to own an especially capable set of aftermarket alloys could do a lot worse than consider the German firm’s offerings, specifically the Street Rallye, an alloy directly adapted from the firm’s competition grade offerings. 

The Street Rallye draws on classic motor racing styling and multi-spoke design aside, the wheel can be had in a wide selection of finishes intended to really drive home its motorsport ethos; Matt More >

A Side-Bike Zeus!

There we were on the French Autoroute near Nancy last Saturday morning cruising at about 130kph when my attention was grabbed by a rapidly approaching object in my rear-view mirror.

Now, my ‘antenna’ for specialist vehicles is pretty fine-tuned as you can imagine but I really couldn’t make out what it was, even though I knew it was very different. A car? A bike? No, a bit of research at the service station down the road, revealed it to be a German product called a Zeus Side Bike…

In essence a motorcycle powered by a 1.6-litre engine from a Peugeot More >
