BE IN CONTROL

Brown & Geeson Ltd – the UK distributors of RaceChip – has announced the arrival of the new RaceChip XLR electronic throttle control, which allows the response and sensitivity of the accelerator to be controlled precisely.

Although the new XLR features some design changes and visual differences to the original throttle response control, the big difference is inside. The XLR now utilises completely new software that is much more sensitive to the response of the throttle.

The XLR utilises an all new nerve-centre called the ‘Brainbox’ which plugs into the throttle pedal, is mounted in the car’s footwell and is controlled via the More >

PHEW, THAT’S A RELIEF!

The summer in the UK might be short but the hot weather can certainly do some damage to your vehicle’s engine if you don’t keep your cooling system in good shape.

Fortunately, the solution is simple. Just add a bottle of DEI Radiator Relief™ to your coolant and your vehicle’s operating temperature will be reduced by up to 30°F the maker’s claim (16.66° Celsius).

Engine wear will be minimised, the temperature gauge needle will stay away from the red section when sitting in summer traffic jams and you won’t be bothered by an overheating radiator ruining your day out.

NEW HOME FOR A LEGEND

 

GKD Sportscars has sold the excellent Legend project to Steven Bruyninckx from The Netherlands.

Steven is a diehard BMW enthusiast and owns a classic 635 6-Series and was actually going to buy a Legend kit to build as he had access to an old E36-generation 3-Series. However, as often happens he ended up buying the whole project from GKD boss, Peter Lathrope, who, as it turned out, was looking for the right person to take the project on.

UK customers will deal with Steven obviously, who intends to be present when kits are collected, but all the engineering and technical stuff will be More >

TODAY’S THE DAY THE TEDDY BEARS HAVE THEIR PICNIC …

One of the most widely held and stubborn of national stereotypes is that the Germans simply don’t have a sense of humour, something we’re now able to disprove once and for all through the Ronal (one of Germany’s most beloved wheel makers) alloy range. The proof in question? Well, it’s the Ronal URS of course, a wheel better known by its somewhat inevitable nickname, the Ronal teddy bear. Ronal is now able to offer the wheel in a new, 14in size and in a choice of colours, making it well worth considering if you want a break from the lines More >
