EASY STEERING

Back in the days before power steering, large diameter steering wheels were necessary to give the driver enough leverage to manoeuvre at slow speeds.

With the advent of EZ Electric Power Steering a kit or classic car can be steered at walking pace without effort – and that means that the diameter of the steering wheel can therefore be reduced to provide a better driving position, easier entry and exit, more legroom and more direct steering.

However, rather than fit an extremely small steering wheel that could look out of place in a classic car or replica and also perhaps block the More >

BRAKING UP

They are finished in a protective black PVC cover and the end fittings are swaged together for durability and are protected with a heat-shrunk rubber cover, bearing the Cosworth logo as proof of pedigree. As you would expect of Cosworth all lines are thoroughly pressure-tested before released from the More >

A LITTLE LESS TORX; A LOT MORE ACTION

External or male Torx fasteners (E Torx) are in common use on vehicles today. The six-pointed star-type bolts offer a superior fit and grip when compared with regular fasteners and greatly reduce the risk of stripping the head during use.

Strong demand from its customers has prompted Facom to develop the 464TX range of E Torx ratcheting wrenches, now available for the very first time.

The new ratcheting wrenches offer a considerable advantage over conventional wrenches and ratchet/socket combinations. The low profile head and thin shaft are ideal for use in restricted access areas and jobs can be completed quickly because the More >

BRIDGE BUILDING!

Kent-based Wheelwright has released details of a new design from its premium AEZ range. The latest wheel to come from the German/Austrian brand is called the ‘Bridge’ and uses a range of subtle OEM styling cues to create a tasteful and understated design.

Featuring ten slender and perfectly proportioned spokes, the Bridge looks deceptively large for each given diameter. Each spoke slightly twists as it reaches the rim, adding an additional visual depth to the design. Whether fitted to a compact or premium car, the Bridge makes a perfect complement in style, with a wide range of fitments ensuring that most More >
