SNOW EXPECTED!

 

One of the best pre-wash snowfoams on the market, in my opinion, is Iron X Snow Soap and is related to the South Korean company’s Iron X fallout remover.

Snow Soap was formerly known as Snow Gel and once your vehicle has been decontaminated will help it resist iron particles and grime although it has the added benefit of being used as a foam and fired at your car via a foam lance or you can also just apply it directly to your wash mitt a la Meguiar’s Wash Plus.

It is pH neutral and offers high lubricity and like its iron More >

WOBBLY WHEELS NO MORE

You know how it is. You’re balancing a wheel on the hub or on the studs and as the road wheel wobbles about, it can be very fiddly getting the wheel bolt or nut to start threading squarely without cross threading or disappearing into a deep recess.

This wheel nut locating wrench set from Laser Tools (part number 7037) makes life easier –just use one before the standard wheel nut socket and torque wrench to squarely locate the nut or wheel bolt and spin it up hand-tight.

The set includes four locating wrenches – three commonly used standard hex profiles, 17, 19 More >

YOU WON’T STARVE WITH SUMMIT RACING

Fuel starvation due to fuel starvation or lack of baffling in the fuel tank can be a big problem, where sudden changes in direction and G-forces can uncover the in-tank fuel pump and allow it to suck air. Bad things occur when that happens.

Adding a FUELAB Fuel Surge Tank System will prevent that from happening. The system keeps a small reservoir of fuel available at all times and uses an internal pump to supply the proper volume of fuel even when the main fuel pump poops out and can only deliver a small amount.

Made from billet aluminium, the FUELAB Fuel More >

COLOUR FOR YOUR WHEELS

For all its many plus-points the world of motorsport can at times feel at little po-faced, staid, and whisper it, serious.

The good news is that Speedline Corse (the company’s specialist motorsport division) has set out to make the paddock and service area that bit more vibrant through its latest innovation, a Custom Colour Programme, one which can be applied to any one of the alloys, which make up its expansive motorsport range.

It’s worth taking a little time to inspect Speedline’s motorsport range in greater detail as the likes of the Speedline Type 2120 (the ‘Turini’ to its friends), Type 2118 More >

A KIT COMET? IT’S ALL THE RAGE!

A brand that I’ve always watched closely is Rage Motorsport. Founded back in the year 2000 by twin brothers, Steve and Adam Gentil, their beautifully-made off-road orientated buggies became the mainstay for many driving experience companies up and down the land – and beyond.

Originally based in Bedfordshire, the company changed hands in 2016 and is now to be found in Wombwell near Barnsley. Although primarily to be found being used on muddy surfaces they have a roadgoing range, too.

In addition, after many years supplying their cars in kit form for the North American market they have decided to dip their toe More >

POP IT ALL IN YOUR CAMPING TRAILER

We’ve all seen these little trailers that can be towed behind your kitcar. Quite frankly most of them leave me cold. However, when Michael Hough’s email pinged into my inbox recently I sat up and took notice.

A pattern maker by trade, with a lot of time spent working and living in The Netherlands, Michael identified a need for a small trailer that could be practical and lightweight and easily towed behind a kitcar or any car, for that matter.

Spend any time driving around in Europe and you’ll regularly see small box type trailers or if you’ve spent any time in More >
