This is probably the product that put Wo-Wo on the map. Their solvent-free wheel cleaner.

What a great name ‘Wo-Wo’ is and it refers to the detailer’s favourite ‘wax-on-wax-off’ expression. They are a really cool company who don’t make a massive amount of different products but what they do make are sought after by those that know.

Take their wheel cleaner. The 500ml bottle has a quality trigger mechanism (I hate duff ‘triggers’) and you generously cover the wheel and allow the product to dwell on the surface. For best results use a specialist wheel brush to help agitate road grime and More >


ODK Waxes produce great car care products and offer further proof that the Americans and Germans aren’t necessarily the ‘bosses of gloss.’

There are a growing number of top-drawer UK producers though and ODK is one of them. Exhibit Gloss Enhancer really impressed me and when used as a quick detailer it went on easily and came off fast but also left a dazzling amount of gloss on my car’s bodywork.

It’s superb as a quick detail product say when at a show or you can use it as a ‘topper’ to your existing regime. It really is impressive, oh and it More >

Lots of kitcar folk like to do a bit of camping. Things just got a bit easier when it comes to a good night’s sleep while out under the stars. Thanks to the marvellously-named Bundle Bed, I reckon you can chuck that irritating old air-bed and seen-better-days sleeping bag into the nearest skip.

The makers, James Clark and Lucy Bartlett, who run Bundle Beds, claim that they have the future of sleeping outdoors and a decent night’s sleep, all wrapped up in their little bundle.

It is a fully self-contained proper bed, complete with a slim, self-inflating (wa-hey!) mattress, built-in cosy duvet More >


It might well be tempting fate, but let’s hope that we’ve now (finally) left the worst of the winter weather behind us, which is all the encouragement the good folk over at Mountney need in order to begin looking forward to the looming show season.

Putting their money where their collective mouth is, Mountney has unveiled an expanded range of 12in and 13in, vinyl- or leather-rimmed steering wheels, all manufactured to the same exacting standards that the company has long been known for.

Spring is perhaps the most eagerly anticipated season of them all, particularly given how brutal the 2017/2018 winter was, More >

To get you started, some flux corded More >


Summit Racing is now stocking Oliver Racing con-rods but they advise that you don’t buy them for a mild engine build. They are pretty much overkill for engines that never see the high side of 400bhp and RPMs over six grand or so.

However, if you’re building a big-horsepower, high RPM V8 engine, step right up and get a set of Oliver rods, which are based on four principles:

Durability: Oliver uses aircraft-quality, American-made 4340 AQ material that is vacuum-furnace de-gassed and inspected for cleanliness. That means better durability and fatigue resistance.

Strength: Oliver uses a two-stage heat treatment process. The first stage is designed More >


Webcon is delighted to announce that their ‘A’ Series Crossflow Aluminium Cylinder Heads are back in stock.

Production was halted in early 2017 due to a problem at the foundry that casts them. The tooling was moved to a new, state-of-the-art facility and, almost a year later, these unique heads are once again being produced.

The ‘A’ Series Aluminium Crossflow Head allows fitment of a pair of Weber 40DCOE carburettors, or DCOE-style throttle bodies (also available from Webcon) and is the ultimate upgrade for all versions of the legendary ‘A’ Series engine.

Heads are available as below: 9900384900 Bare head c/w valve seats More >

One of the year’s most intriguing newcomers is the turbo-diesel version of the excellent Marlin Sportster.

Marlin has offered the model to suit BMW donor for many years (they were one of the first to offer Beemer mechanicals) but this is the first time a diesel version has been used.

It uses the straight six units from either the E36 3-Series or E39 5-Series and thanks to the readily available diesel tuning options power can easily be hiked without so much as laying a ratchet on the engine.

The beautifully-prepared demonstrator unveiled at Stoneleigh had 201bhp and 302 lb-ft of torque although More >
