DETAILING MEISTERS

MASTER PEDALLER

New Aluminium Billet Pedal version (V2) from Optimum Balance Products is sure to appeal to kitcar enthusiasts.

The original version has proven very popular already but the Cambridgeshire company that is proud to say ‘Made in England’ has enhanced the pedal box with a unique pedal design and the three pedals adjust up and down and from side-to-side.

The accelerator linkage has also been upgraded with a high-grade aluminium ball-joint that delivers reliable and accurate inputs that should withstand any tough conditions you can throw at it. While obp’s engineers were at it they also amended the accelerator’s return spring.

WHEEL OFF

The B-G Slim Line Quick Release enables the user to remove and/or replace a steering wheel with a push of a button and a twist, and has the advantage of being just 26mm in depth.  That’s half the depth of the standard Quick Release, making this device suitable when the distance between the driver and the steering wheel is critical.

It is produced from the highest quality aluminium for maximum durability, and features a push pin and twist lock system to prevent unintentional unlocking.

The B-G Slim Line Steering Wheel Quick Release System is compatible with most aftermarket steering wheels including those More >

HEALY NOT HEALEY…IT’S AN ENIGMA

Regular kitcar showgoers may have noticed the re-appearance this season of the Healy (their spelling not ours!) Enigma, which first hit the scene in 2006 before disappearing again.

The team behind the car, Martin Williamson (original importer of the Sebring International range to the UK, back in the day), Mick Snell and Joe Lamberti have been busy re-inventing it, converting it from the original Ford Granada mechanicals and Ford Cologne V6 power to Mazda MX-5 mechanicals.

Although Joe has taken a step-back, it was he who originally approached MG Rover with the idea resulting in board-level meetings with a view to making More >

DON’T SIT ON THE FENS

Gary Downes of Ford-performance specialists (nice line in Ford Ka Zetec transplants), Fenspeed has been in touch to bring me an update on his Fenspeed Sprint LSIS kit, which made its one and only show appearance at Newark in 2012.

The intervening period has seen a lot of development to the package, with a shift from Ford mechanicals to Mazda MX-5, now underpinned by a round-tube TIG-welded spaceframe chassis, with the body featuring aluminium panels except for the GRP nosecone (ally option).

Although the Sprint has been designed with Locost-inspirations, the quality of the engineering raises the profile nicely. Gary says that More >

IMPRESSIVE NI…

Hosetechnik, the performance braking division of Forge Motorsport, has released a clever and incredibly effective new product onto the market; stainless steel brake bleed nipples.

The firm has engineered the product from aerospace grade material, after an overwhelming number of requests from its dealers and end-users to create a ‘fit and forget’ solution that could be used to replace the OEM parts on most modern brake calipers. On many European cars however, these applications can go back as far as the 1970s and beyond.

Each pack contains four 10.1mm stainless nipples, preventing the future possibility of corrosion, and making fluid changes and More >
