NO MORE WONDERWALL JOKES

Wonder Wheels Original wheel cleaner has been around for years and although these days caustic and aggressive-smelling products aren’t as popular as they once were with new-fangled ‘bleeding’ fall-out removers being the new big thing.

However, Wonder Wheels is still pretty effective at removing road dirt, grease and a variety of other crud like pesky brake dust, although I’ve also found it to be particularly effective at removing carbon from chrome-type exhaust tips (we’ll be doing that test in a future issue of TKC Mag).

The instructions on the bottom actually advise that you should remove the wheels so as not to More >

TIC TAC TOE!

Measuring ‘toe’ is quick and simple with the B-G Racing Aluminium Toe Plates.

Simply rest one of these high-strength, lightweight plates flat against the tyre on each side of the vehicle and use the 3.5-metre magnetic tape measures provided to accurately measure the toe.

Kicked-out bottoms hold the plates flat against the wheels, while the tapes feature strong magnetic ends that attach to the slots to securely hold the tapes in place while working.

They are produced from T6 aluminium with a durable black powdercoated finish and priced at £107.99 inc VAT. A protective carry bag is available separately to keep the Toe More >

TWENTIES-INSPIRED THREE-WHEELER

With around 450 Pembletons sold it could be described as a successful three-wheeler (there is a four-wheeler variant too) and it remains available, which is good. A delightful little trike that conjures up the spirit of twenties motoring.

The man behind the Pembleton kits is Phil Gregory although when I was asked about three years ago by his son, Guy if I felt that there was a market for a high-quality fully built-only version of the three-wheeler, it took me about a split second to tell him ‘do it’.

Since then the operation has been slightly revised with Phil concentrating on the More >

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 >
