IT’S A WRENCH, MAC!

Mac Tools has introduced two new additions to its impact wrench range: the 3/8in drive AWP038, and AWP050C, a compact version of its ½in impact wrench nicknamed ‘The Daddy’.

The AWP038 packs a mighty punch for its size, producing 525lb/ft (712 Nm) of torque, dwarfing its nearest competitors by a considerable margin. Vibration levels are also well below those of its rivals. The AWP038 was developed by the brand’s global product team to include the market-leading features of the larger AWP050 ½in impact wrench. It boasts the same feather throttle and over-moulded grip for maximum operator control, as well as one-hand More >

CATCH IT…AGAIN AND AGAIN

A surge tank (or swirl pot) is an important part of any electronic fuel injection system as it stops your engine from suffering fuel starvation.

Under harsh driving, fuel is thrown from side-to-side of a fuel tank and this can leave the

fuel pick-up sucking in air rather than fuel. A surge tank however, enables your pump to

continuously pick-up fuel and never have to worry about starving your engine of its lifeblood.

Viper Performance’s new surge tanks have a 1.5-litre capacity, and come with a selection of

barbed and AN fitments to suit most applications. The tank size is 115mm diameter and

200mm tall with More >

IT’S ALL ABOUT TIMING…

Most Impreza owners don’t need to be reminded of the importance of changing the timing belt on their engines at the correct service intervals. However, if you have modified, or even just remapped your engine (because it’s fitted into a kitcar perhaps), then something a little more than standard specification parts may be in order.

Cosworth, one of the most trusted names in automotive performance, has just released a pair of Timing Belt Service Packs for the Subaru Impreza – one for models up to 09/2002 and one for cars produced after that date.

Each pack consist of:

1 x Cosworth Kevlar™ Timing More >

RADIATING HEALTH

Cambridge Motorsport Parts are now offering hand-made aluminium radiators for classics and classic racecars.

The aluminium radiators are made to order only, with a production lead time of 3- 4 weeks and they offer significantly improved cooling due to their aluminium construction and modern core design.

Weight saving is also said to be reduced, typically by 50 per cent compared to the original copper brass type. The rads are nicely detailed and finished in either a satin/brushed or highly polished finish.

Cambridge Motorsport Parts hold patterns for Aston Martin, Austin Healey 100/4, Jaguar XK120/140/150, E-type Series 1 3.8/4.2, Series 2, Series 3 V12, More >

FOR HIRE…CATERHAM SEVEN!

With the nation looking forward to hosting the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics, there has never been a better time to celebrate all things British.

So says Caterham Cars, which kicked off its annual Hire-a-7 season recently.

And, with everyone including the Government getting behind a campaign to get more Britons holidaying here in the UK, the ‘staycation’ is set to make a roaring comeback, with sales of UK-based holidays already nine per cent higher than last year, apparently.

With prices from £175 for a single day or £325 for two days’ hire and full weekend hire also available, what better More >
