THREE IS THE MAGIC NUMBER!

The designers at Calibre Wheels are not exactly a timid bunch. Never ones to shy away from cutting-edge design, the latest design from the leading wheel house takes a look backward for its inspiration and a look forward for its finish and styling. Stand by your beds, the THREE SPOKE is making a comeback as the look for 2013, apparently.

Anyone who remembers the trend the first time round can recall just how good it can look when executed to perfection (think Brabus and Saab as two great exponents of the craft.) The CR-III balances perfectly proportioned spokes with superb pseudo More >

IT’S ALL ABOUT CORRECT POSITIONING

Jenvey has announced the TP11 Throttle Position Sensor based on the successful motorsport items produced by Variohm.

EASY STEERING

Back in the days before power steering, large diameter steering wheels were necessary to give the driver enough leverage to manoeuvre at slow speeds.

With the advent of EZ Electric Power Steering a kit or classic car can be steered at walking pace without effort – and that means that the diameter of the steering wheel can therefore be reduced to provide a better driving position, easier entry and exit, more legroom and more direct steering.

However, rather than fit an extremely small steering wheel that could look out of place in a classic car or replica and also perhaps block the More >

BRAKING UP

Put simply, your brakes are your life, so it pays to choose reputable components when uprating a brake system. With a long history and numerous achievements it all forms of motorsport there cannot be many names more reputable than Cosworth.

The company has now produced their own brand of stainless steel brake lines.

They are finished in a protective black PVC cover and the end fittings are swaged together for durability and are protected with a heat-shrunk rubber cover, bearing the Cosworth logo as proof of pedigree. As you would expect of Cosworth all lines are thoroughly pressure-tested before released from the More >

FIRST SCREENING

Stylish new windscreen option for Tiger GTA

Tiger Racing launched their full-bodied GTA model at Stoneleigh in 2011, which also offers Tiger Avon owners the opportunity to re-body their budget Lotus Seven-inspired as the GTA fits on the same chassis.

Adding to the GTA’s appeal is a newly-announced windscreen option that looks way cool with Tiger’s own cast alloy ‘screen uprights, with new Perspex® wind deflectors.

A three wiper set-up keeps the windscreen clear and helps with driver vision during inclement weather conditions.
