THE SINGER SAID AS HE TURNED TO THE CROWD, LET THERE BE…

Powervamp Racing has announced its new range of branded workshop lights, with four in the range, which are supplied in PVR corporate red/black colours and are supplied in sealed blister packs.

The lights incorporate different features to cover a multitude of applications and have been designed for getting light into awkward spaces, where you need it most when working on the car.

The bright rubberised red casing also reduces the chance of losing the light if working at night while also giving the lamp an attractive appearance.

The prices start at just £4.55 for the 27-LED pocket model, (supplied with 3 x AAA More >

HOW’S YOUR MOOD? SOFT, INTERMEDIATE…

Here’s an interesting little item from tyre meisters, Pirelli, a set of wristbands that mark their involvement in Formula One™ and mirroring the various tyre compounds that are used by the teams.

The colours for the 2012 set have been announced as red – supersoft, yellow – soft, white – medium, silver – hard, green – intermediate and blue – wet and the only change for the 2013 season is a switch from the silver to orange on the hard compound.

The sidewall colours make it easier for the viewing public, at trackside and on TV, to see the different compounds being More >

DRIFTING ALONG NICELY

Alutec is expanding its extensive product range with their first new design for 2013, the distinctive multi-spoke Burnside wheel, which is available now in two colourways.

Fresh from setting new world records for ‘fastest car drift’ and ‘most cars drifting simultaneously’, Alutec has named their new Burnside wheel, after a famous skate park in the USA.

The Alutec Burnside features precisely moulded twin spokes and concave centre section. The diamond black and polished version is particularly eye-catching thanks to alternate polished spokes, which stretch to the rim edge while the black spokes dish slightly to the inner rim.

The Alutec Burnside is available More >

TAKE THE METRO…

Exciting new model from Sylva Autokits is the J15M, effectively a heavily revised J15 chassis re-engineered to accept MGF components.

This innovative development makes use of the affordable MGF, which makes great sense for kitcar use as everything is in place on the donor, especially as the Rover two-seater is now so affordable and any known iffy spots such as front sub-frame won’t be needed for the J15M build.

Although fundamentally a good car, the MGF was always felt to be too heavy lacking a bit of dynamic appeal, when compared to such as the MX-5 and MR2, but remove the parts More >

GETTING THE RIGHT START

Now available from Powervamp Racing are these super high performance Powerlite starter motors.

PowerLite High Torque Starter Motors save weight, improve performance and maximise your chances of starting your car first time around as they are twice as powerful so they run faster and start the engine regardless of temperature or compression. They draw about half the current of an original starter motor thus putting less strain on the battery.

Weight can also be reduced up to 50 per cent from conventional starters and they are usually smaller and easier to fit than the standard starter component.

Many of the starters regularly fitted More >

LIGHTWEIGHT HEAD

Webcon has just announced a new aluminium cylinder head for the MGB. The original cast iron head was heavy and prone to cracking, whereas the Webcon alloy version is exactly

the same as the original in its five-port layout but being made from aluminium it is some 60 per cent lighter and doesn’t have a tendency to crack.

Being the same in all other respects means that customers can use their old valves or stock replacements, torque the head up to the same values and use the original head gaskets as recommended for the cast iron head.
