B&G HELPS YOU ROLL MORE EASILY

Flexibility is the name of the game and this versatile Folding Pit Trolley from B-G Racing has it by the cart-load (sorry! – Ed).

The trolley folds down to take up minimal storage space but is spacious enough to transport wheels, tyres and tools around the pit garage and workshop.

It features two fixed and two swivelling wheels and can be pulled by hand or attached via a uni-ball towing hitch to the boss in the handle, allowing the trolley to be towed by a paddock vehicle or quad bike.

The pit trolley is manufactured from high-grade mild steel with a silver-grey powdercoated More >

FIND YOUR ‘FORTE’

Autosport GP Engineering, based on the Kent coast and run by Darren George, offer their take on the iconic GT40 called GT Forte, which is designed to be an affordable build.

Access to 3D CAD and other advanced processes means that the chassis tubes are all laser cut and literally slot together just requiring welding. This, of course, guarantees accuracy. A build manual is supplied with the kit package, as you’d expect but, each customer is provided with a log-in to a shared online folder where technical bulletins, drawings, pictures and other useful information is posted and shared instantly among the More >

RACY BRAKES

Brake calipers are quite an emotive subject. Most kitcar owners like to upgrade their brakes to either nice billet items or at the very least paint them using high temperature paint. This can work well, although some of the paint used leaves a bit to be desired and soon get dirty or look unsightly with chips all over them.

Several companies can offer help in this area such as Brake Caliper Specialists of Long Eaton. They can refurbish your calipers for you, by dismantling, shot-blasting, painting and re-assembling them and as they realise that a car without brakes is pretty rubbish More >

KEEP COOL

Celsus, the European distributor of Dynamat, are reminding customers to look carefully at the benefits, as well as the specification and performance, of noise control systems.

High levels of noise or heat are accepted to increase stress, fatigue and discomfort. This was long regarded as a problem to be suffered with certain vehicles, until Dynamat set out to create automotive solutions with their USA-made products.

Dynamat Original was launched in 1989 to reduce noise caused by automotive structural vibration. The thin, flexible, easy-to-cut-and-mould sheet used an extensional damper technique to convert vibration. Since then, the product has gained distribution in over 50 More >

WASH WITH MACHINE MART

A pressure washer is a great device and can be effective on all manner of car and household chores not to mention the fiver a pop you’ll save at the petrol station jet washer.

The Clarke Jet 8000 and Jet 9000 pressure washers from Machine Mart will do a job for you and won’t break the bank. The 2400-watt Jet 8000 has a 6-litres per minute flow rate, with the Jet 9000 displacing 2600-watt and flowing at 7.75-litres per minute.
