SCOTTISH BIRD OF PREY

There’s always been strong interest in kitcars in Scotland. Crikey, I remember the Kit Cars & Specials Action Day we held at Knockhill circuit back in 1987, which enjoyed a bumper turnout.

The boys and girls at the Scottish Kit Car Club do a grand job too, while latest kitcar manufacturer, Scottish Kit Car Centre, aren’t exactly newcomers as they’ve been building and restoring a variety of cars for several years, while they are also dab-hands at engine building, too. Current Super 1600 Rallycross champion, Russ Simpson’s car was powered to victory by an SKC-prepared engine.

FORD V8 LINKAGE FROM WEBCON

IT’S POLISH; NOT A SECRET

CödeClean, makers of premium car care products, has announced their unique and highly anticipated, Ultra Fine Polish.

This paint cleanser, three-years in the making, incorporates a moderate level of fine abrasives. Ingeniously though, as the polish is used (preferably by machine), the abrasive particles within the compound break down into increasingly smaller elements, giving a finer polishing action the longer you use it.

These clever active ingredients mean customers are only required to purchase one polish, as opposed to a selection of different polishing cutting compounds and can tackle even the most difficult paintwork with just a single application, thus saving time, More >

HIGH TEMPERATURE GASKET PASTE

Here’s a great idea that was originally developed for the turbo market but is now finding favour in other branches of racing, tuning and engineering.

DEI’s Gasket Solution is a grey anaerobic paste that seals metal-to-metal gaps up to .005in ( 0.1mm) in size and provides resistance to low pressures immediately after assembly of flanges. After curing, it is able to withstand high temperatures, high pressure, vibration and moisture.

Formulated to provide excellent adhesion to steel, the most common applications include head to exhaust manifold, manifold to turbine housing, manifold to wastegate, and turbine housing to downpipe. Other form-in-place gasket applications can More >
