IT’S A FIGHTER

Nice wheel for a kitcar

MOMO has just announced its new Dark Fighter Wood steering wheel, which is a cutting edge design with a classic twist – or maybe a classic design with a cutting edge twist, depending on your point of view?

Either way it combines a style that is suited to a classic or kitcar, with a modern ergonomic design and utilises attractive and practical materials.

Naturally it has been produced in Italy from the finest materials – a combination of air leather and mahogany wood with a black ‘air leather’ centre pad surrounding the iconic MOMO Italy horn push button.

YOU SAY ‘PLUG WIRES’ WE SAY ‘PLUG LEADS’!

Plug leads take a lot of abuse, especially from engine heat as they are right there next to the exhaust, it’s the poor old spark plug boots that get it the worst. Often they’ll give up before the rest of the wire set does.

Taylor has come up with a solution. The Extreme Series ignition wires feature ceramic boots that can withstand temperatures up to 2000 degrees F, well past the point where conventional boots would simply fail. That’s a huge plus for racing and vehicles with supercharged or turbocharged engines.

Summit Racing offers two types of Taylor Extreme Series leads: ThunderVolt More >

NEW OLD FORD STUFF FROM BURTON POWER

The adaptor manifold is suitable for use on the Ford Essex V6, SOHC Pinto and Kent Crossflow GT engines. The manifold converts the carb orientation from down-draught to side-draught to avoid any bonnet clearance problems that might occur with these larger carbs.

The manifold can be ordered as Part No FV450 and retails at £89.95 inc VAT and can be ordered at the other end of 0208 554 2281 or from www.burtonpower.com ENDS.

FLYWEIGHT FLYWHEEL

Mini Spares is now offering new competition lightweight flywheels in EN24 alloy for race-spec A-Series motors. The flywheels weigh in at just 3.6kg and are available in inertia starter and pre-engaged starter versions.

EN24 has better wear and shock resistance than EN8, which can fret on the crankshaft of highly-tuned race engines. The EN8 alloy, which is widely used on flywheels, is only a medium strength carbon steel but is easier to machine and is suitable for most applications.

EN24 is more stable as it is a high-strength alloy steel (nickel, chromium and molybdenum) and provides the extra strength margin for extreme use More >
