‘DUB-YAH’ PLATE FROM WEBCON

Despite being over forty years old the Ford Essex 3-litre V6 is still a popular and potent engine for classic Fords, kitcars and hot rods alike.

Unfortunately, age also brings with it the problem of OEM parts becoming obsolete. One of these is the carburettor ‘W’ plate, which is essential to ensure the fuel-air mixture is evenly distributed to all six-cylinders.

For quite some time owners have had little option but to source secondhand ‘W’ plates, but now Webcon has come to the rescue with a faithful reproduction of the original part. The new part has the benefit of being made from More >

THUNDERSTRUCK

Edelbrock has announced a new Rollin’ Thunder camshaft for Chrysler 426-572 HEMI® engines.

Edelbrock Rollin’ Thunder hydraulic roller camshafts are designed to improve horsepower and torque, produce a great sounding performance idle and provide sufficient vacuum.

YOU NEED SPACE

A comfortable and ergonomic driving position is vital for safe driving, both on the road and on the track.

The ergonomic driver to wheel distance may be difficult to achieve with aftermarket seats and steering wheels and the fact that some racing classes now demand fixed position seats.

B-G steering wheel spacers are designed to bring the steering wheel closer to the driver for improved steering input and driver comfort and are multi-drilled for both 6x70mm and 6x74mm PCD bolt patterns to accommodate the majority of aftermarket steering wheels.

The two-bolt patterns allow the spacers to be used as a hub spacer and/or More >

GOODRIDGE HOSES FOR CLASSIC MINI

The original Mini is one of those rare cars that blurs the boundary between the car world and the real world, no mean feat when its decidedly humble origins are taken into account. The 1960s saw it become about as fashionable as is possible for a small, mass-market car to be, a truly classless icon that was just as at home in Mayfair as it was in Middlesbrough.

The Mini lived on long after the sixties though, into the decade that taste forgot and then the go-getting 80s. It soldiered right on through the 1990s and was only finally replaced at More >

I BADLY WANT ONE OF THESE!

A product that had fascinated me for a while turned out to be as exciting as I hoped once I got the chance to check it out at first hand at last week’s Race Retro stand, where GaugePilot was sharing a portion of exclusive agent’s, Holden Vintage & Classic’s stand.

Taking styling cues from the classic Speedmaster display, GaugePilot is a digital version from two UK engineers, offering a staggering 32-channels of data. It’s the ultimate onboard information system for classic, motorsport and of course, discerning kitcar owner.

A crystal clear LCD non-reflective display, fitted into a period-looking unit (polished or crackle More >

NEW KIT FOR ‘BUSA

Superb new Suzuki Hayabusa engine kit launched last weekend at Race Retro by product development specialist’s Vetech, based in Buxton, Derbyshire. The rapid prototype experts have re-packaged the Hayabusa, complete with gearbox, into a 1299cc monster delivering 190bhp and have come up with a ‘plug and play’ package to suit the Classic Mini.

Courtesy of the company’s fiendishly clever drive system that incorporates reverse gear along with a Q      uaife ATB limited slip differential, packaging is first class.
