EXCLUSIVE EXCLUSIVE EXCLUSIVE – DJ SPORTSCARS’ ‘DAX’ COBRA REPLICA RANGE UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP

 

The DAX Cobra range (incouding de Dion, IRS etc etc) formerly made by DJ SPORTSCARS INTERNATIONAL has been acquired by John Kox. For over 21-years John has traded in his native Belgium as DAX BENELUX and sold many cars and kits during this time. DJ, aka DAX, has been one of the UK’s leading kitcar manufacturers for nearly 40-years and this move sparks an exciting new chapter in the marque’s history with plenty of development planned for the DAX Cobra and with well over 3000 kits sold this is good news for existing owners. John has lots of exciting plans More >

DUNCAN COWPER AND HIS DAX RUSH F1 TURBO WIN TEN OF THE BEST 2017 – WOO HOO!

I’ve known Duncan Cowper for more years than I care to remember and the one-time DJ Sportscars employee and DAX Rush stalwart has had a succession of bonkers versions of that model over the years and thanks to his exploits must have been responsible for a good chunk of the 1200 or so sold since Jürgen Möhr’s design first came to the UK in 1991.

WE HAVE LIFT OFF!

It’s no secret that Pertronix knows its way around an ignition system. So, when it debuted their new Digital HP Ignition, it was pretty obvious that it was going to be good.

According to those that have sampled it, the HP set-up is good. Really good. It packs over 187-millijoules of spark energy, which Pertronix says is 30 per cent more than comparable ignition boxes.

What’s more, the Digital HP’s microprocessor-controlled, capacitive discharge design produces multiple sparks twice as fast as the competition, all the way to your engine’s redline. That means better spark timing for improved combustion, which helps produce more More >
