Euro Car Parts, official prime battery supplier to the RAC, has launched a new range of Lithium Ion motorcycle batteries by leading European distributor Landport (LP).
Sure to be very appealing to kitcar drivers with bike-engines powering their cars, the new range was originally developed for racing. The super-light LP Lithium Ion batteries weigh between 0.4kg and 1.5kg. This represents a massive weight saving over standard lead acid motorbike batteries, which generally weigh around 4-5kg but can be as heavy as 8.7kg.
Thanks to an innovative design, featuring four terminals instead of the usual two, just eight part numbers cover virtually every More >
Edelbrock’s Elite II Series air cleaners and valve covers build upon the legendary Elite Series launched in the 1980s. Made from heavy-gauge diecast aluminum, they have a classic raised fin design with blacked-out fin recesses for added visual punch.
Designed to fit most common carburettor configurations, Edelbrock’s Elite II Series air cleaners come with a black anodised nut to complete the installation. The air cleaners feature Edelbrock’s exclusive Pro-Flo air filter, which is washable/re-usable for a long service life.
Each filter has a handy Pro-Charge™ strip that indicates when the filter is ready for cleaning. Replacement filters are also available separately. Elite More >
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 >

On many V8 engined applications that use Weber 48IDA carburettors, clearance above the carbs can be very limited and this can sometimes prevent the use of the standard 56mm air horns.
Webcon’s new reduced height air horn is just 33mm high so ideal for applications such as Ford GT40 and replicas (the auxilliary venturi height will need to be reduced to suit the new air horns).
The new Webcon 33mm 48IDA air horn wears part number 5284051200 and priced at £30.31 inc VAT each.
They are available directly from Webcon UK on 01932 787 100 or via www.webcon.co.uk ENDS.More >
Foliatec Carbody Spray Film – the quick and easy to apply spray-on alternative to automotive wrapping film has been joined by a new accessory for Spray-Film.
It’s a sealer that is ideal for the permanent sealing of Spray Film and binds with the Spray Film product to protect it against damage but also facilitates easier cleaning.
Not only does it provide the Spray Film with extra protection against dirt and abrasion, but the increased layer thickness eases the removal process (if required) by allowing removal in one continuous sheet rather than pieces that need to be picked off.
