EQUILIBRIUM’S NEW BALANCE – AND OWNER!

Equilibrium’s Sonic7 is a very impressive kit

Equilibrium Kit Cars has a new owner in the driving seat, as Michael Farrow takes over from Angus and Kate Weijers, who have stepped back from the business to focus on their ever-expanding family.

Mike was in the running to purchase the Sonic 7 design back in 2015 from original designer Stuart Mills of MEV Ltd, but was just pipped at the post by Angus Weijers, who went on to form Equilibrium Kit Cars Ltd.  Enthusiasm for the company’s Sonic 7 undimmed, Mike went on to be Angus’ first buyer of a full kit, and More >

JEWEL OF A SHAMPOO

Jewels is an interesting little UK car care brand based in the North-East and I like their Ruby Shampoo which has an incredibly pleasing Cherry Bakewell smell (you don’t know just how much I LOVE that) that has an equally incredible dilution rate of 1900:1.

For the record, the standard for these sorts of products is 800-900:1, so a few squirts of product into my bucket (don’t forget your grit guard) and standby for a vast amount of suds and bubbles.

It is easy to apply and feels slick and drag-free to use and left my car’s bodywork feeling very smooth, while More >

E-TYPE FLYWHEEL

This one is really aimed at the Jaguar E-type although given that there are lots its XK straight-six engine in use in kitcars, so I thought it had to be in!

Fidanza has announced a new replacement lightweight flywheel for the engine which offers faster throttle response and quicker acceleration, additional horsepower to the wheels (reduced parasitic losses), smoother, faster gear-shifting, easier braking, better slowing (due to reduced rotational mass), reduced clutch wear and improved efficiency (from better heat dissipation), cost savings and longevity (thanks to Fidanza’s replaceable green friction plate – no need to replace the entire flywheel when worn), More >

BUMPSTICK HELPER

The pushrods’ main job is to transfer the motion of the camshaft’s lobes to the valves. They also help with lubrication for many engines by acting as a portal to move oil from the lifter valley into the cylinder heads.

Nobody understands this better than the high-performance pushrod specialists at Trend Performance. Made from 4130 chrome molybdenum, Trend’s one-piece pre-formed, centreless-ground pushrods are perfect for oval track and drag racing, hot rods, kitcars, muscle cars and even marine use.
