Seals Plus Direct (SPD) is one of those companies that the specialist car industry can’t really do without. As the name suggests, they specialise in rubber seals although they do offer much more than that. Think rubber or silicone extrusions, expanded neoprene, white PVC cord, flocked lined window rubbers, and glass door seals, to name but a few of the 800 product lines they keep in stock. Actually, the total of stock and non-stock part numbers they have access to is closer to 10,000!

Kit and specialist cars play a significant part in the business although are dwarfed by classic cars More >

Modern head and neck restraint systems do a great job in reducing head and neck injuries caused by the whiplash motion generated during an impact. An issue most restraints don’t address is concussion prevention. Bumpy tracks, a bumping a guardrail, or other low-impact events can be enough to cause a concussion or other brain injury, even if you’re wearing a helmet (which you should).

The Meru Safety Ascent Carbon Brace is designed to protect your neck and reduce the chances of getting a concussion. It features Meru’s Inertia Dampening System (IDS) that uses a speed-sensitive dampener mounted on the Ascent’s hinged collar More >


XCS Designs makers of the Dieci and XCS 427 have announced a new model. Sort of…

A new drift cart is available for order now and looks like amazing fun.

“It came about from a crazy idea we had in the workshop one morning. We built one and customers that have come to see progress with their 427s have ordered one, so it looks like we have a new model. Order one now for next Christmas!” XCS boss Harvey Rice told me.

Silicone couplers are popular for attaching air intake tubing to a throttle body. However, if you’re looking to turn up the boost on a turbocharged engine, a coupler will have a tendency to pop off. In this case, an HD clamp is the way to go. It provides a more secure connection with less chance of leaking precious boost pressure. Vibrant Performance’s Throttle Body Transition Flange and Bosch DBW Throttle Body Adapters make it easy to use a clamp to keep things secure.
