New from Summit Racing – Many of today’s engines use the more accurate torque angle method for tightening fasteners, especially on critical components like cylinder heads and main cap bolts.

A Performance Tool Torque Angle Gauge will help you do that. It has an easy-to-view 360-degree scale that reads in two-degree increments so you can quickly see the exact amount of torque applied to fasteners, so you don’t accidentally overtighten them.

The gauge works with all 1/2in drive ratchets, breaker bars, and sockets. A 15in-long flexible clip arm shaft, spring clamp and powerful magnet are included.

STEVE HOLE tells the story of the GINETTA G10 and G11 models. Similar cars with a V8 engine used in the G10 and a 1800cc B-Series in the G11. Plus comes news of a G10 Continuation model from Ginetta Cars.

The news that Ginetta Cars has announced a ‘continuation’ G10 model intrigued me. I think it’s great that Lawrence Tomlinson is recognising his company’s magnificent heritage which stands at a marvellous 74 years and counting.

Certainly, even though Ginetta is one of the revered kitcar marques I still think that the exploits More >

Using a Rocket/5 Speed gearbox to English/Atlas rear axle drivetrain set up?

Burton Power has announced an upgrade to its Single Piece Competition Propshaft for Mk2 Escort RS set ups running a ‘Rocket’ or five-speed gearbox linking to an ‘English’ or Atlas rear axle.

The propshaft is built to the same specification as the original Group 1 item. The single-use propshaft is much stronger than the original two-piece item by virtue of the removal of the centre bearing and the use of larger diameter tubing in its construction.

It is suitable as a direct replacement for the original prop or for competition use More >

Getting your air-cooled VW engine purring like a kitten takes some work, but there are a few things you can do to help release the inner feline in your flat 4.

Discarding the mechanical points in favour of electronic ignition is a common upgrade, which utilises modern electrics to help prevent running problems caused by sticking contact breakers. The 009 distributor which operates centrifugally, without vacuum advance will improve throttle response and is a popular swap for those running twin carburettors.

Fortunately for us, the good folk at SSP have their ear to the ground when it comes to making products that More >
