Burton Power is now offering genuine Hepolite pistons.

The pistons are ideal for uprated Kent Crossflow 1600 engines and have +1mm deep valve pockets; they will fit most performance camshafts including ‘234 ‘and ‘244’ without any further piston modifications.

The +.110in size is perfect for +0.090in blocks which are in need of a rebore without having to go to the expense of large bore forged pistons. (711M +0.110″ with deepened valve pockets).

The compression ratio is in the region of 10.7:1 in a 1600 engine (the exact figure will depend on block height, head gasket thickness, etc). The bowl capacity is 33.77cc.

Webcon now manufactures a heatshield for use on the Weber DCOE and DCO/SP range of carburettors.

On non-crossflow engines, the carburettors are directly above the exhaust manifold. When exhaust heat rises up it can cause fuel handling problems in sidedraft carburettors. The new Webcon Heat Shield helps alleviate these problems by deflecting the heat around the carburettor.

The new shield is superbly made in the UK from 1.6mm stainless steel and is stamped with the Webcon logo to easily distinguish it from the thinner, less effective copies on the market.

The new Webcon Heat Shield can be ordered as part number 9990398700 and More >

The Little Car Company is legendary for producing beautiful scale replicas of exotic and/or iconic classic cars.

They reported a couple of years ago that they were working on a full-sized version of one of Tamiya’s most popular kits, the radio-controlled The Wild One (58050) first launched in 1985.

The ‘replica’ is called The Wild One Max, is road-legal but like the Tamiya version is battery-powered with a 14.4kWh pack that can give a 124-mile range on tarmac or 69 miles off-road. It even has a top speed of 62mph.
