V-Maxx’s busy team of engineers have been at it again – this time perfecting and tailoring a range of effective chassis upgrades for the now criminally affordable Toyota MR2 Roadster.

This kit is a direct replacement for the model’s factory springs and has been designed to work effectively with the OEM dampers – or any quality aftermarket offerings. Fitting all of the 1.8-litre engine variants, it’s a great way to get any MR2 sitting and handling better.

As this car is now used as the basis for many kitcars, it’s also an essential when trying to make your car look believably Italian, More >

2015 has been a good year for the Lazer Lamps Triple-R lighting range. Officially launched in the spring.

Now, less than six months later, Lazer Lamps has announced two exciting developments that it feels will make the Triple-R range even more popular within the marketplace.

The first is that the Lazer Lamps Triple-R 750 duo of Standard and Elite models have been granted E-mark certification and are therefore fully legal for use on public roads. Production of models with the all-important E-mark on the lens commenced immediately, so that availability would be assured immediately after this announcement.

Each model possesses over five times More >


Sebring boss, Phil Overall (left), with race engineer, Geoff Kinston, who has devised new suspension and geometry for the Sebring International range of Healey replicas.

A recent announcement saw the arrival of BMW E46-generation 3-Series as donor options, which will, I’m certain, prove popular. Phil is also More >


Gloucestershire-based Forge Motorsport has been at the forefront of engineering-led tuning improvement for decades, but not many enthusiasts know about their bespoke fabrication division. Although the mainstay of Forge’s output is beautifully CNC-machined and hand-crafted production items, there also exists a small, but talented team that can crate literally anything for motorsport, specialist manufacturing or prototyping purposes.

Working from the latest Solidworks 3D CAD software, or even ‘a rough sketch off the back of a fag packet’, these talented alloy artisans can produce anything as a one-off. Whether it be a set of titanium wheel nuts for a Bugatti EB110 or More >

For years, Weber 50DCO/SP carburettors have only been available as left-hand or right-hand units, with the outer throttle shaft ends blanked off.

This works well with a conventional distributor ignition system, but as mapped ignition systems have become more widely used, so the demand for a throttle position sensor fitment on the 50DCO/SP has grown.

In response to this demand Webcon has developed a new, unified 50DCO/SP that features throttle shaft at both ends of the carburettor and will allow fitment of a Webcon DCO/SP throttle position sensor kit. Part number 1965000700 can be used for LH or RH fitment, and is More >


Powerflex has just released a new suspension bush for the Caterham 7 de Dion rear suspension models, with or without a Watts linkage.

PFF8-201 Front lower wishbone bush uses a low friction design, while the polyurethane bush holds a low friction bearing that rotates around an accurately machined stainless sleeve.

This combination lets the wishbone pivot effortlessly, thus allowing the damper and spring to work without the added force generated by the original rubber bush loading up. These bushes have a retail price £95.52 inc VAT.
