FOLIATEC® has been making car wrapping films for years and has made quite a success of it – most of those beige taxis you see all over Germany are wrapped in FOLIATEC film. But when it comes to DIY use most of us shy away from film. The idea of wrapping a film around complex curves just seems too complicated (actually it’s not, but that’s another story).

So, a while back, FOLIATEC came up with a spray-on version of their film that anyone who can use a spray can of paint will find user-friendly. Now, they have taken things a step More >


Jenvey Dynamics has just launched its new electronic throttle actuator. The unit is highly modular, making it compatible with a large range of aftermarket independent throttle body (ITB) kits for road or race applications, and offers precise control over throttle actuation to help optimise induction systems.

It provides durability, size and weight-saving advantages over OE alternatives and, at just £495, is also cheaper and more robust than complex, bespoke fly-by-wire variants. “We have identified the need for a highly configurable, fit-and-forget electronic actuator that is good enough to be used in international race series, yet is more attainable than often complicated, More >


Bulletproof internals create a foundation for high-power engines. In standard form, Ford’s 4.6-litre modular V8s are excellent engines.

However, if an engine builder wants to upgrade to high performance cylinder heads, or add nitrous or forced induction, the engine internals may be pushed beyond their design limits.

To solve this issue, Scat has just introduced ‘Scat Packs for the 4.6-litre unit that are made to withstand the extreme stress of a high performance engine. They are complete rotating assemblies.

At the heart of each kit is a crankshaft and H-beam connecting rods forged from 4340 steel, plus a set of forged aluminium pistons. More >

The original Cosworth YB plenum did not supply an even distribution of air to each cylinder, meaning that while one cylinder’s mixture is fine, another could be rich because it is getting less air.

This becomes more critical with increased performance of the engine. Burton Power’s modified plenum uses a high air-flow venturi design to supply an equal amount of air to each cylinder resulting in power gains of 10-25 bhp depending on the engine specification.

The plenum has been machined with ‘O’ ring sealing joints for both manifold and throttle body faces and made from a strong alloy casting, which will More >


This dual pocket ratchet from Laser Tools (part number 6074) is very handy at just 70mm long, and features two separate ratchets: ¼in drive plus a magnetic hex bit driver.

Plenty of stuff going at Mills Extreme Vehicles. Let’s start with the electric news…

MEV-boss, Stuart Mills, is a keen follower of electric vehicles and recently decided to go down the electric motor route with his Charger concept. Typical of Stuart, he hasn’t hung around and the car is road-legal…I hope he puts it into production.

Definitely destined for production is the Mk2 version of the big-selling MEV Rocket, which became an ex-MEV when Road Track Race ceased trading last winter. Things are a little hush-hush at the minute but Stuart tells me that the Mk2 will become a reality, a new More >

Caterham Cars has appointed two new UK dealers to broaden the geographical reach of its network across the country.

Oakmere Motor Group in Cheshire and Williams Automobiles near Bristol have been signed up to sell Caterham’s full range, with demonstrators already in place at both dealerships.
