Welcome to totalkitcar online

A VERY warm welcome to totalkitcar online … with the inevitable march of the electric motor news this week that Caterham Cars recently revitalised by their acquisition by Japanese company VT Holdings.

This move has created the funding to launch a zero-emissions version of the Seven. It won’t just be a case of ‘same but different’ as they won’t just be swapping out a Sigma or Duratec engine and replacing it with an electric motor.

The suspension and areas of the chassis will be revised to allow for the different demands of a More >

STEERING COMMITTEE

NICE WHEELS MATE

If you are building a Cal Look Beetle there will be a few wheels on your wish list and the BRM will no doubt be one of them.

Originals were made from magnesium and now change hands for thousands per corner, but there is another way…

SSP has captured the spirit of the seventies perfectly in their tribute to this classic rim. Manufactured in a more durable and cost-effective alloy, they still sport a ‘wide 5’ stud pattern, measure 5 x15in and have a slightly more favourable offset of ET14.

Finished in matt black with silver highlights they have a purposeful performance look More >

PINS AND NEEDLES

New from Rally Design is this neat alternative to the traditional bonnet pin kit. The receptacle assembly mounts to the bonnet and aligns with pins attached to the slam panel. On closing the bonnet, the receptacle automatically latches positively to the pins, it can only be released by pressing the centre button.

Originally manufactured in the USA, beautifully made but very expensive, there are cheap copies out of China, which are not stainless and very badly manufactured.

Blackline has continued its valued reputation of producing a top-quality part at a mid-range price level.

BUCKET LIST

This is one to cross off your bucket list! Manufactured from heavy-duty, high-grade stainless steel this 12-litre bucket (part number 5929) from Laser Tools is far stronger and easier to clean than plastic or galvanised buckets.

The advantages over plastic alternatives are numerous: this stainless-steel bucket can tolerate very high temperatures, so can be used for combustible materials such as ashes, etc – very much stronger than plastic and of course, fully recyclable.

There is another big advantage – the spun manufacturing construction means no seams — therefore this stainless-steel bucket is more hygienic and easier to clean, making it suitable for More >

MK GET RAW

Never a week or month goes by without news about MK introducing a new product or acquiring an existing one.

Well, news this week is that the Rayne, Essex-based company has taken over the range of models formerly produced by Raw Striker, which in recent years have faded from view although have always remained available.

This brings the Striker, Phoenix and Fulcrum under MK Sportscars’ control using the ‘MK’ name rather than ‘Raw’.

Fulcrum

The trio of new arrivals join the MK Indy range and various elements of the old AB Performance business as well as the Kit Car Direct operation under MK’s control.
