Mac Tools has introduced four new products designed to make life easier for the hard-working mechanic and enthusiast.

Pry bar (CPB42HD)

A GOOD STEER

The ‘Tomcat’ steering wheel from MOMO features a sculpted, ergonomic grip section that delivers improved comfort and hold in a distinctive Italian style.

The wheel is the usual 350mm at its widest but has a shorter, flatter lower half for increased leg room.

The MOMO ‘Tomcat’ steering wheel includes a ‘Tomcat’ script on the aluminium centre spokes, a full leather rim and a MOMO horn push, just to let everyone know you’ve got your hands on something special!

It retails at £190.00 inc VAT plus you’ll require the appropriate MOMO hub for your vehicle.

MURTAYA RETURNS

Tyne and Wear-based ALS Sportscars, run by Andrew and Lin Starforth, has taken over the rights and moulds to manufacture the Subaru Impreza-based Murtaya, originally launched in 2006 by Adrenaline Motorsport to a cavalcade of dancing girls, neon lights and good publicity (well, only the latter one really, but you know what I mean!) until the manufacturer imploded in 2009.

It then re-appeared under a Devon company called Murtaya Sportscars, who worked very hard to re-establish the product, which let’s face it is a stunningly capable bit of kit with staggering performance and handling ability. Sadly, pressures of their main business More >

BEST OF BRITISH CLEVERNESS

With the demand for specialist cars built to ever higher specifications inevitably higher insurance values are required to cover them. However, therein lies the problem as very often owners of such cars find it difficult to get adequate value insurance and indeed some choose to under insure in order to get on the road.

It's not just Gardner Douglas customers who will benefit from the new Canems ECU Immobiliser.

Gardner Douglas Sports Cars has teamed-up with Canems Engine Management Solutions to develop an affordable integrated tamper-proof immobiliser that locks the vehicle via the ECU. The system can only be un-locked by waving More >

A KNIFE THROUGH BUTTER

Plasma cutters used to be the preserve of the fully-equipped professional engineering operation although recent advances have seen them become more affordable and available to the DIY enthusiast.

One company doing very nicely with their range of in-house designed plasma cutters and inverted welders is Loughborough-based PlasmaPart, run by Tim Buckle and Mike Spencer.

Visually pleasing range of machines with professional levels of performance that make work with metal a cinch. Once you’ve used a plasma cutter you won’t look back and it tackles conductive materials such as steel, aluminium and stainless steel with ease.

Prior to my visit to PlasmaPart I’d never More >

A well-produced item that is supplied with all connectors and wires colour coded, offering a fuss-free solution to what can be a nightmare area for many enthusiasts. Best part is it costs less than £200.

VIPER PERFORMANCE CUSTOMERS SITTING PRETTY

You’ve seen it on the TV, but where do you buy petrolhead furniture?

Viper Performance was puzzled by that very question when they moved into their new premises recently. Eventually they found a talented British designer who could produce this type of furniture and now you can buy sofas and coffee tables just like these directly from Viper.

Viper’s own office furniture features an Alfa 157 seat and an Alfa Romeo V6 block but any similar parts could be used. The seat has been removed from the car, totally reconditioned, repaired and re-stained in a distinctive red. A special ‘suspension’ frame has More >
