CLASSIC PROTECTION

Classic Valvemaster – the fuel additive that saves kit classic cars from ethanol-rich petrol especially with the advent of E10 petrol in the UK from September 1.

When it comes to liquid engineering, internal combustion engines rely on quality oil and quality fuel to run efficiently. Over the years, however, tightening emissions regulations have forced changes within the petrol industry and altered the formula of standard fuel.

Leaded petrol disappeared from UK forecourts at the turn of the millennium, E5 biofuel was standardised in 2019, and in September 2021 the recipe of standard grade unleaded petrol is changing to double the content More >

FANCY A SET OF CUSTOMISED DAMPERS?

The GAZ range of off-the-shelf applications is pretty extensive. However, if by chance, GAZ doesn’t list an application for your vehicle (or you require something more specialised) then the company can produce custom made suspension kits to customers’ own specifications.

GAZ can use donor hubs and totally recondition them prior to precision welding them to brand new struts. When strut inserts are required, GAZ will produce new units from scratch to the customer’s specifications inclusive of adjustable ride height, adjustable damper rates and lowered, uprated, suspension springs.

OIL COOLING

Merlin Motorsport chock full of Laminova Heat Exchangers – these are an alternative and very effective way of cooling your engine oil. In basic terms, the Laminova is a billet aluminium housing that is connected to the oil lines and the coolant (water) lines.

The oil circulates around the outside of the housing and core while the water passes through the centre of the core. The oil temperature is usually greater than the water temperature, so the water draws the heat from the oil.

The Laminova has many advantages: they are more compact than using a conventional air-to-oil cooler meaning it can More >

‘TIMMY TURBO’ JOINS THE AK FAMILY!

AK Sportscars’ new demonstrator (nicknamed as one would expect by co-director, Wendi Freeman – she calls it ‘Timmy Turbo’) could well be one of the most powerful Cobra replicas thus far seen in the UK.

Rated by Jon Freeman as producing between 800-1000bhp, the company’s new demo car is sure to etch a perma-grin on the face of anyone who drives it. However, although it most definitely is RAPID, the car is proper old school in terms of looks and finish.

Visually, the only real clue that anything special is going on here is the slightly lipped rear arches to allow for More >
