BRIGHTER LIGHT

A new range of 100 per cent brighter xenon HID upgrade bulbs from Ring, the automotive lighting experts, offers drivers with xenon HID technology fitted on their vehicles a better, safer night time driving experience.

Compared to a standard xenon HID, they put up to 100 per cent extra light on the road, to get more illumination exactly where the driver needs it. This improved visibility makes it easier to see hazards, reduces eye strain, and, when combined with the high colour temperature of xenon HIDs, gives excellent reflections from signs and road markings.

BULLETPROOF CLASSIC MINI HOSES

Mini Spares has noticed that most of the standard rubber coolant hoses that are available seem to have a much shorter life expectancy than you would want. If you’ve ever tried it you’ll know you don’t want to fit radiator hoses to a classic Mini engine that often! The solution was for Mini Spares to develop its own brand and reinforce it with KevlarÒ- the same material that is used in the army’s ballistic vests and helmets. You can see the KevlarÒfor yourself – it’s the white strands visible at the ends of the hoses.

IT’S REGULATIONS

Webcon has announced the introduction of a range of anodised aluminium EFi regulators, in a quality anodised finish that complement the blue and red versions already available.

The regulators are technically the same as the existing versions but are visually more appropriate for a ‘business-like’ natural-metal engine-bay theme. They are supplied complete with a mounting bracket and 8mm push-on unions.

Prices as follows:

Pressure Part number 2.5 bar WFR225 £87.49 inc VAT

3.0 bar WFR230 £87.49 inc VAT 3.5 bar WFR235 £87.49 inc VAT 4.0 bar WFR240 £121.47 inc VAT 4.3 bar WFR243 £97.37 inc VAT 4.5 bar WFR245 £121.73 inc VAT 0-5 bar More >

BLOWING A GALE, LIKE A COMET, A NEW RAGE!

Joining the Comet and Hurricane from Rage Motorsport is an as yet un-named new model, which will follow the Barnsley company’s tried and tested formula of a lightweight buggy with a powerful engine.

Like the Comet R, which is available in kit form the new one also features a Kawasaki ZZR-1400 engine delivering a cool 200bhp meaning that performance will be blistering. I’m told that it will have a name and that pricing will be set within a few weeks.

SPECIAL BREW

One of my favourite car care brands is CarPro UK and their range features some supreme products covering most aspects of car detailing. Stuff like Iron X, Perl, Hydro2 and Cquartz.

One area that they didn’t have a product was a quick detailer but they’ve just filled that with the introduction of EliXir, easy-to-use, high gloss spray that came about thanks to devout CarPro enthusiasts, budding chemists, who wondered ‘what if’ when they would often mix Ech2o and Cquartz together to create their own hybrid ceramic detailer.

The manufacturer listened and refreshingly came up with a specific product for the purpose in More >

1664? NAH, FIFTEEN52, THAT’S WHAT YOU WANT!

US wheel brand Fifteen52 has gathered a cult following in their homeland ever since being established in 1996. For UK enthusiasts attracted to their styles, it was always a bit tricky to get hold of them, until now.

There’s now a UK outlet based in Crediton, Devon but shipping all over the UK and Europe. Six styles are currently available in a variety of sizes and offsets and the thing about them is, you’ll swear you’re familiar with them, but actually, they are pretty original.

They take some of the best wheel designs ever committed to alloy and mix them up a bit. More >

MINNIE DRIVER? EH?

Tiny, tiny screws! Always a massive pain in the backside! When one chances upon them there’s a damn good chance that you don’t have a screwdriver to undo them. Am I right?

You’ll end up trying to force a screwdriver that’s inevitably too big into the screw cap and then curse when you can’t get any torque to undo it. We’ve all been there.

That’s where Matador steps in with the latest Mini Screwdriver 4-in-1 Pen tool. Maintaining their usual craftsmanship and high standards of quality that the German brand is renowned for, this extremely handy little tool features a pair of reversible More >

HEAT. QUICK

Quick Heat is specially formulated to get the heat from your engine into your heating system faster in frigid climates. The product does two things… it gets you warmer, faster and melts ice and frost from windows more quickly.

It is safe to mix with all types of anti-freeze. Simply pour one bottle into your radiator/cooling system and feel the warmth.

What Quick Heat does, to get a little technical, is reduce the surface tension of the coolant in your system and stops tiny bubbles from forming (cavitation); this increases the efficiency of the transfer of heat from the coolant to your More >

BETTER BREATHING ROVER V8

Webcon has offered a Weber manifold for the Rover V8 engine for some time, but with two carburettors positioned on each cylinder head this has proved a little too high for some applications.

Now, Webcon has revised the design and positioned the four Weber IDF carburettors in a line along the manifold between the heads, much like the early Aston Martin V8, creating an overall lower profile.

The manifold comes complete with linkage, cable and a stud kit. Order as part number MM4473 at £2038.80 inc VAT. A complete kit with four carburettors will be released later in 2019.
