New product – Fidanza Lightweight Aluminum Flywheel for 1988-1992 Audi 80 & 100

Looking for an affordable, yet spirited, track day car that also gives you a reasonable amount of comfort on the road? How about an Audi from the late Eighties to early Nineties? An Audi 80 or 100 maybe?

To give it a bit more performance off the line and through the gears a lightweight Fidanza flywheel would be the way to go.

Fidanza flywheels are machined from the highest quality aluminium and manufactured to deliver optimum tensile strength, heat dissipation and weight reduction. Their lighter weight helps improve off-the-line launchs and power pickup after changing gear, but Fidanza is careful to avoid the flywheel becoming too light. Each Fidanza flywheel is the product of careful calculations and extensive testing to ensure the formula is precisely right for the individual application.

Benefits:
• High performance and lighter weight to free additional horsepower
• Military grade fasteners for reliability and strength
• Bolt-on replaceable friction plate – no need to replace the compete flywheel when the friction surface
eventually wears out
• Stepped dowels
• Billet aluminium body
• Replaceable hardened 1050 steel ring gear
• Faster throttle response
• 40-60 percent lighter than stock for quicker acceleration
• Heat treated friction plate for optimum grip and long life

Fidanza flywheels for the 1988-1992 Audi 80/100 can be ordered as part number 112151 directly from www.fidanza.com at $425.87 (plus shipping and import tax).

New Product – Webcon EFi Upgrade Manifold for Ford Kent Crossflow

If you are looking to upgrade a Ford Kent Crossflow engine to EFi, Webcon has the ideal manifold for you. The Webcon MW4230 manifold will allow a Webcon Retroject Throttle Body to be bolted directly onto a Kent cylinder head.

The manifold can also be used to fit Webcon 32/36 DGV/DGAV, 38 DGAS/DGMS and DCD carburettors to a Kent engine. It comes with mounting points and a water jacket ‘hot spot’ for this purpose, although these won’t be needed for an EFi conversion as the ECU will handle the temperature and the Webcon Retroject uses the original Ford throttle linkage.

New Product – Mini Spares Bulkhead Soundproofing Insulation for Classic Mini RHD Injection Models

If your classic Mini has been getting a bit hotter and noisier of late, it would be worthwhile examining the soundproofing insulation on the engine bulkhead. It can often deteriorate over time and turn into a crumbly mess. Mice also find it particularly delicious!

Thankfully, Mini Spares can come to the rescue with a perfect reproduction of the original type of fireproof bulkhead sound-proofing foam insulation that was fitted to new injection Minis back in the day.

Order as ETD101580 for the right hand drive version at £38.88 inc VAT.
Similar bulkhead insulation is available from Mini Spares for other Minis and left hand drive versions. See Minispares.com for details.

New Product – Mini Spares Battery Bar and Fitting Kit for Pre 1990 Classic Mini Models

Fortunately, Mini Spares can now offer a complete battery retaining set to fit pre 1990 Minis which had shorter battery bolts.

The kit can be order as HAM2457FK at £39.88 inc VAT.

New Product – GAZ Adjustable Front Dampers for Saab 900

The Saab 900, with its double wishbone suspension at the front, puts a lot of stress on the dampers. Thankfully, GAZ Shocks produce a damper ideally designed to withstand such stresses.

GAZ GT Dampers provide variable bump and rebound rates which can be adjusted to suit the conditions and driving style. The damping rates can be altered by means of an easily accessible knob on the side of the units.

All units are individually tested before leaving the factory and are covered by a two year warranty.

GAZ GT front dampers for the Saab 900 retail at £70.69 each plus VAT

New Product – GAZ Coilover Suspension for Rover Coupé Turbo

The Rover 220 Coupé Turbo of the Nineties is reckoned to be the fastest ever production Rover. Boasting a top speed of 150 mph (241 km/h) and a 0-60 mph time of 6.2 seconds (according to a 1992 Autocar test) it’s a pretty quick car even by today’s standards.

However, after all this time, it’s unlikely that the handling and suspension performance will be up to the same standards so GAZ shocks is now offering an adjustable coilover kit for the Rover 220 Coupé Turbo (and the naturally aspirated 220 Coupé).

Ride height is variable by means of height adjusters with coarse acme form thread for ease of adjustment. Damper units are zinc plated to ensure that they remain in good order even after considerable service.

Damper rates are also variable by means of an adjuster knob on the damper body.

All the units are individually tested before leaving the factory and are covered by a two year warranty.

The GAZ Coilover Kit for the Rover 220 Coupé & Coupé Turbo retails at £658.21 plus VAT per kit.
