Reinforcing passenger compartments

Roll cages are designed to protect the inhabitants of a vehicle in extreme circumstances, reinforcing the passenger compartment to give it additional strength. This is particularly important in racing because the high speeds can result in extremely serious collisions and even lead to vehicles flipping or rolling over. Continue reading

Which suspension option will you choose?

There is a debate about whether coilovers or spring suspensions are better, but the fact is that both systems offer different benefits and therefore outperform each other in specific situations. Springs have a simpler design and have higher load bearing capabilities because they are suspended from the axle. This means they are useful for holding heavy chassis and if the vehicle needs to be lifted regularly. They also take up less space in the wheel area. Continue reading

Increasing power and performance with heated windscreen technology

When heated windscreen technology was first introduced, it was mainly seen as a safety feature. Winter driving is made much easier with a heated windscreen, as it reduces the chances of obstructed views. The technology found its way into the motorsports arena as a result of manufacturers trying to make their vehicles lighter. Reducing the weight of a racing car increases its potential on the circuit, and as a result many components were removed from motorsports vehicles, the heater being one. Continue reading

Upgrading your brakes for superb results

Using the same vehicle on the roads and track days will increase wear and tear on many of the mechanical parts, particularly the brakes. Braking systems on road vehicles are not designed to cope with the high demands placed on them by track use. The additional speed and heavier braking can result in overheating and reduced performance, ultimately leading to more damage and higher costs due to more frequent replacements. Continue reading

Give yourself greater control over suspension

When you have a high performance vehicle, you need components and parts that are up to the task, and this includes the coilovers. These parts play an extremely important role, as they basically define the way the car connects with the road, having an effect on the way you can handle the car and the way the tyres grip the road. This makes a huge impact in terms of driving ease, comfort, speed and performance. Continue reading

Reaching excellence in your exhaust system

In terms of affordable cars that allow for speed and customisation, Ford is very much the manufacturer of choice here in the UK. Most of their models, particularly the Ford Focus and the Ford Fiesta, roll off the production line and out of the factory with a great performance level incorporated as part of the design. The ability to customise, modify and adapt the vehicle to meet your specific needs is one of the main reasons why this brand is so highly regarded by motorsport enthusiasts. The exhaust pipe is usually one of the first and most effective customisations most owners make. Continue reading

The trusted stopping solution for Time Attack cars

In Time Attack events the race cars try to beat a clock rather than each other. Every car is timed through one circuit of the track with no other cars on the track at the time. The car goes around the circuit once, runs the timed lap and then finishes with a cool down lap. Time Attack bears similarities to time trial events but differs by rules and competition formats. Whereas Time Trial has open sessions Time Attack operates a limited number of laps. Continue reading
