Cryogenic engine treatments

When putting more power through an engine you need to ensure that every part will perform at its optimum.

One of the motorsports favourite techniques to improve the durability of an engine is a process know as cryogenic treatments.

As you can guess from the use of the word Cryo – it involves the cooling and heating of the engine block to temper the metal changing its structure.

Suspension settings, lowering and stiffening

On the track your priority is fast cornering and suspension plays a large part in this. Track conditions are quite forgiving and you can make some compromises like using hard suspension and lowering the car for optimum aerodynamics and a low centre of gravity.

This works well because tracks are fairly flat and you do not have a carrier bag full of eggs in the car from your return trip to the supermarket.

Tuning boxes

Tuning boxes are often slated because there are so many rip off devices around. We look at the truth about tuning boxes and help our readers identify the piggy back ecu’s that are worth having. What does a piggy back ECU do? How do they work and are they worth buying?

Alloy wheels and their impact on handling and performance.

Some rally style alloy wheels are lighter – (less weight = more speed) and also are designed to increase the cooling of the brake disks.

Some designs hold up better to being curbed than others and some break very easily when hitting a pothole or curb at speed.

Always go for the best quality alloy wheel that you can afford and read the reports and reviews. If you do go for a different overall size you must get the suspension and tracking realigned to avoid uneven wear under acceleration.

Quick shift gearstick quickshift kits

Being able to change gear as quickly as possible can make a big difference in time critical situations like drag racing and even track day racing.

The slowest component in any car is the driver and there is little that can be done to improve that. A quick shift kit will help to give you the competitive edge by enabling faster gear changes and allowing more ‘feel’ by reducing play.
