Low profile tires
Performance gains from low profile tires. We look at the pros and cons of fitting these and list the advantages and disadvantages of low profile tires.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.Sports ignition coils and performance coil packs
Lets look at the job of the coil in the spark system and see what it does.
Just as a power transformer converts mains 240 volts into a usable 9 volts for your charger or appliance a coil will increase the voltage.
A car battery/alternator will produce a paltry 12volts, certainly not enough to jump an air gap and create a spark.
An ignition coil raises the voltage in some installations between 20 and up to 40,000 volts and this allows the creation of a spark which can jump the air gap between the plugs.Superchargers – A guide to supercharger kits benefits vs disadvantages
Superchargers offer the promise of substantial power gains with very few drawbacks. So lets look at the growing popularity of supercharger kits and see what its all about.
A supercharger is quite simply an air compressor which helps push more air into an engine. These are driven by a belt from the engine effectively creating pull on the engine sapping up to 30% of the engines power.
