    Fake components.

    Just watching a programme on the t.v. about cheap import parts from China. It's about replacement air bags, brake discs & alloy wheels. Some of the results are quite alarming. It was highlighted initially by a find of thousands of fake air bags for Honda cars found in the U.S.A. All I can say...

    Upgrading your pride and joy.

    So often I see posts from young lads who ask for tips on how to make their car go faster. If I see them my standard reply is normally along the lines of making your first upgrades to the brakes, suspension and tyres etc. There's a reason for this and it's not just because I'm a boring old fart...

    Is anyone interested ?

    Whilst building another engine today i wondered if any of you lot would be interested in some tech stuff along the lines of using plasti-gauge to measure the clearance on crank bearings, measuring and gapping piston rings etc ? Unfortunately i didn't take any phots as my brainwave didn't occur...

    Modifying your car? Please think carefully about what you're doing

    We have had a car on one of the ramps in the workshop, it has been modified and it has won shows. I can't say what the car is, who owns it or anything like that except that it is not a GTO. It came to us for a mechanical problem which needed fixing. The reason for this post is just to get your...
