Land Rover Defender

An audio install for a beautifully modified Land Rover Defender. A specialist vehicle enhancement company with over 40 years modifying Land Rovers came to us for quality sound without compromising space in this classic and iconic vehicle. We have opted for a 8″ Rockford Fosgate Punch shallow sub woofer in

On Track On a Budget

In our quest to do everything the hard way, we want to build a track bike for under £1000. Yes, it may have been possible to just purchase a complete bike for that money, but we are planning to have a properly prepared track bike with upgraded suspension, exhaust and

The Epitome of a Practical Classic Sports Bike

When the Honda FireBlade hit the market in 1992 it changed the world of sports bikes forever, but over 25 years on how are these bikes to ride today? An original FireBlade will set you back silly money, so we looked a little newer for a slice of the 90s

Jeep Cleanup

The hedge Jeep birthday present has progressed nicely since we released it from its Shropshire bushy prison. Having initially unlocked with the remote and fired up no problem in the hedge, the old jeep was now running for 10 seconds and stalling. Two seconds of googling revealed this to be

Just Enough Essential Parts

Dilemma. What to get my Petrol Head Partner for his 30th birthday. Funds are limited as all money has been put into the drift machine. Hmmm. Dilemma. Our wannabe Landrover is absolutely hanging. It’s well over half-way to the moon with 180,000 miles on the clock, it’s been abused off-road, used

Thinking about doing a Track Day?

So, you think you like driving huh? Whether you own a Porsche or a Prius, driving on track is a fantastic experience and is actually pretty accessible. No you don’t need to own a Caterham 7, donate your right arm to an insurance company or buy MSA approved flame-resistant underwear. You

Twin Cam Win Cam

Having chosen our project car we thought the difficult choices were done for the moment. Then we started looking into what engine to fit. Rather than waffle through the entire thought process I’ll pull out the highlights. Nissan Skyline RB26- Massive kudos, 6 cylinder turbo noise; what’s not to like? Nissan

Hel of a stop

The mighty Nissan Silvia project needed some brake lines, so we gave our good friends at Hel Performance a call. Steel braided hoses can improve brake pedal feel, meaning when you put your foot on the pedal more of your effort goes into stopping, instead of bulging the brake hoses.
