EVO Magazine

EVO Magazine is the premier car magazine for high performance cars.

The writing is the better than anything else I have ever read from any other magazine by a big distance.

The photography is exceptional without exception.

The stories are always interesting, car reviews usually take place in some sort of context.

And in recent months the layout and appearance of the mag had taken a quantum leap forward from a position where it was arguably already the leader.

In short no other car magazine comes close to the reviews in EVO Magazine and to cap it all, the magazine is also reviewing more modified cars which is something that really makes the mouth water.

In short, EVO Magazine is well worth the price of a subscription if you are even remotely interested in cars.

Akrapovic

Akrapovic is a manufacturer of performance exhaust systems based in Slovenia.

Along time manufacturer of performance exhaust systems for motorbikes and has now moved into making exhaust systems for cars.

Akrapovic exhausts are made from titanium which means huge weight savings are available but power gains could be seen as disappointing.

Hugely expensive but excellent quality

From the Akrapovic website

An exhaust system looks simple at first glance. But a closer look shows that it is a complex system that has a significant effect on the performance of a racing or a regular sports car.

The experience in racing that we acquired over many years, taught us how to combine high performance, a long-life cycle and the lightest possible weight. Our numerous world championship titles and countless international and national titles are a testament to our continuous ability to fulfil our clients’ highest expectations.

Demon Tweeks

Demon Tweeks are probably the largest dealer of performance car parts and motorsport equipment in the UK.

Demon Tweeks specialise in mail order sales and their yearly product catalogues are the most comprehensive of any company in the industry.

Although the Demon Tweeks part business was built on the back of their mail order catalogues they now have a website which has an even larger range of parts than their paper catalogues.

From the Demon Tweeks website

OUR HISTORY – Demon Tweeks was established and founded in 1971 by Alan Minshaw to service the needs of the Motorsport Competitor. Alan, an accomplished racing driver since 1958 and former motor trade salesman, identified the opportunity to supply everything the racer could need from one source. His principles of offering top products, quality, service and rapid availability are as important to Demon Tweeks today as they were in the beginning.

D2 Racing Sport

D2 Racing Sport Website

D2 Racing Sport is a Taiwanese manufacturer of performance suspension and performance brake kits.

D2 Racing Sport offers a variety of coil over suspension systems to suit many uses. Their range starts off with “Street” and climaxes in their “Racing” suspension kit which utilises remote reservoir technology.

Many D2 coil over suspension kits come with camber adjustment by way of adjustable top mounts. D2 products have proved to be very popular throughout the world both for the quality of their product and the price.

D2 use a modular system for their coil over suspension systems which greatly reduces the cost some rebuild time. Unlike many coil over suspension kit manufacturers D2 utilises a system where all the major components are separate from the main damper unit.

Although this does make D2 suspension kits heavier than kit from other companies it does mean that instead of requiring a rebuild the damper cartridges are simply replaced. If you have ever inquired about getting your TEIN suspension kit replaced you will know what we mean when we say they are not cheap to rebuild.

Another benefit of the modular system that D2 uses is that parts can easily be replaced if the unit is damaged at all. The top bottom and centre sections are all separate on a D2 suspension kit which means if you damage the bottom mount you do not need to buy a complete suspension unit, you simply replace the part that is damaged.

D2 big brake kits have been popular for many years. D2 offers probably the largest range of big brake kits on the market today, both with regards to the variety of discs sizes available and also in the number of cars that are covered by it’s application list.

Unlike most companies which use a 4 piston caliper, D2 front brake kits start with a 6 piston caliper. The greater the number of pistons the more even the pressure across the brake pad giving more effective braking.

For their 330mm and bigger kits, D2 uses 2 piece brake discs which save considerable weight versus one piece discs used by most big brake kit manufacturers for this size.

D2 brake kits come complete with all mounting hardware required to fit and the packaging and instructions are first rate.

Big Brake Kit

Big Brake Kits

Big Brake Kit Manufacturers at StrikeEngine.com – Big brake kits massively improve the stopping power of whatever they car fitted up to. Big brake kits use brake pads with a larger surface area which improves the braking power and also increases the leverage of the caliper on the discs. More braking power less pressure required on the brake pedal. Big brake kits will massively improve the driver’s confidence.  Big brake kits come with all parts required to fit including performance brake padsperformance brake discsbrake lines, brackets,calipers and in some cases fluid.

Fuel Injectors

High Performance Fuel Injectors – Manufacturers

High Performance Fuel Injector Manufacturers – On modified engines especially cars which have been fitted with an aftermarket turbo or turbo kit, larger fuel injectors are a necessity to ensure your engine runs safely and with maximum power. Fuel injectors are and electrically operated switch which regulated when and how much fuel enters the combustion chamber. Fuel injectors are mainly mounted on the inlet manifold but direct injection is becoming more popular now where the fuel is injected directly into the combustion chamber and extremely high pressure.
