badly dubbed

So, what do you think of the new, slightly smaller format of the magazine we launched a few months back? Did anybody even notice? I though I’d give it a while before mentioning it, to give you all a change to get used to it. It’s quite possible some of you didn’t even notice, as the pagination still remains the same as does the amount of content, we’ve just made the magazine ever-so slightly more compact in its appearance. Why? Well, smaller gadgets are cooler, right, so why not the magazine? I must admit, I don’t normally like change and when the publisher mentioned the new format I was initially a bit on the fence, but seeing the magazine in print I’ve got to say I absolutely love it. It…

sport utility

Being your own boss can, at times, be a recipe for admin-fuelled grief, but it’s a position with a long list of perks when you get it right. It’s a route to making the would-be nine-to-five fit around you; setting your own hours, deciding what you want to work on and calling the shots on how you want to do it. Perhaps most importantly, it’s also an opportunity for some of us to sidestep the run-of-the-mill company cars and vans and factor in the biggest perk of all; the shop truck. There’s certainly nothing run-of-the-mill about Dave Goodwin’s choice of workshop wheels, but then the same applies to his working life. An automotive trimmer with over 22 years of experience under his belt, including stitching hide at the Aston Martin factory…

give us a ‘p’

Every now and again you spot something online that stops you in your tracks, and these new wheels from German firm, Retrorad did just that. A modern take on the classic Pirelli P-slot wheel, these bad boys are diamond cut with black inserts to mimic the classic 14/15” wheel from the early 80s, but these are available in 8.5x19” ET45, so will fit most new wave 5x112 models. Even the centre cap is aluminium so that, too, could be diamond cut. We like the fact the screw to hold this in place is hidden in the ‘d’ of the Retrorad logo. Price at 1690 Euro a set (which includes worldwide shipping) we’d say they’re an absolute steal. When we spoke to Manuel at Retrorad, he mentioned they’re also hoping to…

new balance

This exciting new product from Rally Design has taken some time to develop. The interaction between the detent knob, gearbox ratio, potentiometer and LED display was difficult to achieve, as it was important that one click of the detent knob revealed a new LED light in the display. Anyone who has seen a driver, with his head in the foot well, trying to determine the position of the balance bar bearing within the brake pedal will see the value of this innovative product. The kit itself includes ⅜ UNF and 7/16 UNF drive cable adaptors, 700mm drive cable, 20 LED display/digital circuits and a 12v input power. display/digital circuits and a 12v input power.

A very special guest took his place at the wheel of the fully-electric Volkswagen ID.R race car at the Nürburgring recently: Nico Rosberg, 2016 Formula 1 world champion! Nico took the 500-kW (680-PS) electric race car for a spin at the Grand Prix circuit in the Eifel region of Germany. Rosberg, who is passionate about electromobility, has invested heavily in future technologies since retiring from Formula 1. Among other things, he founded the Greentech Festival – an event focused on sustainability topics. The 35-year-old is particularly fascinated by companies with innovative solutions and more sustainable concepts in the field of mobility. Rosberg stated later on his social media channels that the car had the kind of performance he had only ever experienced before in Formula 1. While the weather gods…
