GAZ ‘Gold’ Race Coilover Suspension for MG ZR

The MG ZR can make quite an exciting track day car and with that in mind GAZ is producing a Gold Coilover Suspension kit for the ZR.

The system may also be useful for those kit cars based on the ZR that are now becoming popular, although it would be wise to check with the particular kit’s manufacturer for suitability.

The Gaz Gold units are both height and damper rate adjustable. Ride height is adjustable through 80mm of adjustment.

The height adjusters have a coarse acme form thread for ease of adjustment and to ensure that they remain in good order even after considerable service.

Damper rates are variable by means of an adjuster knob on the damper body. The GAZ Gold range comes with a gas cell in the reservoir filled with a high viscosity index multi grade oil to prevent cavitation and reduce fade under racing or trackday conditions.

All the units are individually tested before leaving the factory and are covered by a two year warranty.
GAZ Gold Race Coilovers for MG ZR start at £146.09 each plus VAT for the rear dampers and the whole kit of four with race suspension springs is available at £1013.58 plus VAT.

GAZ can also produce this kit with ‘road use’ valving if required.

All the units are individually tested before leaving the factory and are covered by a two year warranty.

Fidanza Lightweight Flywheel for Triumph Spitfire

Summer’s here and hopefully the current restrictions will still allow us to get a little top-down driving done before the autumn sets in. To add to the fun Fidanza, Americaʼs leading performance flywheel specialist, has a direct replacement lightweight aluminium flywheel to improve the performance of the classic Triumph Spitfire.

The Fidanza aluminium flywheel replaces the heavy standard flywheel and improves the power-to-weight ratio thus making the engine more responsive and improving performance and acceleration.

The Fidanza aluminium flywheel is made from high-quality machined 6061 T6 aluminium with a 1050 steel friction surface, CNC machined fastener holes and chamfers with military grade fasteners. The friction surface of the flywheel (shown with its green protective coating in the image) is a replaceable steel plate, so when the surface eventually becomes worn it can be replaced without requiring a new flywheel.

Every Fidanza flywheel application is a unique design that has taken into account the overall balance, critical clearances, tensile strength, heat dissipation and optimum weight saving that strikes a careful balance between reducing the original weight and maintaining a smooth idle for day-to-day street driving.

Fidanza flywheels for the Triumph Spitfire can be ordered by the following part numbers:
Spitfire 1300 1967 – 1972: 172131 RRP: $431.05 from Fidanza + shipping & Import tax
Spitfire 1500 1973 – 1980: 172151 RRP: $426.51 from Fidanza + shipping & Import tax
