TRICKY MICKY PERIOD CORRECT
Get a decent adrenaline hit without having to jump the car over your back fence — the 2017 Sea-doo Spark Trixx puts you in control of a Rotax 900 HO ACE engine inside a body with fun at its core. The VTS feature lets you exaggerate how high you can raise the nose or how deep you can bury it in the water, making tricks easier than ever before. Poltec material design also allows for improved manoeuvrability by reducing weight to deliver peak performance — the colour-in moulding makes it more scratch-resistant than fibreglass, too. And for when you need to slow things down in a hurry, the second generation IBR system lets you stop sooner. The 2017 Sea-doo Spark Trixx is available from JFK Powersports for $12,899 — go to jfks.co.nz for further information. It’s the details that make the difference, and selecting the wrong set of wheels for your classic can be a real blunder. Vintage Rims has the ability to make any wire-spoke wheel that your heart may desire. It already supplies lock ring, beaded, rolled and split rims, and the team can now copy an original centre into a 3D model and cast the design from molycarbide, before CNC machine–finishing it. Moulds are available for Stutz, Packard, Studebaker, Horch, Isotta, Rolls Royce, and Rockne. Vehicles sporting Vintage Rims wheels have won Peking to Paris, Best in show at Pebble Beach, plus many races and other shows.
