LIQ­UID IN­TEL­LI­GENCE

Cool­ing sys­tem giv­ing you grief? Whether you suf­fer over­heat­ing is­sues, or head gas­ket fail­ure, Liq­uid In­tel­li­gence have a so­lu­tion. Its 115 wa­ter­less coolant has been de­vel­oped for ul­ti­mate pro­tec­tion un­der ex­treme run­ning con­di­tions, and is suit­able for all wa­ter-cooled en­gines re­gard­less of make, model, or age — rec­om­mended es­pe­cially for vin­tage and clas­sic cars with no pres­sure cool­ing sys­tems.

For any head gas­ket is­sues, Liq­uid In­tel­li­gence 245 Blown Head Gas­ket Re­pair may be used. When poured into the cool­ing sys­tem at 5-per-cent con­cen­tra­tion and al­lowed to cir­cu­late, its unique for­mula works to form a sealant be­tween the hot metal sur­faces of the head and block.

Visit liq­uid­in­tel­li­gence.com.au, or call Shane at 03 313 0400 for more in­for­ma­tion.

BOOM AND ROOM

Ever wanted bass and boot space in the same car? Well, that’s no longer a car-au­dio para­dox, thanks to the Zeroflex ZF262 mi­cro slot-port sub en­clo­sure. The small­est ported en­clo­sure in New Zealand, this lit­tle beast plays right down low while us­ing only one-third of the boot space of a nor­mal 12-inch sub. The Zeroflex ZF262 fea­tures dual six­inch subs, han­dles 200rms, and is hand­made right here in New Zealand.

With a $399 RRP, the Zeroflex ZF262 is avail­able at all good car-au­dio stores na­tion­wide.

RACE-DAY SAFETY DI­RECT DRIVE — NO BELTS

If you’re se­ri­ous about your work­shop, you’ve got to be se­ri­ous about your gear. The Nova Voy­ager DVR Drill Press is the most ver­sa­tile drill press on the mar­ket, built to han­dle wood, metal, plas­tics, and glass. It com­bines proven tech­nol­ogy — vari­able speed, con­stant torque, and DVR Di­rect Drive with no belts or pul­leys — with some great new fea­tures, in­clud­ing in­tel­li­gent Adap­tive Con­trol soft­ware that al­lows you to pro­duce op­ti­mum con­di­tions for your spe­cific projects.

With no belts to change, you just dial up the speed you want. It makes a con­ven­tional belt-change drill press look vin­tage! The Nova Voy­ager DVR Drill Press goes for $2799 at Car­batec — visit car­batec.co.nz or call 0800 444 329. There’s noth­ing scarier for a driver than the pos­si­bil­ity of fire break­ing out within their ve­hi­cle, and al­though many carry a small hand-held ex­tin­guisher as stan­dard, a proper fire-sup­pres­sion sys­tem is the go. DJ Safety’s Cold­fire Sys­tem uti­lizes a de­ter­gent-based fire-sup­press­ing agent that quickly ex­tin­guishes fire and pre­vents re­flash, and is non-caus­tic and wash­able, un­like the pre­vi­ous halon sys­tems. It leaves vir­tu­ally no residue and is safe on the en­vi­ron­ment, and, best of all, not only can it save your life but your ve­hi­cle’s life, too.

GSS Per­for­mance stocks a huge range of Cold­fire kits and ac­ces­sories to suit any kind of ap­pli­ca­tion, with a re­fill sta­tion avail­able in house. Give the team a bell on 09 525 6858.

PRE­MIUM LIGHT­ING

Rip out your old in­te­rior lights and chuck them in the rub­bish — Narva has in­tro­duced its all-new in­te­rior per­for­mance 12V LED globes. Th­ese not only pro­vide a brighter light out­put than tra­di­tional globes but they also come in four dif­fer­ent colour op­tions: day white, cool white, warm red, and cobalt blue. For easy fit­ment, the new globes are non-po­lar­ized, mean­ing that they can be con­nected in any di­rec­tion in the globe holder with­out the risk of short­ing out, and, for added peace of mind, all globes are cov­ered by a three-year LED war­ranty.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, head to narva.co.nz, or con­tact your lo­cal dis­trib­u­tor for pric­ing.

HUM­BLE TO RUM­BLE

Want your Holden to go from hum­ble to rum­ble? Eastern Au­to­mo­tive Per­for­mance Cen­tre has you cov­ered, as New Zealand’s only au­tho­rized Walkin­shaw tun­ing shop. Whether you want a mild in­crease in the form of a cold-air in­take or a full-blown boost cour­tesy of a Walkin­shaw WP230 su­per­charger kit, you know where to go.

The Walkin­shaw Cold Air In­take is man­u­fac­tured us­ing a low-sheen, high-heat ABS ma­te­rial de­signed to match other un­der-bon­net parts. In ad­di­tion to pro­vid­ing sub­stan­tial per­for­mance and fuel econ­omy im­prove­ments, the VE/F in­take in­creases in­duc­tion noise, so you know when you put your foot down.

GRUNT

GOT THE Have you ever bought a pair of speak­ers and won­dered why they aren’t much bet­ter than the ones they re­place? That’s be­cause you ain’t got the power! You need a good am­pli­fier to run speak­ers well, and the Zeroflex NZ4120 packs some se­ri­ous power to get the job done. Boast­ing 120rms at four chan­nels, or 350rms with two bridged chan­nels, it’s one of the grun­ti­est four-chan­nel amps on the mar­ket.

The Zeroflex NZ4120 has a rec­om­mended re­tail price of $449, and is avail­able at all good car-au­dio stores na­tion­wide.

EN­HANCED FOR­MU­LA­TION Zinc and oil go hand and hand, and Gulf Western’s Syn-X 3000 10W-40 SN/CF semisyn­thetic and Pre­mium En­ergy 10W-30 SN/ CF semi-syn­thetic (205-litre drums) are now for­mu­lated with an ad­di­tional 30 per cent zinc anti-wear ad­di­tive. Zinc is a po­lar mol­e­cule, so it is at­tracted to steel sur­faces. The zinc re­acts un­der heat and load, form­ing a phos­phate glass film be­tween the two metal sur­faces that pro­tects the metal. That means you are get­ting added pro­tec­tion from the mo­ment you start your en­gine all the way up to, and in­clud­ing, op­er­at­ing tem­per­a­ture.

Kicker’s QS se­ries crossovers al­low you to use a sin­gle am­pli­fier chan­nel, or use bi-am­pli­fi­ca­tion for even more flex­i­bil­ity and con­trol.

Scratch re­sis­tant and 99.9-per-cent UV pro­tec­tive, they also fea­ture a non-slip rub­ber nose­piece and anti-fog coat­ing, so you’ll al­ways be able to see what you’re hit­ting with the grinder.

Th­ese Di­a­mond­backs are priced at $28.55 a pair, and you can pick them up from myau­to­mo­tive.co.nz by search­ing ‘Di­a­mond­back Safety Glasses’.

STAY WOOL, STAY When you’re push­ing big horses and your steel wool doesn’t want to stay in­side your muf­fler, look to the Adrenal­inR Baf­fle Ring Muf­fler En­hance­ment Sys­tem. De­vel­oped on the fastest and an­gri­est cars in New Zealand, it com­prises a se­ries of stain­less steel rings welded to the out­side of the baf­fle, giv­ing edges or shoul­ders for the stain­less steel wool to grab to while the in­tense pres­sure is try­ing to push it all down to the end of the muf­fler — the re­sult is a muf­fler that can han­dle more abuse than you can give it.
