Posted on Leave a commentPosted in 4X4's, Discovery, Landrover Club, LR2 / LR3 Rovers, Performance / Wheeling, Range Rover

With the worlds largest OEM automotive show just finishing up we have seen a lot of hype coming from the well known automotive manufacturer Ford. They continues to be focusing first of all on its trucks and crossovers. We have already seen previews of the items it’s available for that Edge and Explorer. The Blue Oblong car maker is giving us an idea of the slew of seven personalized F-150 pick-ups it’s planning for that Las Vegas tuner expo.

Towards the top of their email list is really brand new 2016 ford F150 that is using the EcoSport engine and a six-speed manual transmission. The Wheel Company ESR wheels has provided a complete work over and donated a set of ESR sr02 wheels the company has also spent a lot of time flashing the computer of the car and installing a turbo to generate some positive boost pressure.

Another Company spent time really styling the vehicle after the raptors livery setup and did a completely custom paint job! End of Story almost every vehicle at this automotive show had its own level of unique styling! This new vehicle is not to wrecked with and is going to be paving the way for modern manual trucks.

Land Rover Defender Sells for over half million at Auction?

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in 4X4's, Exotic Vehicles, Landrover Club, LR2 / LR3 Rovers, Performance / Wheeling

Range Rovers, Landrovers all seem to be sky rocketing in price in the last couple years but over half a million dollars pricey? This might seem a little bold even to the collector in our oppinion it appears just like a lot – which is – particularly when the automobile under consideration is really stripped out and low in features

That’s 17 occasions exactly what a entry level model Defender cost or what did it cost new within the United kingdom, or three occasions what it really charges for that new Range-Rover Autobiography model here in america. It is also the greatest cost ever taken care of a Land-Rover, based on both manufacturer and also the auction records at Sports Vehicle Market. The prior high-water mark was recorded by this past year by Silverstone Auctions, which offered a restored 1970 Range Rover in the Salon Privé working in london for £132,250 ($217k at that time or under $200k today).

Fortunately it’s all regulated seeing a great place – or two great places, really. The auction tips both Worldwide Federation of Red-colored Mix and Red-colored Crescent Communities and also the Born Free Foundation. The previous has reserved its area for nothing short of disaster and evacuation mission’s in Nepal, as the latter really concentratee towards wildlife preservation in Africa.

Land Rover first hit the scene in 1948 using the 1 series model, that was then the Series 2 and (you suspected it) Series 3. Initially known as the 90 and something Ten (according its approximate wheelbase measures in inches), your opponent showed up in 1983 and has been around production since. It’ll finish its production run the following month, however, when preparing for the appearance of an exciting-new model.

Ferrari! Reliable? or not so much?

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Exotic Vehicles, Landrover Club, Performance / Wheeling

The engineers at Ferrari are the most useful in the world if the involves top end engines. Their standard of quality measures to 1947 if the released it’s initial vehicle, the 125 S. Next technology have advanced Ferraris capabilities creating their engines top end, but furthermore their sturdiness.

A proud 458 owner in California has listed his 2010 model provided with nearly 80,000 miles. It’s typical to see most supercar entrepreneurs show reservation when piling round the miles, however, this guy didn’t restrain. It’s better to know available a supercar you could daily drive, rather than concern yourself with constant complete complete breakdowns.

The supercars in history are sadly rife with problems. Buying an adult supercar can be a large gamble and could empty the lending company account pretty quickly. Fortunately, we like a period of time since allows a customer to approach a supercar wealthy in mileage rather than flinch. Ultimately we wish an automobile that individuals love but that’s also reliable, it’s difficult to possess a vehicle that doesn’t work.

The 458 remains recognized to since the most reliable vehicle they have ever built. 458 entrepreneurs around the world sing the cars praises over it’s rivals like the Mclaren MP4-12c and Lamborghini Gallardo.

If you’re searching for any helpful supercar that will keep going for a very very long time later on, see the 458. You won’t be disappointed!

See the eBay listing HERE so when you must do further research, there’s another 458 on eBay with as many miles!

Changing Racing Wheels On your Car

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in 4X4's, Discovery, Landrover Club, LR2 / LR3 Rovers, Performance / Wheeling, Range Rover

Do you have a problem changing your alloy esr racing wheels? The trick is so simple. You can always change your wheels within a very short time and continue with the race. Here is how.
Park the car safely. This is to make sure that you do not block other cars that are still in the race. This also avoids any accidents that may occur. The vehicle should also be on a level ground for balance. The hazard lights are also important.
Get the jack and the spare wheel. Put the jack near the wheel that you want to replace and make sure it holds firmly onto the ground then remove the wheel.
Fix the spare wheel and fasten the nuts in place using your hands. Use the spanner when they can rotate no more. Tighten the remaining bit as tight as you can. Remove the jack and put it back and your alloy racing wheel will be good to go again.

BC Racing Suspension for Landrovers

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in 4X4's, Discovery, Landrover Club, LR2 / LR3 Rovers, Performance / Wheeling, Range Rover

We often get asked about additional methods of enhancing the performance of your racing bcracing coilovers, well when you ask Canada, we deliver! There are of course a variety of ways to maximize what you’re getting out of your bc racing coilovers and dependant on who you ask the answer will invariably differ, so here’s a couple of our personal favourites:
Rolled fenders – This may not be the most obvious however it addresses the all too common issue of wheel rub. Of course the built in adjustability on some bc coilovers will address this issue but why should you have to compromise on an otherwise perfect setup?
Camber Kits – The inclusion of a camber kit will correct the alignment of the wheel, leading to efficient, even tyre wear, an increased level of grip and subsequently better handling.
There’s so many small details and intricacies involved in achieving that all important ‘perfect setup’ that to say the above is all there is to it, would be doing our range of bc racing suspension a great disservice. If you do have any questions though, our qualified staff are always on hand to ensure your ride is always at its best.

Racing Suspension and Coil-over Importance

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Performance / Wheeling

As a racing enthusiast, excellent performance on the racing tracks, on the streets or off-road is a priority. BC Racing Coilovers are specially designed with high quality special material to give you as a driver a special edge every time you are on the racing tracks. Coilovers are basically coiled springs that compress and retract and they go over a shock to make it possible for you to lower your car to a desired level. BC Racing suspension manufacturered in Canada build their Coilover systems using different technology and designs to help you adjust the height of your car to a level that offers you better handling.
The manner in which the Coilovers lowers your car will depend on the brand that you choose and the and the specific racing car that you drive. Even at their highest setting, most of the systems lower at least half an inch, although some people may lower their cars by two inches when going to a show, which is not really a drivable look. Depending on your racing needs, some Coilovers allow you to raise your car to make it suitable for off-road purposes.

check out this video below that highlights in depth more about coilovers and how they work.

Alloy Wheels for offroading

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Performance / Wheeling

Many automobiles are manufactured with alloy rims which are better than wheels with hubcaps. Keep in mind that all cars have rims but the aftermarket variety looks better. In some cases they are more durable than the manufactured variety.
Aftermarket wheels have a higher price tag except for a couple brands like esr wheels. Replacing all four wheels with higher rims will usually cost a driver about $1,000 for a new set. The best thing about rims is that they allow motorists to customize the look of their vehicles. A person can purchase high quality set of rims and make their car really stand out from other vehicles.
A good set of rims can also be used for functional purpose. Vehicles that are used for racing are typically made out of durable rims that will not bend or dent easily. Drivers that race vehicles for sport require solid wheels that are able to handle a lot of torque and maneuvering.
The average person that has a vehicle for towing should also use a specific brand of durable rims. Higher end rims are available for pick-up trucks and trailers but they are not as flashy as car rims. Instead, they are made out of durable metals such as aluminum, titanium and magnesium. We got in contact with a reputable company that is building rims by the name of esr wheels they currently have a variety of different models everything from the esr sr01, esr sr02, esr sr03 and lastly the esr sr04. Most major cities and even small towns has at least one shop that specializes in rims Motorists should visit these shops or order a set of customizable aftermarket wheels from online shops similar to that of esr wheels.
