Vehicle Performance Check

When developing and setting up performance kits or diagnosing faults, we use the latest technology from Lotus & KTM alongside our own in-house developed data logging platform. This combination allows us to capture engine performance data from a wide range of sensors in real time during dynamic testing on the road or track. This extensive cache of data can then reveal the overall health of your engine and help to locate any potential issues.

If you are concerned about the performance of your car and would like us to carry out more in-depth diagnostics than you will find at any main dealer or general service garage contact us today for further information.

That Suspension Cover Thing – Explained

A number of owners have been in touch asking about the suspension cover that has been seen at X-Bow Battle events and on our sponsored driver Saad Salman’s GT4 (Sayel Racing).  Hopefully we can explain this further.

The original development of this part was to make the X-Bow legal on the roads where legislation dictates that any moving parts should be covered where there is a risk of contact with a human in the event of an accident.  Rules are rules, so KTM developed a cover that lays over the spring and damper assemblies on the top of the monocoque.

During development of the X-Bow in various race series, the cover has been used in an effort to reduce drag where air may be caught up around the suspension units.

The part is called Pedestrian Protection and is available from Hangar 111 priced at £363 + vat.  It is compatible with all models of X-Bow.  Contact us for more details.
