We are able to supply parts for Formula Ford cars.

  • Brake Pad Retaining Clips – A simple, reusable R-clip that replaces the standard split pins on MLB19 calipers. Will also fit non vented Mini calipers.
  • Long Life Clutch Seals – A new solution to the troublesome O-ring type seals used on many FF1600 and Zetec cars clutch slave cylinders. We are currently able to supply seals for most Van Diemens and some models of Swift and Reynard. These seals have less friction than a standard O-ring and also resist the usual ‘rolling’ of the ring which leads to rapid failure of most standard types.
  • Our range of parts is growing all the time, so please contact us with your requirements check our Facebook page for updates.
