  • Mechanics win NASCAR trip of a lifetime 

    Federal-Mogul Motorparts is sending two lucky technicians from Top-notch Motor Repairs in Tamworth to the USA to see the thrills of NASCAR at the Daytona International Speedway in Florida. The winners entered a prize draw sponsored by MOOG, Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ steering and suspension specialist. MOOG has sponsored NASCAR for over 50 years and supplies parts to all cars in both the European and US series.   The grand prize was a trip for two to watch a NASCAR race in the US, including flights, accommodations and track transfers. Runner-up prizes included hospitality tickets for the Brands Hatch leg of the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series, while over 500 limited edition prizes were also awarded, including t-shirts and caps.   “We have only just taken in the good news,” said winner Kevin Taylor. “To say we are both really chuffed is an understatement. We chose to go to the race at Daytona in Florida so that we can take full advantage of the trip and indulge our other great passion, big game fishing. We are both keen anglers and the combination of Florida, NASCAR and some time out on the sea is just about as perfect a holiday as we can imagine.”

  • First Line steering & suspension range ‘Includes Fittings’  

    All First Line ball joints, link bars, and suspension arms that come with the necessary fitting components as standard will now bear the new 'Includes Fittings' logo on the packaging. With this clear message showing that the necessary fittings have been supplied with the component, technicians can be sure that a smooth and efficient installation can be carried out.
        
    To further aid the efficient identification of its steering and suspension components, First Line has added positioning layout images to the WebCat, which has been proven to significantly reduce look-up time.

  • Approved parts 

    Steering and suspension parts are at the heart of what Optimal does and its programme includes more than 4,500 part numbers which can be found on TecDoc and MAM, with over 85% of part numbers available from UK stocks, the rest coming from its German warehouses. Every part of the front and rear suspension is available, from joints to tie rod assemblies, control arms and stabilisers. The firm is a TUV approved supplier, with its parts undergoing regular inspections throughout the entire manufacturing process. The firm continues to expand its product range and its next target for the steering and suspension range is over 5,000 different part numbers.

  • Replace in pairs 

    To prevent compromising safety, TRW is promoting the message to replace shock absorbers in pairs. The firm conducted tests with a differing damping force on one shock, which showed a significant improvement in car performance when they were replaced in pairs rather than individually, especially when a vehicle is changing lanes or under emergency braking. The firm has been campaigning for years to have the shock absorber classified as a safety critical part and included in the annual roadworthiness tests. Belgium has adopted this stance already.
