  • New Carbon Fibre And Fiberglass Escort Panels Now In Stock

    Whether you're looking to save a few grams of weight here and there, or are just looking to improve the look and feel of your Escort, then the latest panels we've just brought into stock are where you need to be looking.

    MK1_FULL_FG_BOOT

    If you're looking at just saving some weight, then the full fiberglass boot panel would be a great place to start for your Mk1 Escort. Weighing in at around 4.6Kg it'll help make a substantial saving in weight over the conventional steel boot and despite being made from fiberglass, it doesn't feel flimsy at all. The internal framework gives the panel real strength and rigidity, and it comes complete with the same mounting points that the original hinges had.

    MK1_CARBON_COMPOSITE

    If the full fiberglass panel doesn't do it for you, then there are other options. One if the big sellers at the minute is the Carbon Composite boot. It tips the scales slightly lower than the full fiberglass panel, coming in at around 3.9Kg, and as we all know, the small savings in weight over the whole car soon mount up. The design of it is impressive as well as subtle, the weave of the carbon fibre is visible mainly in the underside recesses of the panel, keeping it light and strong but without compromising the classic look of the car.


    If you've got a Mk2 then there are even more options for you, sticking with the rear of the car, there's the Mk2 Fiberglass Boot. It has a similar internal framework as the Mk1 panel, giving it the same strong but light feel. But maybe you want something slightly different. If that's the case then there's this.

    MK2_FG_BOOT_RS_WORKS

    For those who don't recongnise the image, it's a fiberglass boot with an RS1800 WORKS spoiler. Now, we do sell the fiberglass spoilers separately if you don't feel like changing the entire boot panel just yet, but if you are, then this saves you the hassle of having to fit it yourself.

    FITTED_RS_BOOT

    So there we go, if you're looking at shaving a few kilos off of the rear of your Escort then there aren't many easier ways in which to do it. And if you're looking at shaving some weight off elsewhere on the car, then check out the full range of fiberglass (and carbon fibre) panels available.

  • First Rally for the Motorsport-Tools Escort Mk2

    Well finally we got to take the Motorsport Tools Escort Mk2 out on a competitive event, we competed on the Toyota Harlech stages last weekend, unfortunately it was a DNF due to a slight problem with the hydraulic clutch master cylinder, but we got to test the Escort on a rally and we did 6 out of 8 stages so not too bad.

    The event took place on the Llanbedar airfield near Harlech, North Wales, local to us, just down the road and was organized by our local motor club Harlech and district motor club. Well done to them on a very well run event.

    The couple of weeks leading up to the event was very dry and sunny so we stocked up in some hard compound tyres, the airfield tarmac is very abrasive so hard compound is a must when its dry, but typically the day of the rally it poured down all day with a lot of standing water, so our slick tyres were not much use, it was very difficult puting the power down, the rear wheel was spinning in 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear and loads of sideways!

    It was the first time we got to use the Quaife 60g gearbox in anger, and it was a pleasure, worked great with very nice gear changes up and down, the ratios were spot on. The Millington Diamond 2.5L engine was also great, never missed a beat all day and has loads of torque, pulls like a train!

    Overall a good test and shakedown for the Escort, cant wait to get out again, next event Anglesey circuit in June.

  • New Group4 Atlas Axle for the Escort

    Today we take a look at the Escort's axle, The Atlas is based on the Ford Capri axle and was used on the works Group 4 Escorts as a stronger alternative to the standard English axle. The Atlas axle is still used today on Escort rally car due to their reliability.

    photo

    This is the wide version for use with tarmac arches, thick tube casing with diamond shaped 4 link brackets. Alloy brace and watts linkage diff cover. Internally we have used a Gripper LSD and a 5.1:1 ratio crown wheel and pinion.

    jjrtyjutyuy5t4

    Fully floating, twin tapered bearing rear alloy hubs with heavy duty half shafts and alloy flanges with group 4 studs. The fully floating rear hubs have the bearings located on the out side of the axle casing which takes the full weight of the car. The half shafts only transmits torque from the diff to the wheels. The half shaft and flange can be taken out without removing the hub assembly.

    For brakes we have used AP Racing CP2382 2 Pot calipers with AP vented discs, Ferodo DS3000 pads.

    Motamec braided hoses were used. Note the bolt on caliper skid to protect the brake lines.
