Lots of shiney motor sport stuff.

can't comment on prices, seemed fair (and in Scotland) with VERY quick delivery, the folk seemed very helpful on a 'relatively' low cost item

However their GUCCHI corner weighing system is a LOT more than four bathroom scales from AMAZON :-)

Phil H will maybe comment on his dealings with them?

I've used them lots of times for odds and sods as well as rose joints, spherical bearings etc. Service and delivery are excellent as are their prices.
Their corner weighting system is about 2/3rd cost of equivalent Longacre version too ;-)

I had no hesitation ordering from them even as a first timer after glowing recommendations from CNH.

Ordered a new fuel pump late Friday and it arrived this morning with free postage - from Fife - they were also the cheapest supplier. Thumbs up for them.

They seem to have been the favoured supplier for competitively-priced rod-end bearings (rose joints) for some time, too. :)

I have used these guys several times over the years, both for the Scim, and my Rally car, they are always helpful, and provide good value quality items. my last purchase was 3 metres of stainless steel fuel line, which looks very sexy running up the Se5's chassis !!
