August Issue of Practical Performance Car Magazine out Now!
This month's Practical Performance Car magazine is out now! Hurry down to WHSmiths, Tesco, Morrisons, Asda, Sainsbury's or a good local newsagent. When you've picked up your copy you'll be able to read all about:
- The Hayabusa-Cappucino. Hayabusa motorbike engine + Suzuki Cappucino + B&Q plywood = very clever, very fast race car. Banned from the championship it was built for, it's skulking menacingly in the front of this issue.
- A bright yellow Rover P6 racer with fewer doors and more V8.
- Trying to beat a train to Cornwall on the same budget as a Virgin return ticket.
- Budget Blaster is back with another article on how to buy a noisy French hatchback, this time a Peugeot 106 Rallye.
- The buyers' guide Clarkson should have read before buying a Merc CL for small car money.
- Preparing the Scimover for being on the telly and the XJ-S for being in the PPC challenge.
- Staff cars: Will resorts to pouring Coke into his BMW, Kev's XJR takes some steps towards working, James gets his BMW into road-legal condition, Matt replaces a diesel Alfa estate with a diesel Alfa estate and Charlie makes a new aluminium radiator.
- Readers' cars: They're all German this month (except for a Jag). Highlights include a home-brewed M-car and a period VW Golf racer.
PPC is the definitive technical performance tuning magazine, with:
- How to guides on fitting your own ECU and putting an Audi five-cylinder engine in your car.
- Dave Walker's workshop
- Answering all your technical questions with Tech Talk
- Ever wanted to roll or tilt? Be sure to read our product test on rollers and tilters before you do.
- More bits of 560SEL make it into Will's 280SE. This month, the subframe gets plumbed in, under the pretence of fuel economy.
