50 Years and Still in Duty: Racing Engine Ford Cosworth DFV
Real classics of motorsport history: Ford Cosworth racing engines of the DFV family. Already with its debut in Zandvoort 1967 the powerplant of British engine specialist Cosworth gained its first of more that a hundred racing victories in Formula 1.

New 2019: Programmable Head Light Blink Module SU251
It's a classic in our programme: Headlight flasher/ TipFlash module.
Amongst others, the headlight flasher is used at endurance races for automatic head light / high beam flashing while lapping a car ahead. A quick fingertip on the flash button makes the headlight blinking for several times. New: The blink count can be programmed by the user without additional tools even when completely installed in the car. The module is short-circuit proof and can be used with all common headlight units (bulb / halogen / LED).
Photos, manual and further info could be found on our TipFlash page.
