Aston Martin Rally GT with RallyComp 300
Historical Ford Escort with RallyComp


Nicky Grist chooses Hidja RallyComp...

After years of competing at the top of the World Rally Championship I decided to set up a company selling quality rally products.

After closely looking at and then using Hidja tripmeters I knew that the product was excellent and something that my business had to carry. The Hidja range has something for everyone in terms of costs and also the functions that they require from the product.

From the start of the range Rallycomp 100 to the function packed Rallycomp 300 there is something to keep even the keenest rally co-driver happy. They are also the easiest tripmeters to use with the help of the interactive LED screen. Buy a Hidja product and you will not be let down!

SLC finals in Mantorp

The finals in SLC took place at Mantorp 14-15 October. The weather was good with lots of sun and not too cold outside. X-racing who have a RallyComp 300 installed in their Porsche 944 with start number 944 had problems with an oil leakage after the first half of the race, but managed to fix the leak. After that the car ran until eight o'clock in the evening when a suspender broke. At first, the driver thought it was a flat tyre, but when the car entered the pit for a checkup a wheel came off when the car was lift up. The car was not reparable at the time and still came in on 19th place out of 39 cars. Right now the team are preparing for 2006, more info will follow...

Experiment boat makes use of BoatComp 100

Fritiof Huldén is the innovator and designer of an important boat project. Fritiof says he got hold of a couple of used turbine engines, that were being sold by the swedish defence, for a good price. A boat of the model SeaRay was purchased and the original engine (a 5 litre V8) was removed, to be replaced by a turbine engine. The new engine required a substantial amount of work to be made like moving the fuel tank, adaptation for air intake and a lot of new electrical and pipe design. The engine is originally from a helicopter and outputs 500 HP. It is the same amount of power as the original boat engine, but the turbine weighs 100 kg less. The drawback of the turbine engine is that it requires a lot of fuel. Diesel is used today, but it can be used with other fuel and Fritiof is aiming for Ethanol to make the most fish friendly boat in lake Vänern.

To keep track of the amount of fuel used and the fuel flow, Fritiof contacted HIDJA AB. Today a BoatComp 100 is mounted in the boat to measure the flow. Without tuning the measured value is around 150 litres/hour, when in idle mode. Now awaits tuning of the engine and gears and this is made easier by the BoatComp 100.
