Classic Supercar Maintenance

Maintaining any special Supercar takes specialist equipment and expertise, older classic car require even more attention to detail.


If you have a classic Supercar it is highly likely it will have multiple carburettors and a Distributor.   Both of these can make you Supercar amazing if set up correctly or  terrible if they are not!  Balancing and rebuilding carburettor is a highly skilled task which many try but very few are actually masters at. 

R&D have been building and tuning carburettors for nearly 40 years…


Distributors are equally as import for a classic car if not more!

While Carburettors can generally be rebuilt with spares obtained, this is not the case with many older distributers.  Many distributers are no longer made and cannot be found on the used market either.  Many people try and find alternatives but in reality these rarely work.

R&D have rare equipment which you can no longer be purchased, it allows full testing of the distributer and diagnosis faulty finding from bearings to being able to factory set up dual points for the optimal operation, and the your supercar working the way it was supposed to.

This equipment was not widely available when many classic cars were new and was often the reason why the engines never ran trouble free and many believing that the classic engine was unreliable and temperamental.

Maintaining a engine correctly with an original full services distributer will help to maintain and increase the value of your supercar where the originality is preserved.
