Activ8 Friction Reducer
Tuesday, 18 September 2007 21:06


We are pleased to announce that Retro Custom is now the official supplier of Activ8 Friction Reducer products to the aircooled VW scene.

Activ8 is a universal friction reducer which offers outstanding metal-to-metal protection and is very unique in that it contains no harmful additives such as PTFE which can clog engine oilways. Activ8 can be added to engine oil and increase engine performance, power and improve fuel economy.

This product is ideal for the aircooled VW engine as reducing engine friction reduces heat, which is a big killer of the flat four engine. Activ8 provides enormous protection at startup, when the engine is cold and is most susceptible to harm. We recommend the use of Activ8 as an oil supplement in all stock VW engines and especially in high-revving performance engines where instances of metal-to-metal contact is far greater.

Activ8 is a proven race winning product and is used by Andy Frost in his 'Worlds Fastest Street Car' Vauxhall Victor. 

VW Action 2007

VW Action 2007 was held at Santa Pod over the weekend of the 31st August to 2nd September at its new venue at Santa Pod Raceway.

Retro Custom went along to check it out and the show turned out to be the best show we have been to since Le Bug Show at Spa Francorchamps in 2005! 

The night drag racing alone was well worth the admission fee, and the relaxed and chilled vibe, along with the excellent turn out in the show and shine made the event one to remember!

Congratulations to Restowagen for an 8 trophy haul in the show and shine, including both Simon Fox's 'Europe's Most Beautiful VW' trophy and Restowagen taking the Best Club Display trophy once again!

VW Action will be returning to the 'Pod for 2008, and we will definitely be back for more!
