  • Hennessey Venom F5 PUSHES 466KPH

    That’s right the Hennessey Venom F5 PUSHES 466KPH which probably makes it the fastest Super-car in the world! #MidasPower You might not dive a Hennessey Venom F5, but I am sure you love your car just as much! Ok, maybe not just as much. However, you need to keep your current car running smoothly. So for any of your vehicle requirements, Randburg Midas is your one stop spare shop! Hennessey is planning a whole new set of upgrades for the F5, including all-carbon-fiber bodywork to help keep the curb weight under 2,866 pounds to help enhance its power-to-weight ratio. By comparison, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport only returns 630 horsepower per tonne, whereas it appears Hennessey is shooting for 1000 horsepower per tonne. Though the Venom F5 will share a Lotus platform with the Venom GT, they will have different looks. The F5 looks more like the lovechild of the Nissan GT-R and Ferrari LaFerrari Ferrari LaFerrari. Additionally, Hennessey Hennessey will add aerodynamic components to drop the F5’s coefficient of drag to 0.40 — the Venom GT’s coefficient of drag checks in at 0.44. Sure, it’s a small change, but enough to help the F5 maintain its speed in a down-and-back run at the Kennedy Space Center. Once Hennessey has successfully evolved the Venom GT into the F5, the latter should be able to take the reigns from its cousin as the true kingpin of the supercar world, despite what the Guinness Book of World Records believes. Achieving a top speed of 290 mph is quite literally the fastest way to do that. The company plans to produce 30 examples of the Venom F5, which is just enough to satisfy Guinness’ requirement for the record. Each example will come with a price of somewhere north of the R18 Million sticker of the Venom GT. Customers lucky enough to secure one of these 30 models should expect to receive their new babies sometime in 2016.

  • Motorcycle Chain Maintenance and Care

    Use our guide to motorcycle chain maintenance & care, you’ll avoid a rusty noisy chain which impedes your safety and the motorcycle’s optimal function #MotorBikes Randburg Midas stock the full range of Motul chain care products. If you are planning on using the best, make sure you are dealing with the best! It’s easy to ignore your motorcycle chain but it requires just as much attention as other key components on your motorcycle. Using our guide to motorcycle chain maintenance & care, you’ll avoid a rusty noisy chain which impedes your safety and the motorcycle’s optimal function. An ignored chain will eventually fail, typically by breaking. A broken chain will ball-up around the counter-shaft (A drive-shaft that transmits motion from the main shaft to where it is required i.e. chain) and front sprocket. When this happens, your chain will rip and tear its way through your soft aluminium motor guarantee to damage your engine (either from the chain flailing around or from the motor coming to an immediate stop) – and lets not forget how unsafe this all can be! When a chain snaps, it often gets caught in the rear wheel, resulting in an immediate rear wheel skid. Rarely, will the chain fly off the bike without making contact with anything; while the rider coasts to a stop. In either scenario, you will be stranded and likely have sustained unnecessary damage. O RINGS There are basically two main types of chains: O-Ring chains and Non-O-Ring chains. O-Ring chains have, as you might imagine – small rings in an “O” shape built into them. The O-Rings are used to keep grease and lubrication inside your chain (between all the moving parts). Non-O-Ring chains do not. It is important to remember that the very design and purpose of an O-Ring chain is to keep the lubrication inside. You should lubricate your chain every kilometre of riding. There are many types of lubricants available; from basic wax, foaming wax, conventional lube to foaming conventional lube. Different lubricants will provide different levels of “fling” (grease flying off the chain when under-way) and protection. Funny thing is – the more “fling”, the better protection for your chain where the less the “fling” the opposite. When your chain is without lubricant it will build up heat which results in chain stretching. Without lube, your O-Ring will also be exposed to the harmful ozone and ultraviolet…
