  • Scirocco-Top speed

    VW have recently announced their 2016 Scirocco that has a Top speed of 246 km/h what do you think of it? #MidasPower Randburg Midas stock the full range of VW spare parts. Some info on the VW Scirocco GTS Some cars live for ever because they are constantly reinvented. The Scirocco, a pure-bred European sports car, is one of these cars that is forever young. Presented at the 1974 Geneva Motor Show, 41 years ago, it became an icon of compact German coupés. The car caught the spirit of the age: over a million units of the Scirocco have been produced since then. Last summer a comprehensively refined generation of the sports car was launched, featuring, among other things, a completely new range of engines. Building on this, Volkswagen unveils the new Scirocco GTS – a sports car with 162 kW / 220 PS – in a world premiere at Auto Shanghai. Its engine is one of the most popular in the Scirocco range because it is sharing its design genes with the engine of the Golf GTI. A turbocharged direct-injection petrol engine that is recognised as being one of the most agile four-cylinder engines in the world. It catapults the Scirocco GTS – either with a manual gearbox or with the 6-speed DSG – to 100 km/h in just 6.5 seconds. Top speed: 246 km/h (DSG: 244 km/h). The average fuel consumption shows just how efficient the engine of the Scirocco is: just 6.1 l/100 km with a manual gearbox and similarly economical at 6.4 l/100 km with a DSG gearbox.

  • How to tow a car

    In this short post we will show you exactly how to tow a car. This is a great skill to have because you never know when you are going to need it. I always say rather safe than sorry #MidasPower Make sure you always have everything you will need to be towed or if you need to tow someone. At Randburg Midas we stock everything you will need and much more! If you are stuck and can’t get your car going, you may have to tow it to a mechanic’s shop or a safe place to do repairs yourself. Here are some steps to help you tow cars safely. Find someone with a vehicle powerful enough to tow yours. A sedan or small car probably shouldn’t be used to tow a Bakkie or SUV. Buy a suitable tow strap. In a pinch, a chain can be used to tow a vehicle a short distance, but this can be dangerous, as chains do not stretch, and links can break during towing. A nylon or polyester strap with manufactured end loops is better for safely towing. Find a suitable place to attach your tow strap. A bumper hitch with a trailer ball will work for the tow vehicle, but hooking to the car to be towed can be tricky, since suspension components are not designed for pulling pressure, and other metal components can cut or pinch your strap. Ideally, a rounded frame member or front bumper support can be used for your attachment, but these vary considerably between vehicles. Check the brakes, steering, and warning lamps to make sure they are functioning sufficiently for your tow. If the vehicle is equipped with power brakes and steering, their use is limited if your engine will not run while being towed. In this case, renting a dolly is a better option. Make an inspection of your towing connections and discuss signalling plans with your tow driver. Plan an exact route, and try to choose one that avoids congested traffic areas or high speed roads. Climb in behind the wheel of the vehicle being towed, disengage the parking brake, and put the vehicle in neutral. Hold the foot brake lightly to prevent the vehicle from rolling until the slack is taken up from the towing vehicle. Have a spotter flag the tow vehicle until the tow line is taut, then release the brake in the vehicle being towed, and prepare to…

  • Get sideways in a drift car

    What a fun day out where we experienced where we got sideways in a drift car at Dezzi’s Raceway in Port Shepstone, KZN #MidasPower What is Drifting? Drifting is a driving style in which the driver uses the throttle, brakes, clutch, gear shifting and steering input to keep the car in a state of oversteer while manoeuvring from turn to turn. Drifters emphasise car control by coordinating the amount of countersteer (or opposite lock) with the simultaneous modulation of the throttle and brakes to shift the weight balance of the car back and forth through the turns. Furthermore, they strive to achieve this while adhering to the standard racing lines (or designated “clipping points” if drifting in competition) and maintaining extreme slip angles For more information on our impressive range of car care products and more, please contact us www.midasrandburg.co.za | (011) 789-4411 | marco@midasrandburg.co.za | 191 Bram Fischer Drive, Randburg.
