Their motto when you visit the website is “God Lives in the Details” – a phrase I truly can appreciate.  Preach on!

Leave it to the Japanese to take an inconic car like the 996 GT3 and turn into something even more exclusive

Video of it in action?  No problem!  Gotta love the Top Gun esque music too

Paradise by the Dashboard Light

Just got these in and they are hot!! For all you Haltech E8, EV12, and Platinum users, this is what I’d call a “must have”. Racepak and Haltech have now teamed up to make a plug and play configurable dash solution. All the cool features you have come to expect from Racetech, but in a more cost effective package.

This comes in 2 versions – one with datalogging and one without

The IQ3 dash represents an entirely new concept in data logging dashes. This uses Racepak’s exclusive smart sensor type, that means that only one small cable will transmit the data from all the sensors to the rear of the dash. For the customer, this means no bulky, heavy sensor wiring harness. All sensors transmit their data through a single cable (Vnet) which is routed to the rear of the dash. This eliminates the need for a sensor harness, greatly reducing installation time, complexity and overall weight.

The programmable shift lights are protected from sunlight by a molded shield above the lights, while the low glare LCD display is well recessed in the housing in order to provide viewing in all light conditions.

Haltech IQ3 Features:
– 32 Channels
– Programmable Shift Lights
– Programmable Warning Lights With On Screen Warning
– 24 Programmable Sensor Inputs On 4 Pages
– Programmable Channel Names
– Gear Indicator
– Predictive Lap Time
– Includes Software and Installation Manual
– Metric / Imperial Configurable
– Haltech CAN Communication Module built in ($375 Value!)
Priced at $695 SHIPPED!
Datalogging option:

All features from display-only IQ3 plus:
-512mb microSD memory card
-Data logging up to 32 channels at 100 samples per second
-GPS track mapping, speed, and lap times (no beacon required!)
-3 Axis G Meter Priced at $1440 Shipped!

To order your IQ3, Haltech ECU, or if you need a combo setup, let us know! ‘Tis the season and we’re making deals!

OS Giken Super Lock Limited Slip Differential

22 Nov

osgikenlsd1

In our neverending quest to offer only the best products on the market for your performance car, we are proud to now be an authorized OS Giken dealer. OS Giken has been producing performance parts for both OEM manufacturers as well as the aftermarket since 1975. Professional racers, home grown racers, and performance enthusiasts alike have come to know and respect OS Gikens immense knowledge and resources, and we’re honored to be able to bring these products to you.

So what makes the OS Giken differential so special? It’s in the details! There are lots of differential options on the market, but here is what makes the OS Giken stand head and shoulders above the rest.

1. Lock Timing Technology – under normal driving conditions, the OS Giken LSD acts just like any normal differential. Once full power is applied, it turns into a true 100% locking unit. However, unlike other clutch type differentials, what separates the OS Giken from others is how smoothly this transition is performed. In addition, due to unique gear driven center section, the OS Giken differential is extremely responsive, allowing it to transition from lock to unlock instantly.

2. When we say 100% lock, we mean 100% lock! Many lesser differentials on the market claim 100% lockup ability, but due to their low number of disks and small diameter, they never are truly able to sustain such high lock percentages. Not so with the OS Giken. These differentials feature more disks than any other differential on the market, which are placed in a forged housing. This not only keeps heat to a minimum, but spreads the load over a greater number of disks, which is the reason it works so seamlessly.

3. Less undesteer = more goodness! When your car enters a corner off throttle, the spring inside the patended pressure control ring reacts immediately and the differential immediately unlocks. This is done so quickly and efficiently, that the car is able to turn in quicker than with convential differentials. However, when power is put down upon corner exit, the OS Giken unit immediately returns to 100% lockup, allowing for less chance for wheel spin.

4. No More Figure 8’s!!! Ever wonder why some aftermarket differentials require you to dizzy yourself with endless figure 8’s as a “break in”. The reason is simple – because the components used are not machined as precisely as in other units. The OS Giken unit is built to such stringent tolerances, there is zero break in required. Simply install and go

5. Tons of Applications! OS Giken has one of the widest application ranges out there. They make the famous Super Lock LSD for BMW, Porsche, Nissan, Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, even Corvettes. Contact us for your application and we’ll be happy to make you a killer deal!

Eh? 22″ Wheels and a TON of stereo equipment

This just reconfirms that the R35 is a big freakin car, these wheels don’t even look like 22s. At least they used top-notch audio equipment.
