Rare ‘Ish

28 May

This wheel is so cool it deserves it’s own post. Personal Fitti, 350mm, black suede, red stitching. Not too often you see it in this configuration, usually it has the yellow stitch. The attention to detail they put into these things is so nice, you have to touch it to appreciate it. The crossed stitches are perfectly symetrical throughout, the embossed “Personal” logo in the center. Plus, it’s got the offset center section, which further enhances it’s unique appearance. Aftermarket wheels like this are such a clean and simple way to dress up your interior and make it fresh again. And for your track whores, the suede rim gives much better grip than plain leather. 1 up for grabs if anyone wants it !

I’m done explaining why…

…we spend so much money on Endless products on our personal cars. Their stuff is top notch and since we don’t cut corners with our car builds here at Z1 what else should we be using? If you’re on the LIE in 2020 when my Z is done you better watch out, lol.

I swear if someone in the aftermarket world comes out with a quality Kinetic Energy Recovery System like the new Formula One cars use I will save up a ton of duckets for it. 🙂

Back to the point of this blog post… Endless products are quality and race proven. Congrats on the victories!

Endless Equipped Cars Dominate Motorsports Weekend
Huntington Beach, CA (May 28, 2009) – Endless equipped teams across the globe showed their dominance this past weekend of May 23rd and 24th. From World Rally Challenge to the Formula One Monaco Grand Prix to the Nurburgring 24 Hours, all teams clenching victory used Endless as an integral part of their brake package.
Italy was next on the WRC schedule and Ford occupied both the 1st and 2nd place steps on the podium. Ford’s rally cars use the ever popular Endless rally/sprint race brake pad compounds and Endless RF-650 brake fluid.
Brawn GP continued their dominance and further extended their lead in the Formula One championship by finishing one-two at the glamorous Monaco Grand Prix. Yet again Jensen Button and Rubens Barrichello drove their Brawns equipped with Endless RF-650 brake fluid straight to victory lane.
But perhaps the most success enjoyed by Endless and their supported teams was in the famous 24 Hour Endurance race at the Nurburgring. More than forty cars in the field used Endless product for the grueling race. It was a sizable presence of Endless equipped cars; including Mitsubishi Lancers, Nissan 350Zs, and Alpina BMWs. More impressive, however, were the overall 3rd place Manthey Racing Porsche GT3 Cup car, 2nd place ABT Audi R8 and 1st place Manthey Racing Porsche GT3 RSR, all running Endless brake pads and fluid.
“It was a phenomenal weekend for our global Endless group,” said Executive Director of Endless USA, Dominic Chen. “The product truly speaks for itself by means of race victories. We are extremely proud to be working with such high caliber, talented people.” Endless hopes to add another endurance race win when the Texas based Risi Competizione team heads to France in a few weeks time to defend their class victory from last years 24 Hours at Le Mans.

New ATS Clutches for 2007 + 350Z and 2009 +370Z/G37

28 May

When Nissan implemented the VQ35HR engine on the 350Z, they did away with the older slave cylinder setup, and employed a CSC (concentrical slave cylinder) inside the bellhousing. As many have found out, this piece has proven problematic, and prone to breaking. That means dropping the transmission, replacing it with a new one (hundreds of dollars each time) and keeping your fingers crossed. With an aftermarket clutch, the problem only seems to be maginified.

ATS has come up with their multi disk clutch setups that completely does away with the CSC! These are offered in several configurations, ranging from a twin metal disk version that reuses the stock dual mass flywheel, to a triple disk carbon that includes an integrated lightweight flywheel.

These come with your choice of an 1100 kg pressure plate, or 1350 kg pressure plate depending upon your torque requirements. A reinforced NISMO slave cylinder is also offered as an option.
