Jonathan just picked this up a few days ago, after trading in his ’06 Civic Si. Should be fun…some mods already on order 🙂

I was in it the other night – very quick car, great midrange punch, very, very nice interior. I was especially impressed with the quality of materials and overall layout – it’s nice, regardless of price. This one is loaded with everything. HID’s (with the cool turning headlights), Navi, Bose – the works. Congrats Jon, shiny side up!

Work Emotion 11RF-T

14 Jan

Brand new for 2011, we are proud to announce a special edition WORK Emotion 11R-FT that is exclusive to WORK Wheels USA. Featuring Matte Gray Silver (MGS) Finish & Matte Gunmetal (MGM) Finish, there is also upgraded sizing, including a long awaited 18×10.5 sizing!

Available only through WORK Wheels USA & our WORK Wheels Authorized Dealers!

This WORK Emotion 11R-FT utlizes WORK Flowforming Technology, also known as spun forming here in the U.S. Sizes range from 17 inch to 18 inch.

The key benefit for flow forming is able to reduce the barrel thickness, thus reducing the weight of the wheel without compromising the strength of the rim barrel. The 11R-FT is a good choice for motorsports racing use or at area where there are smoother roads.

Unlike our competitors’ flow forming wheels, WORK flow forming wheels start with low-pressure cast construction, whereas some of our competitors use lower quality gravity casting.

Low-pressure cast construction has a denser material property over gravity cast wheels, thus allowing a greater strength advantage over gravity cast with flow-forming barrel.

Application available for both front wheel, rear wheel and all wheel drive vehicles. Depending on size and offset, the Emotion 11R-FT is available with semi-concave or deep concave face. Some specs are BBK friendly.

1) 18×10.5 Sizing: The 11R-FT is the first Emotion series to have a 10.5″ width in the 18″ sizing.

2) USA Exclusive Finishes: Matte Gray Silver (MGS) & Matte Gunmetal (MGM) are standard finishes on this Emotion 11R-FT.

3) WORK Flowforming Technology (spun forming): The key benefit for flow forming is able to reduce the barrel thickness, thus reducing the weight of the wheel without compromising the strength of the rim barrel. The 11R-FT is a good choice for motorsports racing use or at area where there are smoother roads. Unlike our competitors’ flow forming wheels, WORK flow forming wheels start with low-pressure cast construction, whereas some of our competitors use lower quality gravity casting.

4) Big Brake Clearance: Due to the design of the 11R-FT, it is very brake friendly to large OEM calipers along with many aftermarket calipers.

5) Reduced Weight: By using WORK Flowforming Technology, WORK Wheels was able to save on average ~2.2 lbs. per wheel, while maintaining the engineering strength and integrity.

Optional center cap available (sold separately).

Sport decal sheet available (sold separately).

Powergrid Endlinks for your Porsche, BMW, Corvette, and More!

12 Jan

We’ve been offering the Powergrid endlinks for the 350Z and G35 for years. Google it, you’ll find out what everyone else already knows. That if you want the best endlink on the market, you found ’em. Well, we’re now carrying them for your Porsche as well.

This is why they are important, what they do, and why you want ’em:

The endlinks connect your swaybar to your the rest of your suspension. As the swaybar moves during a turn (or technically, resists moving), the endlinks job is to keep the bar parallel to the ground. Whether you have stock swaybars or aftermarket, the harder you push your car, the more prone your stock links are towards snapping, or breaking. Many modern day cars use links that are made of cheap stamped steel, and many are even plastic! They are designed to be used with softer stock spring rates, and less grippy tires than true enthusiasts tend to use. As you increase the grip of the car, the endlink is placed under greater strain to control that swaybar. The same holds true when you’re fitting larger diameter, and adjustable swaybars. These stiffer bars place greater load on the endlink and those stock endlinks were never designed with that force in mind. The second thing to consider is when fitting lowering springs or aftermarket coilovers. As you adjust the height of your car, you can often cause your swaybar to change position. That means during the compression stroke of the suspension, the stock swaybar can be limited in its movement (aka binding), which vastly reduces the ability of the bar to do it’s job. For those with coilovers, this becomes even more important if you’re looking to cornerweight your car. Having an adjustable endlink such as this allows you to adjust swaybar preload, and that translates into more effective cornerbalancing results and more effective swaybar tuning.

Applications – tons! If you’ve got a performance car, we probably have an application for you.

Porsche:

BMW: E30 (M3), E24, E28, E34, E39, E46 M3, E90, E60
Acura TSX
Audi TT
Cadillac CTS
Cadillac XLR
Corvette
Cobalt
Dodge Charger
Infiniti G35
Mini Cooper
Mazda 3, 6, Miata
Mazdaspeed 3 and 6
Mazda RX8
Nissan 350Z
Porsche 911, Boxster and Cayman
Scion TC
Toyota Supra
Toyota Celica
Toyota Corolla
VW GTI
VW Eos
VW Jetta

And we’re always looking to add more! These endlinks aren’t cheap to buy because they aren’t cheap to make. They use genuine THK components (THK is an OEM automotive supplier to tons of manufacturers). They don’t use hardware store heim joints like so many others out there. Those start out great and in short order tend to get very noisy as they are exposed to the elements, and accumulate dirt, sand, moisture, salt, etc. These endinks are different. They offer the articulation (ability for the endlink head to rotate, thus keeping the swaybar in the correct position), but are fully sealed. Never will require any maintenance – no grease, no cleaning, nothing!
