30 Nov

exedyrebuilddiagram

Did you know that your Exedy and Cusco Racing Hyper Single, Twin, and Triple Disk even Carbon disk clutch was rebuildable? If it’s slipping, or if it’s getting up there in age/mileage/abuse and you want to avoid a problem before it happens, you’ve come to the right place. We can offer the full range of Exedy rebuild parts for all their clutch kits. Disks, intermediate plates, half engage rings, throw out bearing, pressure plates, friction ring – you name it! Since I spent part of today researching rebuild parts for a client’s MR2 Turbo, I figured this was a good opportunity to make this post too!

Contact z1sales@z1auto.com and we’ll be happy to assist, no matter which Exedy or Cusco kit you’ve got.

Brembo Application Guide 2013

29 Nov

Brembo 2013 Application Guide with MSRP

Brembo Brakes has just released their 2013 application guide. In the enclosed pdf you’ll find every big brake kit they offer. The Brembo High Performance Program now offers 1000+ GT/GT-R brake upgrades for the most popular sports cars, sedans, trucks and SUV’s.

GT brake kits are based around a high performance, radial-mounted fixed aluminum caliper, combined with large high 2 piece performance rotors, and performance brake lines. These kits are substantially larger than factory brakes, and offer greater heat dispersion, lower unsprung weight, and improved brake torque. The calipers come in red black or silver with the “Brembo” logo prominently displayed.

GT-R brake kits are based around a special monoblock, billet aluminum caliper. These are an even stiffer, stronger design compared to the GT kits, special stainless radiators for the pistons allowing greater heat dissipation and large 2 piece floating rotors sized up to 405mm in diameter and 34mm thick. They also include more track oriented pads vs the standard GT kit as well.

Contact us at z1sales@z1auto.com before December 21, 2012 to get the best possible pricing, before the January 2013 price increases take effect!

When only the Best Will Do (Suspension Content)

14 Nov

Ohlins is regarded in many circles as the premier suspension engineering company in the world. Their products have proven themselves on street and track for decades. Where others prefer the glitz and glam method of suspension design – using inferior dampers in a shiny box, Ohlins knows the reward is the results.

Their Road and Track series was introduced a few years ago to set the bar higher for a true, dual purpose suspension. Track days are certainly a very popular activity for performance car owners. They allow you to dial in your car, learn it’s limits, and improve your overall skill in a controlled environment. Many have the misconception that a trackable suspension means one solely suited for a race car. They couldn’t be more incorrect. The right suspension setup for a typical Club type track day is vastly different from one used on a full tilt race car. Unless you’re intending to change your entire suspension AT the track, your goal is generally a suspension setup that gives you meaningful, real world levels of adjustment regardless of the environment. The Road and Track series has set the standard here. These coilovers go from street to track without skipping a it. Their DFV valving is unique at this price point, and unlike many other ‘sweatshop’ coilovers, the damper adjustments on these actually work!

This is a great video put togehter to show the Ohlins Road and Track installed on an Evo X.

We’ve used this suspension ourselves, and can set you up with a complete package for your car. Whether you’ve got an Evo, WRX/STi, 350Z/G35, Porsche, S2000, etc, we can help put together the right Ohlins package for your needs. Contact z1sales@z1auto.com

Enkei Fall Sale

14 Nov

We have a very limited number of Enkei NT03+M and RPF1 Racing Wheels on Special right now. Only good while current quantities last

NT03+M

Enkei NT03+M

Enkei NT03+M White

The NT03+M from Enkei is an exceptionally strong, lightweight wheel that has been a very popular choice among racers in both Japan and the US. The open spoke design helps promote ample brake cooling. These wheels also feature Enkei’s dual valvestem, which allows you to accurately moniter tire pressure while adding or taking away air or nitrogen. Additional features include Enkei’s unique brace ring (the second ring on the spoke section) which ensures the wheel does not deflect or distort under the heavy loads associated with track use.

On sale in the following sizes:

18×8.5 +38, 5-120, Hyper Silver – $1132 + shipping (MSRP $1400+ shipping)
18×10.0 +25, 5-120, Hyper Silver – $1220 + shipping (MSRP $1500 + shipping)

RPF1

Enkei RPF1 Silver

The RPF1 pays homage to the MCClaren F1 Team wheels you may be familar with. This wheel is a popular choice for track and street as it combines unique good looks, extreme lightweight, and a very good value per dollar. Using Enkei’s proprietary M.A.T. and T.S. processes (a bit of alphabet soup, but it’s worth reading!), Enkei has been able to manufacture a light weight wheel at an affordable cost with very high strength. Enkei developed a new manufacturing process to produce the next aluminum wheel generation. The Most Advanced Technology (M.A.T) combines one-piece cast wheel technology with a rim forming technology called spinning process. Using this new technology of casting and rim forming by M.A.T process, is critical to improve drastically the material property and strength of the wheels. Rim-Rolled technology shapes the rim to improve material elongation withoutsacrificing the wheels hardness. Heat treatment makes the aluminum wheel stronger and more resilient to stress. The M.A.T Process makes the wheels more resistant to cracking when the wheels are put through extreme racing conditions. Wheels manufactured with the M.A.T Process are made with the minimum amount of aluminum to make the wheels lighter while remaining strong and safe.

17×9 +22, +35, or +45, 5-114.3, F1 Silver – $925 + shipping (MSRP $1140 + shipping)
17×9.5 +18 or +38, 5-114.3, F1 Silver – $959 + shipping (MSRP $1180 + shipping)
