Looking for a quick and affordable way to reduce the body roll, and increase the cornering ability of your 2003-2008 350Z, or 2003-2007 G35 coupe (or RWD sedan), then the ST Swaybar set should be on your To Do list. These are a solid steel set of bars front and rear, and unlike some competitors, include the required bushings. At $355 for the front and rear set, it’s a hard deal to beat.

AIM GT Sport Steering Wheel

30 Jul

AIMGTwheel

The last wheel you’ll ever need!

This new wheel is the ultimate for sports and GT drivers, seeking an all in one solution. It combines critical engine data via the engine ecu, combined with GPS track data, and camera data, in a series of customizable pages. Allowing you instant access to multiple channels of critical data. In addition, it features customizable shift lights at the top of the rim, as well as customizable alarms for various user-programmable warning thresholds. There are also user-customizable multi-function buttons allowing you to enable/disable various functions such as traction control, pit speed limiter, radio communication, etc). Using a sequential transmission? No problem – optional paddle shifters are also offered for a seamless integrated solution. Data derived from lap times, speeds, etc can then be played back by the driver at the end of a session right on the wheel display. It’s thoughtfully produced in either 320mm or 350mm diameters, with carbon, Alcantara, and leather for the ultimate combination of strength, weight and grip. The leather features a special cool system design, which reflects sun rays and keeps the grip surface cool to the touch.

The Low Down

adv005audib7lownotslow

Audi B7 Avant on a fresh set ADV1 ADV005. While I’m not a real fan of the tucked look, I just know that with maybe a 1/2 ride height rise, this car would be an awesome daily driver. The wheel design looks awesome with the long lines that the Avant’s have. Contact z1sales@z1auto.com for all your ADV1 custom wheel needs.

Upping the Power in your WRX/STi

18 Jul

tomeititaniumexhauststi

Tomei Japan has just released 2 new items for the Subaru WRX and STi.

First up is an all new manifold design – a 4-2-2 setup for twin scroll cars. This will fit the GDB, GRB and GVB chassis. The primaries are 42.7mm, and the up-pipe collector is enlarged vs stock at 45mm. it also weighs 7.49 lbs less than stock as well! Like all the Tomei Expreme Exhaust products, it comes with all quality gaskets and hardware (no cheesy paper crap here!), heat wrap with ties. This is a true motorsport grade part, without the exotic price tag. Full details are on the attached PDF flyer

In addition, Tomei has released their new Expreme Titanium exhaust for the GR/GV STi (hatch and sedan). Thoughtfully produced in both JDM spec and USDM spec, so there is a version for everyone, regardless of your downpipe spec, and regardless of where in the world you live! This is the ultimate in lightweight, high power exhausts for these cars. Traditionally, Titanium exhausts elicit want and fear in a customers eyes. Everyone loves the look, loves the weight, loves the sound…and hates the price. Tomei has broken that mould. Their titanium exhausts are of exemplary quality, intelligently designed, expertly manufactured, and are far more affordable than many lesser exhausts. The US Spec exhaust weighs 34.8 lbs LESS than stock, the JDM exhaust weighs 35.3 lbs LESS than stock – and this is just for the catback! It’s a slip fit design, so no drama with leaking gaskets. But like many modular motorsport level exhaust components, it uses spring clamps to ensure a tight, neat seal. For those who are using this on the street, it includes a removable silencer to keep net volume at a tolerable level. Or, run it without the silence, and wake the devil.

For best pricing on both of these components, or a combo with a Tomei downpipe, turbo, or any other item, drop us a line at z1sales@z1auto.com
