El Capitan

30 Jun

peugotclimbdance

This is what the Spanish settlers called this famous mountain in the Colorado Rockies. Standing just over 14,000 feet, it’s one of the tallest mountains in the US, as well as being a national landmark. And since the early 1900’s, it’s been home to one of the most heart pumping races in all of motorsport.

The Race to the Clouds as it’s come to be known, used to be run on a course that was paved in some parts, and unpaved gravel in others. The cojones it takes to run here are massive; big heavy brass ones. In 2011, the road was fully paved. However that doesn’t make it all that “safe”. The course measures just over 14 miles long, and rises 4700 feet during its 156 turns. Between the hairy turns, the normal mechanical attricion rate, combined with the effects the altitude has on anything with a fuel burning engine, it’s always a blast to watch

This year we may see some new course records broken – to tune into the live feed, Racecar Engineering magazine has the event live streaming on their site.

Here’s the live feed link: http://www.racecar-engineering.com/articles/features/test-page/

While you’re at it, if you’ve never seen the famous short film Climb Dance, it’s most certainly worth a watch.

New Titanium Brake Shims!!!

8 Sep

IMG_0026

We just had the first batch of titanium shims done and they are ready to go. It’s a relatively cheap piece of added insurance for those track guys out there who have been running into the issue of cooking their brakes.

The current applications available are for the Subaru STi, Subaru 4-pot calipers, Mitusbishi EVO, Hyundai  Genesis Coupe (track edition),  and the Nissan 350Z. Additional applications for aftermarket calipers such as the Stoptech ST-40, Stoptech ST-60 and Endless calipers are under development and will be released soon.

MSRP is $100 but we are working out package deals with fluid, pads and/or lines. Let us know if you are interested in a set and for combo pricing!

And in the Beginning….

We don’t normally think of Hyundai as being a “hot” manufacturer, but I must say – they nailed it with the Genesis coupe.  It obviously took many years of selling POS Excel’s and Scoupe’s to be able to manufacture something this attractive!  It’s a better proportioned version of the G35/37 in my opinion.  A good customer of ours just forwarded us some pics of some modded Genesis coupes.  If pricing is on point, this should be a good selling car for them.
