Beginning to Look Good

I haven’t been content with the way my engine looks for while. Everyone complements me on how clean it looks, but I have never liked it. I have way too much clutter and it just doesn’t have the look I want. Since my style is changing, I want something that is clean and has a timeless look. I dropped off my Three Speed scatter shield off at Denver Bumper today to get chrome plated. They did an awesome job polishing some 997TT wheels I took there a while ago, so I have confidence in their work. I don’t really want have too much chrome in the engine bay, but just enough to set it off with the other parts I have powder coated.

I also ordered SPC forged aluminum upper control arms from Vivid Racing too. Those will take a while to get, but they should be worth the wait.

997TT Ridin’ on Volks

My buddy Dan at Vivid Racing took on a fun project for a 997TT customer. They really liked the Volk TE37 Time Attack wheels but unfortunately, Volk does not make them yet for the Porsche! So he had the wheels powdercoated a gloss black to match his car then we had the red stripe painted around it. Throw in the Volk carbon center caps and wrap the tires with some Pirelli and BAMM!

The wheels are 19×8.5 and 19×12. The fronts weight about 18lbs and the rear about 20lbs. 1 piece forged wheel. The shipment of REAL time attack wheels comes in end of december.

I love the new Porsche 997TT, I remember when I had the chance to drive one on the street. It’s definitely one of my dream cars (with a ski rack).

Koenigsegg CCXR

1018hp, 0-62 in 2.9sec, estimated top speed of 248mph. Enough said, besides the fact I have the same Stack dash display as this car.

ROBISPEC Evo

Another clean purpose-built Evo for Time Attack. I love the orange Enkei’s and Voltex canards. Enjoy.

CE28n’s on 2g

Another beautiful 2g Eclipse that is rolling on Volk CE28n’s. There need to be more DSM’s like this one. Simplicity at its best. Picture sucks though.

Always Remember

Never forget that when you buy Rota’s, people aren’t pointing at your car because they think it looks cool, it’s because they know better.

Knock off part companies kill the industry, the real innovators, the people that bring the knock off companies parts to copy. If you want to save a dollar to kill your favorite tuner; cool, thanks. Bye Rays Engineering, bye ASM, bye HKS, bye Work…

I have preached safety before–it’s a valid point. The point isn’t always about fitment, quality, or safety although most JDM parts are made to very high quality, the point is about theft of design.

It’s messed up that no one talks about this because the thieves in this industry have the money, the marketing and the power to make it acceptable.
