Customer Spotlight: Widebody S2000 with Volk Racing TE37 Wheels
April 24, 2018
The S2000 is one of the most popular JDM cars to ever exist. It had a high revving VTEC engine, great and balanced handling, and great looks. Being such an awesome driverâs car, it makes sense that tons of enthusiasts own S2000s and modify them. Of course, the basic bolt-on modifications are popular, but crazy and unique builds are also becoming more popular. A customer of ours with a widebody S2000 just picked up some new TE37 wheels through us. The wheels specs are 18Ã10.5 up front and 18Ã11 in the rear. Quite a wide setup, but thatâs the advantage of having a widebody kit.
Here’s What Makes Remmen Steel Brake Rotors so Good
April 24, 2018
There are three main functions that a vehicle needs to perform throughout its life: accelerating, decelerating, and turning. Without the ability to stop quickly and consistently, accidents would happen non-stop. Braking performance is not something you want to cheap out on because your life depends on those parts. Modern brakes work by squeezing two brake pads against a rotor. The pads remain stationary inside the caliper, while the rotor rotates with the wheel. This design uses friction to slow the vehicle, and friction results in massive amounts of heat. The ability to dissipate that heat properly is paramount in a quality brake system.
If youâve heard the name Brixton Forged, you probably associate it with high-end forged wheels for cars like the Porsche 911. You wouldnât be wrong for associating their name with those kinds of products because up until now thatâs what they offered. Brixton Forged decided to mix it up and jump into the off-road world. There are three wheels being offered with one variation of each, totaling in six new wheel designs. Each one of the six wheels will be available in one-piece and two-piece configurations. All these variations give you a ton of options, allowing you to pick the perfect wheel for your needs.
Sound Check: Archie Hamilton’s BMW M2 with a QuickSilver Exhaust
April 21, 2018
The F87 M2 has been a massive hit amongst BMW enthusiasts all over the world. It represents what the M3 once was: a small and nimble RWD car. Although itâs nearly perfect straight from the factory, us enthusiasts know there is always room for improvement. Being that the F87 M2 is turbocharged, it loves bolt-on modifications like an intake or exhaust system. By letting the air flow more freely, the turbocharger experiences less resistance and can make more boost. Producing more boost results in more power. Plus, the M2 is an excellent little sports car, and you want to be able to hear it when youâre ripping through a back road. These things combined are what makes aftermarket exhaust systems for the M2 so popular.
