Volk Racing TE037 6061

While maintaining strength, weight has been strategically removed on the spoke-ends, spoke-backs, and overall design. FOR EXAMPLE: the 19×8.5 TE037 6061 starts from 8.15kg… while the TE37ULTRA starts at 9.7kg in the same size. The wheel comes in a new Matte Gunblack, to emphasize the sharp lines of the new...

Boomba Racing – OEM Wing Risers

Available for the Ford Focus ST and Fiesta ST . Cost – $145 Boomba wing risers allow you to modify your OEM Fiesta/Focus ST wing positioning… in the amount of time it takes to order a pizza. I for one, really like the concept of these utilizing your existing ST spoiler. And I love how they make the OEM ST proportions look even more jacked & battle ready. Plus – Boomba wing risers bypass all the headaches (and costs!) of buying, scheduling, paint-matching, and properly fitting an entirely new aftermarket wing. BEWARE of knock-offs. You can probably find cheaper-quality imitation products online...

GM Performance Exhaust

So I got myself a new Sierra Denali.  I was happy.  Then I wasn’t…because I’m dumb and if it’s stock…then it’s gotta change.  So I rang up GM Performance and they sent over their new exhaust system for the Sierra 6.2.  It has truly transformed the truck!  Instead of just silently puttering around town…it signals it’s presence with a roar and rumble.  I.  LOVE.  IT.   The best part is that there is no drone!  GM provides a flash upgrade to the stock Bose system to help eliminate any unwanted drone in the cabin.  Couple that with the valved...

Sylvania Cube-X lights

About a year ago, I had the chance to have a few beers with one of the engineers from Sylvania. She was a French woman, currently living in Asia, speaking to me in English… using a level of vocabulary & terminology that I could barely follow. Pretty sure she was a spy, but either way, she taught me a lot about the science behind LED lighting. And she taught me a lot about the games that many lighting companies play – when it comes to rating lumens (light output). The spy wouldn’t name names, but she said you’d be floored...

Fiesta ST Chassis Bracing w/ TB Performance Products

  Traction Bar – $129 ^^^^^^ TB’s Traction Bar will: 1) Reduce wheel-hop. 2) Reduce torque-steer. 3) Improve cornering. It does this, by tying together the driver & passenger A-arms under the chassis, thus strengthening & bracing the front suspension… and eliminating deflection.   Wheel-hop occurs when you launch a car, and there is a deflection in the A-arms. Grippy surfaces can magnify wheel-hop, but the premise is: On launch, the front bushings in the A-arms deflect downward, and the rears deflect upward – violently & abruptly. And it creates a rhythmic, uncontrolled up/down banging, known as the ‘hop’....
