TFMike is coming in hot!

Change is constant, and Mike’s S14 knows all about it. This season, Rays Engineering created a brand new design and called it the ZE40. Mike opted for the bronze set in the 18×10.5/18×12 sizing. I think it fits the car’s style better than the Work Meisters from the previous setup.

Stay tuned for an upcoming feature on this car.

Product: Rocket Bunny 86 Ver.3 Wing

Rocket Bunny is all the buzz nowadays along side the FR-S/BRZ chassis. There is a constant flow of aftermarket support for these cars and it’s great seeing different innovations and designs surfacing. One of the products that will become more readily is the Rocket Bunny 86 aero ver.3.

Unlike the previous two versions, this is the most sleek and simple. The ver.3 wing embodies the subtle curvature of the car, while still keeping its aggressive, bold signature which Rocket Bunny is known for.

Feature: Austin’s RB-Powered 240SX

Who: Austin Zarecky
Occupation: Student at Ferris State University
Car: Nissan 240SX Hatchback

Austin started off with a vision for this car many years ago, back when he had a different rust stricken shell. Six years ago, he came to Touge Factory hoping to have a purposefully built car created. His plan was to build a drift-oriented car for the track, however the original motor had constant engine problems. After thinking things through, Austin decided to do something a little different. He came in with money and a different shell, and decided to drop an RB26DETT, from a Nissan Skyline GT-R, into it. After some time, his vision came to life.

TF: Hi Austin, can you tell us what was your first car?

AZ: Buick Regal Supercharged. I totaled it by sliding off the road during a winter storm into a pole. The pole came smashing down on my roof and it missed me by only a little bit. That accident taught me not to street race and to leave fast driving to the track. Now that I think about it, this happened right before I went to New Zealand.

Product: Scion FR-S / Subaru BRZ Rear Lower Control Arms

The FR-S & BRZ has been receiving a great amount of support in aftermarket upgrades. Based on the car’s heritage and its intended purpose, purpose driven parts that will improve the car are readily available for the chassis.

One of the best things to do is to upgrade the stock strut and spring combo with a set of coilovers. STANCE has that department covered with a few different models available. However, there is a great upgrade that works great when coupled with STANCE coilovers and that is the rear lower control arms. Along with the arms, another necessary part to a lowered FR-S/BRZ are SPL toe arms.

TAKATA has improved the already very high quality line-up by adding more variety.
Everyone knows the quality of these harnesses, and now they add affordability without sacrificing quality!
The DRIFT series starting at $199…and the Race series with the black harness.

In additional unique bendable stainless steel mount bracket for the lap belts allow for easy installation to factory seat belt mounting points.

The Takata Series of belts, manufactured by Takata Racing in Germany, are uniquely designed for safe installation in passenger cars with factory seats. The belts meet both FMVSS (US) & ECE (European) standards for “Street Legal” use. Both belts incorporate Takata ASM® technology and bendable stainless steel mounting hardware allowing installation to factory seat belt mounting points without effecting the operation of factory seat belts. Takata DRIFT belts set new standard style and safety of aftermarket, Street Legal belts. DRIFT belts come in both Takata Green and Black to match any interior scheme with style!

BRZ Testing

20120406-115915.jpg

We got a chance to drive a BRZ. First impressions were good. Pretty roomy inside and nice supportive seats. The rear seats are good for carrying groceries, nothing more. Although this model was an auto, the trans shifted quick and firm. Intake noise was surprisingly loud, which was good, makes you want to keep your foot down. Continue reading BRZ Testing
