Discounted Coilovers for Formula Drift Irwindale

We’ll be attending this year’s Formula Drift event at Irwindale Speedway on October 13-14, 2017. Rumors abound that this will be the last Formula D event at this specific track (which has been the same rumor for the past five years or so; seems to be a legitimate claim this time). As always, we’ll have […]

Japanese Classic Car Show (September 23, 2017)

Japanese Classic Car Show (September 23, 2017)

This weekend is the Japanese Classic Car Show in Long Beach, by the Queen Mary! We’ve been attending for the past 5 years, and while it may not seem like our kind of customer base, we do get our fair share of product inquiries for suspension for older Japanese vehicles. We’re not necessarily posting about […]

1992-1995 Honda Civic Suspension Testing

1992-1995 Honda Civic Suspension Testing

While this car has been out of production for well over 20 years now, we still find that the 1992-1995 Honda Civic is still a good seller in terms of our suspension products. Many older vehicles don’t really fare so well when it comes to aftermarket parts. Many parts being discontinued due to little demand. […]

What is Wrought Aluminum?

What is Wrought Aluminum?

We have some literature about our products that explain the type of materials we use in our suspension kits. One of the terms we hear for our spring seats and seat locks (for adjusting ride height, for example) and upper spring seats/adaptors  is that they’re made from “wrought aluminum”. If you’re like me, then maybe […]

We just finished up some testing on the 2017 Subaru BRZ (and which would of course affect the 2017 Toyota 86). While the vehicles aren’t drastically different compared to 2012-2016 model years of the aforementioned vehicles (the 86 previously named the Scion FR-S), there are some small changes in suspension that affect how our existing […]

2016+ Mazda Miata (ND chassis) Testing

This week we had a new ND chassis Miata in for testing. FINALLY, after well over a year, we have our hands on one and can now verify fitment and do road testing. We must say that, even though we can technically just special order available kits from TEIN Japan, we’ve found that there is, […]

2018 Toyota Camry Pace Car

2018 Toyota Camry Pace Car

Once again, we’ve been given the opportunity to work closely with the guys at Toyota Motorsports as they build the brand new, redesigned Toyota Camry set to be released this Summer. As we have done in the past few years, we’ve helped them develop suspension for the pace cars being used at NASCAR events nationwide. […]

The Importance of Tire Pressures

The Importance of Tire Pressures

It’s quite clear that customers come to us looking to increase handling performance for their vehicles. After all, suspension upgrades are some of the most commonly made changes to vehicles. Fortunately, we’ve continued to make improvements to suspension technology that has proven results. However, one overlooked aspect in handling is monitoring tire pressures. Of course, […]
