2017+ 86 & BRZ FLEX Z, FLEX A, & MONO SPORT Coilover Testing

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 […]

The End of The Scion Era

The End of The Scion Era

It’s sad to hear that the Scion marque has reached its end. With just over 13 years of production, the brand made a huge impact on the sporty compact car market, and has helped manufacturers like ourselves by being able to offer suspension packages for very customizable platforms. After all, that was the appeal of […]

Our In-House Engineer’s personal Scion FR-S

While most of us are pretty much desk jockeys here at TEIN USA (just kidding!), some of our staff enjoy spending their free time at the local race track. Local to us southern Californians is something like a 1 hour drive on average. One such racing enthusiast is our very own in-house engineer, Shuichiro (a.k.a.- […]

New Products for January 2015!

We’ve finally received our first shipment from TEIN Japan for 2015! Actually, we were expecting these items at the beginning of the year (Jan. 6th, to be exact). However, due to continuing strikes at the Port of Long Beach, we had to delay this shipment for way longer than expected. But, now these new parts […]

Super Lap Battle by Global Time Attack Results

We’re glad to see some of our friends back at it at this past Friday’s Super Lap Battle by Global Time Attack, which took place at Buttonwillow Raceway Park! As far as TEIN-equipped cars go, we had Sportcar Motion’s Acura Integra Type R on Super Racing dampers, which ran a 1:52.886 just last year. We […]

Carbing Tower Bar for Scion FR-S (and Subaru BRZ)

Our in-house engineer, Shuichiro (a.k.a. “Shu”, for simplicity’s sake), has a bit of a tuning bug. He can’t seem to leave any of his cars alone. With the exception being that Toyota Prius he had for about a half year. Word on the street is he’s modifying a baby stroller for his daughter. Supposed to […]

Another Rally xD Podium at NEFR

Another Rally xD Podium at NEFR

Our favorite rally team, the TEIN-supported Rally xD, had a pretty good weekend at round 6 of Rally America,  the New England Forest Rally event. Although not at the top of the podium, they were able to secure a 2nd place finish. As they had dealt with in past events, a few troubles came their […]
