Performance Racing Industry 2013

A friend and I recently started a "European" division to our very good friends race shop. He has been helping out our local BMW M community for a long time now and we've been doing some side work helping him out. After much planning and decision making, we decided to end the year with a bang and become an official European car tuning shop catering to our local car tuning community. As many know, in any industry a close network can truly be fruitful. As a team we decided to go to the Performance Racing Industry trade show and convention in Indianapolis, IN.

The convention center was massive. There were endless aisles of jaw dropping parts. It was a ton of fun sitting down and talking with the big names in the industry. Rest assured, we left Indiana with a new wealth of knowledge and great friendship with partners in the business. Exciting stuff to come for 2014.

In the mean time, enjoy some of the quick snaps I took throughout our adventure.

Darton Sleeves attended showcasing some of the great cylinder wall strengthening tactics


Nissan R35 GTR sitting aggressive at the Hawk Performance Booth



Five Star Race Car Bodies hung a nice BMW polycarbonate front windshield for display


Stunning BBS RE GT4s were on display. The OE wheel for the BMW E92 M3 GT4!



Bilstein Shocks showcased a ton of their wide range of dampers and coilovers


ATL Fuel Cells displaying their diverse setups


Holy Grail of dampers…Penske!


Fluiddyne brought over their OE replacement for the E46. Definitely looked to be a thicker core.


Anyone who knows me personally, knows my weakness for Volk Racing Wheels. Here’s a magnesium wheel similar to what was run on the RLL BMW E92 M3 GT

More JRZ!


The winner of the 24 Hours of Thunderhill rocking JRZ dampers!


HRE Wheels showed off their bright finishes!


I love E30s…especially track spec’d ones


Momo brought a 997.2 GT3 Cup Car



ITG filters! The producers of the Evolve CF Airbox Filter



Speechless…

Alcon’s mesmerizing rotors

We love using Vibrant exhaust pieces for our custom fabrication setups.
