Bride Japan Partners Up

Late 2016 Bride Japan partnered up with the Dome Corporation, a company that focuses on building race cars in the Japanese GT divisions. Their main goal is to work in conjunction to release the worlds most advanced racing seats. It did not take long for this partnership to release quite the stunner.img_5823The Bride Hyper is an industry leading FIA approved racing seat for high performance racing, think profession JGTC requirements. The CFRP shell and aluminum seat bracket come in at an industry leading 16.2 kilograms.

The Return of the TE37

dura_555Two years back Rays Engineering showed a TE37 prototype featuring machined spokes which made the 22×9 wheel only 17 pounds. After some adjustments Rays settled on the new TE037 DURA which is a little more extreme than the original prototype. Big note to point out is that this new TE037 is constructed from A7075 versus A6061, which makes it that much better. All in all expect the TE037 to make a lot of waves.

2015 saw the emergence of the TE37 ULTRA, probably the closest iteration to the original TE37 since it was released 20 years back. While 20 and 19 inch sizes got the new treatment, 18’s were left out. saga_557Enter TE37 SAGA, these are exclusively 18 inch and come in all the sizes under the sun. And best of all this is pretty darn close to the OG model and comes standard with a Bronze finish. Pictures and full details are still up in the air, but expect more info this upcoming week!

 

Player 2 (Weds Wheels) Has Entered

Weds Wheels has been quietly building up quite the arsenal in it’s performance wheel line-up. To this day the TC-105N is the lightest cast wheel in the market (topping the all mighty Enkei RPF1), however their entire line-up featured Flow Formed Cast wheels only. This kept them out of certain high-end performance markets with the lack of forged options. 15874781_1332836920071537_7828604514629935141_oThis year that all changes, as WedsSport released the FT-117 (a Closed-Die Mold Form Forged wheel comparable to the likes of Rays and BBS). Sizing is currently slated for large performance vehicles, 20-inch sizing, but a forged wheel from WedsSports bodes well for future designs!

Trust Power: GReddy Japan

GReddy has been teasing their Sirius gauges for a year now, but this year they will be debuting the production models. The gauges feature a futuristic look that will make any build pop. They also come in a range of displays to suit nearly every need!12440438_942185555817957_4014169174829916915_oGReddy is also debuting a series of revised products for the Toyota 86 Kouki. Expect a range of goodies for performance catered specifically for the new Toyota 86.

The Advan Racing GT is being released in 21 inch sizes, the RS-DF Progressive is being revamped for 19 inch sizes, and the RG-D2 are being released in 15, 16, and 17’s.

BEATRUSH Japan for the BRZ/86 – I’ll let the photo’s speak for themselves.

** Beatrush Front Beam Brace –

Beatrush resolved this issue by creating a stronger more rigid bar that will improve torsional chassis rigidity to suppress the movement of the frame.

Screen Shot 2013-08-10 at 1.26.30 AMScreen Shot 2013-08-10 at 1.26.47 AMWhile at the same time lowering front weight by using much lighter components that are structurally designed to be strong.

**Beatrush Rear Frame Brace –

This completely replaces the heavy oem rear bumper beam for a much lighter and rigid rear frame brace. Screen Shot 2013-08-10 at 1.28.01 AM Recommended for those that want to eliminate as much weight as possible and reduce rear frame torsion.

**Beatrush Rear Member Support Bar-

This is probably one of the cheapest and a very effective mod that will enhance the BRZ’s & FR-S’ suspension.  Screen Shot 2013-08-10 at 1.28.34 AMBy inhibiting the movement of the rear sway bar base, this will reduce vertical distortion caused by the sway bar, both increasing chassis rigidity and allowing the rear sway bar to perform better.
