The Volk Racing insignia is 3D machines into the spoke along with other markers to ensure this wheels’ quality and authenticity.

20 years ago, RAYS Engineering debuted the original Volk Racing TE37 forged mono-block wheel. Little did they know this would become their flagship design and usher in an incessantly successful line of iterations; SL, RT, and ULTRA just to name a few.

However, despite all the in-house spin-offs and illegal imitations, the OG TE37 design still holds a certain je ne sais quoi that has never been replicated. Celebrate 20 years of success and own a set of iconic wheels with this limited run of 19-Inch TE37 Wheels!

Why? Because RACECAR


Lately it seems like Nissan is the only Japanese Automaker rolling out cars for the tuner comunity and race inclined. Not that Mitsubishi, Subaru, or Honda don’t have merit, but when was the last time those companies released a special edition or race specific model… Nissan on the other hand seems to be pushing out the Nismo edition after Nismo edition, even the fact that they’ve released the GT-R stateside is a big step. Now they decided to one up the Nismo 370Z and release a special edition competition spec 370Z Nismo RC. It won’t be street legal but that’s fine, it’s nice that they’re releasing special editions and competition use only vehicles. Check out some more pictures and a the full press release with specs on the next page.

Stupidly Retarded GT-R Powered Renault

This might be the work of a newbie engineering or a genius evil mastermind. Regardless, this is one of the most ridiculous engine swaps and builds I’ve ever seen… The Renault Dacia Duster is a tiny car (something like a scion) and in preparation for Pikes Peak the Dacia team decided to slap on a fiberglass/carbon body, a thousand point roll cage, some custom ohlin suspension, a double wing fit for a plane, and a twin turbo 850 HP V6 (the the R35 GT-R). When you see it on the track you’ll think its about to go super sonic.

Part 2 – 2011 Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg

So maybe you were inspired by my last post and you drove yourself to St. Petersburg. Or maybe not.. I think the Inside Kami Executives took the day off so I held things down. I know you can’t all make it, we have readers from all over the world so hopefully I can summarize it for you. Not just with a few words but with some of the photos from the hundreds I took.

The event this year was just as good as prior years if not better given the great weather (no rain). Again, the World Challenge races caught my attention all weekend. These are cars you see on the street and the drivers have come up through the grass roots events. Some of the race teams competing in the World Challenge are even  family owned teams. You can feel the passion and see the home grown skills in the paddock area with what looks like a group of friends wrenching on their car in their boys apartment complex parking lot. Just like anything there is a range.. from home grown to top dollar as you work up the classes. The Truspeed team and their GT3’s are SiCK!!  Reinforces my need to own a 911 in 5 years but just like my budget would have to change to own one…  so would yours to compete with them.

I am rambling on now so I will wrap it up… the sights, sounds, smell are all so intense at these events. The crowds that follow Indy Car are insane.  All three days, I was all in the first day, few hours on Saturday and again all day Sunday. Each day relaxing and looking for new spots to shot in the process, taking it all in. Strangely peaceful despite the scream of 10,000+ RPM. Something you have to experience if you haven’t yet. So with that… more photos that I felt worthy.
