Lucas at Nike sent us some drawings on a possible shoe design for our drift team next year. I really like them, just wanted to get your guys' opinion?

If you don't like the colors, too bad. We are sponsored by Hankook tires and black, silver, grey, white, and orange are their colors. It's like Halloween, enjoy!

KW Suspension on the GT-R

Posted by Gruppe S On Friday, December 11, 2009 0 comments
KW has been a constant supporter of Dynamic Autosports, well for the 2010 season, they have committed to sponsoring the GTR R-35 with a 3 way adjustable suspension. The great part about KW is not only the product, but they fly a suspension engineer to help set it up. The product is great, but their service and after sales car is just unmatched by anyone in this industry. I hope the rest of the guys in Formula D has race partners like this, good luck keeping up.

Real Men of Genius, Mr Suspension designer tuner guy, WE SALUTE YOU!

Wrecked magazine posts the future Nissan Skyline Hankook R35 GTR that were featured on the Forza game. I don't know who did it, but it was a damn good job. The details are incredible and our hats are off to you.

We wish it was as easy to build a real drift car as it is to build on on Forza.

Jason Fajardo, our body guy is getting crazy for 2010 already. We decided to really improve the car next year so that Eric O'Sullivan has no excuses but to bring home a bunch of hardware. Jason decideds to cut away all excess weight and add the Seibon carbon rear doors to really lighten up the chassis. Not only that, we are going to be throwing in a 2.7 BC stroked Gruppe S prepared race engine.

Who said the EJ25 can't hang with the big boy V8s. Our engine is proof and will continue to show the racing community that the EJ25 is capable of a lot more than what most people expect.

Stay tuned we will be getting dyno horsepower numbers on this bad boy soon.

Until Next Time!


1st VR38DETT to get sleeved

Posted by Gruppe S On Monday, December 07, 2009 0 comments
Gruppe-S is working with Darton to create the first sleeved VR38DETT block. This block is required for for our target 1000hp and the 4.3 liter stroker kit under development. The machining is going to start next week, we just finalized the details of the sleeve. The ductile iron is going to be same stuff they use on the NHRA motors, that boost up to 100psi. I believe that Darton is going to be sleeving our block first, first in the world, most likely.
Stayed tuned for more information.

Gruppe S has partnered with JE Pistons to introduce the first VR38 billet piston in America. The VR38 engine is Nissan's flagship engine, Gruppe-S went all out with JE Pistons to develop a new innovative design for the Nissan GTR powerplant. JE Pistons's engineers are pulling out all the stop in creating an exclusive piston for the VR38 with Gruppe-S, as the marketing and distribution partner. The information being released by JE Pistons is currently limited as they are still in the development process for the new piston, but they guarentee it to be the best piston out on the market. The pistons are billet and machined, developed through extensive engineerring, guarenteeing accuracy in production and perfection in performance.

JE Piston engineers are working to remove every unnecessary ounce out of the piston while maintaining a temendous 1200 horsepower goal. The pistons will be offered in a variety of bores and currently there are rumors floating around of a stroker kit coming out for the VR38DETT.

There have been talks and rumors of a 4.3 Liter kit. How does that sound? We'll keep you up to date as we hear further developments from JE Pistons.

The Dynamic Autosports/Gruppe-S Mighty MINI Wins The Redline Time Attack Finals

Once upon a time, back in the day, there were only a handful of Mini's on the road i
n the United States - only imported versions straight from Britain, with the steering wheel on the "wrong" side. There wasn't anything that could touch those four-passenger go-kart-like cars for canyon cruising, nothing street-legal anyway. They held to the road like slot-cars and you could practically carry one in the back of a pickup as a spare. Then, for a number of reasons, they all but disappeared completely for many years - except for those collectors stashed away. That is until April of 2001, when the BMW Group wisely began producing the "MINI" the successor to the original Mini.

Eddie Kim, Vice President of Dynamic Autosports/Gruppe-S in Lake Forest, California, and his crew recently prepped their Yellow JCW MINI to do battle at the Redline Time Attack Finals. The field was deep that weekend at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, with many teams in attendance and championships in multiple classes at stake. This was their first event, and the goal was to simply go out and be competitive and to showcase the performance potential of the MINI to all their industry partners, racers, and enthusiasts. "We are preparing a spec series for MINI and this particular car is our test bed," says Kim. "The car has some basic modifications, which we believe will not void the factory warranty. That way consumers can buy a new MINI, do the modifications, and still keep the car under warranty. This is our goal, and that is why we have chosen the K&N intake, because of their pursuit to be a smog legal product." What the team ended up taking home with them was First Place in the Stock Front Wheel Drive class, along with an abundance of respect and admiration from the other teams and spectators.

The MINI performed flawlessly and flat-out ran away from the field. In their first attack session they ran a best of 1:59.14, which would have been good enough for second overall in modified class, and third in the street class as well. In their final attack the team again ran a sub-2:00 on the 2.5-mile course, clinching a surprising, but much-deserved first place. "The chassis itself is great right out of the factory box. We then modified the car with a K&N intake system," informs Kim. "We also added a Mega Mini prototype downpipe, Eibach suspension, Mega Mini intercooler, Mega mini spec brake pads, Enkei NT03 wheels and Yokohama AD08 Neov tires - and of course some bad-ass driving from Dez Ballard." "We will continue to test and make some alignment settings and possibly re-flash the ECU. We are trying to keep all the parts legal and low cost so that MINI enthusiasts can have a lot of fun and be competitive."

The Yellow JCW will be one display and a part of the driving experience at their Los Angeles Road Tour, November 21-22, at the Home Depot Center. Find K&N products for your vehicle using the K&N application search then use the K&N dealer search to find a K&N dealer in your part of the world.
