Shout out to Super Fans from Puerto Rico!

Posted by Gruppe S On Monday, May 24, 2010 0 comments

A couple weeks ago the team landed in Hartsfield-Jackson Airport in Atlanta, Georgia for Round 2 of Formula Drift. It was about 3:30-4:00am local time, and we were waiting to get our rental car when a group of people walked up to us.

It was a group of fans that came all the way from Puerto Rico to attend Formula Drift Round 2 in Atlanta. It was inspiring to see some seriously dedicated drift fans, so we hooked them up with gear from our sponsors, Seibon, Genius Tools, ACT, Hankook, and HPI Racing.

We @ Gruppe-S wanted to just give a serious shout out to the Puerto Rican Import Community for taking it up a couple notches, especially to these super fans for being hardcore.

Gruppe S Improves Short Blocks!

Posted by Gruppe S On Thursday, May 20, 2010 0 comments

The owner of our company has always pursued improving quality or the parts we sell or selling the latest and greatest. I think that really excited him to bring the newest technology to the import industry. He has been complaining to JE Pistons about improving the quality of their already great pistons and pushing the envelope, so Sean Crawford and Nick Diblasi at JE pistons succomed to his rants and is introducing the new forged FSR piston. The new piston is stronger and lighter and they did some crazy FEA analysis and have proof to show us. I don't know if this was meant for public view, but we have don't it anyways.

I know it is easy to improve a piston and charge the end users more, we can all do that. The crazy thing is, JE pistons is going to now offer this piston at the same price. Sorry for all the guys that got the old pistons, but this should be coming soon.

ACT - The Choice of Champions

Posted by Gruppe S On Wednesday, May 19, 2010 0 comments
How awesome, ACT is going to be using our GTR R35 in some of the future ads!
This statement is so true, Dynamic Autosports has been an ACT customer for 15 years and have really cherished the relationship with ACT. During this time, they have always made great products and have always priced so that that others couldn't bring you this much clutch for the same money. They have always supported the racers and allowed companies to trust their good products over the years.
Yes we are running a stroked VQ35 in our GTR R35 but we are developing a VR38DETT engine program while we run this motor. The stroked VQ35DE has really made some big torque for a drift car and held up to the abuse that Robbie puts it through. His constant clutch kicking and launches off the line have busted dog rings and transmissions, but the ACT clutch has been bulletproof. I bet that is why Tanner uses ACT in his winning Scion TC. As a competitor I wish he didn't sometimes :) J/K Tanner!

Don't forget they make some great clutches not only for the VQ35DE but the Subaru STi and the Mitsubishi EVOs.

Inside secret, we will be working on a clutch and flywheel package for the VR38DETT, maybe some of your maniacs might get lucky and find a motor out there and install one in your 350Z or G35! We will have a solution for you in the near future.

What's all the hype about these billet GTR R35 pistons?

Posted by Gruppe S On Wednesday, May 12, 2010 0 comments
JE takes the stock pistons and draws and engineers it into Solidworks engineering program.

The block is carefully measure with the stroker crank and all the clearances are measured and drawn into the engineering program

Even the oil squirters are carefully drawn out to make sure that everything is perfect. No other piston manufacturers takes the stock crank, stroker crank, stock block, sleeved block, stock connecting rods, stroker connecting rods, and the oil squirters to design 1 set of pistons. This is going to be a truly engineered pistons exclusively for the GTR R35 and every inch of the piston will be machined. These pistons will have everything unnecessary machined out of them for maximum weight saving and the ability to handle 1600hp. I dare you to make it!
