JDM x FLOSS: Kyo-Ei Crystal Lugs (Only 50 Sets Ever Made)

Posted by Gruppe S On Monday, April 25, 2011 0 comments

If you have seen VIP / Bippu you have seen Crystal Lugs. But rather than having a removable piece where the crystal is attached like a lot of the other brands, these bad boys are a solid single piece lug.

Don't be fooled that these lugs like dainty, they are made by Kyo-ei, the same people who brought you the ENTIRE Project KIC's lineup including the infamous R40's.

So what makes these lugs different? There are only 50 sets ever made! Talk about being exclusive. Brian and his LS460L are going to keep it the opposite of lowkey. Pics will follow soon of his car equipped with his new Weds and these shiny new additions.

Bippu Files: Kranze Bazreia Crazy Gangster

Anyone can appreciate the fine art of VIP. Reppin the Bippu style is a very specific task, first you buy the wheels and then you buy the car and modify it to fit the wheels.

Saw this set floating around the shop and I had to take a quick shot. Another set of Kranze's leaving our doorsteps from WEDS Sport USA, preparing to floss. Gorgeous...

Along with these insane wheels, he ordered some insane lug nuts

Time Attack Scion TC: Weight Reduction Stage 1

Posted by Gruppe S On Thursday, April 14, 2011 0 comments
A light car is a quick car. Lightening up a car will give it better handling characteristics as well as faster acceleration. The first step in our Project Scion TC Time Attack car is to shed as much pounds as we can. we started off with taking out all sound deadening material.



Put on all joining metal portions, this material is used to make the car more quiet in the cabin reducing the natural creaking of the metal and dampening the outside noise by absorbing vibration.
After extensive removal, we cleaned out every last piece of material in order to maximize the amount of weight we are shaving.





Its like caulk and rubber combined in consistency and since our car is brand new, it was pretty easy to remove.












Having completed cleaning out the car, next we'll start to stitch weld the joining portions of the chassis to increase its rigidity for greater handling, but more on that real soon! Check out the blog in a couple days for more updates!

Gruppe-S builds 2011 Scion TC Time Attack Car

Posted by Gruppe S On Tuesday, April 12, 2011 0 comments
And so it begins.. Gruppe-S Engineering was awarded a 2011 Scion TC to build into a Street Class Time Attack monster. It is BONE STOCK but that will be changed shortly as we begin the development process on the car stripping it down to its bare bones and rebuilding it into greatness.


Equipped with the Stock Scion TC Powerplant, we plan to utilize forced induction in order to unlock the hidden potential within this Toyota 4 Cylinder.



Yeah we still got the floor mats in this bad boy, and yea

We requested a TC with a good sound system, hitting Apex's shouldnt have to be a quiet and dull process.

Moon Roof? Of course..




So who is the Driver of this car you ask? Lets just say a high profile celebrity in extreme spor.... well I think I've already said too much, I'll let you guys know soon!
