E92 BMW M3 TAKES ON A LOT OF RUBBER

Posted by Gruppe S On Monday, May 07, 2012 0 comments

 The Bigger Your Wheels = The Bigger Your __(insert noun)___


We didn’t realize it, but the BMW M3 E92 can take a lot of tire. We just installed a set of WEDS SA-55m matte gun metal 19x9.5 +24 and 10.5 +24s in the rear with some Hakook V12 K110s.



The amount of tire the car can handle was just extraordinary.


275/30R19 and 305/30R19s


Yeah, I know right?

Who would have thought we could fit that much tire in a sport coupe?
You BMW M3 guys are lucky. Maybe that is why they are the ultimate driving machine.

Prius ECO Wheels by WEDS Wheels

Posted by Gruppe S On Saturday, May 05, 2012 0 comments
I know everyone, the Prius wheel doesn't excite you, but I am doing it anyways. So some of you might own a race car and also commute in a Prius, well WEDS wheels, one of our sponsors wanted us to promote their ECO line of wheels for Hybrids. Their strategy is to build a +1 wheel size that beats the OEM in weight and appearance, so you can go bigger and not lose any mileage to weight gain. BTW you gotta be very specific about purchasing low rolling resistance tires.

So this is their take on it.

The Prius looks so much better with wheels and nice lowering. Just because the car is slow doesn't mean you can't make it look good. Laugh now, what if gas was $15.00 a gallon?

Posted by Gruppe S On Thursday, April 26, 2012 0 comments
Gruppe-S has been a long time distributor of the finest track gear, unfortunately we have kept it a secret. Well, we are letting the cat of the bag. Outfit yourself with the finest quality race wear.

Alpinestars suits have been a Gruppe-S favorite! Used by Formula 1, Nascar, Indy, Rally, and even Formula D. The suit fitment is incredible, lightweight, and durable while maintaining the freshest designs.


Check out the GP Tech suit with the Camo, one of my all time favorites!
For you ladies, the Stella GP Pro Suit, cut for a woman and still maintaining those sexy curves!!
The shoes, so many varieties, so many colors, everything to match you suit and your personal style. Who makes shoes like this? We carry the complete lineup from them, from gloves to underwear and even their awesome Karting products.

And to protect the most important part of your body, your brain! Gruppe-S has been selling, distributing and using on our race car drivers, the HJC Helmets. They are priced right, have a bunch of cool designs and even offer a carbon fiber helmet for less than $900.

Gruppe-S goes racing with Michele Abbate and the Scion tC

Posted by Gruppe S On Wednesday, April 25, 2012 0 comments
Ok people, I know you have been waiting a long time for updates, especially the Scion life forum. Thanks for your patience and love over the past couple of months.

So we had Bucky Lasek test the car and set it up, but he had schedule conflict and decided to try his hand at Rally, I guess it makes sense, that way he can get into Xgames rally, right?

So fortunate as we are, we found Michele Abbate, who has been driving Scions for quite some time and had great success with them. The car is ready to go, but needs some more tweaks to make sure we are competitive enough. Here was the plan, take the car out to the MOTO IQ Tuner car challenge, go wheel to wheel in the Tuner under class and let Michele battle it out. The car hasn't had much experience in this field, but we were confident that with her driving skills a bit of good luck and some proper chassis set up, we would be reasonably successful.

So the car is set up and ready to go, freshly rebuilt KW 3-way race coilovers and alignment and some Hankook RS-3 tires, but not realizing it wouldn't be competitive enough this weekend. The Hankook street tires were the original tires on our setup, so we needed a baseline number to truly see how much difference the tires were going to make and how close were we going to get with the street tires vs our competitors using racing DOT slicks. Overall Michele raced a good race, because we had shock failure on the first day due to some bad luck and she kept the car together and raced with only 3 operating shocks. I was amazed, but she was totally in control and kept the tC together, a true professional. Check out the front left shock, that's absolutely no dampening in the front left shock.

We were battling a world challenge TSX on DOT slicks and we were about 6 seconds behind the winner. We ended up swapping out to some lower model shocks temporarily and she took a couple seconds off with a best weekend lap of 2:049 which was very impressive.
So of course we aren't done, tC is the heaviest of the all the competitors there, so we plan on putting her on an extensive diet program, tuning the engine for more low end power, fixing the KW 3 ways and getting the magical Hankook Z214 DOT slicks on there. I think after all those changes, she should be ready to battle with the rest of the pack. The factory tC chassis is amazing and ready to do battle right out the box. Stay tuned for more updates. -EK

18 inch Rally tires, so rare and we have them!

Posted by Gruppe S On Thursday, March 08, 2012 0 comments
pe-S has received a small shipment of Hankook Rally tires designed for Tarmac use and the best part, they are only available in 18inch sizes. This is pretty ideal for a lot of you cars with stock 18 wheels.

KW for the S2000, custom made for S2Ki

Posted by Gruppe S On Wednesday, March 07, 2012 0 comments
Gruppe-S is collabing with KW to bring the S2000 community the nicest street coilover for the S2000 enthusiasts.

We haven't officially launched it, but we are super close. We are trying to target the enthusiasts willing to spend a little more than the KW V3 and still keep it lower than the KW Clubsports. It is ideal for any S2000 customer seeking a more aggressive street set up than the V3 and someone tracking it more often.

The dampers will have the 2 way rebound and compression adjustments, use a stiffer valving and spring rates to accommodate the enthusiast while maintaining the buttery smooth ride always associated with KWs. The suspension will also be designed for the S2000 guy that wants to run a square tire setup, like the Hankook RS-3 or DOT track compound. Stay Tuned, we will have all the information released very soon.



This is what we were thinking, but will not include the top mounts due to cost. This should be a great alternative for those looking for a dual purpose coilover.

Gruppe-S bringing you innovative products and ideas.
