Todays article is in relation to automotive performance wheels and the production of the wheels. We are cross-examining the quality differences between high production alloy wheels made form aluminum and a conventional steel wheel. Initially aftermarket wheels came into the automotive industry to improve one of two things, performance in terms of rotating mass or looks and or improve the actual appearance of the vehicle in which they are going onto. We are going cross examine and comparing both physical appearances as well as how a performance racing wheel stacks up to some of the other brands available on the market. Most companies manufacturer for performance alloy wheels that has been around since early 2014, they started out on the market producing 4 different wheels and has since expanded to carry around 8 different models. As with all aluminum alloy wheels the production stage can be done one of two way, the current method to produces rims is done through a cast setup not forged. Cast is a highly used method for the production of metal goods because it is low cost and produces a strong and reliable product that is both lightweight and cost affordable.

Novitec the well known automotive exotic tuner has put their expertise to the test with the release of a brand new platform to start modifying. The new vehicle in question is none other than the lamborghini aventador, originally released in 2009 the car was a sensation to modern day supercars. Sporting fighter jet styling and a high revving V12 motor paired with the legendary Lamborghini AWD system a person might question how you could make this vehicle better than the predecessor.
In the modern day car modifying scene we are seeing a lot of designers bring forward body kits and aftermarket support that bolts onto the existing vehicle. Extended flares, riveted on lip kits and such. If you need an example of what I am talking about head over to liberty walk japan and check out some of the pictures and videos of the cars they build. At the end of the day you walk away with a half million dollar car that has been hacked to pieces to accommodate all of the new pieces. Novitec does not play by these rules the new vehicle in question is every bit as clean as the OEM setup, each wide body panel was re-designed and re-crafted using carbon fibre and bolts into the existing OEM locations. The end result is you have a vehicle that is extremely clean and doesnt look like an after thought.
On top of all of the new additions added to the Novitec Aventador the design team was also able to shed 50 lbs out of the existing car. Engine enhancements include giving the V12 motor a performance intake that allows the motor to breathe. A flash of the engine ECU and the HP numbers increase to 785 hp.

In todays article we are going to be discussing the importance of selecting the correct tires for your racing purposes and applications. The most important aspect of automotive racing has to be the single word “traction” without it we can not move, we loose control, racing becomes a dangerous and un-eventful sport outside of the crazy world of drifting. Even drifting requires mass amounts of traction in order to propel the car in a sideways motion.
We have composed a list of a couple very prominent and important tire manufacturers and we wanted to compare reviews and information that we found online through various retailers like tire rack and Revwerks etc.
Initially we wanted to compare and write a review on one of our favorite tires, the Falken RT-615 this is a tire that has a vey aggressive tread pattern and on top of that it also sports a 180 tread wear which is the lowest level you can legally run for a lot of auto cross events as well as sporting solo one and solo 2 racing events.
We have attached a picture of the RT-615 below, this tire performs great under all conditions. Although one thing we did notice was after roughly 10 laps on the road course they start to become greasy, which is somewhat concerning for high speed turns coming off of a straight and into a sharp hairpin.
