Historic track records

The “track records” page is a little crowded with times and tracks that are 10 years old. So I’m moving all the places that aren’t raced at anymore here to make the main page shorter.

Tokico Shock Clearance Sale

We usually don’t do much of this, but we do have another site that sells parts called Function Auto and part of the plan is to use this website to help out the business. One of our distributors is clearing out their stock of Tokico shocks and struts and we figured a blog post was easier than making a whole bunch of new parts and categories. So anyway, after going through all their stock we came up with a price list.

Tokico basically makes three different performance shocks- the HP “blue,” the Illumina, and the D-Spec/ HTS. The Illumina, D-spec, and HTS all have an adjustment knob, but the Illumina only has 5 clicks and a narrower range. The D-spec and HTS are basically the same shock, and offer more adjustment than the illumina with 8-clicks, and can handle slightly more spring rates.

If you’re interested in ordering a set, there are two ways to do that. The first is to send an email to Peter at functionauto.com. Mention your car and which parts you’d like, and we’ll send an invoice that allows you to pay with paypal or just a credit card. Or if you want to skip the back and forth, you can just send money directly by using this link: paypal.me/hellafunctional. Be sure to mention the car make/model/year and shipping address. Then the shocks will ship the next business day (or possibly even the same day).

Here’s what we’ve got, these are complete sets of 4 shocks/struts, with no additional cost for fees or shipping in the lower 48:

There are also some front/rear pairs and truck shocks that we’ll list later. And it should also be noted that there are no returns or refunds on this stuff. If you are not sure if something will fit, ask us first. We can also track down stuff like springs, top mounts, adjustable suspension links, swaybars, bushings, etc, if you’re looking for things to compliment a set of fancy new adjustable shocks.

 

This week in videos

Well I certainly have been lazy about getting new posts up on here. I suppose that happens when you start a business to try to make money. Anyhow, it’s spring and that means more motorsports. In the last few weeks we have had Global Time Attack’s season opener and Buttonwillow, some NASA race weekends, Formula D, and the LBGP. Formula D means my favorite drifting-related-web-video-series, Behind the Smoke, is back at it again. Ok that might actually be the only drifting related web video series but anyway here is the newest episode:

Up next is a short video from Ryan Upham’s NASA season debut:

Unfortunately this year has not been great for Ryan and after a long delay in getting suspension parts he suffered a catastrophic engine failure at the event. If anyone has an EVO shortblock sitting around I’m sure he would be interested.

Speaking of engine failures, Christian Rado had a pretty good one last weekend in the FWing Scion 2.0 and caught it on video:

Results from the event are up on Global Time Attack’s website here:
http://www.globaltimeattack.com/2012-rd-1-buttonwillow-raceway-park-apr-21-22-2012/

From what I hear it was incredibly hot out and that combined with the first event of the season where teams have many untested and incomplete changes meant neither GST Motorsports or FXMD were able to come close to the track record or their previous best times. GST is back to their all black color scheme, and has a new rear-mount radiator setup:

Despite the conditions, Berk Technology was able to set new Street and Limited RWD records in their 135i thanks to some new Aero parts, the new Hankook Ventus TD, and Carl Rydquist:

Sportcar Motion has a ton of great pictures of the event on their facebook page so I suggest heading over there to check them out.

NASIOC’s Top Scoob – race car edition

Top Scoob is a monthly contest put on by the member’s car gallery section of the NASIOC Subaru forums. Normally I don’t pay it too much attention because that particular section has a lot of people who are more into looks than performance, to put things nicely. This month is a bit of an exception because it’s for race cars only, with a mix of privately owned and shop cars from all over the world. If you’re a member, I’d suggest heading over there to vote for your favorite Subaru race car. Here’s a breakdown of the entrants:
