FB Update: Step into our office…

Bulletproof office and hangar  with GT-R R35 demo

We’ve been crazy busy over here, juggling more projects than ever, bringing in some exciting new hires, all while moving into a shiny new office in sunny Hawthorne, CA!  We’re right on the runway of the Hawthorne Airport, so we get to watch all the private jets and helicopters take off from our window.

Turns out all those fumes draw some pretty cool neighbors too – Tesla, SpaceX (aerospace transportation), Gyron (aerial cameras), Filmotechnic (camera car systems), and numerous flight schools are all clustered within the same square mile around the airport.

Needless to say, we’re loving it here.  I’m excited to do a full tour of our place soon, but for now, here are a few quick snaps from our FB album.

Bulletproof office hangar R35 demo JUN Evo X

This photo was taken from our office’s hangar.  The Evo X on the right is secretly packing a full JUN crate motor, JUN one-off turbo kit, Brembo GT-R nickel-plated brakes and JRZ coilovers (see more in the FB album we created for his build).  This beast belongs to our longtime friend and customer Tenzin, who was one of the first to visit the new place.  We encourage everyone to come by and check it out, even if you don’t have a private jet for door-to-door transport!

FB Update: Custom Brembo brakes for R34 Time Attack

Posted by

custom Brembo brakes for R34 GT-R

We’ve been itching to see these… A very special brake setup for a R34 GT-R time attack project we’ve been working on with our client Drew.  We had Brembo custom build this setup which is not found in their catalog.  The fronts are 8 piston race calipers with titanium pistons and 380mm rotors.  Pretty special brakes!  It is nice to know that they’ll be put to good use!  That same car is getting an Amuse R1000 turbo back race exhaust too!

Undercover Virginia Police 2012 GT-R

Posted by

This video makes you wonder how in the world the police department in Virginia is able to spend 100k on a 2012 GT-R. What happened to budget shortfalls?!  I guess they figure this is a good investment since likely they’ll rack up 100k in speeding tickets issued in the first month.  All I know is that I’m damn sure not running when I see a GT-R cop car in the rear view.  That’s a race you’re sure to lose.

One Of My Favorite Pictures – Custom Carbon BBS and Brembo 6 Piston

Posted by

Carbon Fiber Refinished BBS with Custom Brembo 6 Piston

This is a close up of one of my favorite 370Z’s in Japan. There is just so much awesomeness in this picture that I wanted to feature it without the car (that Ab Flug kitted 370Z that I’ve featured here a few times now).

Custom Carbon Dry Japan Protec reinforcement on BBS wheels with custom refinished Brembo 6 piston caliper and matching rotor hats!

It is unfortunate that we rarely see cars with this level of amazingness packed into a few inches of photo space. It is not cheap to play at this level, but you could enter just this wheel and brake set into a car show and it should win best of show.

A PY50 Fuga Project In Japan

Posted by

Brembo PY50 Fuga Do Luck

I wanted to showcase a cool project that we were recently involved with as a supplier. Our friends at Do Luck in Japan prepared this PY50 Fuga (M35/45 for North America) for a client of theirs.

We were involved with the brake system which utilizes custom colored Brembo aftermarket brakes designed for a Nissan 370Z. The 370Z GT series aftermarket brakes fit the Fuga quite well!

Between the tasteful aero, a proper ride height, the classic BBS LM wheels and now these new Brembo 370mm 6 Piston front and 4 piston rear brakes this is easily one of my favorite modern VIP rides. I’m really glad that we could contribute to the project!
