FB Update: Customer’s Voltex Evo 9

customer car: Voltex Evo 9

With all of the GT-R builds that we feature, many forget that we’re actually Voltex’s oldest direct distributor in the US.  Here’s a nice CT9A Evo build we were involved with.  The car was conceptualized and built flawlessly by our friends in Puerto Rico – Alejandro and the guys at STPR.

Voltex’s New Type XIV GT Wing by Ben Schaffer

Voltex Type XIV GT Wing, Dry Wood AP1 S2000

Voltex as you should know is always innovating with their aerodynamic designs. Writing the next chapter of their continuous evolution is this upcoming Type XIV GT Wing. The Real JDM blog has the worldwide exclusive on it! Incorporating their racing prototype know how with wood as a material for front diffuser design, Voltex has produced this unique Type XIV GT wing out of their proprietary Dry Wood construction. Dry Wood is a unique high strength and light weight wood created from chopping down only the most ancient Japanese trees, then grinding the valuable wood into small grains, after which the grains are saturated in high-end Japanese Sake and finally wind formed into a final shape using an industrial strength wind tunnel.

What makes this wing even more impressive however is that despite its highly aerodynamic design, it is also extremely versatile. The wing utilizes custom wing stays which have a dual use as a bicycle rack for those who spend all of their gas money on this incredibly innovative wing.

And if you believe all of this, either you are extremely gullible or you have forgotten what day it is today. Happy April Fools!

PS – This is actually real, my friend Konrad and I made this wing as a joke about 8 years ago for his Chevy Lumina and eventually I convinced him to put it on his S2000 to take a picture! He always had a bike rack and I used to joke that we could make a hilarious wing out of it. A night shopping at Home Depot, some messing around with saws and this is the hilarious result we came up with. Unfortunately we didnt get photos of the version we made after wrapping it with supermarket aluminum foil….Ah…the randoms times we had back when we were young, stupid and had time to waste! Good times…

Voltex S2000 Debut by Stanley Ku

voltex_s2_debut_01

Evasive Motorsports has received it’s first shipment of the newly developed Voltex aero kit for the Honda S2000. I don’t want to say too much on here since you can read all about it and view more pictures on Evasive’s own blog.

I can’t wait until I see the kit on an S2000. Coming from Voltex, there is no doubt that it will be both aggressive and functional. One thing that I do want to discuss is the front bumper. It seems like multi-piece bumpers are becoming more common as we saw from Ben’s recent posts about the Varis and Runduce collaboration for the EVO and STi.

The Voltex front bumper is a 3-piece design with the core bumper, a lip, and a splitter. I think it is a great design because it allows more greater adaptability. The splitter can be easily removed and mounted when the car is off or on track duty. The lip can be replaced if there was any sort of damage done to it. Accidents are accidents and it is much cheaper to replace a lip than a whole bumper, especially coming from Voltex. I would like to see Voltex develop other lip and splitter combinations for different levels of performance. Some might want a full hardcore track setup with canards while others just want someone more subtle for the street and occasional track outings. With the multi-piece design, switching between different setups will be a breeze.

Another thing worth mentioning, Evasive should be careful in their sales of this kit. The reason why I am saying this is because I would hate to see a replica kit pop up on the market. It doesn’t take much to replicate and if such a thing were to occur, it would definitely be unfair (a huge understatement) for Evasive Motorsports and Voltex.

Mysterious Cat by Matt Rus

It seems that Voltex has just introduced a new method for testing their wings. We’ve been able to get our hands on a spy image of their new procedure. The tester’s feelings about this wing are written all over his face. It’s ready to produce some wicked downforce!
