KW Racing

FX Motorsports Acura NSX @ SEMA 2013 (11/11/2013):

IMG_5586With another year of SEMA complete there’s almost zero time to relax for many tuners taking part in the Superlap Battle x Global Time Attack event @ Buttonwillow Raceway this week. One of the most highly anticipated competitors is the FX Motorsports Development 1991 Acura NSX, a car that currently holds the Unlimited RWD lap record and 2012 championship title!

Running KW’s 3-way Competition Damper the FXMD NSX has been completely overhauled in 2013 with a huge focus turned towards the vehicle’s aerodynamics, weight distribution and heat management. That said, the new Borg Warner EFR 9180D turbocharger produces 760whp @ 20psi – more than enough to propel the 1200kg chassis!

GALLERY: KW Automotive @ SEMA 2013 (11/07/2013):

SEMA is a show that packs plenty of performance wherever you look. From drift cars to road racers and everything in between, SEMA covers just about all motorsport disciplines and we’re hugely proud to have KW suspension products on a wide range of cars across the show. Yesterday we showed you Ken Gushi’s new Scion FR-S drift car running our Competition 3-way damper. Take a look at some of the other impressive machines running KW products in the SEMA gallery below. We will be taking a in depth look at some of these stunning cars very soon.

SPOTLIGHT: Ken Gushi’s 2014 GReddy x Scion Racing FR-S (11/07/2013):

IMG_4385It’s not unusual to see a car built especially for SEMA, but truth be told many of these wild and bespoke rides rarely see any road use after hours. Safe to say that isn’t the case with Ken Gushi’s new GReddy x Scion Racing FR-S which is set to compete in Formula Drift very soon…

Now running a monster 3.0-litre 2JZ-GTE Supra engine Ken’s FR-S delivers an earth-shattering 750bhp/730 lb-ft to the rear wheels thanks to a wide range of GReddy upgrades. Grip definitely isn’t a problem here either, with 19in Gram Lights laying down Hankook 235/35/19 tyres up front and 275/35/19 at the rear.

High Speed Racing in the Desert at Shift S3ctor (Oct/07/2013):

Aston in Gulf ColorsThis weekend the third Shift S3ector Airstrip Attack event was held at the Municipal Airport in Coalinga California.  These events are becoming more and more popular as it gives the high horsepower street cars and chance to stretch their legs in a safe enviroment.  Many cars were on hand to put the pedal down and give the mile long airstrip turned track a go. 





Cars have horsepower numbers written on the windows and MPH displays at the end of the mile keep everyone informed about each run.  All in all it is a great way to see cars that you normally see tooling through affluent neighborhood actually doing what they were designed to do, GO FAST!



VarietyWith the sucess of this event, being even bigger than the last, I would expect that there will be a follow up, so next time check it out, but until then enjoy the photos from this round.
