New GReddy products introduced at the SEMA Show

In our previous post, we showed some of the project cars we worked on for the SEMA Show. (Lexus Tuned X GReddy RC and GReddy X Garrett GT-R)

Now let's show you what was in our booth. For the 2014 SEMA Show, GReddy Performance Products introduced:

  • Lifetime Warranty for Exhaust
  • GReddy GTX-R Turbo Kits
  • GReddy DIY Fabrications Components
  • New Rocket Bunny Kits

Staff: Takeshi, Andrew, Aaron, Kenji, Quincy




The biggest News is our GReddy Limited Lifetime Warranty that is now included with all application specific Supreme SP, Revolution RS and new Evolution models. 
(Sneak Peek at the new 76mm Evolution Ver2 Exhaust for the FR-S / BRZ)


Other big news that we mentioned earlier in the year was GReddy's new partnership with Turbo By Garrett.  By adding Garrett GTX-R turbos to our Turbo Kit line-ups, we are able to maintain top quality performance, with more power range options.  Our first two GReddy GTX-R Turbo kits will be updates to our R35 GT-R Twin Turbo Upgrade and our FR-S/BRZ Turner Turbo Kits...


Other big news is our new lines of GReddy DYI Fabrications Materials.  These are the same high quality raw materials we use in constructing our application specific kits.  
Soon we will offer a complete line of Stainless-Steel materials for fabricating custom exhausts.  Including similar high Quality Supreme SP and Revolution RS universal mufflers/tip combos, U and J bends, flanges, hangers and gaskets. 
And in the cooling department, we will have large high-quality tube and fin Intercoolers and Oil Coolers, along with supporting items like Aluminum bends, piping and elbows, couplings, fittings and thermo-block adapters.


And #GarageFRS explored our new products for the FR-S/BRZ.  Air Intake Snorkel, 2.1L Stroker FA20 engine parts, new 76mm Evolution exhausts and GTX-R Tuner Turbo Kit...

And of course since GReddy Performance Products is the Authorized Distributor of Rocket Bunny, we got to debut some new Aero Kits (NSX, RC F, RC Fsport, S15) as well as the limited edition Takata X Rocket Bunny seats...

Formula D Rd.7 - Irwindale Finale

  • GReddy Coverage from the last round of the 2014 Formula Drift Pro Championship Season.
In a very competitive 2014 Formula Drift Pro Championship, GReddy driver, Ken Gushi finishes the year ranking 13th out of 47 drivers.  The GReddy Performance x Hankook Tire x Scion Racing FR-S Team is proud to have been associated in two Championships this season, with Scion winning the Car/Engine Manufacturer's Cup and Hankook winning the Tire Manufacturer's Cup.  We are very thankful for the support of our fans, fellow teams and our technical partners like: 


Takata | Ray's  | KW Suspension | Rocket Bunny | Garrett | Supertech | TRUST | WPCIgnition Projects | OS Giken | SPL Parts | FMT | Bluemoon

 
The Irwindale Speedway (also known as the "House of Drift") is a local track for Ken and the Team.  And with a full capacity of 15,000 plus fans (many of which are rooting for Ken, GReddy and Scion) it's always an event to look forward to. 

The week started of well with good testing sessions, in preparation for round 7, but just before qualifying, the team discovered a possible reliability issue, but with no time for a fix, Ken had to go out and qualify.  And that he did, scoring two solid runs with the car still running well.  The 76 and 77point scores qualified him in the 12th spot for the FDIRW tandem battles.  As a preventive measure the Team worked all night Friday to have the car at 100% for Saturday's main event.

Up first was a rematch from round 6 FDTX, against Joon Meng's LS S13.  Ken ran a solid lead run and had the advantage.  Unfortunately Meng's car had a mechanical issue and could not follow up the second run, moving Ken in 16 bracket against his good friend Robbie Nishida in is 2JZ Lexus SC.  Ken was running a skillful chase run with good proximity against Nishida's fast SC, when bad luck hit our team, with power steering issue, forcing an end to the season.

All in all, the 2014 Formula Drift season was a solid result in the teams reliability and engine performance.  The team also learned a lot in the aspects of suspension set-ups for the high performance Hankook tires.  As we speak we are working on making the GReddy Performance x Hankook Tire x Scion Racing FR-S even better for the 2015 Formula Drift Pro Championships!

 Congratulations again to our Scion Racing and Hankook Tires teammates, Papakdakis Racing and Fredric Aasbo on a nail-bitingly close championship season.
