Team GReddy Racing 86 at Formula D Long Beach

http://greddy.com/featured/50


The Long Beach round of the 2017 Formula Drift Championships, kicks off our 6th year in the series with driver Ken Gushi, but our first year officially part of the Toyota Racing family.  (previously Scion Racing / SR by Toyota)








The season starts off with the traditional pre-season media day on the Tuesday before the race weekend.  We use this opportunity to give a FDLB course preview thanks to our new Team GReddy Racing x Nexen Tire x Toyota Racing 86 sponsor Blackvue...


We also debut the first episode of our all new web series... Sliding Places.   The planned 10 episode Sliding Places web series will not only feature exciting drifting action from each Formula Drift Pro round, but it will also go in-depth and behind the scenes with pro drifter, Ken Gushi and the entire Team GReddy Racing crew as they travel the country.


With the shortest off season in FD history,  the Team still was able to implement many new upgrades and changes to the 2017 season.   Friday practice went well and Ken felt confident for Qualifying.   In Qualifying run one, Ken laid down a solid 86pt first run, but developed a transmission problem right at the finish of the run, denaying the team a chance to better the qualifying position of 10th.
  See the run here:  https://youtu.be/AY_YrAw_zkg?t=1h4m8s


 
The qualifying set up the 32 bracket of Ken Gushi 10th vs. Georgy Chivchyan 23rd  in his V8 powered S15.   Ken drove an excellent lead run and a close follow for the easy win. 
  See the runs here: https://youtu.be/j83hPndE6jE?t=11m16s


 After a busy half-time break with team's hometown fans, Ken was introduced to a sold out Formula Drift Long Beach crowd and gave the Toyota fans a little show along with Toyota Racing teammate, Fredric Aasbo in his new Corolla IM.

The competitive 16 bracket placed Ken up against reining 2016 Formula Drift champion, Chris Forsberg for another door to door battle.  Unfortunately, the judges saw things differently then the cheering FDLB crowd and declared the V8 370Z of Forsberg the winner, ending round one for the team.
  See the runs here: https://youtu.be/j83hPndE6jE?t=21m1s

All in all it was another good learning experience for the team as we prepare for round two in FDOrlando at the end of this month,  April 28-29.

Two New Supreme SP Options for the ND Mazda Miata

Miata Axle-back and Cat-back exhausts arrive this month!



The Supreme SP for the 4th generation ND Mazda MX-5 Miata was designed and engineered specifically to suit the USA spec 2.0l Skyactiv-G engine combination. Unique to this application is the availability of either the pre-resonated axle-back muffler system, for maximum sound control with enhanced flow. Or there is also a full cat-back system, that includes a dual resonated mid-pipe for even more performance and a sportier sound. The full system showed power increase throughout the RPM band, with maximum gains, of 13hp/8ft-lbs, as low as 3500rpm. Both options use the same unique rear section with dual 82mm GReddy exhaust tips. Like all GReddy Supreme SP systems the fully hand-welded 304 Stainless-Steel exhaust carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty

Both the Axle-back and Cat-back Supreme SP exhausts will begin to arrive by the end of March...

New Exhaust for Febuary 2017 - Evolution GT Z06 Corvette

  Arriving state-side late-Febuary 2017





The EVOlution GT, for the C6 Chevrolet Corvette, combines the best of GReddy’s 40 years of exhaust design expertise, in one unique system. Increased performance, refine exhaust note, and a substantial weight savings come through a creative layout with our distinctive dual EVO mufflers. Large 76mm (3”) mandrel-bent piping is configured with a superior “X-pipe." It is then linked to a set of our compact, but highly-efficient, straight-through, mufflers and twin center-exit, 115mm (4.5”) GReddy slash cut tips. In dyno tests, the system gains the Z06, 27.2whp / 34.7ft-lb of performance, while producing just an 8-10 decibel increase in sound, (at idle and our test RPM = ¾ redline, 5250). By eliminating the heavy OEM valve system and unnecessary tips, weight is reduced by 34% (-24.2lbs.) Fitment and installation is top notch and straight forward, with better-then OEM investment cast stainless-steel GReddy flanges. (There is no cutting or sloppy slip-on joints to figure out.) Like all GReddy EVOlution GT systems, they are all made from fully hand-welded, 304 stainless-steel and each exhaust carries a GReddy Limited Lifetime Warranty.
