This past weekend we had the pleasure to compete in a Nasa Time Trial at one of the nations most popular tracks. There was a lot of stiff competition. In the TTU class there were fully race prepped Viper ACR’s, Race Corvettes, and of plenty of Porsche’s.. The near 100F temps and 50% humidity took it’s toll on the competitors but we manage to best out the competition with a 1:30 lap time 2 days in a row with our Forged Prepped GT-R.
We are working on a new look for the car, so bear with us. I wanted to thank our generous sponsors for their support:
That is right!
Forged Performance is working with HRE on a special sized 18inch wheel for competition and track use. We will be debuting them at the Pirelli Ultimate Track Car Challenge hosted by Grassroots Motorsports Magazine. We are proud to be associated with HRE, as they share many of the same corporate values as Forged Performance: Super-high quality, high level of customer support and service, and honesty in their business dealings. They get the job done, and they make things right.
With the help of HRE they were able to precisely measure vehicle tolerances to tailor fitments that meet our specific needs while taking special consideration for the brake clearance, suspension and tires. We will be using their Competition line for our GT-R. The wheel that suited us best was the Comp 90. This 3 piece Forged wheel is made with Titanium fasteners and aerospace grade 6061-T6 forged aluminum. Why use a 3 piece wheel? The wheels offer high strength & durability, fitment flexibility options, and replacement of parts if needed. Super high quality 3 piece wheels have been used in professional Motorsports circles for decades.
On our Forged Performance GT-R the sizes we decided to go with are 18×10.5 Front, 18×12 Rear with the proper offsets. This will allow us to run our wheels without any spacers. With this specific wheel package it allows us to run a much more aggressive tire sizing for competition usage without protruding from the fenders in an unsafe manner. Each set will be custom tailored for our clients intended usage, tire size, and desired finish, with a leadtime of just 3-4 weeks. As an authorized HRE Dealer we are proud to represent them at the UTCC event. We are looking forward to the stiff competition that lies ahead at Virginia International Raceway.
