Nero’s E92 M3 recieves first set of HRE R40 Motorsports Wheels

October 12th, 2010 Comments off

HRE recently introduced its 18″ Forged R40 Motorsport wheel to the public, and we wanted to make sure we were the first to get a set. HRE unleashes a direct descendant of the wheel that won the 2010 Grand-Am GS Championship, now lighter, stronger and better ever and ready for competition. What better car to show off this great new wheel than Nero’s personal E92 M3 street car, which sees the race track from time to time for Drivers Education events.

HRE Performance Wheels has unveiled a NEW forged one-piece motorsport wheel for 2011, the R40 Monoblok™ for dedicated track and the highest performance street cars. This mesh-style, 6061-T6 aerospace grade aluminum wheel is a direct descendant of the custom-built model used by Fall-Line Motorsports to WIN the 2010 Grand-Am GS Championship in BMW M3 race cars, but now it’s available in a brand new mesh style for a wide range of applications and lighter than ever (17.5 lbs and up).

HRE R40 wheels are precision engineered to stringent German TÜV specifications in HRE’s TÜV-approved manufacturing facility for ultra light weight, high strength and unsurpassed quality. Available finishes include Satin Black, Satin Silver, Brushed with Clearcoat and more. The R40 is available in 18” diameter and widths ranging from 8.5” – 12” in Multi-lug and Center Lock versions. HRE engineers know the race can be won in the pits, so be sure to note the rattle-gun friendly open dish shape for fast wheel changes!

All HRE wheels are engineered to minimize unsprung mass and rotational inertia for optimal acceleration, handling and braking performance. Each wheel is built-to-order at HRE’s 60,000 square foot manufacturing facility for the ultimate performance solution and custom-tailored wheel buying experience. We carry the entire line of HRE Performance wheels here at Titan Motorsports, both for street and track. Call us today for the best pricing and fitment options for your vehicle.

Festivals of Speed Miami 2009

November 18th, 2009 Comments off

Festivals of Speed held it’s first event this weekend in Miami, FL. We had the pleasure of displaying at their Orlando show last month, and were extended the same opportunity for their Miami show. The event benefited the Michael Fux Injured Officers Assistant Fund, a charity devoted to helping officers who have endured nearly fatal, debilitating injuries who are unable to work for an extended period of time. Michael Fux also displayed his wonderful collection of modern exotics, many of which have been custom ordered in unique color combinations.

The event was kicked off on Saturday with a Yacht hop at the Epic Hotel and Marina in downtown Miami. Guests were treated to cocktails and decadent deserts while exploring a handful of luxury yachts tied up next to a courtyard filled with exotic cars and motorcycles. This yacht hop kickoff was followed by a rooftop reception at the Viceroy Hotel, which features one of the largest infinity pools in Florida which seemed to flow off the edge of the 15th story of the building. The views from the pool deck were breathtaking and allowed guests an opportunity to meet and interact with other attendees while in an intimate setting.

Sundays marked the finale of the weekend with a great display of exotic cars in Miami’s beautiful Bay Front Park. The downtown location featured the Miami skyline as a backdrop in one direction, and the port of Miami in the other, providing for some great photo opportunities. In attendance were 3 Bugatti Veyrons (including a GrandSport), 2 Lamborghini LP670-4 SV’s, A Ferrari Enzo and FXX edition, as well as countless other priceless exotic cars, customs and classics.

UGR Viper TT gets Stoptech Big Brakes

August 13th, 2009 Comments off

Our good friend Grant brought his 2000 Viper GTS to our shop for the next round of upgrades to an already impressive vehicle. This isn’t your average Viper, a quick look at the front fender reveals the words “Twin Turbo” right below the emblem. This car had previously been built in Charlotte,NC by world renowned Underground Racing and now features over 1,300whp. The biggest problem behind making such extreme power other than an addiction to the smell of C16, is the need to slow down.

We installed a Stoptech ” Front Big Brake kit which fits nicely behind the 18″ HRE’s on the car, this package will also work with the factory 18″ wheel as well. Stoptech Big Brake kits come complete with their world renowned ST 40 4-piston calipers, 355x32mm lightweight 2-piece floating rotors (in slotted or drilled), Street performance brake pads, and all hardware necessary to adapt them to your vehicle.. Grant opted for the Black calipers, however Stoptech also offers their kits in Silver, Yellow, and Blue. Titan Motorsports can also have the calipers custom painted to match your vehicle for an additional charge (this upgrade is not available directly through Soptech). We finished the upgrade off with Motul RBF600 high temperature fluid, and made sure the proper brake bedding procedures where completed to ensure no pad deposits were left on the rotors..

In addition to being one of Florida largest Soptech dealers, we carry a full selection of brake performance parts from street pads,rotors,stainless lines, as well as Castrol SRF and Motul fluids.
