Titan Motorsports Open House 2012

March 20th, 2012 Comments off

March 10th marked our annual open house event here at Titan Motorsports. This now annual event allows our great customers and fans an opportunity to see whats new at Titan Motorsports, all while raising money for charity. This years event was a huge success with a total of 52 car show contestants an an energetic crowd throughout the day. We were able to raise $5,500 for Just in Queso Foundation, doubling the donation we were able to make last year.

We want to thank all the great supporters and sponsors that helped make our 2012 open house a great success :

Mr Gasket, Manley, NGK, Bosch, Performance Poly, Simply Clean, Highway Star Garage, Koyo, Hawk, Tijuana flats, Florida Trophy, Stages Plus. We’d also like to thank the models who helped promote throughout the day Ednyr Marie, Carolina Spidel, Beatriz, Jessica Le, Bridget Tran, Rachel Loka.

A very special thanks goes out to our very own Nikki Contenti who spent countless hours planning and making sure the event was as successful as possible. We look forward to next years event and raising even more money for such a great cause.

The Working Workshop

June 10th, 2011 Comments off

So often we share with you pictures of the parts and vehicles that enter and leave our shop. What isn’t seen as often are the tools and the production that goes on in the shop to produce those high end products.

Here we have a turbo manifold for a 2JZ-GTE. This particular manifold is similar to the all-out race manifolds, also produced in-house, that we use in our race program.

Above we have a few go-fast-goodies anxiously awaiting their new home.

Links Laying Low. These will be going on a Drag Supra Project we are working on.

Getting Jiggy With It! Here you see some of the jigs that help us reproduce custom parts, or run a production for an off the shelf part number.

An example of which would be our GT-R roll bars. Here we have a neat little army ready to march out to get powder coated.

Just hanging out, holding it down…

I think the Countach wants to race?!?! The staggered fitment on the welding cart may prove to be the difference maker though…

Chill’n like a villain, these intercoolers are awaiting the next step in the production process.

At Titan Motorsports we do a ton of fuel system upgrades given the nature of our turbocharged roots. “Fitting” that we have this stuff just laying around.

No, this isn’t Nero’s closet. It’s what we use to keep the cars on the dyno. Making sure the cars we test are tested safely is a crucial part of what we do.

Environmental safety is important too. With all the cars that come in and leave, it is important for us to live up to our environmental responsibilities as well.

Come by and check out the shop. There is always something of interest rolling in, rolling out, or being created. We hope you’ll agree.

Titan Motorsports New Location Update 2

May 14th, 2009 1 comment

Took a few moments to head to the shop today and spec a few more last minute details. There was quite a bit of progress overall and things are looking to be on track.

This picture was taken from the second floor where we have a double door access allowing heavy equipment and furniture to be easily moved using a forklift. This access will be locked from the outside to prevent anyone from falling from the sky (although I would love to put a BLOB in like the Fantasy Factory, but don’t think management would approve).

We recently got the warehouse side of the floors coated, I spent quite a bit of time making sure the best products where used to ensure that these floors would last. The contractor we hired came out and shot-peened the entire floor, before applying a wet epoxy coat that was later followed up by a polyurethane floor. If you look at the picture above you can see the raw concrete to the left, the raw concrete after being shot-peened, and finally the right is the finished flooring. The shop side will be coated next week after the pallet racking and warehouse shelves are setup and the floor on that side can be cleared.

Now that the floor has a fresh coating to protect the concrete, our shelving systems have begun being installed. The warehouse side will feature both shelving as pictured, and pallet racking for larger shipments, secured behind a safety fence. With more warehouse space we will now be able to expand our current product lines stocked and inventory levels to help better serve our customers.

As a result of ADA guidelines, we had to add an elevator for 2nd floor access for those with disabilities that would prevent them from using the stairs.

Our second floor is where our support staff and book keeping will be located, at this point only the floor and ceiling tiles remain for completion.
