Titan Motorsports Invades Houston,TX for TX2K12

March 27th, 2012 Comments off

This past weekend our team loaded up our newly refreshed Copper super and headed to Texas for TX2K12. We’ve attended this meet since it’s inception and this year had the largest spectator attendance of any prior years. With a great showing of Supra’s, 2JZ swapped vehicles and a large amount of GTR’s in attendance this event has evolved from being a yearly Supra meet to a tuner and super car shootout. In addition the large number of Supra’s and GTR’s the Lamborghini Gallardo TT contingent was there with a strong presence. The dyno day crew did the unbelievable and managed to dyno over 80 cars on 2 dynos over the course of a day, with many breaking the 1,000hp barrier.

Drag Racing was held on Saturday and Sunday, with many records broken including the GTR drag racing record with an 8.63. The Titan Copper Supra seemed to be the talk of the drag days and with testing commencing it showed great promise. The whole community watched as Team Titan worked aggressively at making sure the car was able to make runs and continued to improve the new combination. When the first full 1/4 mile pass was made it yielded a 7.59 @ 186 with the doors literally flying off. While the crew worked to repair and service the car between rounds, a pair of replacement doors was borrowed from fellow competitor Ross Baird so the car would attempt another run. We want to thank Ross for his great sportsmanship and hope to return the favor in another fashion in the future! This year was a great event as the pictures below show, and we look forward to seeing even more people out at TX2K13 next year!

This weekend proved to be a busy weekend for our tuner Shane T. In addition to remotely tuning the E.Kanoo Racing Supras to another winning race weekend in Bahrain, he was also in Texas at the Texas Mile working with this wild Ford GT. This particular Ford GT featured a custom twin turbo setup and set a new standing mile record of 257.7mph with a half mile speed over 200! This is an incredible feat, and it you take a look at the video below, you can see the run looked almost effortless. Shane T is responsible for tuning our drag race projects as well as every Twin Turbo Gallardo we’ve built to date using Motec’s world class engine management system and accessories.
