Supercharge that Mo!

February 4th, 2011 Comments off

This Mopar is definitely flexing now. After coming in for a Kenne Bell Supercharger, this blacked-out beast is now pumping out 520 WHP & 470 TQ…..and it sounds as mean as it looks!

Rolling Hard Down South

November 18th, 2010 Comments off

As many of you know, last weekend was the Miami Festival of Speed. One of the cars we drove down there was Nero’s M3.

The car really fit right in with the Miami skyline.

It even looks great “Right near the beach…..”


The M3 is a great performer, as well as a great highway cruiser. We look forward to some more road trips, hopefully ones that land us at the track.

New Mustang Gets Weld Wheels and KW Suspension

October 19th, 2010 Comments off

After installing the Stoptech brakes on Bottle’s 2011 Mustang, the next step was getting the suspension dialed in.

For this, we chose to go with the KW Clubsport coilovers. KW Clubsports were developed for those who demand a better handling car when participating in track day events, but also require a setup that can be used every day.

The KW Clubsports are height adjustable and feature independent compression and rebound settings.

By using the optional adjustable top mounts, the suspension geometry can be adjusted to the requirements of tires and the intended use.

The Wheels are the all new Weld Racing RT-S 18×9.5 (Front) and 18×10 (Rear) wrapped in Falken Azenis RT615’s.

Stay tuned, performance goodies coming soon…

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.

2011 Mustang 5.0 Stoptech Brake Install

October 5th, 2010 Comments off

Check out our new project Mustang. We are planning on doing some minor modifications (to start) which include bigger brakes, sway bar, coilovers, exhaust, and wheel/tires package. Here is a few shots of the brake install.

For this we choose to go with Stoptech brakes. We use Stoptech for many of our project and customer cars, and they have provided great quality and performance.

The first thing we noticed is that the stock wheels would not clear the larger brakes. To fix this issue, we installed 5mm spacers, which helped the wheels clear the calipers.

Once the brakes were installed, we opted to use a BMR rear sway bar relocation kit to allow us to run 15” rims with drag radials. This kit flips the sway bar to the front for clearance. The factory sway still didn’t fit even with this, so we ended up using a smaller BMR sway bar for the additional clearance we needed.

Wheels, tires, and suspension coming soon, stay tuned.

M3 Stoptech Test Day

August 24th, 2010 Comments off

Earlier this week we made the trip out to the beautiful Ocala Gran Prix Race Way (OGP) to link up with Grassroots Magazine to do a little before and after testing of our E92 M3, now equipped with the Stoptech Trophy Sport big brake system.

The Bimmer wasn’t the only thing going around the track that afternoon however. GRM was set to do a new vs. old comparison, as they brought a brand new Honda CR-Z out to see how it would compare to Honda’s original sport compact, the CR-X.

A little cart action while we waited to get on the track…

The battle begins, as the M3 looks on with anticipation.

Here come the CR-Hondas out of the final turn and up the strait.

GRM photographer J.G. Pasterjak gets some up-close action of the dual.

Just about to roll out…

Here the M3 rounds the final corner, while the GRM staff try and push the Stoptech Trophy Sports to the limit.

This concluded our day of brake testing. Be on the lookout in upcoming issues of Grassroots Magazine for both the CR-V vs. CR-X test, as well as our Titan M3 Stoptech comparison.
