Shift-S3ctor and Revvolution, in conjunction with the Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC), are proud to announce the first event of its kind, the Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack, at the Colorado Springs Airport June 27th and 28th, 2014 as part of Pikes Peak Speedweek. Check out the official press release.
And we’re back! Though Mother Nature didn’t cooperate for TX2K14, it didn’t dampen our spirits because we knew back home some good things were happening with Project BRZ. We’re back into the mix with our weekly documentary of the progress. To bring you up to speed, the engine is off to the machine shop where they can work their magic and we’re waiting on the remainder of the build’s components to arrive, including the widebody parts that we just finished up sourcing.
In this installment we crack open the box of our new Air Lift Performance Digital Combo Kit suspension and let you know what we found, compare and contrast to the stock suspension, and provide an initial assessment.
Every week this build gets more and more interesting as we dive deeper into the inner workings of the BRZ. For this installment, we peel back the layers of the engine to understand what we have to work with, and where it can be improved in relation to our initial build objectives. As with any good build, you define an objective based on what you have to work with. In order to properly understand what we had to work with first hand, it was necessary that we dive into the platform’s heart. This time, we turned to SCR Performance because of their intimate knowledge of Subaru drivetrains, as well as their reputation as top engine builders. We knew they would give an accurate assessment of what areas we’d need to address as the build progresses.
Revvolution and Elite Auto Salon (EAS) are excited to announce our second annual Automotive Lifestyle Event for 2014. The car event highlights Colorado’s car culture by bringing together automotive businesses and organizations from around the state and surrounding areas. This year’s event, being held at the same venue as last year, Pikes Peak International Raceway in Fountain, Colorado, promises to be bigger, better, and harder hitting.. To ensure not to conflict with one of our other primary events, the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, and to steer clear of the daily June rain showers, this year’s event will be held on May 18th, 2014.
Last week, we introduced the Revvolution.com Project BRZ, and outlined the partners involved and our overall build objectives. As you will recall, the goal for the Revvolution Project BRZ is a progressive performance build that is oriented toward high-performance street driving and moderate track applications. This week we will dive into the project with hands-on feedback as we outline our first objective: strengthening the chassis.
