æ Performance just returned from Auto Club Speedway Round 3 of Redline Time Attack. An intense lineup of competitors were in attendance for the weekend, as it was hosted at the nail biting, high speed Auto Club Speedway “Roval” in Fontana California.
Rich Taylor filled in for Paul Walker this weekend in the æ Performance Hankook E92 M3 and took top honors once again in Street RWD Class and also for the first time an Overall Class win, finally besting the AWD competitors that usually bring home the Street Class fast laps. Thanks to their newly installed OS Giken rear Differential, an OG Aero Systems front splitter and a new data acquisition system installed and operated by AIM Sports, æ were able to drop 3 seconds from last season breaking the previous track record (also set by Rich Taylor) with a time of 1:47.345.
Powering this E92 to its scorching lap times are the Gintani Supercharging System with Vortech V-2 T-Trim Supercharger pushing out 7.5psi of efficient boost pressure. Along with supporting modifications and tuning, this package is good enough for over 570 horsepower at the rear wheels.
Very special thanks goes out to all of æ’s sponsors for the 2011 season: Hankook Tires, Gintani, Ohlins, Swift Springs, Volk, OS Giken, Brembo & AIM Sports. More to come from the æ Performance Team as they prepare for the rest of the season.
