BMW e46 M3 on Enkei NT03+M Racing Series Wheels

We worked with Alex from European Car Magazine on their 600 whp BMW e46 M3 a few months back. This M3 is running on an Enkei NT03+M 18×10 +25 square set up – looks awesome! The car has been featured in the magazine a couple of times and Alex sent over a few photos for us to share. – Alex Specs 18×10 +25 Enkei NT03+M Racing Series Wheels Falken RT615-k 275/35/18 all around Rolled fenders all around 10mm spacer out back, no spacer up front -3.5* camber up front Performance specs if you wanted: 600whp turbo setup KW clubsports Performance Friction BBK Recaro’s Bunch of others, but that’s the main stuff.

WMD Project: Respect The Roadster – Wheels and Tires (Enkei RPF1)

WMD Project: Respect The Roadster – Wheels and Tires (Enkei RPF1)

WMD adds Enkei RPF1’s and Toyo R888 tires to their project Miata. This is an ideal set up for a daily/track car. Wheels and tires are usually the first upgrade or modification people do when modifying their cars. It was definitely at the top of our list as the right combination can dramatically change the look of the car and how it handles. We were looking for a light weight wheel and a meaty, grippy tire combo for our Miata. We found both with this combo: 14×7 +19 offset Gold Enkei RPF1 Racing Series Wheel and Toyo’s R888 205/55r14 meaty Proxes tires. The Miata previously had 15×7′s with 205/50/15 tires so we wanted a tire that would end up close to the overall diameter of the 15″ set up. The 55′s worked well and were only about an eighth of an inch smaller than the 15″ set up – though you can hardly see the difference. We headed over to Texas Track Works… Read...

WMD Project: Respect The Roadster – Overview (Enkei RPF1)

WMD’s new project Miata will run 14×7 +19 RPF1 Racing Series Wheels. Check out the plans for this project >> Welcome to our first WMD project car post. The “Respect The Roadster” project will be broken down into multiple install post. This being the first post, we will give you an overview of what’s to come, and some background on why we chose to go with the Miata platform. Also, we’re not experts on the Miata platform so we’d love to hear from you. Share your opinions and/or experience with Miatas in the comment section! So let’s get going. Being part of both the Enkei team and WMD has given me the opportunity to travel to many motorsports events, conventions, and the like. I have been surrounded by car people for the past 5 years and have heard multiple people in the industry rant and rave about how the Miata as an amazing track car platform. How the Miata is a great car to track and daily drive, reliable, and has plenty of aftermarket support. In fact, my first ever business trip with Enkei included a stop at Good-win racing who specializes in Miata aftermarket parts. I can’t lie, at first I wasn’t too fond of the idea of purchasing one for our first project car, until I drove one. I drove a stock Miata and was really impressed with it’s handling and decent amount of power. But most importantly, it was just fun to drive. I attended a SCCA Autocross event at Texas Motor Speedway a week back were about half the drivers were in Miatas. I spoke...

The Kern’s Pikes Peak Evo IX on Enkei RPF1

The Kern’s Pikes Peak Evo IX on Enkei RPF1

With Pikes Peak International Hill Climb around the corner,we felt it was a good time to show Kern’s Pikes Peak EVO IX featured earlier this year on MotoIq. Kern’s EVO uses 18×10.5 RPF1 Racing Series wheels. The Kerns are no ordinary team and this is no ordinary Evo. It all started innocently enough with David dodging cones in a parking lot. He then started getting sideways in dirt at rally-x events. The joys of playing in the dirt were too strong to resist and he started to get serious about racing. Perhaps the biggest coup was convincing his wife to go play in the dirt too. Follow along to see what it takes to be successful at Pikes Peak. Here is the story as David Kern tells it: “I got my start racing back in 2001 sliding around on a frozen lake near Woodland Park, Colorado. After a couple years of doing auto-x and rally-x events I got the itch to go faster and had decided I liked sliding sideways. In late 2004 I got a roll cage installed in a 1988 Mazda 323GTX and convinced my wife to ride shotgun as my navvie. We raced with the Colorado Hill Climb Association (CHCA), a group that puts on 4-6 all dirt hillclimb events in Colorado every summer. Despite running an underpowered 17 year old car, we had a blast and posted up some decent times. Somewhere about the 3rd or 4th race Allison asked me what it would take to start running with the fast guys and my reply was “Evo.” It would take a few years to find...
