Update: Trailer Stolen

A few weeks ago my personal trailer (luckily a car was not inside, but tools and parts were) was stolen from HBSpeed in Fountain Valley, California while my Genesis Coupe was being worked on.  News of the theft spread throughout the local forums, contacts in the industry and friends.  While at SEMA last week, I was asked if there has been any update by friends.  To my dismay, there has not.  The trailer is still missing and the thieves are still at large.

Therefore, I will repost a few pictures of the trailer and provide a list of my personal items missing.  I am a little embarassed by the large amount of items that I had in the trailer when it was stolen, but it is what it is.  If any one has any information that leads to the recovery of my stolen property, a reward will be given.  The list is long and you can imagine how long it has taken me to accumulate what I had.  Thank you all for keeping the eye out.  It is greatly appreciated.

Been awhile!

So, I know that there has not been many updates in quite a few months, but a lot has been going on to say the least.  First off, MODE Racing is still alive and kicking.  We have had to change our product line a little bit, but we will be adding a few new products to our webstore from ourselves and our supporting sponsors.  To name a few will be the release of the Koyo Radiators for the V6 and 4-cyl turbo, available starting May 3rd, APR Performance’s parts are know available, the MODE Racing 3 gauge pod for the Hyundai Genesis Coupe is a few weeks out (very, very close!!!), and the MODE Racing GTR Dual Oil Cooler for the Nissan GT-R to name a few.  We also still have our double adjustable short shifters for Subaru and Mitsubishi models, Genesis Coupe radiator hoses, Mazdaspeed 3 Radiator Hoses, exhaust hangers and shift weights.

While working on the new products, I have also been working with quite a few race teams this year.  We are continuing to support the HBSpeed Evo X.

I have been helping AQ Motorsports a little with their vehicles, and a very big endeavor has been with COBB Tuning’s new Motorsports program.

I was asked to put together their 370z and a yet to be revealed project (it will be making its debut later this year),

which has been doing very well under the capable hands of owner, Trey Cobb.  I have also been helping them with their GT-R.  Recently Dustin Harris, from COBB Tuning Surgeline, and I rebuilt a GT-R motor after a mishap at the end of the first Redline event of the year at Buttonwillow.  We put it together in a little under a week and the car was up and running last weekend’s event in New Jersey.

I have also been involved with a Canadian Touring Car team, G1 Racing, that has been preparing 3 Hyundai Genesis Coupe V6s for their touring car series.

We still have our Genesis Coupe and will be racing it later this year after a new rollcage has been installed by Brian Lock at COBB Motorsports, and I have finished what I plan to do.  Lets just say, I have a built motor and larger turbo waiting to be installed.  Needless to say it has been a very busy year thus far.  I will be doing my best to update this blog more often with reports, new products, etc.

MODE Racing Installs Cusco Rear 1.5 Way LSD for Hyundai Genesis Coupe!

Pictures from the installation of the Cusco 1.5 way Rear LSD.  I needed to grind down 1 of the fins on the differential cover a few millimeters, but other than that, a simple install.

Test fitting the Cusco LSD in the differential case.

How much I had to grind down the fin on the differential cover.

Seibon Customer Appreciation Day!

So I know that this was quite a while ago, but I thought I would post up some pictures from Seibon Carbon’s customer appreciation day.  Definitely want to thank Seibon Carbon for inviting us to display our 2 project Genesis coupes at the event and for all the help this year.  They plan to do another day next spring, so make sure you stop by.  A lot of great cars, DJs, events and vendors were there.  Please let us know if any of you need Seibon Carbon products for your vehicles, because we can definitely get them for you!  sales@moderacing.com

MODE Racing would like to thank JRZ Suspensions!

This year has definitely been a great one, and one of the companies that we worked with to make our Genesis Coupe 2.0T Time Attack vehicle, happened to be JRZ Suspensions.  We wanted to convert the rear strut/spring setup to a coilover setup and together we collaborated to make this a reality.  We have been using these Racing 3-way coilovers from JRZ for the last half of this year and will continue to use them for years to come.  They are a superb system that has improved the handling of the car sevenfold.  If any Genesis Coupe owner would like a JRZ Suspension setup, be it the same 3-way race setup we are using, a 2-way RS Pro setup, or even a single adjustable RS setup, please contact us via email, sales@moderacing.com.  We will do everything in our power to get you the right setup for your specific needs.
