Formula Drift Round One: Streets of Long Beach

April 5th, 2014 – Formula Drift: Round 1 – “Streets of Long Beach”

Dennis Mertzanis made his re-entry back into the professional drift series, Formula Drift – with his revamped Hyundai Genesis Coupe.

1,000 horsepower is generated from a built CBM engine, with a Vortech Supercharger. This beast sits on Konig Milligrams, wrapped in Kenda Tires, and they spin furiously in every gear.

Mertzanis totes that the practice round was good. Having a solid car, ehem, beast of a racecar for Formula Drift will prove some adjusting, but as the session continued his runs improved.

During the event, the Genesis Coupe made a transition into a wall, which sent the bumper flying off of the car, but this wasn’t a show-stopper.

Dennis qualified 24th in 2 runs with an equal scoring of 70. In the Top 32, Dennis was alluded by Chelsea DeNofa after an engine stall / restart episode.

Shortly after, DeNofa broke an axle and called it quits. Mertzanis had some repairs of his own to make, which with some quick help – got him back on to the blacktop.

Dennis Mertzanis ended up making it into the Top 16, and will move on to Round 2 Atlanta.

You can follow news about Dennis Mertzanis’ 2014 season right here on the Konig Blog as well as visiting Dennis’ Blog over at Wrecked Magazine.

GrassRoots Motorsports Magazine’s Ultimate Track Car Challenge (VIR)

Jeff Seldomridge has been a friend to Konig for years now.  He is a grassroots racer that actively campaigns in NASA events with his Mazda Miata.  Here is a writeup he did about his experience at Grassroots Magazine’s Ultimate Track Car Challenge at Virginia International Raceway.

******************************************************************************

By the early afternoon we finally had the cars new Konig Wheels graphics on, the suspension fixed, the wheels aligned and vehicle secured in the trailer. It is time to get this show on the road. The trip goes well and we arrive safely around 6:30pm. We set up our paddock and begin to unload the car. Here is where the fun begins.

The Ultimate Track Car Challenge begins. Everything from a Subaru station wagon to Lamborghini Super Trofeo we out on track racing for the best lap times. We were separated into two groups, Group B which is fast and Group A which is light speed. Since this was a race for fastest time, the GRM did not want any accidents to occur from slow moving traffic on track.

We landed in position 20 of 31, I certainly was not the fastest but I did the best I could with a car that was simply not dialed in. During the timed sessions on Friday we had a horrible issue with the car giving massive under steer through turns 1, 4, 11 and 17. Without these turns being solid I could not build momentum to the next turn. Momentum is crucial for a low horsepower car. These few turns at VIR are pivotal for just a single fast lap. The fastest I have lapped at VIR is 2:15.1 and I was down at 2:21.4. The difference almost hurt my feelings; I could not believe all this change led to this.

The next day for Saturday’s practice the car handled with considerable difference at 2:19.6. That time is fast enough to have a good race. During Qualifying the exhaust pipe snapped near the header flange, causing exhaust fumes to fill the cockpit. This again, is unacceptable. I cannot risk literally passing out behind the wheel due to carbon monoxide poisoning. So we burned through the paddock hoping to find someone with a welder. Not only did we find someone, he offered to weld it together for free! We were able to make the race because of him and I was grateful.

The race starts. We have an unusual start; our class was placed behind a group of considerably slower class called Spec E30. By the end of the first lap we were all getting jammed into heavy lap traffic. Although the racing was tight and a bit nerve racking, I was able to fight for 3rd place and keep it. I had 1st and 2nd in my sights the whole race but I just did not have enough left in the car to make any safe passes. 3rd place it is and I am completely happy with the result. It raised my spirit, especially after being stripped of 2nd place at the last Hyperfest event in June due to a technical error.

At the end of the day, sun burnt and tired, my dad leaned on my shoulder. He gave me a handshake and said “We earned it this time, son”. I smiled because after all the fails and mistakes, we did our best. Yet, the people that helped us out, at home and at the track, are all I can think of. I will be there to return the favor when their time comes. Of this I have no doubt. -Jeff Seldomridge

Waterfest 19

Waterfest is one of the most premier and largest VW / Audi shows period! This past weekend we were out in Englishtown, NJ representing Konig, Privat and Advanti Racing at Raceway Park. It was extremely hot throughout the weekend, and not just due to the weather, the cars also heated the event up nicely.

Check out some pictures of our booth. We were showing off some of the Privat product with the Weidens in 19×8 / 19×9 on an 08 Audi S5 and we also had a MKV Jetta running 18×9 Privat Remembers that were custom painted orange.

Orange Blend

Nowadays, different and subtle changes make all the difference when styling a vehicle. Wesley Marsh’s 2008 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg Edition is no exception. Wesley used this Platinum Grey exterior as a base, and worked in orange accents throughout the interior/exterior and combined it with a whole slew of performance and automotive sound upgrades. Marsh has chosen the Privat Remembers in Gold with Machined Lip , which is an aggressive wheel with nostalgic appeal and applied his orange blend aesthetic.

The Privat Remember is a retro, European-styled, which comes in a Gold Finish with a Mirror Machined Lip, OR Silver Finish with a Mirror Machined Lip. An Aluminum hex center cap completes that polished look while securely fastening the cover plate and hiding the lugs.

Sizes:
16 x 7
17 x 8, 17 x 9
18 x 8, 18 x 9

Check out the images after the break of Marsh’s Jetta as featured in Performance Auto & Sound “2013 Buyer’s Guide”.

Starting 5th from front is a huge advantage with minimal lap traffic and clean air. The 4 cars in front of me and 3 cars behind me are in PTE also, making for an interesting start.

After squeezing the life out of the Miata it had yielded a much deserved 3rd place.  It’s a warm feeling that comes over any racer when they podium a race, it is a sense of belonging to something greater than racing. It is hard to explain. The car was going home in one piece which is always a good thing after a day of wheel to wheel racing! ” I would do anything to reach 1st place, but I haven’t earned it yet. I have much to learn, as does my crew, so we will continue to do so until the end.”

Next race is June 14th at Summit Point Hyperfest. It is the biggest event of the year for the NASA organization. Hyperfest has got so much to offer the modern car enthusiast that every year gets better. It is a televised and sponsored event supported by the teams, the spectators and some of the biggest industry names.

Jeff Seldomridge JandJRacing will be there and with any luck we will get podium again.

Mertzanis’ Genesis Spotted at 2013 Formula Drift (Tech Day)

Dennis Mertzanis and his brand new Hyundai Genesis Coupe have made their debut at the 2013 Formula Drift tech day this last weekend.  He has been testing rigoriously at Buttonwillow raceway to dial in the car in time  for the season opener.  The streets of long beach is about to turn in record ticket sales for the 2013 season starting in Long Beach April 12-13.  The new setup has gobs of power with an already potent 3.8L v6 under the hood; that was just not enough to break the tires at 80mph.  A Brian Crower 4.0L stroker kit was exactly what the car needed, oh and the addition of a large turbocharger the car will easily blow the tires off at well over 100mph. The car is now putting out a wopping 600hp and 540ft/tq

Dsport Magazines Honda Fit Project Car

Did you checkout Dsport recently?  Well if not you missed some cool Konig stuff in issues 123 (January) and 124 (Febrary)!  In February they were  tuning their Turbocharged Honda Fit which spun the rollers to 164whp/166wtq. The Fit which also had an excellent spread in the January issue, featuring the KONIG Wideopen in 15×8″ ET+20; is now taking this project a step further by completely revamping the car from the ground up. The 15×8 wheels are now not only helping in the handling department  for this nimble machine but also in keeping the power down to the ground. These were a huge improvement over the  Fit’s 15×6″ OEM sizing. Stay tuned for more updates!

Look Back At San Francisco Auto Show

Our good friend Ali Arsham at Gogogear.com who runs the number 33 Hyundai Genesis in NASA’s USTCC series brought both the Genesis and the USTCC Kia Optima pacecar featuring 18” Konig Backbone wheels to the San Francisco International Auto Show back in November.  As you may have seen on here before the Genesis Coupe is running Konig Kilograms in 18″.  The race cars received excellent feedback from the audience.

Genesis Coupe Genesis Coupe

The showing gained interest from men and woman alike; that is, men and woman interested in race cars. The show was sponsored by the San Francisco Chronicle and AutoTrader.com. This gave some of the larger manufactures a chance to show off their latest and greatest. At the event there was a booth setup for “Ride and Drive” which hosted such manufactures as GM, Nissan and Scion. This allowed the spectators to sign up and drive the cars around under a normal setting. In the past Chevy had something similar; “Rev it Up” allowed the drivers to put the cars through 1000ft drag stretch, autocross course and other exciting transitions to get the car loose and leave you smiling the whole time. While this was not nearly as exciting, this was something that 99.999% of the people who were at the show were interested in. How does the car drive on the road everyday and is this the car for me? This gave the spectators the opportunity to drive the car around under supervision with a representative from each company. This allowed the potential buyers the ability to ask questions and get answers on the fly. Traction control remained on so clipping perfect apexes was unavailable during the 15 minute session. The spectators loved the Hyundai Genesis Coupe so much that they even posted a picture of it on the SF Auto Show website.
http://www.sfautoshow.com/special-attractions/aftermarket-alley/

At the show they had a display set up that let spectators view the USTCC race cars and were given the opportunity to get information about USTCC series. Having the vehicles displayed sparked interest as to both the beautiful Konig wheels that were displayed on the race cars but also gained interested in the sport.  People were grabbing the Konig information pamphlets faster than they could be replaced.  

We can’t thank all of the members of USTCC enough especially the wonderful people of team Gogogear.com racing!

Formula Drift Round 6 After Dark: Mertzanis Recap

**This is the official recap written by and courtesy of the Mertzanis Racing team from Formula Drift Round 6: “After Dark” at Las Vegas Motor Speedway – August 24th – 25th**

Right after pulling off the trailer on Thursday night, we went into the private paid practice and started bumper banging on the k-rails, and scraping paint and decals off the rear bumper. With some sway bar tweaks, and a Kenda Tire pressure adjustment, the car felt unstoppable. A full day before qualifying, the car felt fantastic to Dennis Mertzanis and the whole Mertzanis Racing crew.

Friday practice, before qualifying Dennis went out chasing Kyle Mohan, who is one of the fastest drivers on the circuit. Dennis wanted to see how quick the car setup for the weekend was overall. These screen grabs were pulled from our GoPro camera that has a video you can see here.

Dennis explains, “Well, we went flying into the first outer clip together. What is normally a full throttle affair, Mohan went too close to the wall, and hard-braked, slowing down a lot. I was coming in hot and couldn’t slow down fast enough. We made contact and I hit the wall knocking the suspension out of alignment.”

The team worked quickly to get the car back in race trim. Only one KÖNIG Milligram wheel was damaged beyond repair, since it made high-speed contact with the rear bash bar on Kyle Mohan’s Mazda Rx-8. After his two runs, Dennis finished 19th for Kenda Tires, which lined him up against Ryan Tuerck in the Retaks S13. This was a rematch from Round 1 at Streets of Long Beach.

On Saturday, just before competition brought on rain and crazy wind as the drivers hit the track. Luckily, we had a rain setup for the car on standby, but it all dried up before Dennis got on the track for his Top 32 battle. Ryan Tuerck led the first battle in his S13.5 against our Chevrolet Performance Parts powered LS3 S13.4. Dennis held a somewhat conservative, but all around solid follow run behind Tuerck.

After the smoke settled, the judges gave the win over to Ryan Tuerck eliminating Dennis Mertzanis from this weekend’s competition. The team came together and really made huge developments with the S13. Dennis is planning on a huge month of testing in September to get ready for the final round at Irwindale Speedway coming up in October.

Mertzanis lands one of the best performances of his career

**This is the official recap written by and courtesy of the Mertzanis Racing team from Formula Drift Round 5: “Throwdown” at Evergreen Speedway, Monroe, Washington July 20-21**

With some rain hovering around Evergreen Speedway, qualifying in Seattle was going to be a tough challenge. Dennis managed to line up for run 1 before the rain came down, and he rode the bank wall, scoring a huge 80 for his run. He came in through the speed traps at 79.5mph (Speed 1 trap point – 65mph minimum for score) and 38mph (Speed 2 trap point – 35mph minimum for score) and landed one of his best performances in his career.

His second qualifying run with the surface being wet was not an improvement due to the harsh driving conditions laid out by the unpredictable Washington weather. His second run fell short at 65, but still put him in a great position for the main event.

The main event Saturday served up a whole new round of conditions and temperature meaning the team had to make some serious and quick changes. The KW Clubsport suspension had to be moved into different settings along with some alignment changes on our SPL Suspension parts. At last, a quick tire pressure change on the Kenda Tires and the car was ready for a Top 32 round against Daijiro Yoshihara.

The morning practice after these adjustments saw Dennis riding the bank wall so deep he was ripping sponsor banners off the bank walls and leaving them scattered around Evergreen Speedway. He even had some great tandem runs with drivers such as former champion Rhys Millen in his 2013 Hyundai Genesis.

The Top 32 tandem battle put Dennis up against the reigning champion in his Discount Tire S13 for one insane battle. In the following run, Dennis managed to go deeper than the champion coming around the bank, but held onto his car at full lock, no problem. He put together a great run leaving a huge opportunity for victory with his lead run.

Dennis once again went in deep into the bank and came flying into the power alley at full lock and throttle, getting ready for the tight turns to finish the course. All was looking fantastic as his earlier adjustments made the car look like it was going to be a victorious battle.

Tons of smoke was pouring out of the Fuelculture S13.4 as the Kenda Tires screamed through the power alley. Right at this point, Dennis Mertzanis was unable to rotate back with the car and wound up putting it into the k-rail, ending his tandem run early and resulting in damage to his front suspension. This ended the weekend a little early, but the Mertzanis Racing team is ready for Las Vegas now that everything has been replaced from the Seattle battle damage.

Formula Drift Round 5 “Throwdown” Moen Recap

**This is the official recap written by and courtesy of Lutz Performance from Formula Drift Round 5: “Throwdown” at Evergreen Speedway, Monroe, Washington July 20-21**

Round 5 was pure madness the entire time. From two weeks before the event, to the final judging call against Ken Gushi in Top 32. With a new motor in the car and with the help of a Brian Crower stroker kit and cams, we were looking to make some big power. This big power came at a cost because we broke a camshaft. Luckily the old cams were roughly the same size. We were able to get the car running in time for Hal from Dynosty to get it on a local dyno. We ran into some ridiculous wiring issues that prevented us from tuning the car and ended up spending the next 4 days sorting it out. We finally solved the issues which were related to a brand new alternator and power wire that we had put in a few days before. Then on the dyno we had and issue with the AEM base map unlocking the cams, and some fuel delivery issues which maxed us out on fuel way too soon. We then had to tune around that and only ended up making 600 HP. With the car strapped in we left Dynosty happy that we finally had the car working right and headed straight for Monroe.

Thursday morning we got in, set up, and got ready for practice. This was a true test of all of our efforts thus far. Starting out good we felt that the car may be a little underpowered after half the session, so we keep our focus on setting the suspension for the bank. By the end of practice the wiring bugs came back. This was causing the fans to cut off randomly resulting in some very extreme over-heating situations that we were lucky to stay on the good side with.

Friday morning we fixed the fan issue and swapped out the diffs to help move through the power a little easier. We also made some small alignment changes that helped settle the car and made Kenny very happy. So from here everything seemed golden….. But evil would show its face yet again. Kenny started complaining of downshifting issues coming into the infield. As practice went on the issues got worse, and mimicked the same issues that lead to our early defeat in New Jersey. Kenny powered through the issues for the remainder of practice and qualifying, even top32 practice that night. However you could still see his discomfort. So with HUGE THANKS to Bridges Racing, we got to work on getting the clutch out before the end of the night, again huge thanks to them for letting us do this.

Saturday Morning was early, chilly, but much drier than Friday. So we got in early and started immediately on clutch swap as we only had 2.5 hours before the Top 32 practice. We were able to complete this task just in time, dropped the car down and swapped on some fresh tires just as the first few cars started to make a pass. Practice went very smooth, and Kenny was very happy. We were paired up with Ken Gushi for the 2nd time this season, and we knew it was going to be a tough one. The battle ended up going to Gushi after Kenny dropped a tire over the line coming off the bank and ended our long journey early in the fight. Sucks to take a blow to the gut like that after so much work, but hey that’s racing. The only thing we can do is come back better and harder for Vegas. And we will be out for blood!

Formula Drift Round 4 [Mertzanis Recap]

Round 4 of Formula Drift could not have come at a better time for the Mertzanis Racing team. The Fuel Culture S13 rolled off the trailer and started ripping in practice. An Aeromotive fuel cell was loaded with VP Racing 110 octane fuel and Dennis proceeded to put down quality runs at high speeds around the Wall Speedway course.

This is the first banked track of the season we venture to in the Formula Drift series and it results in serious adjustments to the suspension overall and some minor tire pressure adjustments. The result allows Dennis to enter into the bank aggressively and stay flat out for the bottom figure 8 part of the course.

Things became super tricky as qualifying kicked off and the weather changed to rain pouring down. Dennis’ first qualifying run was the key to locking him into the show which ranked him 21st overall.

The draw for Top 32 was a battle against the Go Pro x Mobil 1 Chevrolet Camaro driven by Tyler McQuarrie in a tough first round battle. With Tyler qualifying higher, Dennis’ first duty was to put down a follow run which he performed flawlessly. Dennis then held a tight line against the very fast Camaro going through the complete course.

When Dennis was leading, he took such a high and aggressive line into the bank that he was pushed out into the wall coming off the bank and crashed into the barrier at the last second in an attempt to pull out a giant lead on Tyler McQuarrie. The car came out of it with very minimal damage, luckily, but it did allow Tyler to continue into the Top 16.
