Around the Shop: 2013

When we aren't building race cars or getting the most potential from engine builds, we have plenty of other things to keep us busy. Here are a few examples!


In the shop today: Comprehensive dyno development program completed for the multiple time SCCA ARRC championship ITA CRX. Now on to corner weight and four wheel alignment. You can see another pic of this CRX on the King Motorsports Instagram feed.

In the shop today- assembling a close-ratio K series transmission for a Lotus Elise with a K swap-nice!

In our fab shop, we just finished up TIG welding an EGT bung to this S2000 header. This S2000 will be the test bed for the upcoming revised Kraftwerks SC kit.... More details to follow!

Have you checked your rear trailing arm bushings lately? 95% of the cars that we see for service have badly deteriorated rear trailing arm bushings. This condition can lead to very unsafe handling. Here we have just installed a set of PCI rear trailing arm bushings in an 88-91 CRX rear trailing arm.

Heading to the track this season? Consider a set of ARP hardened, extended wheel studs. Cheap insurance against bad things happening....

Mugen Nostalgia: F1 and Track Apparel (Updated)

A little Mugen nostalgia to start off your November!


Damon Hill signed this Jordan Mugen hat for us at the Canadian Grand Prix in 1999 after a great lunch with the Jordan boys. This was Damon's last year driving in F1 and it was clear he was tired of F1. His team mate Heinz Harald Frentzen, by comparison was having a tremendous season and was full of energy and was all smiles......



These Mugen hot fingers gloves were standard issue for all the Mugen mechanics working in the field circa 1989-1990.



Here's a Mugen Sports team jacket circa 1989. Very cool to wear at the track back in the day. Shown here propped up Mugen's new MS-Z Semi Bucket Seat.



Update 2/14/2013:


Here is another great Mugen jacket circa 1998; part of the Mugen/Honda F1 racing team collection.



Update 3/16/2013:


1999 Mugen/Honda Formula 1 team gear...


Mugen Fit spec. D Concept



Some Fit love! ... The 2007 Mugen Fit spec. D concept car. We've always admired the Fit for its versatility and sporting character- always punching well above its weight!

The concept features a mean "power bulge" hood reminiscent of the RSX Mugen hood. A gunmetal grill and Mugen badge class up the front end. Gunmetal Mugen GP wheels fill out the chiseled widebody kit that elaborately transforms every panel and door on the profile of the car.





We currently have quite a few Mugen performance parts on sale for the Fit!

Mugen Helmets

Here are a few rare helmets made by Mugen (to keep your skull safe while you're chasing the crown).

This all-white, super clean helmet was available in the late 80's.



And here are pics shared by Shaun J. of his NOS 80's Mugen helmet -- beautiful!





Mugen Factory: Machining Center



Here's a glimpse of the inner working of the Mugen factory- the Machining Center. The entire Machining Center is built on a giant pad that absorbs any vibrations caused by seismic tremors that could cause the sensitive machinery to go out of calibration.
