Whether they are biking a mountain trail or driving the auto speedway the Blackstar race team does it fast, and they look good while doing it. I was honored to design and wrap two amazing Porsche Cup cars and the trailers that transport them. Last week at the California Festival of Speed at the Fontana Auto Club Speedway, Craig Ames took first place in races both Saturday and Sunday in his ultra wide, and ultra fast GT3R. Here is a look at the design and wrap process. View Post
This bad bull is a custom Lamborghini Gallardo “GST” by IMS Automotive Design. I had the privilege of topping the car off with a set of customized vinyl side stripes. We went with our Gallardo Stripe 002 in gloss black, and designed a “GST” logo in place of the custom text. Besides the decal work, other mods include the GST front bumper, SL carbon fiber wing, SL diffuser, Fabspeed quad exhaust tips, cat delete, 70mm X pipe, BMC air filters, IMS Automotive Design carbon fiber intake boxes, IMS Custom made steering, IMS 3 piece concave forged wheels, IMS SL seats and a crazy drop.

Wraps are great for advertising or changing the color of your car, but did you know wraps can actually help protect your factory paint job at the track? This wrap did its job for over two years on and off the track. Underneath was a like new factory paint job. Of course, we don't like to cruise around in a factory car, so we added some custom graphics that would allow the owner to enjoy his "new" paint job. View Post.

Featured car - Vorsteiner VRT Edition 997 Turbo
The Vorsteiner V-RT (Vorsteiner Race Technologies) latest aerodynamic & forged wheel package is finally being released to the public to add to the current V-GT lineup for the 997 Carrera. The all-new V-RT parts will be available for world wide release after March 23rd, 2009.
The exterior aerodynamic package consists of 3 primary packages. Up front is a new replacement front fascia that features larger carbon fiber air intakes for the radiators and elimination of the fog lights like the factory 997 GT2. A removable dry carbon fiber front lower spoiler adds additional down force to the front end while protecting the front bumper from any steep inclines or road hazards. The principal challenge of this front bumper was maximize weight savings . This was achieved by eliminating the fog lights, and replacing the factory plastic air ducts and hardware with carbon fiber ducting as a molded single component of the front bumper .
The V-RT rear bumper is also designed to offer the 997 Turbo with a wider stance with enlarged side intercooler extraction vents that house a replacement dry carbon fiber shroud that is approximately 35% larger for improved airflow through the intercoolers. The rear bumper also features a new molded carbon fiber rear diffuser with integrated twin aero fins that encompass the quad sport exhaust tips.
The V-RT rear end is completed with a carbon composite rear deck lid/engine cover with twin ram air scoops that feed air into the engine bay and air intake for maximum airflow and cooling. Additionally a carbon fiber wing blade enhances the final appearance while increasing down force to the rear of the vehicle at high speeds
