Tyler Friend: Fresh, Fast, and Furious!

 

Kimmy’s Garage would like to feature Tyler Friend on today’s blog!

Tyler’s racing career began in 2018, after attending her first race in Columbus, Ohio. She didn’t have much exposure to racing, but after that particular race weekend, she knew it was something she was destined to do! In October 2018, Tyler bought her 2015 Eco Post Mustang and her first race was this year in Bradenton, Florida. This race was pivotal for Tyler, as she caught the eye of Brad and Nina Gussler and they approached her with a sponsorship offer!

“BG Racing is helping me tremendously. Brooks Smith is my crew chief and my fiancé and I wouldn’t be able to race if it wasn’t for him. I’m also being sponsored by Stifflers, who gave me a drive shaft loop. My plans for 2019 include staying in Ford Muscle and my goal is to get into the Aerospace Components Winner’s Circle!”, Tyler shared.

We wish you the best of luck in the beginning of your racing career, Tyler! Hope to see you in the Aerospace Component’s Winner’s Circle!

John Schaeffer: PROJECT SILVER JUICE

Kimmy’s Garage would like to highlight John Schaeffer and his car, Silver Juice!

John Schaeffer’s need for speed isn’t slowing down anytime soon! With his 99 Camaro Z28 full street legal car, John’s racing schedule and continued upgrades to the car are full speed ahead!

His car, appropriately named Silver Juice based on its silver sheen, is fully equipped with a Dart Ls Next from Mike Lough Racing Engines. Diamond Pistons came on board last year and John and his team are currently testing the LSK pistons that are a great off-the-shelf-piston, paired with a Cam motion cam and Mast Cathedral heads to drive air from the F1X Procharger to maximize the power. The suspension is UMI full suspension with a Midwest Chassis Torque arm and AFCO race shocks on all 4 corners to drive the cars 1.17 60fts. Last but not least, in order to achieve ‘lightning fast stopping power’ on the car, John proudly has Aerospace Brakes installed all around his car.

“The Aerospace shifter has been a game changer for me”, John shared. The short shifting stroke and having it wired to the ECU to shift at the optimum RPM gives John the extra edge when beating the competition on close races. His family was also relieved he installed Aerospace brakes, considering his chute didn’t deploy during a run, but thankfully he was able to stop with no issues. 

“I trust Aerospace Brakes every time I pull up to the tree to release the trans brake on my Pro Eliminator shifter!”

   John and his team are thrilled with the new upgrades on the car this year; including titanium valves, Procharger Volute, Firecore wires, PTC Stall, and AEM wide bands for better tuning capability. With all of these upgrades complete, John is expecting to see 4.5xs out of the car this year on a 275 drag radial.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

His ultimate goal this year is to win some big upcoming races! John has his sight set on hitting 4.60s in the car and getting the 60ft down to the 1.10 range. They’re running the X275 series and will look at doing the Street Outlaw class at Indy, which is similar to the X275 class they currently run now. Another goal for John? To complete in the NMCA races & get in the Aerospace Component’s Winners Circle!!

With a packed racing schedule ahead of John and his team, including the upcoming No Prep Street Car Showdown on June 30th at Ozark Raceway Park, he is prepared and ready to continue his streak and strive for victory!

We wish John and his team the best of luck for the remainder of the racing year! 

 

Congratulations on Runner Up Holley LS FEST 2019 !!!!  So Awesome,John

Kimmy’s Garage would like to feature Matt Rose and the Rose Racing team on today’s blog!

Rose Racing’s Favorite Products:

  • F/Stock Duster uses Aerospace drag race brake kits on front and rear 
  • S/Comp dragster uses Aerospace brake pads on rear and Big block Chrysler vacuum pump kit.

We also carry a spare shorty tailshaft roller bearing AC-215.

Most recently, the Rose Racing Team loaded up and headed 600 miles west to Denver, CO for the first (of six) NHRA Lucas Oil Division 5 Series event! Denver offers the Rose Racing Team a unique opportunity for tuning race cars that typically run at a “corrected” altitude of 1500’. Since there is less oxygen available, the cars run slower. Matt’s Super Comp dragster typically runs on a 8.90 second index.

At Denver, his index is adjusted to 9.50! Subsequently, Chuck’s Stock Eliminator ’72 Duster index is adjusted from 11.85 to 12.60 seconds. Regardless of the challenging environment, it’s a favorite stop nonetheless for the team, as Bandimere Speedway happens to be one of the most beautiful dragstrips in the country. It’s built into the side of the mountain just off C-470 in Morrison, Colorado, where the other side of the mountain is the infamous Red Rocks Ampitheather.
