Arguably, the most important part of a race car is its brakes.  No matter how fast a car is, if it can't stop, it wont be a race car for very long.  Not only is it important to have your brakes work, but to get the most out of your car and turn in fast lap times, your brakes also have to be consistent and dependable. "As a driver, if a car's brakes are working properly its something that is constantly on the front of my mind while out on track, wondering if my car will slow down eno...
This past weekend the Berk Technology crew headed up to Buttonwillow Raceway for what would turn out to be an incredible event.  It was the 2010 Redline Time Attack season opener and the rumors were flying about who was showing up, who wasn't showing up, which new teams are going to be fast, and which lap records will fall.  After a long dry spell of placing just outside of the podium in the Street Tire RWD class all last year, the Berk Technology crew worked tirelessly through the...

If you are involved in the S2000 scene, chances are you have seen one of four, yes four, S2000's built by Ryan Mahoney.  His first S2000 build can still be seen in current Vortech Supercharger ads.  His second S2000 graced the cover of Modified Magazine, while his third S2000 became a quick hit on the forums.  His fourth and current S2000 is a bit different though with a build that is focused on performance as well as looks.  Ryan is part owner of TimeAttackForums.com, an o...
This past Friday Berk Technology headed out to the Streets of Willow Springs Raceway with our time attack BMW 135i for the Redline Time Attack Official Test Day.  While we are still waiting on a number of parts to come in for our off-season improvements, we didn't have much to test, but the decision was made last-minute to go out to the event and test anyway just to double-check and make sure the parts that are on the car are in proper working order.  With that in mind, driver Mike B...

In our ongoing pursuit for victory in the Redline Time Attack series we continue to find the best quality parts to help us make our Time Attack BMW 135i faster.  When it came to addressing the rear alignment parts, we looked no further than Velocity Motorcars.  Their rear camber and toe arms for the 135i are second to none in quality and fitment.  A direct replacement of the factory arms, the Velocity Motorcars arms offer a much greater range of adjustment which will allow us to...
