Ryan Schnitz Records First 6-Second Pro Street Motorcycle  ¼ Mile Pass

11_1006_Ryan_Andy_Roberts_Photo1Ryan Schnitz has made history, becoming the first rider to record a six-second run on a street-tire bike at the MIROCK ‘Fast by Gast’ – Fall Nationals at Maryland International Raceway. Riding the nitrous-injected HTP Suzuki of Cecil Towner, Schnitz recorded a mind-boggling 6.907 elapsed time at 203.06 mph during the first round of eliminations in the Pro Street class.“When I went through the finish line I knew it was the fastest I had been on the bike,” said Schnitz. “I thought it was a 6.96 or a 6.97. A 6.90 was unreal!”

Schnitz’ 1/8 mile numbers were 4.531 seconds at 171.03 MPH – a time that would have put him in the top half of the Pro Mod field at the event.

“It feels awesome,” said Towner. “Ryan and I had this as goal from the beginning of the year. When we started running 7.0s there was a lot of attention on us. I am glad to get that monkey off my back.”

The run came more than ten years after Brock Davidson made the first seven-second streetbike run, recording a 7.973 at 179 mph on May 21, 2000 at Rockingham Dragway on a nitrous-injected Suzuki Bandit in the old Streetbike Shootout class.

The Unique BST Carbon Composite Wheel


The Unique BST 5 or 7 Spoke Carbon Composite Wheel

MV3-2-largeThe unique BST 5 or 7spoke carbon composite wheel is made using the state of the art technology, materials and manufacturing processes. This lightweight and exceedingly strong wheel is suitable for both racing and street use. The wheels have been tested at Rim Technology, Eurotype Test Centre and German TUV, and passed all the tests for road certification. And most important of all, our wheels are unique in that they are created as a single unit – we do not bond pieces together.

BST wheels are unique – monocoque (single unit) design with 5 or 7 hollow spokes and are suitable for both street and race use.

BST wheels will save you anything between 40% – 60% in weight, and more importantly, are designed to deliver the lowest Moment of Inertia – the critical factor that affects the performance of the bike.

Because we can engineer with carbon fiber and maximize on its properties of high strength and low weight, we have reduced the weight in the spokes and rim without compromising strength. The weight is therefore concentrated in the hub, which means that rotational inertia is reduced, making the bike easier to handle, and allowing you to accelerate quicker and brake later. So not only is the wheel lighter, but it is engineered for maximum performance.

 


 

ISO9001:2008 Standards

The entire process is managed under ISO9001:2008 standards.

We design the tooling, moulds, wheel and the hubs and manufacture them onsite. Cutting machines such as those used in the aeronautical industry ensure that the process is guaranteed and repeatable to our high standards. Layup is done in a clean room (dust-free).

The wheels are cured in an Autoclave at 125 degrees C and 6 bar of pressure. This ensures the best compaction and surface finish. Every step of the process is logged and the entire history of each wheel is stored with its unique Serial Number.

The carbon fiber we use is a combination of woven and unidirectional formats, and is embedded in a resin matrix made from toughened epoxy.
Pre-preg is used as the machine application of the specific resin systems ensures the most controlled and even application and therefore the highest quality material for use in all BST products

BST – Debut into Carbon Fiber Car Wheels Takes off! 05RR WORLD DEBUT AT 2016 GOODWOOD FOS

The VUHL 05RR, Mexico’s most exhilarating export and precision-engineered lightweight supercar, takes to Lord March’s drive this weekend to make its world debut.

The previous incarnation of the 05 wowed the crowds at the Festival of Speed two years ago with F1 racer Esteban Gutierrez at the wheel. With BST fittings and our brand new carbon fiber rims  specifically built for this supercar giving him  reduced weight and 25 percent more power under his right foot, British GP2 challenger and Manor Racing F1 reserve driver Jordan King plans to go even faster on Friday.

VUHL will be starring in Goodwood’s Michelin Supercar Paddock, parked on the phenomenal Michelin Cup 2 tyres that wrap its ultra-lightweight  BST Carbon Fibre Wheels. Between them and the 05RR’s revised aero package, which includes a full-width rear wing and F1-inspired diffuser strakes, following extensive wind tunnel development at MIRA, by Collins LTD. Road-registered but track-focused, the VUHL 05RR comes with full carbon fibre bodywork and a hybrid aluminium-carbon monocoque to trim its already low weight by over 10 percent to 640kg dry. Its highly efficient 2.3l Ecoboost engine, with 6-speed sequential gearbox, produces 385 horsepower, marking a gain of 100bhp over the original VUHL 05.  The resulting 600bhp-per-tonne statistic is greater than the Ferrari F12 tdf, McLaren P1 and Bugatti Veyron.

Zero to 62mph arrives in 2.7 seconds and it keeps climbing to 160mph. A lowered centre of gravity of 50mm and high speed steering rack result in the ultimate race car for the road.

Jordan King said: “There’s usually a big difference between what people consider a supercar and what is a proper racing car. I’m really excited to drive the Vuhl 05RR because it has the perfect recipe: lightweight to the core, huge power-to-weight, and it looks incredible. Goodwood is going to be a tonne of fun.”

Iker Echeverria, VUHL Technical Director: “The Goodwood Festival of Speed is a Mecca for performance car aficionados and the perfect place to reveal the stunning new 05RR. We’ve upgraded this car in every area to make it faster, more engaging and more aggressive.”
