When it comes to development for performance technology in cars, motorsport is where a lot of it happens. Products are put to the ultimate test of endurance and performance and that leads to the parts then sold onto the public being capable of meeting the highest of standards.
So at XFORCE, we are passionate about racing and our exhausts are used in a variety of motorsport categories around the world. That means we’ve had the help of the world’s greatest engineers, mechanics and drivers in improving our exhaust systems.
Here are a few examples of motorsport categories around the world XFORCE are involved with:
Being Australia’s number one motorsport category, the V8s are extremely competitive with multimillion dollar teams fighting it out over 15 race weekends a year including the famous Bathurst 1000 at Mt Panorama. XFORCE are aligned with Tekno Autosports who in 2015 claimed three race wins and a total of seven podium finishes.
The V8 Utes are one of the most popular support categories to the V8 Supercars with Holden Commodore and Fold Falcon utes rubbing panels – often literally – with each other all over the country. The utes are almost completely factory standard bar their tyres, shocks, ECU and exhaust system. The latter is where XFORCE come in. Every single car in the field runs full exhaust systems custom made by XFORCE.
Drifting has evolved into one of the world’s most popular motorsport genres and it continues to grow in Australia as well. While most competitors choose Japanese cars for their sideways work, Queenslander Nick “Driftkid” Coulson competes in Australian drifting championships using a trusty Holden Commodore ute. It’s not your regular work truck though, under the hood lives a supercharged LS2 V8 motor which pumps out 430kW (550hp). With that amount of power on tap, it needs a serious exhaust system. The ute runs a complete custom XFORCE system.
When it comes to the quarter mile, horsepower is almost everything and Top Fuelers make more ponies than any other type of race car. So a good exhaust and headers is essential. XFORCE have partnered up with Australian Top Fuel racer and team owner Darren Morgan to do just that.
Red Bull Global Rallycross Lites driver Alejandro Fernandez is one of the best up and coming racers around and amazingly he’s only been racing for four years! At just 20 years of age, he’s already amassed a truckload of trophies and is being coached by former IndyCar and sports car driver Buddy Rice. XForce is a proud backer of Fernandez and recommend you keep an eye out for his name in the future!
OFF STREET DRAG RACING
It’s not just professional motorsport that XFORCE is heavily involved with, we are at the grass roots as well. XFORCE are big supporters of Off Street racing including Race 4 Real Wednesdays at Sydney Dragway. For just $50 anyone with a drivers licence can take their car to the track and see what it can do down the quarter mile. XFORCE are frequently at the track talking to customers and listening to what they want or need in an exhaust system.
