Turn 14 Distribution, the performance warehouse giant which supplies aftermarket goods globally and prides itself on stocking its partners’ complete product lines, announced it will be the title sponsor for Evasive Motorsports’ Tesla Model 3 Performance campaign at the 2021 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Turn 14’s Director of Marketing, Daryl Sampson states, “Turn 14 Distribution’s goal to be an industry leader is consistent with our involvement in this project. We love the sound and emotion of internal combustion engines but recognize and support the increasing growth of the EV and hybrid market by the OE’s. Evasive Motorsports sees this, too, and we are happy to partner with them on this effort.”
Piloting the Model 3 is Turn 14-sponsored athlete and wheel ace, Dai Yoshihara, a talent who has competed—and realized success—in drift, time attack, and hill climb events.
The Champs Return
This isn’t Evasive Motorsports’ first trip to Pikes Peak. The military precise tuning firm has taken a crack at the mountain on six occasions, and in 2020 it found huge success. With Yoshihara behind the wheel for a second consecutive year, the group’s heavily modified Toyota 86, powered by the venerable Supra-derived 2JZ-GTE, realized victory in the Unlimited Division. Struggle and drama typically accompany the exhaustive effort at Pikes Peak and Evasive’s story had plenty of both.
The EVS Tuning Tesla Model 3 just had its first shakedown at the Streets of Willow. Look for more updates on this vehicle as we plan to take it to the next Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in the EV Class. In the meantime, check out the new EVS Tuning ESC01 Wheel, spec’d as a non-staggered fitment of 19×9.0 +35.
Through a flow-formed production process, our goal is to provide a elegant, yet sporty design. This will allow us to provide a reasonably priced, lightweight aftermarket wheel with structural integrity up to par with the standards of JWL, VIA, & SAE.
In collaboration with Titan 7, Evasive Motorsports now offers an exclusive S2000 SPEC, forged T-D6 in 17×9.5 +51 5×114.3 sizing. This wheel is now available in Iridium Silver, Satin Ti, Machine Black, and Techna Bronze. Our recommended tire sizing is 255/40/17. Forged for All is Titan 7’s motto, and starting at only $1,980 for a set, it’s difficult to refute.
These wheels are also made to clear most popular big brake upgrades such as Spoon Sports calipers, AP Racing and Stoptech ST40 BBK without requiring spacers.
In the works is the new VR21C. Combination of a wide step rim and the dimple design carries on the DNA of the original Gr.C model. Designed with the latest analytic technology while keeping the nostalgia, now with fitments for a variety of vehicles from classic to modern. Also coming up is the 10th anniversary edition of the TE37V. Patented A.M.T. machining technology on right and left spokes is featured for this special anniversary edition. This made in Japan, Forged One Piece Mono block is scheduled to mark its debut in Spring, 2021. Stay tuned for more details.
Sizes and specifications may change without notice. Prices will be announced at a later time.
We’re ecstatic to announce that Dai Yoshihara and Evasive Motorsports has finished 1st place in the Unlimited Class at this years Pikes Peak International Hill Climb! 2020 has been a difficult year for everyone, and the journey to this year’s Pikes Peak event was just as grueling as it’s been in the past. The outcome and win made it all that much more sweet!
