TX2K17: A World Record Weekend at Royal Purple Raceway

If you've never had the pleasure of attending TX2K, you may not know what you're missing out on. Some have referred to it as "The Super Bowl of Street Car Racing," and we'd have to agree. It's an event that's gone from being Supra-centric, to a full on clash of automotive titans. #TeamXPEL en route to TX2K17 After a brief stop at XPEL Houston, we pressed onward to Royal Purple Raceway for the main event. David set the pace in his XPEL ULTIMATE wrapped Dodge Challenger SRT 392. Consequentially, it was the perfect opportunity for snapping rolling shots! We weren't alone on the drive in either. A few miles out from the track, we came upon a lone Chicane Grey McLaren 570s that was also making its way to TX2K17. The driver surprised us with a lightning fast flyby before putting a few car lengths on our convoy. On Location at Royal Purple Raceway With our tent all set up close to the staging lanes, we were in a prime position for event's festivities. While the yellow XPEL Tundra is eye catching on its own, we opted to draw a crowd in proper TX2K fashion: horsepower. Over the course of our stay at RPR, we had a combined excess of around 3,000+ HP on deck between two Lamborghinis. First up was a beautiful Underground Racing Superleggera. The following day, a bright orange Heffner Performance Gallardo graced the booth. Amidst Facebook Live streams, we took some time to educate attendees on the advantages of XPEL ULTIMATE & STEALTH self-healing clear bra as well as our PRIME window films. We saw a lot of familiar faces and we also made a few new friends. One attendee even told us he's hoping to expanding the XPEL Dealer Network all the way to Jamaica! As luck would have it, our neighbors from Eat Sleep Race brought out a crazy RHD Rocket Bunny S15 with a Nissan RB26 motor swap. It was quite a sight to behold and definitely attracted a lot of attention from event goers. Car Spotting Around the Grounds There was a wide variety of vehicles to see at TX2K17, from tuners to exotics & beyond. Most of all, the Nissan GT-R presence at TX2K has grown stronger with each passing year, and 2017 was no exception. For example, it's not every day that we get to see a line up of GT-R's spanning four generations! Between the rows of tents & team trailers, we spotted a Radical RXC, the same elusive grey McLaren, and even a new Ford Raptor. One of the great things about an event like TX2K is that a majority of the cars there came to race. Hard parking isn't on the event schedule. Venturing over towards the dyno zone, we spied a lone Mazda RX-7 prepping for a pull. As spectators looked on, the FD grumbled to life in an eruption of boost. One of the nice things about dyno days at TX2K is the fact that it's open to all makes & models. Anyone can test their power output whether they're running AWD or 2WD. It's hard to resist snapping a pic of anything that's XPEL yellow. A well-kept Ford GT sat unassumingly near the tail end of the staging lanes a few feet away from the action. While it seemed to be stock in nature, you can never be too sure of what's lurking below the surface at an event like TX2K. Beyond our booth, there were quite a few cars on-site protected with XPEL ULTIMATE clear bra as well. A UR8 Lamborghini Huracan, Huracan Spyder, and a Murcielago sat near the track entrance looking as good as the day they got wrapped. Even a brand new 2017 Acura NSX found its way to TX2K, shining bright in metallic pearl white. No doubt, it was a perfect candidate for paint protection! Trackside at TX2K17 Exploring the pits at the track is an experience in itself, but the real reason to attend is the racing. As Gold Tier sponsors of TX2K17, we had access to get right up in the thick of it, and it didn't disappoint. With our team polos caked in tire fragments, permeated by the smell of exhaust, we ended every day wide eyed & grinning. As a result of our proximity, we may have suffered some minor hearing loss, but it was worth it. Next time we'll make sure to bring some ear protection. From the tower walkways, we got a bird's eye view of the action. If you're not familiar with roll racing, the concept is simple: cars have to maintain a designated speed as they approach the start point.  Once they reach the flag, it's wide open throttle till the end of the pass and as a result, whoever gets there first, wins. In a sense, roll racing brings the rush of freeway pulls to a safer, more controlled environment. With multiple brackets & classes competing, there was plenty of high-horsepower entertainment to take in. As the days events progressed, the anticipation for automotive insanity continued to elevate. WITNESSING HISTORY IN THE MAKING We saw quite a few passes during our four day stay at Royal Purple Raceway. Breaking records at TX2K is by no means a rare occurrence and it's always mind blowing to see first hand. With trap speeds reaching into the 200s, a few measly seconds can feel like a century waiting for the results to come in. One of the first record breakers was none other than a twin turbo UR4 Huracan piloted by KC Howeth of Underground Racing. In the first round of roll racing, KC set a new track top speed of 217 MPH. Working his way through eliminations, Howeth wound up in the finals placing 1st in the Unlimited Class. Excitement brewed over with exhibition drag racing from AMS Performance and ETS. While multiple teams were gunning for the elusive 6 second quarter mile pass, only one emerged victorious. Despite suffering an engine fire the day prior, the AMS Alpha G GT-R brought the quickness. For a moment, time seemed to slow to a near halt. The announcer boomed over the loudspeaker, and the clocks confirmed it: Gidi Chamdi set a new world record. Cheers erupted from the crowd. The media swarmed around Gidi & the AMS team while they took in the moment. For those who missed out, check out the video clip below and watch the Alpha G's insane 6.9 second pass for yourself. Video courtesy of 1320 Video WRAPPING UP & ROLLING OUT All in all, it seems safe to say that TX2K17 was one of the best ones yet. It's an epic showcase of automotive awesomeness, and exactly the type of event we love to sponsor. We're already looking forward to sharing the benefits of XPEL clear bra & window films with attendees next year. TX2K18 can't come soon enough!

BMW X5M Meets Its Match at XPEL San Antonio

2016 BMW X5M - San Antonio XPEL Install Protected with XPEL ULTIMATE and PRIME XR Window Film This week in the shop we have this gorgeous 2016 BMW X5M, which boasts a mind blowing 567 horsepower. This is one of the coolest SUV’s that we’ve seen come in the shop lately. The owner knew the importance of protecting their pride and joy with XPEL. We didn’t stop at just our Clear bra aka Paint Protection Film, we also installed our XPEL PRIME Window film on the windows. The owner had all the windows on this powerful family hauler tinted with our PRIME XR nano-ceramic window film, which helps keep the vehicle cool during the summer and provides cabin privacy (click for more information about PRIME Window Film). Once the window film was completed, we started wrapping this German beauty with only the best, XPEL ULTIMATE clear bra. Installation begins on the 2016 BMW X5M When we begin the installation process, the first step is washing the vehicle. Once the vehicle is clean, the installers begin to use a clay bar to remove any surface contaminants on the vehicles paint. Contaminants can be industrial fallout, overspray, sap, etc. Once the vehicle is smooth and clean, our installers will wipe the surface down with isopropyl alcohol to ensure that any grease, wax, slime is removed before applying the clear bra. Now that the vehicle is fully prepped for the XPEL ULTIMATE paint protection film, the installers apply/spray XPEL Installation Gel onto the vehicle, which allows the film to float so they can align the pre-cut kits precisely before using their squeegee to lock the film in place. Once the installers have the film aligned correctly, they start squeegeeing the film into place, which bonds it to the vehicles paint. Finished Product Once the installers finish applying the clear paint protection film, they will inspect their work and make any final adjustments before sending the vehicle back to the customer. After the final quality check is complete, the film should be barely noticeable to the untrained eye. This is done by competent installers, accurate and precise pre-cut kits that allow for wrapped edges. Always ask your installer for wrapped edges where possible, meaning that the film is wrapped over the body panel. I.e. the film would have wrapped around the edges of the hood, so there wouldn’t be visible seams to collect dirt and dust. Most vehicles allow for the film to be wrapped, although some vehicles do not.   Installation Gallery   Completed Pictures    San Antonio XPEL Install Center If you live in the San Antonio area or surrounding areas, contact us today to get XPEL ULTIMATE installed.

Porsches 2 Ohio – Granville, Ohio

P2O, Porsches 2 Ohio 2015 Featuring XPEL ULTIMATE and '15 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet  It was a chilly, bright and early July morning in Granville Ohio for the official start of P2O, Porsches 2 Ohio. The Porsches started arriving at 6:30am to the already closed main street, where the show was being hosted. Yes, they closed down the main street that connects the town of Granville, Ohio. The vendors and Sponsors were finished with there set up, and started greeting Porsche enthusiasts as they began to wipe down their vehicles.   Then we heard these two magnificent Porsches arriving, a Cayman Race Car and the 887 horsepower, $929,000 Porsche 918 Spyder. These two beauties were the center of attention for the entire show. We only wish they were protected with XPEL ULTIMATE. Get an installation quote from a XPEL  Installer. Below are the patterns that were installed on the Red Porsche 911 GTS. To view the pattern for your vehicle: Click Here Full Front End Bumper, Hood, Fenders, Mirrors and A-Pillars       Picture from the show XPEL Ultimate Self-healing Clear Bra XPEL ULTIMATE leads the industry with it's clarity, durability, gloss retention and more.

Protecting your car has many benefits. It will help maintain your car’s factory finish, make your car easier to clean, help the resale value of your vehicle, all while it is being protected from every day driving. Demonstration of our XPEL ULTIMATE self-healing properties Our XPEL ULTIMATE film self-heals from light scratches, swirl marks and rock chips while driving or maintaining your vehicle. During the show we use a Brass wire brush to simulate the every day occurrences that can affect the film. With the sun on the display the scratches from the brush instantly disappear. When the sun is not available, you can accelerate the healing process with a cup of warm water or a heat source. Not all Patterns are created equal At XPEL we pride ourselves on our pre-cut pattern software. By using a pre-cut pattern you’ll have less to worry about, since the installer will not be trimming the film on your vehicle. Using a pre-cut pattern the film will naturally fit without excessive stretching or contortion, which means the finished product not only lines up perfectly but is free of defects which could be visible once the install is finished. Contrary to what some may believe it’s possible to wrap edges using a computer cut pattern which gives you a much better protection and installation. With XPEL Technologies Corp., all patterns are available with precision cut wrapped edges where possible. Where a wrapped edge is not possible, for example around the parking sensors on a bumper, reverse cameras and more, the film is always machine cut with precision. You can pick and choose your coverage options. Door handle inserts, also known as door cups.

2012 Fisker Karma Clear Bra Installation

Entire Car Wrapped XPEL ULTIMATE Self-Healing Paint Protection Film XPEL installer, Regan Brunner and company founder, Tim Hartt installed paint protection film on every panel of this new Fisker Karma with the exception of the roof. Since the roof functions as a large solar panel on the Karma, it was decided that it would be best to leave that part of the car alone.   XPEL Ultimate Self-healing Clear Bra XPEL ULTIMATE leads the industry with it's clarity, durability, gloss retention and more. We stand behind our product 100%, so much so that ULTIMATE has a 10-year warranty covering defects such as yellowing, cracking, staining, blistering and/or delaminating. Protecting your car has many benefits. It will help maintain your car’s factory finish, make your car easier to clean, help the resale value of your vehicle, all while it is being protected from every day driving. Demonstration of our XPEL ULTIMATE self-healing properties Our XPEL ULTIMATE film self-heals from light scratches, swirl marks and rock chips while driving or maintaining your vehicle. During the show we use a Brass wire brush to simulate the every day occurrences that can affect the film. With the sun on the display the scratches from the brush instantly disappear. When the sun is not available, you can accelerate the healing process with a cup of warm water or a heat source. Not all Patterns are created equal At XPEL we pride ourselves on our pre-cut pattern software. By using a pre-cut pattern you’ll have less to worry about, since the installer will not be trimming the film on your vehicle. Using a pre-cut pattern the film will naturally fit without excessive stretching or contortion, which means the finished product not only lines up perfectly but is free of defects which could be visible once the install is finished. Contrary to what some may believe it’s possible to wrap edges using a computer cut pattern which gives you a much better protection and installation. With XPEL Technologies Corp., all patterns are available with precision cut wrapped edges where possible. Where a wrapped edge is not possible, for example around the parking sensors on a bumper, reverse cameras and more, the film is always machine cut with precision. You can pick and choose your coverage options. Door handle inserts, also known as door cups. This area is prone to getting scratched when entering and exiting the vehicle with rings, fingernails, etc... Luggage Area Kit. This area is prone to damage due to items being removed from the trunk.
