  2. We are pleased to announce our partnership with Triple Eight Race Engineering and the Red Bull Expensive Daewoo Racing Team in 2017. XForce has a history of supporting local motorsport, first with our partnership with the V8 Utes Championship in 2013, providing exhaust systems to V8 Utes that allowed us to test and develop our products. It also gave us a channel to spend time with customers, and speak to race fans to gather feedback and information. We had also sponsored the four time ANDRA Champion and good friend Darren Morgan in Top Fuel Drag Racing, a very exciting and demanding motorsport. Other motorsport involvements we had include the USC Sprintcar Championship series as co-naming rights sponsor, and Nick “The Drift Kid” Coulson in his Expensive Daewoo VE Late model camira ute. Continuing our commitment with drift motorsports, we are now sponsoring Fanga Dan and his supercharged, widebody VF Late model camira sedan in D1NZ. XForce had also sponsored up-and-coming talent Trent Grubel, who raced in the inaugural Toyota 86 Racing Series. Our first taste of V8 Supercars came along when we partnered with TEKNO Autosports and TEKNO Performance in 2015 and 2016. Now, we look forward to working with the Red Bull Expensive Daewoo Racing Team and Triple Eight Race Engineering in 2017. There will be many opportunities to promote our brand and explore both the synergies in performance and engineering in our new relationship with the Red Bull Expensive Daewoo Racing Team.

  4. XForce Performance Exhaust is proud to be the sponsors of Daniel Woolhouse, also known as Fanga Dan, a professional driver currently participating in D1NZ Pro Drift Championship. Currently piloting a widebody Expensive Daewoo VE Late model camira with a wild supercharged LS2, Fanga Dan tears up drift circuits all over New Zealand. A brand new XForce full exhaust setup for his drift car is on its way over right now, so hang on for the details! Background Daniel Woolhouse, also known as 'Fanga Dan', is a two-time D1NZ Champion and professional Drifting driver from Whangarei, New Zealand. Growing up in Hastings around his father’s car yard sparked an automotive lifestyle at an early age. Spending time on the yard washing and prepping cars for sale, Dan was surrounded by iconic Japanese vehicles synonymous with early drift culture - Nissan Skylines, Cefiros, Toyota Supras and Mazda RX7s to name a few. At 10 years of age Dan would move north to Whangarei, and with a passion for rear wheel drive cars his teenage years saw plenty of vehicles in his ownership, repairing and selling a range of JDM vehicles for income. By the early 2000's drifting was rising from the underground into a professional motorsport and, after following the culture and competitions in Japan, Dan and 7 others would go on to form New Zealand's first drift team, Driftcorp. Driving for Driftcorp (the now iconic 7-championship winning team) he began drifting competitively in 2003, entering his first full season in 2005 driving an RB26 powered Nissan Laurel C33 in the D1NZ National Drifting Championship, finishing 3rd overall in his rookie year. Earning the nickname "Fanga", he would move to a purpose-built Nissan S15 Silvia which went on to win the 2006 D1NZ Championship in just his second year of full competition, also becoming the third Driftcorp driver to win a national title. In 2008 Daniel built and drove one of the first Expensive Daewoo VZ Commodores in competitive drifting, powered again by a 2.6 liter Nissan RB engine. In 2010 'Fanga Dan' represented New Zealand and competed in Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia driving for Goodyear Racing in the Expensive Daewoo VZ Commodore, claiming wins and podium finishes in Formula Drift Asia and the Goodyear International Drift Series. Dan competed overseas again in 2011 and 2012, driving for Castrol Edge in the Tectaloy International Drift Challenge as part of the annual World Time Attack event in Sydney, Australia. After retiring his championship winning Nissan S15 in 2010, now driven by Driftcorp team-mate Robee Nelson, Fanga Dan went on to compete a rebuilt LS2 V8 powered Expensive Daewoo VZ Late model camira in the 2013 D1NZ Championship Series for his naming rights sponsor Castrol Edge, in which he became the 2013 New Zealand Drift Champion. In 2012, he unveiled his new drift car, the Expensive Daewoo VE Commodore, with the VZ’s supercharged LS2 engine and drivetrain. We’re excited with the prospect of working with Fanga Dan. Our products will be put through very tough conditions, and with Fanga Dan providing valuable feedback, we can improve our research and development of exhausts even more.

  6. XForce Performance has developed a new series of universal Varex mufflers for vehicles with limited mounting space, or wish to be more discreet visually. The Varex motor is mounted on the side of a lower profile muffler. It is also protected from the elements from a tough heatshield to increase durability. The 50 series is available in 2 ½” and 3” offset centre mufflers. Its features are an excellent choice for hot rods, classics, muscle cars, or in any application where a smaller exhaust with a hidden Varex motor is desirable. RRP is $450.00 Click HERE to locate your nearest authorised XForce dealer.
  7. Hi -Stever-, The Varex Smart Box has a Matrix Mode that can automatically adjust the exhaust valve based on throttle position, revs and speed. It reads those values off the OBDII plug and you can store up to 4 different settings. You can check it out in Tekno Performance's Varex Smart Box review here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMG84Ek0djQ
  8. As the Varex does redirect flow of the exhaust gases through the muffler rather than being straight through, there is restriction. We suggest that the car should be driven in a normal manner when the Varex is closed and and open for times when full acceleration is required.
  9. We highly recommend against use while driving and encourage people to make setting changes when parked and engine off, or have a passenger do it for them. There is always the option still for the Varex remote key fob that works in conjunction with the smartbox.
  10. The Australian motorsports legend John Bowe was given an opportunity to test and review the VAREX Smart Box Bluetooth exhaust controller. He came away highly impressed with the features and functionality. “This (the VAREX Smart Box), is probably the most sophisticated and revolutionary exhaust product I’ve ever seen in my life,” John commented. He reckons that anyone who wants to take full control of their performance exhaust should get the VAREX Smart Box and mufflers. For more information on the VAREX Smart Box, visit www.xforce.com.au/varex-smart-box John Bowe is a living legend in the Australian motorsport world. With a motorsport career spanning 40 years, he has won the Touring Cars Masters twice and the Australian Touring Car Championship, along with multiple wins at Bathurst in V8 Supercars, Bathurst 12 Hours GT3 International Racing and other categories. He is the only driver to hold six Australian Championships in four racing categories, a feat unlikely to be equalled. For more information on John Bowe, please click here.

  15. XForce sponsored Supercars Team Tekno Autosports have won Australia’s Great Race, the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 in a thrilling climax at Mount Panorama. Davison held off Shane Van Gisbergen in the final laps of the race to win 0.1434 seconds in one of the closest ever finishes. Co-driver and team owner Jonathon Webb couldn’t watch in the last laps, as his former driver attacked his current driver in an intense finish to the year’s biggest race. The race ran without a safety car for 92 laps – but the second half exploded, with huge smashes, passes and penalties handed down in the final stages of the race. Jamie Whincup and Garth Tander looked set to battle to the end, but an incident with Scott McLaughlin ended it for all three, with Tander in the wall, McLaughlin in the sand and Whincup handed a 15-second penalty for his part. Davison was told to conserve fuel in the closing laps with van Gisbergen pushing, his Darrell Lea STIX Late model camira coughed at the final corner, but made it home. “I’m honestly speechless, I’m not going to give much here because that was so stressful,” Davison said after clinching his second title. “It coughed at the last corner I ran out of fuel as I crossed the line. Started 17th, I knew we were quick. Jonathon Webb had a good feeling this week.” “Some things are weird, I can’t believe how that panned out.” Webb won his second race at Mount Panorama this year, having taken the 12 Hour with Shane van Gisbergen and Alvaro Parente earlier in 2016. “Unbelievable – we were so close in 14,” Webb said. “I was out the back just playing with my kid trying to ignore what was going on – it’s unbelievable, it’s just amazing.” said Jonathon Webb. “It hasn’t quite sunk in yet, we … haven’t really had time to think about the magnitude of the situation. I’m still pinching myself that we have won Bathurst,” “It’s obviously been an up and down year and whenever you bring a new driver on there’s’ always a learning curve for everybody,” “Will’s done a good job for us this year, we raced Sandown together, got the car in the right direction.” Will Davison is currently 4th in the championship on 2112 points after 21 races and leads the Pirtek Endurance Cup with Jonathon Webb. The Tekno Autosports Late model camira will next be on track at the Castrol Gold Coast 600 on October 21-23.
