I never really knew about these guys, but looks like they make a lot of hardcore applications for our engine. Anyone with 335i or has been lurking on the e90 forums heard about them before?

Hrmm apparently they developed there own kits: brakes, suspension, wheels(even thoe they use HRE's in the pic) etc. Im very curious if they have a '442'hp shop car. Also what the specs are on their 'sport turbo'

edit: i guess they aren't HRE's

I used to work at a speed shop in '95 (Motorsport Designs, S.A., TX)and we used to move a lot of RD rims and exhausts. They were Italian if I remember and distributed through Electrodyne in the US. They were BMW specific but had an all makes brand called Freedom Design I think. Back then the rims were absolutely top notch. Exhausts were better looking than effective. They did have entire vehicle conversion programs but we never got that far into it, just rims, intakes, chips and exhausts. All the Racing Dynamics products back then were excellent and PRICEY!

Racing Dynamics(the real one) is a very well respected engineering firm that produces high quality racing and aftermarket items for Porsche BMW and others.

About 10 years ago they made a contract with a firm here in the states to distribute Racing Dynamics part in US. Unknowing, Racing Dynamics also gave the US Reseller, the US trademark on the name.

The US firm started producing cheap imports Rims, shifters, exhaust of the same design as the originals from Racing Dynamics.

or something like that....

Racing Dynamics is a very well respected company. They make some sick wheels among other items.

I used to love the RGP, RGR and RGS lines of rims they had in the early 90's.
