The STR 905 is the latest addition to STR’s Track Series wheel lineup. STR uses flow forming to produce a strong, lightweight wheel at a reasonable cost. This specialized process begins with a low-pressure type of casting and uses a special machine that spins the initial casting, heats the outer portion of the casting and then uses steel rollers pressed against the rim area to pull the rim to its final width and shape. The combination of the heat, pressure and spinning create a rim area with the strength similar to a forged wheel without the high cost of the…

The Petersen Automotive Museum’s latest exhibit, celebrating 70 years of Ferrari, had me reflecting back on my childhood. As a child, I fell immediately in love with cars. As I grew up I drew pictures of cars all the time (apparently on the walls too, as my mother told me on many occasions). One thing was a given, I always reached for my red crayon when I started drawing. Even at five years old, red seemed like the correct color to render an automobile with. Red looked fast! My red crayon was always the first crayon to get completely worn…
