Made my second stop at Nate Hamilton’s shop and as you can see, the engine made it in and was being worked on during my visit. Nate is using a LS7 built by LG Motorsport – a bigger motor than what he ran last year. It’s basically a LS7 head with a LS3 block. LG Motorsport will tune the car as well. This year, Nate picked up Holley as a sponsor so will be using Holley throttle body, fuel rails, etc.
The inside chassis has come a long way from our last visit – seats are in, EFI, oil setup, Stack Dash Display System, among other things.

“It is quite an honor to be working with Enkei Wheels. Both Bergenholtz Racing and Enkei Wheels have been known for performance and racing. It is a perfect partnership. We are extremely excited to be working with a great company.”
-Ron Bergenholtz Team Manager of Bergenholtz Racing.
The ENKEI PF01 is the newest addition to Enkei’s Racing Series line of wheels. With its light weight, the PF01 is the hottest racing wheel for 2010. Made with Enkei’s MAT technology, the PF01 is a light, racer friendly wheel. Sized from 15” to 18”, with plenty of clearance for large brake calipers. The new Enkei PF01 is a high quality, very lightweight wheel offered at a competitive price.
“Enkei wheels are engineered to the highest degree to deliver the best in performance. Simply mounting up the PF01’s to the NITTO NT05’s will increase the agility and acceleration of the Mazda RX8 immediately. It’s like having horsepower and and a suspension upgrade built into a wheel! I can’t wait to try them on track. The Mazda RX8 is going to do some amazing things with the Enkei PF01’s.”
-Joon Maeng pilot of the Bergenholtz Racing/Nitto Mazda RX8.
