Let's debate the merits of a Lotus Exige rally car.





Versus a 911

Well, the Exige is fuckin' tiny; I have to fall-into the driver-seat ass-first whilst scraping my helmet on the ceiling and my two feet could cover nearly four-an-a-half pedals, with my left-elbow sitting in the co-driver's lap....



(and that's WITHOUT a cage or halo-seat!)



Other than that - I'd love to own one.

Is the Exige the 1.8 supercharged version?

I have a supercharged Elise as my daily driver. I could see it being pretty awesome on tarmac rallies, but wayyyy too fragile even for that while going flat out. Very short suspension travel and "weak" components. Amazing autocross and trackday machine, but to handle the rigors of rally? 911 all day long.

BRAID WHEELS STOCK ORDER OPPORTUNITY.

As you may know BRAID USA drop ships most of our special orders direct to the customer in 2-3 weeks. This allows us to supply wheels to your exact specifications in a very short period of time. However, if you have a long lead time we occasionally open up a stock order to special orders thus saving you the drop ship charges from Europe.

Right now we have an open stock order that still has some room on it so this is an opportunity for you to save a little money and get the exact wheel you want.

There are some new wheels available this year too so have a look at www.braidusa.com and let us or one of our dealers know what you are looking for as soon as possible. Stock order closes February 7th for an expected arrival in early April, just in time for spring.

Always moving forward BRAID, manufacturers of the last wheels you’ll ever need continues to roll out it’s range of full flowcast wheels known as the Fullrace Range. These competition and performance oriented wheels have already found countless homes on serious cars in the limited sizes and styles initially offered but over the last few months the range has ballooned to include smaller sizes as well as specialized wheels for off road, rally and race track. All these exciting developments including prices, weights and available specifications can be found at BRAID USA but here is a brief summary of the latest additions:

Fullrace T Acropolis - NEW 15x7 version


Fullrace A - NEW 16x7 version


Fullrace A Safari is now called Fullrace A Rallycross


NEW Fullrace TA - for track and light rally


NEW Fullrace TR - high offset, high clearance gravel rally wheel


NEW Fullrace R - high offset, high clearance tarmac rally and track wheel


NEW Fullrace Maxlight - lightweight 15" track wheel


We are stocking some of the more popular fitments but, as always, anything from the range can be made to your specifications and dropped shipped to you or your customer in 2-4 weeks.
Of course, all this innovation comes at the expense of the old Winrace range which is now reduced to few offerings represented here: BRAID USA although the factory will continue to stock a few of the more popular versions in blank form for those needing replacements.

Have a look over the new wheels and if you have any questions we are just a phone call or an email away.

Stay tuned for more exciting new offerings throughout the coming months.

Time for some customer pics:

First up is this amazing gravel spec GT3 from Finland. We can't wait to see it run. Wonder what brakes they used under those !5" Fullrace wheels.







Check out this MGB with BRAID Fullrace TR wheels. No he's not going rallying, just liked the look. So do we.




A stunning 911T with RS rear flares and BRAID BZ wheels.




Did you know we offer lightweight machining on most of our wheels?



and custom paint?
