FIREBALLED! JOINS JOHN WAYNE CANCER INSTITUTE AND JOY RIDE RALLY CHARITY EVENTS

Torrance, CA. (March 17, 2007) Extreme Tuner, Fireballed! Racing has joined with several high-level charity groups to support Cancer Research and expand Katrina Relief. The John Wayne Cancer Institute, Joy Ride Rally and the Southern California BMW/MINI Dealership headed by General Manager, Peter Boesen have all sought out Fireballed! for it’s design expertise. Headed by CEO Movie Car Designer Fireball Tim Lawrence, the company is supporting the two April events with gusto. The John Wayne Cancer Institute Auxiliary’s Odyssey Ball at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on April 14th, honoring Joyce Green for her passionate commitment and devotion to cancer research, and the Joy Ride Rally, an Exotic Car Rally traversing 2000 miles to New Orleans to support Katrina victims.

“I am not only proud to be associated with this amazing mastermind of people,” explains Fireball Tim, “I am humbled by their efforts to raise awareness for a disease and disaster that has taken far too many.”

South Bay MINI has graciously donated one of Fireball Tim’s extraordinarily designed MINIs to the Odyssey Ball charity event to help raise funds for cancer research. 100% of all proceeds are going to the Institute. The mini is a vehicle that not only will turn heads on the street, but will remind the winner of the importance for which it stands.

"The creativity of Fireball Tim's organization, and the progressive research done at the John Wayne Cancer Institute, is a true union of passion,” says Craig Eisenberg. “We are sure to see a cure for cancer in our generation."

The Joy Ride Rally Car Show will be taking place on the Santa Monica pier, April 21st. An event for more than just the admiration of beautiful machines, it gives $1000K to the Salvation Army for each Rally entrant. Once again, all for Katrina Relief.

The Fireballed! brand is well on it way to establishing itself as a force in Promotional and Design excellence. Supporting many other charities such as The Surfrider Foundation and Plant-It 2020.

FIREBALLED! RACING UNLEASHES THE ULTIMATE MINI

Torrance, CA. (March 12, 2007) Fireballed! Racing revealed their latest project MINI, “The WIDOW” at the LA Auto Show to overwhelmed and shocked crowds. It is currently the World’s Most Powerful Street MINI, …period. Using products that were developed and tested through their race program, Fireballed designed a complete line of components and wild conversion kits that will be introduced this year. Combining Movie Car Designer (And host of CarTV.com) Fireball Tim’s concepts and Sport Compact Genius Hubie Fuh’s performance, The WIDOW is their vision of the ultimate MINI, thus achieving the concept of the “TOTAL TUNE.” “

“Our innovative products compliment each other and integrate seamlessly with the factory designed components, enhancing the driving experience,” says Fireballed! Executive VP Hubie Fuh.

The FIREBALLED! MAD MOD V Turbo Conversion Kit is the centerpiece of this insanely modified MINI and is capable of producing almost 500HP out of the original 1.6L engine. Stuffed with custom FIREBALLED! designed JE Pistons, ARP hardware, and topped with their CNC Stage 2 Race Head, the engine has proven to be unbelievably strong.

“Working with EXEDY Racing, we helped develop the current HYPER SINGLE Clutch and Flywheel assembly which handles all the abuse, while maintaining exceptional driveability,” comments Brian White, head of Operations. “The Quaiffe ATB Differential allows us to put the power down evenly.”

The custom designed stainless steel tubular manifold feeds the exhaust gases to the Garrett GT3071 ball bearing turbo. Boost is perfectly controlled via the TurboSmart eBOOST2 and low charge air temperatures are maintained with the custom FIREBALLED! MAD MOD Liquid to Air Barrel Intercooler. Custom return type fuel system featuring dual in-tank fuel pumps and boost dependent fuel pressure regulator insure that the upgraded fuel rail and 550cc RC Engineering Injectors have plenty of fuel on tap. Fuel management developed in conjunction with MYNES PERFORMANCE allows them to enjoy the full spectrum of performance from cruising around town with 350HP at 17PSI or racing with 500HP at 30+ PSI. Balance of power, braking, and handling is often overlooked, but not in this ridiculous “MEGA” MINI. Selecting components from Bilstein, HOTCHKIS Performance, M7, Power Flex, and IRELAND Engineering, the balance is maintained as all three areas work in harmony.

The interior treatments complement the custom black with red stitching on the JCW leather dash and console down tubes. RECARO TrendLine Seats provide much needed support and the four-point roll cage protects and adds support to the already stiff chassis. A plethora of electronics are needed to operate and monitor this beast. DEFI electronic boost, pressure, and temperature gauges relay vital engine data. Innovate wide band A/F gauges helps us maintain proper tuning via APEXi AFC Select, and the MSD DIS-2 Ignition provides the powerful spark necessary to light the mixture. When not in racing mode, the Pioneer AVIC-N1 and Infinity components provide a different level of entertainment.

The clean and “business like” theme flows along the exterior treatment as well. ARMAR Custom BodyWorks was responsible for blacking out the headlights, tail lights, and various chrome components as well as shaving the front and rear wipers and all unnecessary openings in the engine bay. AXIS Widetrack wheels with ridiculous 90MM polished lips give the MINI a muscular stance envisioned for Fireball Tim’s LUX Theme. Painted Aero Sideskirts, fender flares, cowl vents, and a carbon fiber front splitter complement the lines of the MINI. A virtually impossible to find JCW GP carbon fiber wing extends the body lines and provides much needed aerodynamic support.

Innovative design combined with outrageous performance clearly defines this latest project from FIREBALLED! RACING.
