delivery delay for our standard product line

Dear customers & partners,

due to the current demand situation combined with our high workload in the field of bespoke small series applications these days, we currently face a delivery shortage for our LITE↯BLOX standard product line (foremost LB20XX / LB28XX).

We ask for your understanding and will ship existing orders latest in KW40 – for all new orders the delivery time is currently around 3 weeks.

 

Porsche 991: Saving weight by substituting the battery

The combination of our LB28XX model plus matching lightweight adapter plate enables a plug’n’play replacement for the heavy standard components, saving some serious weight in all 99X & 9X1 Porsche vehicles:

  • Porsche GT2, GT3, RS –> ca. 19kg
  • Porsche Carrera, Turbo, S  –> ca. 22kg

Our longtime partner Laptime Performance has taken a closer look at the example of a current Porsche 991.2 (991 MK2) GT3 with relevant weight-saving potential and explains why a replacement of the original starter battery is accompanied by a noticeable improvement in driving characteristics (especially for the water-cooled Porsche models)…

At Reisbrennen JDM Meeting with TurboZentrum

The “Reisbrennen” is Europe’s No. 1 import meeting for Japanese vehicles, tuning & racing enthusiasts and fans of the import scene.

After the debut as official sponsor in 2015, we will be represented locally this year by our partner TurboZentrum, exhibiting the entire LITE↯BLOX product range on-site and will gladly answer any questions about our smart, light car battery at any time:

The BMW E36 325i “Ultimate Sleeper” tracktool

“plan was to have a good running car, but not in the M3 look as most people do”

The <1200kg BMW 325i stroker – powered by LITE↯BLOX LBtrack battery

If Jan does not work on his tracktool, he earns his bun as a developer in the automotive industry and also works as a personal driving coach for racetrack and driving safety.

The E36 was bought as 325i in the standard spec without M-package out of 3rd hand and checkbook maintained.

The plan was to have a cheap club sport conversion to have fun on the racetrack. But also motivated by his job as an instructor it was already obvious in the first conversion phase, that it will go a bit more into detail…

Today, Jan drives one of the fastest E36 325i on the Nordschleife and apart from a handful of components nothing seems to be stock anymore:

To save weight, everything was removed and a fiberglass dashboard was used plus reasonable seats, straps and a roll cage for saftey issues.

On the engine Jan has given the engine builder Oliver Sturm Concept complete confidence to built a 2.5L stroker, delivering an appropriate power output.

Of course, the chassis component also had to be adapted to the overall concept. This is where Carl Schwarz from Custom Racetec put his hands. Thus, everything is now stored in Uniball, the body has been adapted in the rear of the fenders to the 235/45 DIREZZA tires on 9×17 MOTEC wheels. In addition, a KW Clubsport suspension has been adapted with minor changes in spring rates.

To fuel the overall concept of the “E36 325i Sleeper” saving more kilos, Jan relies on our brand new LITE↯BLOX LBtrack (2.3kg) battery model with matching adapter plate, saving around 9 additional kilos onto the previously used lightweight lead-acid battery, while providing even more cranking power:
