Currently there is a gap between performance parts manufacturers and the consumer on the internet. Automotive forums have emerged as powerful social networks that sometimes contain useful advice about tuning including some reviews of popular performance parts, but the information on these forums is often inaccurate or incomplete. But because consumers are generally skeptical of the performance gains claimed on manufacturer websites, there is a need for an independent source of professional tuning advice and performance part testing.
It is this online niche that Tune2Win fills, by connecting with real automotive enthusiasts who like to modify and tune their cars for improved performance by providing them with the best possible information about the performance parts available for their vehicles. By testing and evaluating performance parts and performance-oriented vehicles using the most scientific methodologies available and presenting results in a clear, concise and unbiased fashion, Tune2Win will provide a valuable service to potential consumers looking to buy a new or used car or modify their existing vehicles for improved performance (with respect to power output, handling, braking, aerodynamic efficiency and fuel economy). By testing performance products of all types, our readers will be better able to make an educated purchase, saving themselves time by skipping the painful automotive forum searches for reliable information and maximizing their performance/dollar ratio in the process.
But Tune2Win isn’t just about performance part testing – we’re racers and will sometimes report on our racing activities or general motoring antics both for pure entertainment value and as a way of proving that we put the performance parts we use on our own cars to the ultimate test on a regular basis. And with racing comes a lot of wrenching, so we’ll also offer up a whole host of DIY tech stories, from basic to advanced, that we hope will help you while building and maintaining your street cars or race cars.
