Status Racing and Proper Garage Join Forces

Proper Garage and Status Racing started from a similar idea, give people a unique product that is a cut above the rest. For Proper Garage, they offer exceptional coverage of garage lifestyle. Their unique experiences have lead them to document all forms of culture which, “Transcend from their initial roots.” Status spawned from the idea that people want quality products, that represent who they are as an individual. With both Proper and Status aiming to offer a unique experience for visitors and customers, it would only make sense that we collaborate.

Through our relationship, we’ve setup a ton of super custom cars, with drop-dead sexy custom racing seats. This is customer rocks a 2009 Lexus IS 250, equipped with a LMS Supercharger kit (1 of 5 ever made), Ksport Air Suspension with accuair e-level management, as well as a sexy set of wheels and carbon additions; like a full carbon hood. To match the rare, exclusive natural of the car’s exterior, he teamed up with us to get a set of Red leather and Black diamond stitched, ultra suede Status Racing seats. What’s a set of racing seats without the harnesses? These all Black, FIA approved, Status Harnesses help to finish the look.

Status Gets some Local Love

This is a local Arizona boy who’s into the bimmer scene and wanted more! So he updated his e36 with a set of Status Racing GT-X seats with black cloth. Now, he’s not only catchin’ looks for the outside, but the inside too. His BBS’s are nice, but every BMW in the scene has a set of wheels. Not everyone has a bad ass set of racing seats.  The GT-X is our latest seat back to get FIA approved, for those of us who use our car as a daily and like to race on the weekends. The GT-X has enough room to be comfortable, but fits snug when you need the extra security.

Let us know what you think of his setup in the comment section below or on Facebook, Twitter @thestatusracing or Instagram. Thinking about getting your own setup? Check out our seat configurator and make your own set of Icons or find out where to buy HERE.

“One of the most important pieces safety equipment for your car is a racing harness. Status Racing brings the same top quality design to these harnesses as they do their seats. Available are 4 point, 5point, and 6 point harness kits. The harness kits are 3 inch belts, on both the lap, and shoulders. The 5th or 6th point sub belt is 2 inch. The shoulder belts are long enough to extend to the rear seats of sedans or can be wrapped around a roll cage harness bar. A very easy to use Cam Lock design allows for quick disconnect of the belts. This CNC machined aluminum part features an engraved Status Racing logo while the shoulder belts have a rubberized pad with the Status name in them as well. All Status Racing harnesses are a clip in design that allows you to easily install and remove the belts. Each Status Racing Harness includes the necessary eye bolts for a quick installation. The Status Racing 5 and 6 point Harnesses are FIA approved so you can ensure you are equipping your vehicle with proper safety equipment. Harness kits are sold per seat.”

When did it all begin?

6TWO1 was just a personal blog for creator Adam Ivell, used to document not just his passion for Car’s but his trips abroad, this in late 2010 become mainly used for just car content & 2011 saw the rise in popularity through out the Honda world that he has been a part of from a young age. The site has grown in popularity seeing thousands of unique visitors every few days from all over the world.

Where did the name come from?

The name 6TWO1 comes once again from Creator Adam Ivell’s personal background. His father purchased him a private plate when he was very young to attach to his first car upon turning 17. The plate read AJI 621. When the blog first started it was under a different guise of INITFORTHESTATUS. After feeling this was to much of a mouthful to pronounce and get everyone to visit, it was changed and 6TWO1 was born. The number changing to a word was due to some art guy owning 621.com before I could get my hands on it.

How can we buy from you and trust your service?

Before 6TWO1 started being an online parts store. I built my own webstores off the back of the family business of office furniture. Still running to this day in the same office as www.flatpackoffice.co.uk & www.flatpackoffice.com. I pride myself on giving 100% in sales as I know people work long and hard for their money and when you purchase items you expect the best service & value for money. Trust me when I say I know this, as I build cars too! So I know the pain and suffering of bad service & how it can affect the build!

 

 

Blue Carbon Available for Purchase TODAY!

We are finally ready to release the blue carbon seats on the world. As we’ve said in the past, we’ve been at work this year. 2013 has been a year of new products for us. We have had the honeycomb carbon, the red carbon, and now blue carbon. Along with the various color of carbons we got out GT-X seat FIA approved. All these changes are based on feedback we’ve gotten through our social media and customer feedback. So just know your suggestions don’t fall on deaf ears. You can also look forward to some other new products to debut in November at a certain car show, but we’ve already said too much, back to the blue carbon.

The blue weave gives it a navy blue look. Same with the red carbon, the seat can look like different colors depending on the lighting. With no light (as you will see in the picture below) it looks like navy blue. Then when you put the back directly in the light the blue comes to life. The blue is so vibrant it’s hard to take your eyes off of it. Here are pictures of the first blue carbon backed seats to be produced. We will be doing a follow up in the future with more pictures once we get the seat in the shop.

What do you think of the blue carbon? What car would you like to see it in? What fabric would you put with it? So many questions, we want to know what you think! Tell us in the comment section below or on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Red Carbon Pictures Released

The moment most of you have been waiting for. The final pictures of the red carbon seats. When the hexagonal carbon came out, we thought that would be our favorite new carbon backing. It looked so aggressive, unique and could add a personal touch to the interior of any car. Even when we saw the preliminary pictures of the red carbon, we weren’t as excited as when we got the initial hexagonal pictures. It wasn’t until we saw them in person and completely finished that these things blew our mind. The variation in colors that this backing offers is crazy. We tried to communicate the color differences in the pictures below. To say the least, they are by far, the sickest carbon we have available now. If you’re on the fence about buying them, just know, the pictures don’t do this backing justice.

Obviously not everyone has our opinion, the second that we sent pictures to our dealers the first pair was gone. The buyer didn’t need the pictures from the final photo shoot to make their decision. We can’t wait to see the blue carbon in person. Sky’s the limit! We have been asking on Facebook and Instagram what color of carbon people would like to see. From all the suggestions we like the idea of a white carbon the best. What color carbon would you want if we could offer it? Let us know in the comment section below or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

Below is a culmination of the pictures we have received from the beginning of the red carbon to present. Enjoy!
