This includes not only the components in the system, but the Jackson Racing ECU calibration.

The Jackson Racing developed ECU calibration features proprietary tuning developments giving the supercharger system drivability equal to a factory vehicle. No hesitations, no hiccups, no band aids… Just a completely solid car. And on top of all that, the FR-S/BRZ system is CARB legal!

“We knew the FR-S/BRZ platform would be a perfect match with our powerful, fuel efficient, emissions legal supercharger systems. After the 15,000+ miles of drivability and durability testing we have been through with the FR-S/BRZ supercharger system over the past year, it is hard to imagine the car without it,” said Oscar Jackson Sr., President and Chief Engineer of Jackson Racing. “When you buy from Jackson Racing you get over 30 years of experience in building high quality performance products and Championship winning engineering. All our system testing includes long, hard miles on the street as well as racetrack abuse in the hot California desert. It is crucial for us to test and abuse our products beyond even what our customers would. We drive our cars daily just like our customers, so our products must be built to the highest quality standards.”

Oscar Jackson Jr. adds, “Our FR-S/BRZ supercharger system is powerful yet drivable, making this car easy to drive at the racetrack. You can now steer the car with the throttle effortlessly and the power is seamless all the way to redline. The FR-S/BRZ is a great car stock, but once you drive one with the Jackson Racing system you realize this is how it should have come from the factory!”

CR-Z Owner Impressions

“Thanks for providing what Honda CHEATED us on.”

Meet and Greet between two Jackson Racing CR-Z Owners
Meet and Greet between two Jackson Racing CR-Z Owners

Jackson Racing Supercharged CR-Z Owners are really excited about their supercharger systems! Check out what they have been chatting about:

————————
“Overall impression of the car is GREAT! This is how the concept of a hybrid sports car should be. Good gas mileage but very torquey and it pulls like crazy. Lets just say the traction control light come more frequently now. The car always seems to want to go faster…”

“The Jackson Racing supercharger is the best purchase I did besides the car itself. I have complete trust in the quality and the performance of JR supercharger that I had it in my car before my first service light ever went on. This kit makes the CRZ the true sport hybrid that Honda was trying to achieve. I previously owned 95 Civic EX and had the JR Eaton blower installed on my car around 15,000-20,000 miles on my engine. My civic out lasted all of my friends turbos and served as a daily driver that accumulated over 100 miles a day. I sold the car when it had 140,000 and it was still running good. I expect nothing less than the CRZ Rotrex.”
– Ken, CR-Z MT, Northern California

————————
“My CRZ is NOW awesome, if Honda had this on the CRZ stock I can guarantee they wouldn’t be able to keep these cars in stock. Thanks for providing what Honda CHEATED us on.”

“First drive around the block I was in total awe, but when I shifted to the paddles OH MY GOSH. This supercharger on our cars is what Honda needs to beg Jackson to license to them as they have done ALL the hard work. I can guarantee if someone was on the edge about buying this car from the dealer and this is how it came from the factory it would sell itself after a test drive.”

“When I put it in sport mode and floor it its like you get sucked into the seat it and hauls. Cruising on the highway I can get up to 80 plus and not even realize how quick I did. The drive is smooth.”
– Atley, CR-Z CVT, Hawaii

————————
“I’ve been beating on my car HARD on the “Tail of the Dragon” and had absolutely no issues working the car so hard. This SC kit is rock solid!”
“…It’s an amazing kit; once you drive one, you’ll understand!”

– Jesse, CR-Z MT, Florida

————————
“…All the people that I have handed the keys to, they drive it come back with a smile and grin saying ‘wow’ and ‘this is bad ass I want one'”
– Raul, CR-Z CVT, Southern California

————————
“Let’s just say my cheeks are sore from the constant grinning i’m doing!”
“…it feels like a COMPLETELY different car.”

– Ricky, CR-Z CVT, Northern California

Race Review: 2012 Racing Recap

Oscar Jr. piloting the Team CRE Catfish in the early morning hours of the 2012 25 Hours of Thunderhill.

2012 was again a very busy year of racing for the “Jackson’s”. Racing has always been and always will be a part of the DNA here at Jackson Racing. Whether it’s Oscar Sr., Oscar Jr., Landon, or Spencer; one of us or a combination of us are racing to perfect our product and certify that “we race what we sell”.

SCCA Nationals 2012
Oscar Jr. was very busy in 2012 so finding time to get his SCCA National Championship races in to qualify for the SCCA National Championship Runoffs proved to be a challenge. Because of scheduling conflicts Oscar Jr. missed both of the local SCCA National events at Buttonwillow Raceway and California Speedway and had to travel to Portland International Raceway in July and to Miller Motorsports Park in Salt Lake City, Utah in August to get his needed points and races completed.

Oscar Jr. seems to adapt to new tracks pretty quickly and it showed at the July 13-16, 2012 race at PIR by setting a time quick enough for Pole Position in the Super Touring Lites (STL) class and finished the weekend with wins on both days of the Double National event.

Three short weeks later Oscar Jr. was on his way to the lovely Miller Motorsports Park for another SCCA Double National event. Miller Motorsports Park is a World Class facility with excellent garages and a very challenging racecourse layout. When you add the 100ºF temperatures common in August to the challenging layout and 40 other screaming cars all vying for the same piece of tarmac going into the first turn the outcome doesn’t always turn out good. Fortunately for Oscar Jr. he easily navigated his way to the front, and scored two wins and two new track records over the weekend in the tough summer heat. Combined with his double wins at the Portland round, Oscar Jr. was awarded the SCCA Divisional Championship for 2012.

Unfortunately the SCCA decided to demote the fresh STL class to an “Exhibition Class” for 2012 just weeks before the Runoffs, which would make it a Non-National Championship race. We decided it was not a wise decision to make the trek back to Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin to compete in a class that didn’t award the National Championship. Oscar Jr. had a good, if very quick, year of SCCA Racing and came away with the Divisional Championship. Maybe this year he can go all the way and win the big one!

SuperStreet Magazine FF Battle 2012
Each year SuperStreet Magazine invites some of the best tuners of front drive Honda’s to compete in their FF Battle Championship. This year Oscar Jr. was hired by Sportcar Motion to drive their Honda CR-Z with a K20 engine swap. Sportcar Motion did an extremely gorgeous engine swap on the car and it looked like Oscar Jr., the 2011 FF Battle Champion, had a chance to repeat as champion in 2012. Unfortunately some wiring issues kept turning on the VSC (Vehicle Stability Control) in mid-corner and kept the little CRZ from it’s full potential.

AMA Endurocross Series
Like his father, Oscar Jr. is a very good motorcycle racer as well as a great car racer and will jump at any opportunity to race a motorcycle or a car. Enter the new sport of Endurocross and Oscar Jr. was hooked. Endurocross is a motorcycle race held inside sports arenas with huge obstacles like logs, boulders, sand and water crossings. Riders compete on motocross bikes that have been highly modified to be able to conquer these extreme obstacles. Oscar Jr. had a great season learning this new sport on a new machine and is looking forward to competing again in 2013.

Bonneville Salt Flats Land Speed Racing
The third week of August every year is the date for the worlds fastest cars and motorcycles to test their engineering against the laws of physics at the great Bonneville Salt Flats in Wendover, Utah. Jackson Racing was again teamed up with Hondata in an attempt to capture even more World Records just as they have since 2008. But this year things were different. Doug Macmillan of Hondata decided it was time that Oscar Sr. see what two Jackson Racing/Rotrex superchargers on a K20 engine and 800whp felt like at 200+mph. So this year Oscar Sr. climbed into a borrowed Bonneville legal driving suit and went out and drove to 198mph to receive his unlimited Bonneville racing license. The Hondata/Jackson Racing Acura RSX already holds numerous speed records and has gone through the speed traps at over 236mph, but for licensing purposes Oscar Sr. wasn’t allowed to go over 200mph during his license runs. And although any speed over 175mph but less than 200mph would have qualified him for his unlimited license, the racer in him pushed the envelope to reach a speed of 198.84mph! Oscar Sr. proved there is still a lot of Racer left in him and he still wants to race what he sells even if it means driving at 200+ mph!

The NASA 25 Hours of Thunderhill Endurance Race
The 25 Hours of Thunderhill is the longest race in North America, and is now legendary in road racing ranks as among the toughest, most challenging endurance races in the world. It is the greatest challenge to man and machine that you can imagine. Drivers are pushed hard for up to 5 hours at a time; the crew deals with a lack of sleep as they have to be ready for a pit stop at any moment during the entire 25 hours of racing and the Crew Chief has to endure the entire race with no rest whatsoever. In 2011 Oscar Jr. drove and Oscar Sr. was Crew Chief to the rookie team from 949 Racing and brought them a commanding win in their first attempt.

For 2012 Oscar Jr. and Oscar Sr. teamed up with AIM Tires to campaign a brand new “kit car” called the Catfish under the new Team CRE/Jackson Racing/Achilles Tire banner. The Catfish is a tube frame racing chassis with a flowing fiberglass body powered by a stock 1999 Mazda Miata engine, transmission and differential. Although the car only had 140whp it was very light, nimble, went hours on a single tank of fuel. The new Achilles racing tires that were being used for the first time proved unstoppable and provided excellent grip deep into a long driving stint. Because this is a purpose built car and not a production car it was required to run in the Unlimited ESR class against ultra-fast Radicals, LeMan type cars like the Norma, and other exotic racecars. When the checkered flag finally fell, the Team CRE/Jackson Racing/Achilles Tire Catfish CB01-R had finished a very respectable 3rd place in its first outing. For 2013 Team CRE/Jackson Racing/Achilles Tire will be racing the entire WERC Championship and the 2013 25 Hours of Thunderhill. We look forward to another dominant season as we smooth out the rough edges of this great new car and vie for the WERC Championship and a win in the prestigious 25 Hours of Thunderhill.

2013 will be another action packed year for us at the racetrack! Follow along on Facebook and Twitter to receive all the track updates!
