Forged Performance is pleased to announce our major commitment to the worldwide Nissan GT-R community by signing with the largest R35 GT-R specific online forum as an International Premier Vendor. You can read more about the program, as written by Davin, the founder of Nagtroc/GT-R Life
Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Forged Performance has been involved with aftermarket tuning on Nissan platforms for nearly a decade. While first starting with a 5,000 sq ft. facility, 2 employees, and a focus on the 350Z, their success has seen them grow into a 12,000 sq ft.+ base of operation housing 12 employees and a company fully committed to supporting Nissan’s premier performance platform, the GT-R.Having acquired their first GT-R in 2008, Forged Performance conducts in house tuning, R&D and Motorsport development. This is something that I’ve seen first-hand, on both the east coast and west coast of the US, where Forged Performance has consistently been at the forefront of fielding and supporting GT-Rs since the very beginning, participating in everything from enthusiasts’ driver education events to competitive time trials.
Forged Performance prides itself on being the go-to destination for all things GT-R and on being at the leading edge of many platform development strategies that have since become industry standards. Partnering with key manufacturers such as Alcon, Dodson, Cobb Tuning, and JRZ Suspension, they’ve elevated the level of performance attainable with the GT-R on the street and on the track. This has come in large part from their experience and success while competing at events such as Redline Time Attack (2008, 2009, 2010) and NASA TT (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012) where they’ve consistently placed on podium and saw a number of wins at both, as well as TX2K where they’ve been two time winners, and more.
Forged Performance remains owned and managed by its founder, Sharif Abdelbaset, who not only manages the day-to-day operations of the company but also performs R&D testing, supports the continuing education of enthusiasts as a Certified Driving instructor for many organizations, and personally tunes every GT-R that passes through Forged’s doors.
This is the passion that Sharif and his staff of over a dozen bring to GT-R owners, through everything from in-house builds and support to an online store with extensive GT-R specific offerings, to in house transmission and engine builds. This is the passion that Forged Performance is bringing to the GT-R Life community and the future of the GT-R. It’s great to welcome them as an International Premier Vendor.
From Sharif at Forged:
“What sets Forged apart is our laser focus and obsessive attention to detail, coupled with a team of true motorsport and Nissan enthusiasts that are motivated by making the GT-R the fastest and most reliable platform around. Building and tuning high performance GT-R’s for the race track gives us a unique perspective on safety, quality, and performance that cannot be measured on public roads. Bottom line, we know how to make GT-R’s go faster around a racetrack while still being entirely civilized and reliable. At the end of the day, Nagtroc and its community of authentic GT-R enthusiasts is what motivates us to continue raising the bar. We’ve been a part of many online forums over the years, and without a doubt NAGTROC continues to set the gold standard of professionalism, objectivity, and a community of friendly and welcoming members. Diverse opinions and good, fair competition elevates all of us and we are honored to be a part of it”
