Ray's Engineering Video, Amazing stuff...

(Don't know if it's been posted/if anyone has seen it before)

I was checking out the Gram Lights website, and stumbled upon the video section of the site...

You can watch clips of how they make their wheels, and what JWL+R means. And why they do some of the things they do. I was just completely fascinated with the entire video. One funny part, they list the things they do for testing the wheels from impact tests to pressure tests, they also test the wheel coating in like ten different ways, one of them was "flying stones" which I thought was funny. I always knew that Rays made good products, but wasn't really sure why I saw them everywhere.... well, this video really shows how good their wheels are; made me just want to buy Rays wheels and nothing else....crazy! Anyways, here's a direct link to the WMV file:

And here's the page itself:

Re: Ray's Engineering Video, Amazing stuff...

I liked where they test the force impact on the side of the rim- where rays stands up, aluminum cracked. Also their technology as far as the forging goes is pretty cool.
