NASA engineering for your ride on earth comes to Springfield, VA
SPRINGFIELD, VA (May 10, 2012): Green MotorSport, owned and operated by NASA mechanical engineer David Green, will celebrate its grand opening from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, June 2, at its new location, 8432 Alban Road, Springfield, VA, in the Alban Business Park. The public is invited.
Green MotorSport’s mission is to provide the best performance products and service at an affordable price. In partnership with FVD Brombacher and IPD, Green MotorSport sells, installs and services performance parts for performance vehicles, as well as providing routine service for family cars and trucks.
Green is still happily employed by NASA after 18 years, but Green MotorSport combines Green’s passion for precision performance – as evidenced by the three patents he earned at NASA – and a lifetime love of earthbound vehicles.
“As soon as you challenge me and tell me I can’t do it, I’m going to do it,” Green said of taking an 800-pound aluminum block and machining it to an 8-pound, one-piece High Gain Antenna for GPM (global precipitation measurement system) for NASA. “All the critics said it would never work, but it far surpassed all requirements.”
Green and his MotorSport team bring that same can-do attitude to Springfield, as evidenced by this post from a customer whose FVD exhaust system was ordered and installed by Green’s team:
“The day I ordered my exhaust it was on back order. :-/ I wasn’t too upset because I waited this long, what's a little longer. But both Rhonda and David kept in touch with me via email and phone calls. Again, I was very satisfied with the service they both provided. Rhonda contacted Germany to see if there was any way they could get the exhaust here as soon as possible. Even with FVD-Germany on a skeleton crew for the holidays they were able to make it happen. :-)” .
After installing the FVD exhaust system, the same customer returned for a set of Green MotorSport headers for his Porsche Cayman. The customer was asked on a forum: “There any noticeable increase in performance?”
“YES! Low end/midrange power and torque! It feels amazing and so responsive. A tap on the accelerator and the car takes off like a rocket. This was the missing piece to the puzzle. What a difference headers make on this car. This is definitely my most enjoyable mod of them all :-)”
Green Motorsport sells, installs, and services performance parts, as well as offering routine service for your performance car and daily driver. Green Motorsport spared no expense to be sure it provides the best service for its customers. In the Springfield location, customers will find Hunter’s Most Advanced Lever-less and No-Touch Tire Changer in the World, the Hunter TCA34W, and the Hunter GSP9700, which is the most sophisticated tire balancer available and offers road force and balance matching to give the smoothest ride available.
To further complete their outstanding capabilities, Green MotorSport offers the Snap-on Visualiner 3D2 alignment. The company purchased the best aligner imaginable to date. Green’s team can accurately align your daily driver or tune your suspension for the racetrack.
The company sells, installs and services parts from FVD Brombacher, IPD Plenum’s, TechArt, BBS, HRE Brembo and more.
Green and his team can also soup up your street vehicle, as Green did when he tuned his Porsche Cayenne Turbo, giving it almost 700 HP. Asked why he needed 700 horses for his personal vehicle, he replied with a smile: “It’s fun.”
Green found Springfield to be more business-friendly than other areas he looked at to locate his business and the Albans Business Park was the perfect fit for Green MotorSport.
“It was exactly what we envisioned,”
On June 2, come see Green MotorSport’s comfortable showroom and envision how Green and his team can modify your vehicle for the best ride on earth.
