After a lot of planning and coordinating Eddies (@Majestik_Unicorn) fully rebuilt Nissan GTR is now done and unveiled at The Sema Show. Every body panel has been replaced with a true molded widebody design by Kreme Developments, Brand new wrap with the help from Colorbomb Arizona, New wheels from Rohana Wheels, Brand new R888s from Toyo. This beautiful beast stole the show this year at the Rohana booth, stopping everyone in their tracks to walk around the car and take photos. This car has one huge transformation.
With it only being my second time at SEMA, the show can be daunting in more ways than one. With my nerves calm and my head cooled this time around, the show can still be overwhelming. The venue is large and the builds even more so. There really is something for everyone here. Whether it’s large obnoxious trucks, derelict hot rods, glass-flared supercars, or smooth muscle cars the car in the next booth will always be bigger and badder. The detail in some of the builds features are the result of thousands of man hours and one off parts, and quite frankly it’s all a little too much at times. So how does one find grounding in such a sky-high atmosphere? Well… As they say, the devil is in the details.
As you’ve seen from coverage in the past, the SEMA Show is a beast of an event! The week long event that goes from October 31st through November 4th happens in the heart of Las Vegas in its very own Las Vegas Convention center.
SEMA is known to feature some pretty radical products from various vendors over the years; it’s the place everyone comes to showcase anything new and interesting in the automotive world. While there are literal miles upon miles of products and tech, few things seldom change the game so to speak, but Accuair came strong this game with a potential game-changing product. Enough that SEMA awarded it Best Engineered New Product for 2017.
In collaboration between Accuair and WABCO a new product called the ENDO-CVT is introduced. CVT, or Compressor, Valve, Tank is a totally self-contained unit marketed for any automotive application using an air compressor. If your car has air rid, then this is a big deal. Not only is the self-contained unit compact, but is also claimed as the quietest, most efficient, and moisture free air compressor that the market has ever seen. Accuair claim this compressor does the work of two industry standard [...]
For a while now, fundamental turbo design has been pretty stagnant. To get more power you need a larger turbo, which in turn creates unwanted turbo lag. A larger turbo means larger piping is required… So on and so forth. Well… Turbo By Garret has dropped a BRAND new turbo design where less is more. Allow me to introduce you to the Garrett New G Series!
The 2017 Southwest Drift Series comes to an end as this weekend, 21 drivers made their way to Musselman Honda Circuit in Tucson, AZ for the last round of the Vegas Drift Southwest Drift series presented by Vegas Drift. Most of the drivers were local who made the short two-hour drive from Phoenix to compete, as others were from neighboring states such as California, Nevada, and Colorado. The weather was mild for a typical Arizona summer day, but with cloud cover and a slight breeze, it was no problem being outside enjoying some pro-am drifting. This night was also the night that the 2017 series champion would be crowned, with the top 3 drivers earning their Formula Drift Pro 2 license.
