Recoil, the Ring Brothers, SEMA- Oh MY!
By Nicole James
Just when I think I have seen it all, SEMA surprises me again. This year at the 2014 SEMA show the Ring Brothers, Mike and Jim, have decided to unveil a 980 horsepower Chevelle that they have affectionately named Recoil.
It’s a supercharged, fuel-injected Wegner Mostorsports LS7 V8 that guzzles down that 91-octane pump gas accompanied by a Dynotech driveshaft, flowmaster mufflers, and nine-inch Ford rear end, along with a lovely Tremec T56 transmission reinforced by Bowler. HRE wheels add a touch of style to the Recoil.
This track-oriented Recoil is dripping in beautiful Sand Storm paint while exposed carbon fiber give the illusion of racing stripes on the hood. The cockpit is fit for a minimalist. I mean, who ever said racecars need to be comfortable? There is light padding on exposed seat frames and a racepak gauge system to complete the look.
