Another year of the premier trade event in the aftermarket automotive industry is in the books! SEMA Show 2012 was once again the platform of debut for many new products headed our way next year.
You might be wondering what new products caught our attention? A couple of our sponsors, Soundstream and PrecisionPower, both released new car audio products we’re excited to be running next show season. You can check out their websites for more info on their latest model-specific products and many more innovations.
We were proud to see our friends at Accelerated Performance‘s World Record holding Subaru BRZ featured in the Exedy booth this year. Here is a video of their beast making a record 1/4 run.
Pretty rowdy, don’t you think?
In addition to our other great automotive sponsors, including Auto Meter, AEM and DEI, Echelon Autosports were also in attendance! You can check out coverage from the show on the Echelon Facebook page. Make sure to give them a “Like” while you’re over there so you can follow along with the great projects they have going on out in Arizona.

We had a couple of the guys from the club head to Accelerated Performance to see how much “GO” they have with their show! Unfortunately it was 107 degrees inside the building where the dyno was, so it robbed a few ponies, but it was a blast! A big thank you goes out to Accelerated Performance for us to use the dyno for the day! Please check them out for rates or information on the shop.
This event offers participants an experience surely unlike any other test drive they’ve ever taken part in. An autocross style course was setup with strategically placed electronic targets which drivers had to drive over in order to gain points. To top it off, in-car cameras, G-force tracking and lap time recording added to the fun and competitiveness of the experience.
Drivers could get behind the wheel of various models of the Ford Focus, in both sedan and 5-door form. Each one provided for a different experience and perspective while navigating through the course.
We had a blast throwing the Focus through this course and hope Ford continues to do such events in the future! CYL will be the first ones in line, even if the in-car cameras captured one or two terrified looks on our face!
