SEMA Show 2014: Jayson’s Pick(s)

SEMA20141

Las Vegas becomes the mecca of automotive geniuses and visionaries every time SEMA (Specialty Equipment Manufacturer’s Association) event is in town.  Fortunate enough to attend this year’s event to feast my eyes on creations that I know were done with extensive planning, hardwork and good partnerships.  This year I was able to witness a good variety of vehicles that impressed me due to its craftsmanship and details – creations that conformed to my liking.  So let’s start…

SEMA20140

#Brotherlylove.  Tjin Edition Ford Fiesta ST and Honda Fit

It’s one thing to work with friends on car builds but to make it a family affair is another.  I can just imagine how the brothers bounced ideas at one another -as crazy as these guys are; they probably used, and abused Denny (@dayuumDen) as a cushion to exert their brotherly frustrations.  But in the end, both vehicles were highly recognized by Ford and Honda for an outstanding vision.

#NotaRocketBunny. The internet breakers Noel’s Varis FRS and Yogi’s widebody GS

These Asiatic Red Devils just killed it… Nope Kim K didn’t break the internet first… Do you remember when this FRS flooded the facebook and IG feeds? When Noel first broke out the FRS with the Airrex suspension? How about the time when he revealed his Rocket Bunny with the Work VS-KF wheels  and lastly showing off with the full Varis Kit and SSR’s newest wheel, the Professor TF1.  Simple but tasteful details can be noticed not only in the exterior but under the FRS’ hood and interior as well.  I am sure brother Bert had his share of scrapes and bruises working on this FRS.

RedDevils2

Well Yogi broke the internet a few days before his GS showed up in SEMA.  After months of non-stop preparation and work to complete the GS with the help from Buddha Paint, Weds, Falken and Airrex, and many more; the handcrafted widebody sedan stole the spotlight the day it was revealed.

#TheRocketBunny.  Lexus RB RC350 Fsport, SSA x AutoFashion RB NSX, RB RX7, RB R35 and RB Genesis Coupe

One build that I really wanted to see in person was the Lexus RB RC350 Fsport.  I have not driven one yet but I read a number of good reviews about the vehicle most specially the RC-F.  For me, it was like a luxury FRS on steroids. Or maybe I am just a little Lexus biased but seeing the first renderings of the RC with the RB kit, just made me want to see one in person. The RB kit enhanced the already aggressive look of the RC.  Meaty tires, mesh wheels, perfect stance, the RC will definitely be a hit once it reaches the dealerships.

Six Sigma AUTOdesign said it best, “We knew many aspects of the project would be controversial, but we wanted to stir the pot. In the end, modifying cars is like an art, what’s the point if we are all painting the same picture? Don’t be afraid to take risks! We love how the car turned out…” Kudos to you guys for taking that leap -out of the norm.

#Fanboyfavs.  Falken IND M3, Artisan NX200t, Ironman4x4 LC60, Vossen LS460, Vorsteiner M4, Sarto Racing CLK and the Hotchkis Road Runner

This IND-Distribution (based from Chicago, Il)  M3 under the Falken booth was simply stunning – no widebody add-ons but simply utilizing the usual aero enhancements that screams Form and Function. But what really drew me to this vehicle was the color scheme which may be too bold for some. The BMW Yas Marina Blue, cement gray and mint green highlights worked great for this build.

Fanboy7

Fanboy5

The very first Lexus NX200t that was fitted with an Artisan kit.  I didn’t imagine that the NX would look so good with just the kit, wheels and low ride height.  The NX series maybe the vehicle that puts the RX series out of the Lexus lineup – only time will tell…

Fanboy2

I have always been a big fan of Ironman 4×4 products.  This year they used an LC60 VX Diesel Turbo to display the quality of accessories, gear and parts they offer. I would not mind taking this LC out on a trailing trip…

Fanboy9

The big body sedan LS460 has always been in my “want” list and this long sled from Vossen was tastefully done.  The elegance of the LS460 Fsport was maintained with the addition of the Skipper front lip and air suspension.

Fanboy10

BMW Widebody M3 suited up with Vorsteiner aero.

Fanboy1

Sarto Racing CLK

Fanboy4

Who would not want to own an American Muscle if it looked this good? This Plymouth Road Runner Superbird was under the Hotchkis booth.

Fanboy3

In addition to the vehicles mentioned above , this year I’ve decided to deviate from my typical wheelhouse and highlight trucks for my SEMA 2014 picks.  From the plethora of new Jeep Rubicons and Wranglers around most of the halls, I found a few that really caught my eye.  I could not pick just one so here it goes…

#myhottruckpicks

3.  The Legacy Classic Trucks: Scrambler and 1942-1943 Dodge WC-53 conversion

These Legacy Classic conversions gives you the old classic feel with new reliable hardware.  The Legacy Classic Trucks are assembled to a customers liking – in terms of its looks and application that it will be used.

2.  Vortech BOSS F100

One of Vortech Superchargers’ booth vehicles is this 1973 Ford F100 done by High Octane Hot Rods. Owner: Jason Jones, On the Ground Designs. This truck is seriously looking like a Boss sitting still and laying frame. Under the hood you will find a 5.0L Ford Coyote engine, BOSS intake and Vortech Supercharger. Hard to find pieces and details were sourced from LMC trucks. One will not miss the massive tubs of the truck which tucks the B-Forged 595 wheels 22×9 up front and 24×14 rear. These are wrapped with Pirelli P-Zero Nero tires 265/30/22 for the fronts and super wide 405/25/24 for the rear. Sew it Seams from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania completed the truck’s interior. Audi RS4 Red Volker was used to complete the exterior looks of the BOSS.

1.  1949 Chevrolet 3100 five window pickup

Under the bright lights of the Las Vegas Convention Center, showing with the PAC racing springs booth tucks a truck that really caught my eye, this is the 1949 Chevy 3100 five window pickup. At first, its rusted out exterior will throw you off as this seem to not belong with the big boys with their shiny paint schemes. But look under the hood and you will immediately know that this beast will blow your doors off standing still. The 3100 is equipped with a fully built 442 LS engine with a 4.125 Bore and Stroke using K1 Technologies Forged Crank and Wiseco Pistons. This also has a Trick Flow Fully CNC LS3 Heads with OE LS7 rockers and titanium retainers from PAC Racing Springs. All ARP hardware was also used in putting together the powerplant of the truck. The 442 was also partnered to a Tremec 6-speed transmission with Centerforce DYAD dual disk clutch. As for its low slung ride height, PAC-JRi Racing coilovers were used. The Red Steel wheels from Coker Tire really did set off the look of the truck – wrapped in Firestone Nostalgia Drag Slicks Wide White. Although it cannot be seen behind the wheel, stopping on a dime is achieved using Wilwood Six Piston Calipers with 12 inch rotors. One of the eye catching details of the truck was the TIG Welded Butler built “Bomber Seats” with custom leather enhancements. I also liked the squared tubing interior styling as well as the bad ass grenade shift knob. The rear end of the truck just shows off the old and new pieces that really set this truck apart from the others.  Eighteen glorious months is what it took to put this beast together, this 3100 deserves a spotlight under the bright lights of Las Vegas.

SEMA Show 2013 – The Ladies of Sema

sema2013-0192

We all know SEMA is one of the biggest gathering of everything about automotive and this year marks another impact in the automotive industry. According to the press release, this year’s presence have recorded the largest amount of companies involved and gathered under one roof tallied in its history and I’m pretty sure that goes the same way in attendance as foot traffic was out of the ordinary. As you may all know, last year, the crew decided to pick cars that made it as their personal favorites out of the show for coverage and that’s not going to change this year but we kind of feel that wasn’t enough to sooth you guys viewing pleasures. We decided to add more content out of the SEMA show to give you guys more feel of how SEMA is being done every year. As most media people that got credited to cover SEMA, 90-95% of this coverage are all new cars, new products, and everything automotive related and we all know that’s not all that is there. Of course promoting a name brand is the top priority of these companies and to do that, they usually hire the top, well known gorgeous women in the industry. To these ladies, if they ever get hired to work for SEMA, they know they’ve made a name in the industry and kind of reach the top of their career and that is what we’re trying to show you as the other content for our coverage of this year’s SEMA show. Here are the ladies of SEMA 2013.

South hall is where all the wheels and tire companies are located and if you haven’t been to SEMA, this is the place where most of the models are in attendance and that is why I decided to cover this part of the convention first to get it done with. As soon as I enter the hall, I was greeted by the girls of Falken tires booth as they are placed right by the entrance doors. First off, we have Katie Carnes as she was posing right by the 2010 Falken Porsche 997 GT3 RSR ALMS car and also handing out falken playing cards and lanyards.

Vortech Super chargers Wins Dyno Day at Evasive Motorsports

Vortech_FRS_1

Over the weekend was Evasive Motorsports’ FR-S / BRZ Dyno Day. Evasive Motorsports is no stranger to the platform, as they have built a boosted FR-S for Global Time Attack. Evasive’s facility houses a Mustang Dynamometer which is said to produce the most accurate and reliable dyno readings because of its ability to simulate load under “real-world” driving conditions, which is much different from other brands that use a free spinning drum, thus exaggerating the numbers upward.

Representing Team Vortech Superchargers was Robert Kochis, a.k.a. Staycrushing, and his Hot Lava Scion FR-S, equipped with a Gear-driven V-3 H67BC centrifugal supercharger. The intercooled system is a complete bolt-on with all the necessary belts, pulleys and reusable high-flow air filter. Robert’s FR-S is mildly tuned at 6PSI.

 

Vortech_FRS_Dyno
During that day, Robert’s FR-S pulled an impressive 209WHP and 160TQ on Evasive’s Mustang Dynamometer.  These numbers were good enough to surpass all the others that day, including the Green HKS powered FR-S from Garage FR-S that dynode at a respectable 200WHP (reported).

Thanks Danny Nguyen of JDMZIPTIES.com for the awesome shots. JDMZIPTIES Facebook.

AirPower Group Hits the Street – Part 2 – Vortech / Paxton

The second installment features, the Tjin Edition 700+HP Camaro SS, the record breaking Mustang GT by Creations n’ Chrome, a sleeper SRT8 Jeep, and a stylish Infiniti G35 Sedan.

A great mix of drama, performance, and excitement. This stunning 3-minute video shows what the AirPower Group has to offer, whether its for style or function, they have a supercharger for any application.

Apparently there will be more videos to come, so we are excited to see what’s next!


HIN Pomona 2012

 

Hot Import Nights 2012 season opener was supposed to be at Toyota Speedway in Irwindale but due to the recent events of the venue, it had to shut down. The guys from HIN didn’t want to begin their tour with disappointed enthusiasts since some people bought their tickets ahead of time, so instead of  the show being cancelled, they made a change of  venue and decided to have it in Pomona instead. If you do remember, Pomona Fairplex is one of the OG spots for HIN back in the day so for them to look for another location, it didn’t take long.

Hot Import Nights isn’t just a show to many people, but a lifestyle as well. The cars aren’t the only thing you would consider as an attraction but the whole night is filled with various DJ’s spinning with music festival like entertainment. A market place full of vendors giving away free stuff, and of course there are models all around. While DJ’s were spinning house and hip-hop, go-gos were dancing wearing next to nothing and models were walking around having their pictures taken. A good amount of cars that anyone would consider quality, but these aren’t just highly customized  cars though, most are daily drivers,and these are the most prized possessions of the owners. You can tell this is what all their time is devoted to so here’s the recap of  what we covered.

 

This Porsche 911 from Donlyson, is definitely a neck breaker. I started walking my rounds to see the cars that has quality and immediately, this thing stop me from going around.  I seriously  stay at this spot and  just gazed at it for a good 10 mins. or so. Without seeing the rest of the cars, I believed this beauty already got the best of show. In my opinion that is.

 

This Lexus GS is parked VIP style representing Royal Flush crew. Look at that camber in the rear.

 

One of the few popular show cars here in Southern California, here’s Armand’s famous MR2 looking fresh as always.

 

The main man of Import Fashion and his ride, Alvin’s G35. Stunning as always.

 

This bike is one of the unique rides I saw at the show. I believe its a Ducati and thought of the Flinstones because of the color scheme and style.

 

One of the few exotics that was at the show under the Savinni booth.

 

The owner of this is a female and I believe its for sale with a rare Misha widebody kit.

 

Flawless.. One day I will get to ride one of these bulls.

 

Growing up, I used to watch these all the time and seeing them makes me miss being a kid. Can you guess who’s driving it?

 

This Evo IX is owned by Jovi from team Ar-Kan. I got a chance to hang out and have breakfast with these guys and rolled in to the show. It was nice meeting you guys! I believe Jovi won first place in the 4 door category. Congratulations bro!

 

One of the few domestic super  cars at the show.

 

Auto Concept Elite’s Top Secret Supra. These guys still roll hard.

 

A gorgeous FD another one of  Auto Concept Elite.

 

Also, this GTR is painted and not wrapped. A little bit tricky and Its on HRE’s under Auto Concept Elite booth.

 

Here’s another domestic that we shot recently.  Sal’s Chicane Mustang with Vortech Supercharger.

 

One of the many customized bikes at the show.

 

Another famous rides in Southern California. Jose Romo’s Audi wagon.

 

A Hayabusa dedicated in honor of Michael Jackson. I thought it was pretty cool.

 

All in all, I expected to have more quality cars than usual. There are also some rides that are not so welcomed at the show but they got in instead. I hope next time, HIN would raise the bar and have a screening process so that more enthusiast would be interested in coming and put HIN where it used to be. There are more rides that I didn’t cover but I just put the ones which I think are considered highlights of the show.

And of course, video coverage from Mikey and PVR Motorsports.

Now, it won’t be HIN without the women so here are the models.

Miss Michelle Yee modeling under EurOwnd booth. She also hosted the gogo competition.
