http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 -Block sanding is what makes cars straight.

The SEMA show is a place to see the latest parts, and also some of the newest car creations from the best builders in the industry.    We spoke with Richard Waitas to learn more about the winning philosophy of MagnaFlow and how their association with people like Chip Foose, Arlen Ness, Mario Andretti, Richard Petty, and more impacts the parts they sell and the enthusiast's experience when using MagnaFlow parts.    We also got the brief tour of the stunning Foose Pantera on display in the booth.   V8TV 2015 SEMA coverage presented by ARP.
 

 

People often ask car builders what they would build for themselves had they the time and resources.   Pure Vision's Steve Strope has had this 1966 Buick Skylark knocking around for nearly 2 decades, and he finally started to turn this car into the altered-wheelbase, Hemi-powered funny car for the street that he had always envisioned.        V8TV 2015 SEMA video presented by ARP Hardware, http://www.arp-bolts.com.

 

It's not every day that we get a chance to hang out with King Richard Petty, but we were afforded that opportunity at the 2015 SEMA show thanks to our friends at MagnaFlow Exhaust.    Here, King Richard speaks of his thoughts on the show, the industry, and the importance of great teamwork.  

 
There are those who like the vintage looks of their carbureted engines but want the performance and drivability of an EFI system.   For these enthusiasts, Holley created the Terminator Stealth EFI system, which is a self-tuning system that looks identical to a Holley carburetor but hides Electronic Fuel Injection inside.     The Terminator Stealth is a new release at the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.     Holley also unveiled the Sniper EFI system, a new cost-effective way to add self-tuning EFI to a car without a high price tag.

The task of covering a quarter-mile drag strip in 6 seconds is one that very few full-race cars can manage, but our friends at Gear Vendors help a new breed of STREET LEGAL cars make it happen, and then drive hundreds of miles on public highways!    It's all about Hot Rod's Drag Week, and Rick Johnson brings us up to speed on Bryant Goldstone's 1973 Javelin and how it all goes down.  From SEMA 2015.   Coverage presented by ARP.   http://www.arp-bolts.com
