WTF Wednesday….Fun with Drift Trikes…

 

 

We do love to have fun as a racing family….and it doesn’t always require the burning of petrol!

On a recent goof off day we took Martín’s drift trike and electric chopper for a little parking lot adventure. Martín has spent the last couple of years as an engineering intern for Local Motors and during that time we got good on their Verado drift trike.

Personally, my fake leg trembles at the thought of the body damage I can suffer on one of these, but they are giggle machines for sure.

Watch for more videos as we plan to gather with other Verado owners, hit a big park and fire up a drone for more fun antics.

Giving away all our SEMA swag…Free shipping even!

We grabbed some neat stuff at the SEMA show this year and figured why not give it away as thanks for everyone who subscribed to our YouTube channel, follows us on Facebook or Instagram or just sends an email to say hi.

Borla cat back exhaust sound clip and install notes

With the SEMA show behind us we can now go back and give some install thoughts on various bits we put on our 2016 Hyundai Veloster Turbo.

Borla was great to work with, the cat back exhaust was a breeze to install late at night in our driveway because that is how SEMA crunch goes.

With plenty of highway time driving Phoenix to Las Vegas and back we can safely say there is no drone, buzz or other nasty noise to worry about. Borla does give a great rumble at the autocross or just powering around town.

Here is a quick sound clip, leave your thoughts on this exhaust or other aftermarket systems you have installed. Remember to subscribe to our Youtube channel for more fun videos.

The boys are happy to be at the SEMA Ignited party with the public after a crazy week at the show.

Well we can finally put the car through some paces now that SEMA 2016 is over and pretty isn’t as important.

Come on out this weekend if you are in the Phoenix area and join Azsolo.com for a cone cruising good time. Bring your ride and test your skill or hop in our passenger seat and feel the sticky Federal Tires wrapped around our NS Wheels, the Borla roar, the firm Ksport coilovers, the whoosh of the Tork Motorsports Big Gulp intake and tuned ECU.

Check out our Youtube channel for videos of past events and of course our antics this weekend. Pics on Instagram or follow us on Facebook for more action in the moment.

 

SEMA 2016 Setup and first impressions

So we made it to SEMA 2016, yeah some carbon bits are still in transit but Socal Garageworks tells us we should see them sooner or later.

Good times driving up from Phoenix especially as we got in some dirt play to show the rallycross side of the Veloster Turbo.

Set up with QuickJack in booth 61007 was easy, some great guys working hard there. Funny to see all the detailing folks desperate to clean our ride, but we want the dirt side, track side look.

We did some walking around as we checked in with our partners Federal Tires, NS Wheels, and Borla.  Plenty of neat rides to catch your eye……

Old school race cars will always be cool….
