Crappy Photos by SEMA induced sleep deprived, overly caffeinated Khiem Dinh

SEMA 2012 is now in the books and it was PACKED.  I think it might be some new record for the number of booths and cars in attendance.  A previously unused parking lot was full of show cars and trailers.  Registration had to be moved to make space for more booths.  There was so much cool stuff that I'll have to do this in two parts.  Part I will cover some parts and cool 'tuner' race cars.  Part II will look at some of the professional race car builds.

Global Time Attack Round 5 - Texas Edition

By Wes Dumalski

"Everything is bigger in Texas!" At least that's what they say... When I stepped off the plane my first destination was the bathroom. I unzipped with nervousness and as I relieved myself I realized that so far, the above cliche was completely untrue. After leaving the facilities with my head hung in shame I realized that something WAS bigger in Texas... The ASS whooping that Global Time Attack was going to deliver to the infield course at Texas Motor Speedway!

Global Time Attack - Round 4 - New Jersey Motorsports Park

By Wes Dumalski  

Round 4 of the Global Time Attack series hit the Jersey Shore this past weekend to lay down some lap times and settle some friendly wagers. And while the coverage is normally about times and analytics I'd like to point out to those that have never attended a GTA event, it is about much more than that...

Hanging out and meeting Fellow Dorks.

AMS Alpha Omega GTR Automotosport Chicago Mitsubishi Evo X IX XIIICompany Profile: AMS Performance 

By Wes Dumalski 

AMS Performance... No we are not talking about the knock off CDM version we are talking about the original Automotosport hailing from Chicago Illinois. Truth be told I spent some time at the AMS shop last November and began working on this article. It should have been before your eyes long ago, I should have been able to belt out a piece regaling you with their amazing records in the drag racing, power output, and time attack worlds. I should have been touting their accomplishments in the EVO and GTR worlds. SHOULD is the operative word here. The reality was that I didn't want to write THAT article. Hell every AMS article talks about their accomplishments from 8 Second Evo's and GTR's, to one of the most dominant time attack cars in US history. And while those are the things that AMS is best known for NONE of them would be possible without a key ingredient. That's right I am going to brush those things aside and focus on what makes AMS tick.... PEOPLE.

Company Profile - Radium Engineering

By Wes Dumalski

por·nog·ra·phy  

[pawr-nog-ruh-fee]

noun: obscene writings, drawings, photographs, or the like, especially those having little or no artistic merit.

Shit, I could use the above to describe just about every article I have ever written. But the reality is that when I first laid my eyes on the offerings of Radium Engineering, PORN was the first thing that came to mind. In the current sea of inferior parts to lay gaze on the products that Radium proudly engineers, prototypes, and builds here in the States is nothing short of inspiring!
