Welcome to the official Team Revvolution SEMA 2014 coverage preview! The SEMA (Specialty Equipment Manufacturer's Association) Show is the automotive industry's premier specialty and aftermarket product trade event that takes place annually in Las Vegas, Nev. In 2013, the show drew more than 130,000 participants and 2,500 exhibitors from 130 countries, making it the largest 'modified' industry event in the world.
As the last event of the year, the two-day Shift-S3ctor Airstrip Attack 7 by Diamonds by Wire and OB Prestige went out with a bang by hosting the most powerful and record-setting half-mile drag we've seen to date. To give you an idea of how hot this event is, the total attendance was tallied at 1,500 over the course of both days with 240 participants. That's 120 of the fastest and most powerful street cars in the nation running each day. Saturday sold out in only 15 minutes, and Sunday was sold out in 24 hours. Ridiculous.
The biggest names, craziest builds and the cleanest cars show up in force to Wekfest, and the most recent stop of the USA tour in Houston was no different.
East Coast Tuners hosted their first Gumball meet in 2013 at an airfield in Danbury, Conn., and the show and turnout were impressive for a first time event. This year they came back in a big way, this time hosting the event at Lime Rock Park, about as great a venue as you could ask for.
Everyone has a bucket list of things they want to do in their life. Some people want to climb Mt. Everest, others want to travel the world. For gearheads like us, we dream of building our perfect car or attending something like Gatebil. If you haven't heard of Gatebil, the intro of this video sums it up quite well.
