SEMA Show Update

Well SEMA 2009 is over, and it was a great show for SpeedFactory. We appreciate all of the support we received from our partners and friends. You can’t go it alone in the automotive industry and SEMA is a great opportunity to seek out new partners, meet friends and discover new opportunities. We also did some indoor kart racing at Pole Position.

Our aluminum block, supercharged 440 SpeedFactory Challenger was a hit in MOPAR alley with lots of spectators snapping photos. Automotive magazine 0-60 even badged it a “SEMA Supercar”.

Motortrend Senior Editor Edward Loh, who orchestrated the cover story in this month’s issue that included the Challenger met up with the team and later blogged about it on Motortrend.com. If you’d like to see Motortrend test a SpeedFactory 440 Challenger at it’s full potential – be sure to let them know!

Our aluminum block supercharged 440 Challenger is a “must-see debut” at the 2009 SEMA show in Las Vegas this week, thanks to a nice posting by SEMA on their website:

One correction – the SpeedFactory Challenger will NOT be in the Mopar booth as previously reported. It will instead be in the Mopar display – the covered walkway display connecting the 2 display halls.

See you there!

Letter from Daniel, proud owner of a Stage 3 Supercharged Challenger

The car was a blast to drive home. Gas mileage did increase to about 22-23 mpg. The ride was very comfortable – firm but no loose play or body roll. The updated suspension really do a lot for the car in terms of giving the driver a much better feel of the road and overall driving experience.

The supercharger. Wow! I can feel the car fighting for traction all the time. I think I’ll have to replace those stock Goodyear Eagle F1′s in about 2 weeks! The power is great though. Very manageable once you learn how the supercharger works and how it’s power is developed. You truly just drive this car around town with no problem. I think I could let my grandma drive this car around town and she would be fine.

The exhaust has a great sound. Under power with your foot to the floor or just cruising at 75mph. Actually at 75mph you can hardly hear it. I love the sound when you let off the gas and the transmission downshifts on its own.

A visit to BBS

We visited BBS headquarters the other day for a test fitment of their new rear 10.5 in. CH-R flow-formed wheels. These will be featured on our Challenger in the Mopar display at SEMA.
