SEMA 2014 Las Vegas Photo Coverage Brembo Brakes Carbon

BREMBO CARBON-CERAMIC DISCS
Brembo’s new CCM-R Carbon-Ceramic brake disc and pad technology had everyone in awe during their presentation. It’s gotten to the point where each disc is a work of art, and together with its famed calipers (LeFerrari version shown below), Brembo announced its latest technologies will now be offered on the Nissan GT-R (R35) as original equipment. The company says it will save 25 lbs. on the front axle and 31 lbs. on the rear, which means even more potent speed, both in acceleration and braking. Exotic, yes, but it also shows the new technology heights the brake manufacturer is making, which will undoubtedly trickle down throughout its lineup.

Tom Wilga and the staff at Niagara Tuner & Truck Expo were on Mother Nature's "good list" this year at Firemans Park in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Words and Photography by Randi Bentia Historically, Tom's charity event hasn't seen the best weather. A week prior to the 5th annual Niagara Tuner & Truck Expo, it seemed that the weather had the same plans with a forecast of "80% chance of rain" for the weekend in Niagara Falls. Then after a chilly night in Southern Ontario, the clouds broke free the morning of show-day to allow the sun to shine on the…

Formula Drift Round 6 2011: Las Vegas, NV

Formula D’s Vegas event is one of the most unique events on the circuit. Not only is it the only event which is still run on a skidpad (with entry speeds reaching triple digit mph), but the 110F degree daytime temperatures force the sanctioning body to stage the majority of the race at night. The event is dubbed as the “After Dark” showdown, and this year’s event would prove to run well past midnight before Rhys Millen piloted his Hyundai (like Sunday) Genesis to the win. Joining Millen on the podium was runner-up Darren McNamara and third place winner Matt…
