GoodGuys Del Mar

Post Show Report

It
was an eventful weekend out at the GoodGuys Del Mar show.  Over 100
cars were weighed at the Ridetech suspension analysis booth and hundreds
of customers talked to our on-hand tech advisors.  But the loudest
happenings were over at the autocross…

Mary Pozzi, equipped with RideTech Triple Adjustable CoilOvers, took
first place in the street machine class and several other customers
ranked towards the top of the Streetrod and Truck classes.  Since Mary
won the street machine class she moves on to the Pro class, where
Ridetech’s Bret Voelkel is currently in the lead.  Even though the
weather threatened at moments, several cars were in attendance both at
the autocross and the show in general; Including Rob McGregor’s new C10
truck with Ridetech TA CoilOvers installed.

Overall the mood at the show was positive and many are excited to go
back next year.  But until then you can review dozens of exclusive
photos and autocross times online at ridetech.com.

2012 Vehicle Weights
Datebase updated

So
far this year, we’ve weighed and performed ride quality analysis for
over 250 cars at GoodGuys shows across the US!   And now that we’re back
at HQ, we have had time to upload all the vehicle weights from the most
recent events online [Click Here]. 
So check them out!  We’ve
encountered everything from a 1956 VW Beetle that weighed 1,200 lbs to a
1972 Steyer-Puch Pinzgauer (army truck) that weighed 5,200 lbs.

Battle at the Banks

Ridetech Sponsored Event

If
you live in the midwest then you might want to check out the Battle of
the Banks event happening early this May.  Ridetech will be a sponsor
and participant at the event and we recommend anyone looking for a fast
track to come out and thrash on their car.  The fastest car at the event
will win $1,000 in cash! 

At the show, we are going to be showing off the new 1933 Ford we’ve
been building all this spring.  The event should prove as a great
testing ground for the car.  Also appearing at the Battle of the Banks
is the 48 Hour Camaro with a new 417 Lingenfelter engine that should
promise some nice horsepower.

The event will take place at the Salem Speedway in Indiana on May 5th.  Rules, regulations, and signup forms are available at: http://calekernhotrods.com/batb/register.php
