The Big Show, Right Here In Your Hands. Another SEMA show and car season has come and gone, and we’re still sifting through all of the awesome builds, products, and people we saw out in Vegas for the return of in-person SEMA. After the first hiatus in SEMA history, it was great to see the show come roaring back to life with all of the tire smoke and action we’ve come to know and love.
In addition to hosting our Season 8 Tuner Battlegrounds champion, Kaylee Crayton, and her FR-S in our booth for 2021, we also got the chance to check out the Global Media Awards new products showcase. We had Jordan Lenssen browse the entire showcase product by product and pick out his top 10 while on-site. You’ll find his top 10 picks in this issue, and he breaks down exactly why they’re such cool products.
You may have noticed the unique Mazda RX-7 and Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R on the cover. Owned by Chelsie and Cole of Throttle Thrashers Garage in western Canada, these two builds took the crowds of SEMA by storm by climbing the ladder in SEMA’s Battle of the Builders. A big congratulations goes out to them, and we figured there’s no better way to celebrate their success than a double feature!
You’ll also find coverage - and the winners of awards - from our Tuning 365 Tour car show stops in Long Beach and Atlanta from last year, as well as a variety of the latest products and builds. As always, thank you for reading. We hope to see you at SEMA with us next year!
