View Full Gallery

Once a year, automotive enthusiasts and media outlets from all over the world congregate in Las Vegas for the annual Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show. Some come for the shimmering lights and the chance to meet their favorite personalities, while others, like us, are there to check out the latest products for our street and strip machines.

If there was any question, we’re happy to say that this year’s attendance was larger than ever and the sheer number of activities during the day and evening made it nearly impossible to catch a good night’s wink. Then again, this event only comes once a year, and we were perfectly fine reaching for the extra cup of caffeine during the day.

When it came to new products, many manufacturers were displaying in full force and we had no intentions of missing any of them. After walking the aisles for several days, we’ve compiled the following list of products that stole our attention. We’re talking about a wide range of items that’ll do justice to any number of rides. Also, if you were fortunate enough to check out the event for yourself, what was your favorite item at the show? Email us at chevyhi@sorc.com and be sure to let us know. CHP

Four-Way Adjustable Coilovers With Remote Reservoir

Who Makes It

What Is It
These four-way adjustable remote-reservoir shocks feature 16 specific adjustments for each knob, and are designed primarily for dual-purpose street/track cars common in the Pro Touring enthusiast crowd. Compression and rebound stiffness of the shock are independently adjustable for both high-speed and low-speed piston movement. The high-speed valve set is active during rapid shock movement and controls how the vehicle reacts to bumps, rumble-strips, or curbs on a road race course. Slower shock movements, such as body roll and brake dive, which directly affect vehicle handling, are controlled by the low-speed valve set.
