They really ARE trying to restrict our access to performance parts and our freedom to build a race car. REALLY.
You may have heard of the RPM Act and the fight to protect our rights as racers and performance parts manufacturers. And although it may seem like the process is dragging to pass the RPM Act into law, every law proposed goes through a long series of reviews and approvals before landing on the President’s desk. This Performance Racing Industry video does a great job of comparing the lawmaking process with building a race car! Check it out:

Mike “Q-Ball” Clarke and Kevin Oeste recap the 2022 SEMA Show and look forward to the new developments to come next year. A highlight for Kevin was hosting the SEMA Central Stage and interviewing people from all aspects of the automotive world, but perhaps the most memorable was surprising SEMA CEO Mike Spagnola with a Mikey Thompson streamliner model kit… just like the one Mike built as a kid that got him enthused about cars! Tears were shed, for sure. Other notables included Top Fuel racer Antron Brown, Hoonigan rally driver Ken Block, and more. Of course, you’ll find Automotive Trivia and much more on the latest V8 Radio Podcast!
We were super-stoked to see the 1932 Ford Roadster owned and loved by Hot Rod Magazine’s Gray Baskerville. It’s not only a righteous ride, but has crossed over 230,000 miles in the name of having a good time telling car stories to the masses. It was great to see it in the Hot Rod Magazine / MotorTrend booth at the 2022 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, NV. It’s also on the cover of the 75th Anniversary issue of Hot Rod – check it out! @hotrodmagazine @semashow #32ford #hotrod #sema #baskerville #toocool #adeeos #legend #icon

The V8 Radio team was in full-force at the 2021 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, and this is just one of several episodes covering the event. You’ll find a general overview of the show, and also an interview with Mike Copeland of Arrington Performance about their supercharged LS-powered 1948 Chevy pickup that they reconfigured to run on Hydrogen! It got tons of attention at the show, because it makes around 500 horsepower with nearly zero emissions! Is this the future of hot rodding?
