We’re finally home from SEMA, one of the largest automotive trade shows in the world. SEMA, which stands for Specialty Equipment Market Association, holds the annual SEMA Show once a year, allowing buyers, sellers, and exhibitors to congregate across 2 million square feet of exorbitantly extravagant booths and cars. It is the industry’s ultimate networking tool, allowing companies to meet one-on-one to further their businesses.
Much like a heart attack, drift attack grips the being of Victorian Drifters and squeezes until all circulation is cut off. Round 2 of Vic Drifts Drift Attack was held at Calder Park, a course that has been off limits for years due to politics with the owners of the track. Drifting used to be a monthly occurrence here, but was closed down due to a decision by management.
As we said before Rotiform is taking SEMA by storm this year. Sitting in the front row of the wheel industry means your product is in hot demand, and with everyone wanting the latest and greatest from Rotiform, it only makes sense that they give their hand at trying something new.

Up next on our list of SEMA build unveils is VIP Modular’s own widebody E61. In the weeks approaching the event, you expect most companies to be tearing in to cars in preparation for their big day. New wheels, new suspension, maybe even a vinyl wrap, all in hopes of getting done by the deadline. VIP, however, tore down an already-good car in order to build the behemoth you see before you; all within a month before the big reveal.
We’ve made no lack of effort to make it known that we’re proud to work with the companies we do. As StanceWorks grew, and the need to bring on sponsors to help keep the site running became prevalent, we agreed from the get go that every company form a relationship with is one represents more than a mere transaction of money.
