Hot cars, tire smoke, and watching drivers race around the streets of Long Beach driving sideways. Sound like a great way to spend your Saturday? Well, then you were probably at the Formula Drift Season opener & Slammed Society Show in Long Beach, CA this past weekend. Vortech and Paxton were there too, and we had a great time showcasing our products and speaking with thousands of spectators in attendance.
Crowds everywhere! No shortage of attendance at this event.
The Vortech & Paxton Superchargers Booth ready to help you with boost questions.
Red, White & Blue…that’s 3 hot FT86’s all showcasing the Vortech V-3 H67B System.
American Muscle represented with two Vortech V-3 Si Supercharged HEMI Challengers and a Paxton NOVI 2200 Supercharged 5.0L Coyote RTR Mustang GT.
Our driver Matt Field’s LSX-Swapped & Vortech V-7 YSi Supercharged S14 Drift Car was there tearing it up, until he cut the wall a little too close, and sent Ms. Pacman flying!
Here are some of our favorite higher profile cars from the event.
Noel’s sick Vortech V-3 H67B Supercharged FR-S debuted it’s new combination Vertex & Rocket Bunny kit at the event and drew ridiculous amounts of attention all day long.
Migel’s FR-S was the very first FT86 in the country, and now it proudly wears a brand new Vortech V-3 H67B Supercharging System. Migel had his “1 of 86” plaque on display for all to see at the event.
What can we say about Jon Sibal’s Vortech V-3 Si Supercharged Challenger R/T that hasn’t already been said? One of the spectators at the event may have said it best when he stopped dead in his tracks and yelled “That Challenger is GORGEOUS!!!”. We agree.
Trufiber was at the event showcasing their great products alongside their own Paxton NOVI 2200 Supercharged Gotta-Have-It Green GT Convertible. We love Trufiber, and suggest you check them out!
Chris & Gary from Creations n’ Chrome stop by the Vortech Booth to say hello.
Robert’s #Staycrushing Rocket Bunny FR-S was grabbing attention in the ACT Booth.
Joey’s Paxton NOVI 2200 Supercharged RTR Mustang was looking particularly sharp with it’s metallic bronze paint under an overcast Long Beach sky.
Vortech’s own V-3 H67B Supercharged Scion FR-S came to event wearing it’s track shoes (in the form of cast Rotiform NUE’s and Toyo R888 tires).
The Forgestar Wheels Rocket Bunny equipped FR-S was showing off all of its goodies in the Takata Booth, including the Stealth Black Vortech V-3 H67B Supercharging System.
Ashton’s V-3 Si Supercharged Hillbank Motorsports Mustang GT in the Exedy Booth.
The Fatlace Rocket Bunny FR-S was showing front & center as spectators came down the pedestrian bridge stairs from vendor row. They told us at the event that the Vortech V-3 H67B Supercharging System under the hood really “transformed the car”. We think that a lot of parts on this beauty helped to transform the car…but we definitely helped. 🙂
This Comptech Supercharged Honda S2000 utilizes a Paxton NOVI 1000 Supercharger and air-to-water charge cooler.
Vortech’s own V-3 Si Supercharged 5.7L Challenger R/T is always looking good, and this day was no exception. Thanks to Billet Technology for the sweet Vortech emblems.
