The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS)

The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) is the kickoff event of the year for automotive manufacturers and their enthusiasts. The auto show held in the heart of Detroit attracted over 800,000 attendees in its nine days of display. The auto makers use shows like the NAIAS to showcase all of their vehicles including a variety of colors, models and a collection of vehicles that won’t hit the market for years. If you’re looking for what the future of cars is going to look like, there is a good chance it was on display at the NAIAS.

What jumped at me was Buick. The company was proud to display their futuristic concept vehicle of the future, a model…

Rislone at the GoPro Mountain Games in Vail, CO

Not too long ago, Rislone attended the GoPro Mountain Games in Vail, Colorado. The event was everything you’d think a GoPro event in the mountains would be: energetic, daring and full of people who drove hundreds of miles to attend. Rislone was a featured brand, and people loved our Rislone Complete Fuel System Treatment, which we gave away to those who stopped by our booth to chat. Bobby Janiec and Caitlin Burt, the Rislone spokesteam, were swamped, but swamped by cool people who know how to have fun is never a bad thing.

What’s a picture worth? A thousand words. What’s a video worth? Probably a million, which means we’re sparing you a lot of text by showing you this video…

Remembering the Buick Regal Grand National

I used to have a thing for the Buick Regal Grand National. If you know anything about this car, it’s like saying one had a thing for a puffy toaster on wheels that looked like grandma got crazy with some black spray paint and chrome trim. Normal people are drawn to Corvettes and Porsches and vacations in Hawaii; me, I was drawn to a living room on wheels.

More specificially, I was drawn to the engine of this beast, a 3.8L SFI V6, turbocharged and intercooled to a ridiculous degree for the late 1980s. If you remember this car, you remember it was GM’s dirty little secret, because it could beat the top-dog Corvette…

Rislone Defender Featured in New Monster Truck Destruction Game for iOS

Holly, MI (Dec 13, 2012) — The Rislone® Defender monster truck is featured in ODD Games’ new Monster Truck Destruction game launching today through Apple’s App Store. Players choose monster trucks to crush obstacles, race competitors and hear the roar of the crowd, just like Rislone Defender driver Zach Adams does in real life most weekends.

The Rislone Defender is easily identified by its bright yellow and red color scheme highlighted by the Rislone Mad Scientist clutching a bottle of Rislone Fuel Injector Cleaner. In a game that emphasizes power and performance, Rislone Fuel Injector Cleaner fits right in. It’s a complete fuel system tune-up, designed to maximize vehicle power, performance and mileage.

“We’ve been involved in motorsports for decades and have sponsored the Rislone Defender monster…

Falcon F7 on Display in the Rislone Products Booth at AAPEX

This year in our AAPEX booth (#4416), we’re featuring a beastly Michigan-made horizontal rollercoaster known as the Falcon F7. Its looks are one thing — they stop people dead in their tracks. But the Falcon’s specs are what really raise eyebrows:

Body: paint-finished carbon fiber
Engine: LS7 Corvette engine — 7.0L, 427 c.i. supercharged V8, 620 HP, 585 lb/ft torque @ 5400 rpm
0-60: Approx 3.3-3.6 seconds
Top Speed: Approx. 190-200 MPH
1/4 Mile: 10.9 seconds
Lateral Acceleration: 1.1-1.3g maximum
60-0 Braking: Under 100 ft.

The people behind Falcon are as passionate about building a real-world supercar as we are making automotive chemicals that rise above the rest and work as promised. So far, this car is the star of the show. If you’re at AAPEX in Vegas,…
