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.

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,…

2012 Supercharged 6.2L Ford Raptor SVT, 0-65 MPH Run

One of our team members demonstrates his 2012 Raptor SVT’s power from a very slow roll. The truck has the big 6.2L V8, but modified with a supercharger, new heads, new injectors, an ECU map and a totally revamped full exhaust (headers plus catback system).

If you think it’s impressive on pavement, wait until we post what it can do on the sand dunes.
