As cars become more sophisticated, so do the electronics that make them run. This year, Dakota Digital showed us a smart new way to add cruise control to an GM LS drive-by-wire throttle system as installed into a classic or muscle car. They also demonstrated their intelligent Vintage Air controllers designed to maintain precise control of Gen IV A/C systems. These are all very cool ways to add modern-car features to your resto-mod! Presented by ARP.
The 2015 SEMA show in Las Vegas is underway, and we had our cameras snappin' pics all day. Here's the first day photo gallery of cars, parts, and whatever we thought was cool from the biggest automotive aftermarket trade show in the world!
We stumbled across this cool diner / restaurant on our way out to the 2015 SEMA show. It's called Crane's Museum & Shoppes, and it's located in Washington, Misourri. We went for the breakfast and stayed for the very well stocked antique and car museum in the back. They have tons of old car-themed items on display, ranging from antique cars and gas pumps to scale models, toys, and pedal cars. There are plenty of non-car themed antiques on display as well, so your non car-fanatic traveling companions won't get bored. Crane's is just of Intersate 70 and is easy to find. Be sure to say hello to Cooper the dog.
The 2015 SEMA show is right around the corner, and we'll be there all week bringing you the latest cars, parts, and even the Booth Babe Challenge! Join the V8TV Forum to play along!

Fasteners need to be tightened properly to achieve the required clamping pre-load or your engine could have big problems down the road. In this video, we show you how to check the accuracy of your torque wrench, and explain the need for proper fastener lubrication to get an accurate "squeeze" on critical engine parts. ARP developed their Ultra-Torque assembly lubricant for this reason, as it allows fasteners to reach their target clamping force without the need for repeated torque cycles, it offers a high melting point to stay on the fastener, and it is non-metallic.
