2012 Motion Sport Compact Auto Show and Expo at the Long Beach Convention Center

This past Sunday, May 20, 2012, the StopTech team participated in a wonderful industry event: the Motion Sport Compact Auto Show and Expo at the Long Beach Convention Center in downtown Long Beach, California. It was another great event and StopTech was happy to see so many enthusiasts taking their braking needs seriously.

We were especially excited that so many of you were asking about our new line of high performance and racing brake fluid. Whether it's the street 600 or track 660 formula, the StopTech Brake Fluid is carefully designed to give drivers optimized brake system performance at high operating temperatures, with excellent viscosity, lubricity and non-compressibility throughout its useful range.

The popularity of the Motion show has exploded over the past several years so it wasn’t surprising to find out that the show was sold out this year. The goal of this annual event is to create one mega show that embraces the Sport Compact lifestyle, culture, community and industry. The Motion event was designed as a definitive place for manufacturers, hardcore car show competitors, racers, and automotive enthusiasts to meet, listen, learn and share.



Team Hybrid displayed their project BMW E36 in our booth and took home a third place trophy for the Euro class, that fittingly seemed to go with the StopTech Trophy BBK they had installed on the car. Another StopTech-equipped car, a Chrysler 300C, took home a first place in the Domestic class and we were happy to see so many other entrants using our equipment as well!

Besides the Team Hybrid BMW E36 with Trophy BBK we had on display, our friends at Bisimoto Engineering were kind enough to loan us their killer 533-hp Honda CR-Z (above) for our booth this year. Bisimoto also brought their monster 1,000-hp 2012 Honda Civic Si (below and bottom) as well as their twin turbo Porsche 911 (above left and right). Bisimoto’s own 'Bisi Ezerioha was also kind enough to share some pictures he took during setup and show hours.

He even sent over a short video of the team loading up the wicked Porsche 911 at the Bisimoto facility, prior to the event:

 

According to ‘Bisi, “The event was a wild success, and as usual, I used this opportunity to take pictures with attendees, sign autographs, and share technical information about the products and services used in the Bisimoto line of auto builds.  My team, and I, also had many questions fielded to us about the 2012 SEMA show, and enthusiasts begged to know what was coming next from us. It is an honor that the enthusiast community loves the creations that come from Bisimoto, and eagerly anticipate the projects that we explore.”

We certainly count ourselves among those fans eagerly awaiting the next project, waiting to see what ‘Bisi will cook up next.
