The Best Post-SEMA Show Around
January 22, 2019
The 2nd annual CSF x Players Show 2018 was a huge success! The turnout was terrific and the quality of cars that showed up was top notch. Because SEMA is an industry-only show, the general public is not allowed to attend. When we were planning on the dates for our inaugural show, we had the idea of it taking place after SEMA so that this event can be the public debut of some of SEMA’s top builds. Southern California is dubbed as the mecca of the automotive industry so several builds are local to us and many are friends of ours in the industry. It was a great way to spend a Sunday with friends, family, good food and to top it off admission is FREE!
AWD + 1000hp + Honda Wagon?!

Bisimoto is a name that needs no introduction when it comes to the Honda scene. For a few years he has branched out and left his personal mark on a few Porsches that managed to make heads turn and spin at SEMA, but he has returned to his roots with this latest build, the Wago-van.

“Hey, let’s put a $40,000 body kit on a Ferrari and turbocharge it”, we all at times say some crazy things to our friends, but what happens when they take you seriously? Well, this is what happens, you end up with Bright red Ferrari that sounds like a Jetson’s mobile when it’s cruising.

Now that SEMA is behind us, well by now, it’s way behind us, and I’m finally getting some time to catch up on some coverage from several events. I guess better late than never right? This year’s SEMA was huge for us as it is each year, but it’s exciting to see the CSF brand continue to bloom like the Cereus cactus in Crazy Rich Asians, viewing party and everything! (a.k.a. our booth). It’s an understatement when I say our booth was LIT. It’s also a benefit to having a SEMA Battle of the Builders (BOTB) finalist as a booth car two consecutive years in a row. In fact, we’ve had 3 BOTB finalists in our booth in the past 4 years.

It’s SEMA crunch time and I’m somewhat relieved that we are not building a car this year. Building the #CSFEVOX for SEMA 2017 was definitely a once in a lifetime experience, but very stressful, time consuming and costly. To some, it’s an annual tradition and for those who build a car each year, hat’s off to you!

Do you even NEVER LIFT bro?
May 16, 2018
TheNever Lift 1/2 mile racing event took place two weeks ago and was hosted by Motovicity Distribution and ShiftS3ctor in Coalinga, CA on April 28-29, 2018. Never Lift is a side-by-side, adrenaline pumping airstrip half-mile racing event with speeds sometimes topping and then blowing by 200 mph!! The two-day action-packed event featured over 200 high-powered vehicles competing for bragging rights and impressive prizes. CSF was there not just to support the event as a vendor, but we also brought out 2 of our company cars to compete!
Introduction to #CSFEVOX
March 11, 2018
Without further ado, I would like to formally introduce you to our first project build ever, CSF’s EVO X. This blog is long overdue and many if not most of you who are reading this may have already seen the car break the internet on social media during its debut at SEMA Show 2017 thanks to our media partners, SpeedHunters! Check out their story here.
and it fits the 4Runner too!

From the desert to the mountains, and where the turf meets the surf, Toyota’s FJ Cruiser was ideally designed as the “go-anywhere SUV”. With its 4.0-liter V6 engine that puts out 260 horsepower, and 271lb-ft torque, it has more than enough power to hit the trails, but still got the smooth look to be able to cruise PCH. Some of the earlier released models are coming of age, and the need to replace the original radiator is becoming increasingly apparent. CSF has developed another industry exclusive, a new all-aluminum, high-performance radiator to keep the Toyota FJ Cruiser and 4Runner cool! Meet the Toyota FJ Cruiser Radiator by CSF.

The GT-R market in the USA primarily focuses on the latest generation R35 model. The Nissan GT-R (R35) has been for sale in the USA since 09. Within its current ~10 year model cycle (give or take), the boundaries of performance and power have been pushed to limits that have been shocking. We’re talking HP figures of over 2000HP, quarter-second drag times under 7 seconds, and top speeds of over 220 mph. Godzilla has really earned its name with the latest and greatest from Nissan that just keeps getting better.
