Ultra-Carbon is proud to announce that our brand new solid carbon fiber double beadlock 16”x16” drag wheels will be on display at both the SEMA show this week and the PRI show coming up in December. They’ll be displayed in the Gear Vendors Booth on the 2017 Drag Week Unlimited Class winning ‘66 Corvette of Team Schroeder Ens. This is the first time our wheels have been mounted on a car. Dave Schroeder and John Ens have been just as passionate as I am about this project from the very beginning and I couldn’t be more proud to be working with them. Though the wheels aren’t yet ready for track testing, we are currently in the process of testing to clear SFI specs.
So, if you’re at SEMA this week, make sure you swing by, say hi to the guys in the booth, and let me know what you think of the wheels in person. I can assure you, like all the other parts we produce, pictures simply don’t do them any justice. And if you see any publicity on these wheels please tag me, I’d love to see what others around the industry are saying about them when they see them for the first time. I’m sure there will be plenty of doubters, but these wheels WILL PASS SFI testing, and will be available for sale very soon.
A very special thank you to Tommy Kirk and Aaron Brown at Mac-Fab Beadlocks for the rush job on a set of brand new 16” beadlock rings in polished and black powdercoat. I appreciate you guys for the quality work and the hustle to get them out to us!!
Also a big thank you to Carl Robinson for the technical advice and business pointers as this project moves forward.
