Well, here's the aftermath:shock

The second day at the SEMA

Our booth babe (trade show model) has joined force with us on this special event.notes

Sema1

She is such a cutie, and her presence alone makes a huge difference for our booth.

Sema2

With her presence and our "OS Giken the ride, the second day was also a success.
Let's hope we could say the same for tomorrow.

People cannot wait to experience the ride of their lives.smile

Completion of the OS Giken booth

They have thought that they could finish setting up the booth in one day, and have a nice free roaming time in Vegas before the SEMA show... but that didn't happen. 
HaHaHaHaHa...happy02  Oh Oops, sorry guys.coldsweats01

I guess they had to rearrange everything to change the layout due to some technical difficulties.  At least they have made it through, and physical part of the preparation is complete.  Now they had to prep. emotionally for the big opening day tomorrow.

Good luck guyssign01

Preparing for the SEMA

After leaving Japan for the SEMA show and traveled over 1,000 miles, our staff has finally arrived at the Las Vegas convention center.airplane

As much as they want to rest and gamble, it is time for them to set up the boothpunch

Booth3


It's actually coming along quite nicely.
Booth2


They have originally thought that it will take them whole 2 days to set up the booth, but it looks like they might have some free time to enjoy the Vegas after all.

Media coverage by Option2 magazine

Option2 magazine (one of the well-known auto magazines in Japan) has visited our office to cover new products from OS Giken.karaoke

They have asked for a new product, so we prepared Street Master clutch (Grand Turing for the international market) for them, but they some how and some where heard that we are currently developing an universal 6spd transmission, and wanted to cover it as well...coldsweats01

We were hesitant of it going public so soon since it was still in the development, but the mighty big-boss said "do it",so we done it.

The magazine staff is taking pictures of the 6spd transmission below:downwardleft

Option1

As a process goes, they take picturescamera → have a discussionkaraoke, and hence repeat.

 Option2

It's coming along quite nicely, don't you think?
This unit was equipped with a bell housing for SR20DET.  It will move onto a testing phase very soon by installing it to a test vehicle.

The basic structure of this universal transmission is a main case + a bracket + a bell housing.  The main case was designed to fit any bell housings by replacing the bracket.


Option3_2

Here's a shot of Mr.S, who's in charge of the transmission development, giving a lecture to the magazine staff with a friendly smile.wink

This transmission was originally designed for a customer who wished to have a 6spd M/T on his American V8.
It has evolved to an universal M/T since then to fit many vehicles.

Now moving onto the Street Master.good

Option4_4

Here's Mr. Y, who's in charge of the clutch development, smiling at the camera.smile

The Street Master was designed in mind to provide easy clutch operation for drivers.

"Clutch meet is as easy as OEM clutch, try it and see for yourself" said Mr. Y.

Option5

We always have a round table talk at the end of every interview.  Usually the interview should end here, however, one of the magazine staff asked about the TC24 and how he wanted to see it in person.  The big-boss simply responded "then, why don't you take a look for yourself?!"coldsweats02

That was the beginning of a second round of the table talk.
By the time the discussion was over, the sun was long gone by then...
Hope they didn't regret for asking the question 'cause the big-boss could talk about the TC24 for days.sweat01

Option6

Just look at him, he is looking at the TC24 like a father looking at his own child.

The final delivery of the display items for SEMA

This is our last effort of sending the display items for SEMA showsign01 (OS Giken USA staff is eagerly waiting for its arrivalangry)

Sorry guys, but we are doing our best here, just lookdown

Dsc08681

As long as we could ship them out by tomorrow, there should be enough time for the USA staff to prepare for SEMA.

If our sales manager didn't decide to display the all new Alfa Romeo close ratio gear kit at the last minute, we probably had a little more time to spare and didn't make the USA staff angry(?)... blame it on the manager guys.

Anyhow, our staff made sure to secure the display items from any harm so that they will be all sparkly when you see them at SEMA.shine

Dsc08687

Last but not least, our international sales rep. aka "the old man/surfer" is getting down on the details.eye

Dsc08698

Now all we need to do is to wait for the delivery truck to come and pick them up.

Dsc08700

We thought we could prepare for SEMA early and avoid the last minute crazy time, but nothing ever goes according to the plan...

This is it for SEMA, and we look forward to see you there (of course, we still have to set up the booth once we get there...crying)

Hope no one forgets their passports...coldsweats02
