Erin Brokovich Represents SWTA There are many women that work in ways to save the muscle cars that we love, but few have simultaneously tried to save the planet from the effects of fossil fuels. Of course you've heard of Erin Brokovich, the V.P. of Environmental Affairs for Save the World Air. I met her at the 2006 SEMA Show at a Press Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. Her heart is really in to both causes, but the proof is in the product. STWA Performance has a product line called the MAGCharR™ which is a bolt-on part that guarantees increased power, greater fuel economy and while also decreasing emissions. STWA's utilizes breakthrough 'flux field technology' to manipulate the physical properties of gasoline to achieve this seemingly impossible feat. This pioneering research has been independently validated by a rigorous research study performed by a world renowned non-profit research and analysis think tank. In fact, SWTA technology's astonishing results in emissions reduction, fuel efficiency improvement and performance enhancement have been certified the world over by government and privately owned laboratories.
There are MAGCharR™ applications that will work on virtually every vehicle; carbureted or fuel injection, four wheels or two, on land, in the air or on the water!

Force Racing Mourns Loss of Team Mate Muscle Cars Live would like to send our prayers out to the Eric Medlen Family and John Force Racing Team for the loss of Eric. When we were at the SEMA show last year, we had the chance to meet Eric and Ashley and take their photo together. I also met one of Eric's childhood friends there who mentioned what a special person Eric was and what a blessing it was to have such a good friend. I really appreciated Eric letting us take a photo, but that was the way he was with all of his fans. Eric will be sorely missed by all of the Auto Racing community.
