Wekfest USA is one of Southern California’s premier aftermarket import events. This weekend, we attended their Long Beach show down by the waterfront overlooking the Queen Mary. What started as a simple get together for auto enthusiasts alike in a small parking garage in San Francisco in 2009 has since grown into its eighth year spanning 9 cities, domestic and abroad.
Wekfest’s message is simple: make each exhibiting vehicle and vendor the focus of the show and create an enthusiast environment everyone can enjoy and share their passions together. Read More about Summer Kicks off with Wekfest Long Beach
Here at Viair, it’s not all about air suspension or offroad. We enjoy seeing our compressors being used in a variety of applications, whether it’s in agricultural, industrial, medical, or BBQ rib making industries!
Our goal is to give back to the community where we can. We achieved this with our latest community outreach project for students at Random Lake High School in Random Lake, WI. Project GRILL is a program in Sheboygan County that teaches high school students how to design, manufacture and market a product from beginning to end. By learning how to create a custom grill from scratch, students will have an opportunity to explore various manufacturing career options. In this 30-week program, students will be able to gain experience in areas such as project management, design, fabrication and finishing, assembly, quality, and testing.
This year, 13 students are making a 1/3 scale replica of the Big Taste Grill made by Johnsonville Sausage, LLC. Because the grill lid weighs 500 pounds, students at Project GRILL approached us to donate a pneumatic solution for lifting the lid. The students’ grill will use two pneumatic cylinders to assist in lifting the 500 pound lid to expose the grilling area. We are proud to share that the cylinders will be powered by VIAIR’s Quarter Duty OBA compressor kit. As of last month, the students have started to install the compressor kit, and are currently adding safety features to make sure the grill is safe for all users. The students completed this project last week and they did a great job! We look forward to seeing this grill in action!

When you think of offroading or 4 wheeling, you may think of the VIAIR’s OnBoard Air (OBA) Kits that help keep you aired up or down while out on the trails. East Coast Overland Adventures is a lifestyle blog about overlanding, mainly on the east coast. Recently, they did an unbiased review of our VIAIR Ultra Duty OBA. They discuss the importance of tire pressure management for both on and off-road applications.
Here are some highlights from their product review:
Installing a ViAir Corp Onboard Air System is pretty straight forward. Everything you need is in the kit right out of the box. The system is flexible enough to mount wherever you need it to go. The included wires and hoses are more than adequate for most installations but if you were going for something elaborate or very custom you probably already have what you need anyway.

In 2007, Relaxing in SoCal was introduced to the automotive community. What started off a smaller show has attracted more and more local enthusiasts over the years. RISC is now one of southern California’s premier automotive events, inviting all types of vehicles to its current show location.
The show had its beginnings at the K&N Engineering facility in Riverside. Soon after, it was moved to Alpine Electronics of America’s headquarters in Torrance. As RISC continued to outgrow its location, the show moved to its current location – Stub Hub Center in Carson, California where the ample space provides plentiful parking for spectators and show goers.
