QA1 Wins Award for Engineered New Product at SEMA360

November 3, 2020

With the SEMA Show canceled for 2020, SEMA instead hosted a virtual event, SEMA360, as a way to showcase the thousands of products being introduced to the automotive aftermarket in 2021. With more than 2,000 products entered into the New Products Showcase, the winners represent the most cutting-edge automotive aftermarket products that will be available to enthusiasts in 2021. This year, QA1 was awarded runner-up in the Engineered New Product category for their new 3-inch MOD Series Shock. 

“We are honored to have our 3” MOD Series Shock recognized in the Engineered New Product category”, says Melissa Scoles, President/CEO. “This series of shocks is transforming the way drivers can change the performance of their vehicles and we are excited to offer it in a 3” version. QA1 puts a lot of emphasis on design and innovation, the team worked hard on this product and is very deserving of this award.”   

The MOD Series shock provides a unique solution for high performance drag and pro-touring cars. Drivers are now easily able to tune for various track conditions, by revalving the shock while it remains on the car. Key to this unprecedented tunability are the QuickTune™ valve packs. These can be swapped out in just minutes, with the shocks remaining on the car, to achieve different force curves. The shock remains free from contamination with no interruption to the oil pathways, providing the racer the ability to have the optimal tuning and force curve capability for any track condition they encounter.
