iNews- The Q500 finds another fan! + Q500 Dyno Run testing

A great review from iNews!

READ THE REVIEW HERE:

Highlights:

"It immediately feels more focused and connected, although the ride is also better at dealing with rough roads. Itís more incisive, has lots more grip, and the extra sharpness of the steering is also welcome."

"Chuck in an exhaust system thatís pure Bullitt and youíve a fully-honed sports car thatís a world away from a regular Mustang. It feels like Porscheís given it the once-over and perfected it into something more eager, agile and immediate, "




We also took the Q500 down to our Friends and approved Steeda installers Perfect Touch for a couple of dyno runs and have set up a

Steeda Driving Experience - SMUK Day! March 2018

Well another great Steeda Driving Experience completed, this time with our friends from Simply Mustangs UK, one of the UK's most dedicated "mixed ownership" Mustang clubs.

A whole herd of ponies were in attendance for our first 2018 Steeda Driving Experience, with a nice range of S550 and S197 Mustangs dominating the line up. There was also a fair amount of "whine up" too, as there were quite a few supercharged cars in attendance.

The day started with our fast left hand bend, and people got stuck in with verve, and the numbers management went very well with everyone "doubling up" and swapping in and out of cars as passenger and driver for two totally different experiences.

Accelerating down the approach road provided a great example of why fitting a Steeda "Stop the Hop" pack is ESSENTIAL for any supercharged car, as a whipple charged car (who shall remain nameless) shot straight off the track onto the grass while attempting to launch. If that was on the road --> kerb impact --->big crash or shattered wheels potentially.

Of course just because they remain nameless doesn't mean the following picture is not them! It was a lovely car with a nice Whipple install done by GT101.

Once the bend antics were complete the cars split into 2 groups and 2 circuits were built up. The weather was perfect all day, and we can safely say a great time was had by all.

The Steeda Q500 was on display (and we managed to sneak in a few goes at the end!) as well as displaying a selection of our favourite Mustang wheels by Velgen.

Happy New Year! The World Loves the Q500 Enforcer!

Well Steeda UK kicked off 2018 in great style with an amazing premier of the "Velgen Society UK" in a meet at the historic Bicester heritage centre.

We were blessed both with amazing sunny weather (in the midst of January greyness, mista nd rain!), and also a fabulous selection of cars, customers and dealers who had come along to support that day, and we were also very happy to host Scott the owner of Velgen wheels from Miami, and his legendary photographer and vidmaster, Franco.

MSN cars also attended, and threw up this great little article.

The attendees were lucky enough to grab some Velgen swag as well as bear witness to the glories of the brand new Velgen Forged ranged. Some people wept as their beauty was revealed... (and I am almost not exaggerating).

Velgen Forged Wheel Examples Revealed!






























They also got the first reveal of the completed Steeda Q500 Enforcer UK demo car

The Velgen meet was the curtain raiser event to the Performance Car Show at the Autosport International event at the NEC in Birmingham. 

We were soon set up and after an extremely tiring but fun 4 days we crawled home and flew home and were amazed by the incredibly positive reception we had received across the board both from the press and the general public.

Steeda Driving Experience- 2 North Weald Airfield Friday 22nd September 2017

Have a blast with Steeda at North Weald Aerodrome! Join us on Friday 22nd September to show off your Ford!
A full day of driving action, giving you the chance to learn how your car handles at the limit.
Unlike a traditional track day, this airfield based days allows you to really push in a "one at a time" driving environment based on a huge open pan with nothing but cones to hit.



No Armco! No other drivers! 

No helmets required, just a driving licence and a willingness to have fun in your car.

The day lasts all day from 9AM (but get there earlier to get your car ready and sign in etc) till 4pm, and we firmly believe its the best fun you can have in your car for the money. Meet your fellow Steeda lovers and Ford owners and jump in each others cars in between your own runs to experience something different too.

Normally the day consists of mastering a high speed bend int he morning, then running a couple of small timed circuits in the afternoon.

Noise limits do apply however, so if you have a super loud car, you probably will be barred!

North Weald is on the M11, one junction up from the M25.

Ticket is for one car slot so feel free to share the drive with your friend. Cost for one slot is £89 inc vat. BOOK YOUR SLOT HERE

If you dont want to drive feel free to come along and hang out and say hello! This should be a relaxed fun day out for everyone. Slots are strictly limited to maximise driving time for everyone so book now while they are available. Buy multiple slots and come along with your friends!

Our first day was a great success. You can read about it and look at some pictures here:
