The Shootout 2016


The DSM Shootout has definitely outgrown the little “Drunk’N’Drag” get together for some DSM enthusiasts that was fulfilled with some sweet 12second cars and drunken stories. It really puts a smile on our face to see that The Shootout has grown to an almost 10,000 attendee event. Yet another great shootout has gone by and the race to next year’s event has begun. Seeing this year’s achievements for both driver’s and event attendance has left us with nothing but an imagination of how great next year’s Shootout will be.

We had decided to approach this year’s shootout quiet differently, the usual let’s slap the motor together, tune the car and throw it in the trailer approach was thrown aside. We had chosen to build some wondering and confusion for those attending by doing something never done before, and posting teasers of our car on the “interwebs”. Marco had come up with a crazy idea of doing a Cantilever set up in the rear end that had even the employee’s scratching their heads. Before we knew it we were cutting up the suspension and looking for a way for this to work. Therefore the shootout was more of a test and tune for us than a racing competition.

Our reason for leaving the traditional rear end set up  had all started with a simple decision to upgrade to a 3000GT rear end…… Well simple was clearly an understatement, the new objective was to add a bigger tire and run a true drag shock. Our goal wasn’t to fab everything up and throw it in the car for some street cred. The objective was to improve traction and make the car go straight.7f756bcb3481db56650768cc5fc0cf50

We could not be any more satisfied with the outcome of the cantilever set up we had come up with here at the Magnus Minion Headquarters! Everything went as planned and the car did exactly what we had intended on.

Our good friend Gary Andr brought out his RWD 1G build and broke quiet a few necks with it. Although the car was not race ready, it was one hell of a teaser for everyone of what’s to come!

We would also like to thank our friends John Wigger, Gary Andr, Nathan Samuels from Apex Motoring, & Mike Andolsun for all their help throughout the weekend!

Magnus is growing again! We need an Order Manager/Inside Sales for a full time position. You must be passionate about motorsports and able to multi-task in a fast paced environment. This position is ideal for someone experienced in a wide range of automotive areas that can “Talk car tech” with customers and dealers. Your primary responsibilities would be taking orders, assembling various products we manufacture or resell, and packaging and shipping orders.

In addition, some customer support is also going to be needed via phone, E-mail and in person to assist customers in choosing the right products to succeed with their goals.

The order manager position includes, but is not limited to, the following responsibilities:

· Inventory management – Keeping track of parts inventory, inventory counts, creating purchase orders for drop ship sales.
· Phone Interface - Ability to speak to customers and dealers, both for customer service and to turn phone calls into sales.
· Build Orders - Look up applications, assemble components (with simple hand tools), and create "assemblies" - all while keeping the order area clean, stocked with small parts, organized and efficient.
· Shipping - Pack and weigh orders, create shipping labels using UPS and arranging pick-ups.
· Returns – Processing customer returns of parts when needed.
· Inside Sales – Answering phone calls and backing up the sales staff.
· Paperwork - Create Sales Receipts and Sales Invoices within our accounting software for all outgoing sales. Experience with QuickBooks preferred.
· Multitasking - As you can see there are a lot of duties for this position, so it needs to be a person that doesn't mind wearing a lot of hats and can juggle multiple tasks at once.

The right candidate for Order Manager will have strong verbal and written communication skills, a good attention to detail, can organize and run their own area (parts, tools, orders, packages and notes), and can get along well with others. Prior shipping experience is a plus, as is basic automotive knowledge. There is some lifting of boxes up to 50 pounds and other light physical labor required for this position. If you like the sound of this position and are passionate about motorsports, please E-mail us your cover letter and resume to info@magnusmotorsports.com
