Winning Products

To make a fast, winning car you need the Winning Secrets AND Winning Speed Products. Yes, you can win a race without the best speed products on the market, but that depends on your competition! Chances are, some racers know the Secrets and have created or purchased the speed products needed to make a high performance car.

We have all the PRO tools if you want to do-it-yourself, and we have all the PRO Speed Products that have been track-tested to prove they are the fastest.

To win your race, pick (or design) the best Speed Products that are appropriate for your race. That means, you need to read your race rules and select the most appropriate products for your race. How do you know which products are "appropriate"? Reference your race rules, and ask your Race Manager if you have any questions, becasue EVERY race is different.

Our PRO Products fall into the categories below. I summarized the category and highlight our highest performance PRO Speed Products, but you should reference all the products in each category to be sure our PRO product are appropriate for your race
