Well done Lance!

We've been helping Lance tune his 65 coupe for competition in the Ultima and Goodguys autox events over the past couple of years. With each adjustment, tweak or addition of parts, he has been creeping up the leader board. Beating cars with bigger budgets, more tire and more motor.

Toward the end of last year Lance took 5th place in the Design & Engineering category at the OPTIMA BATTERIES’ ULTIMATE STREET CAR SERIES EVENT @ Texas Motor Speedway! We knew the car looked the part, we just had to work on making it faster...

Lance had been running our Adjustable Strut Rods and Tubular LCA for a year or so with good results and good feedback. We knew there were big gains to be had by ditching the stock UCA/spring/shock arrangement so Lance took a leap of faith and upgraded to our Tubular UCA and Bilstein coilover system. In his next event out, he took 2nd place in the Street Machine class at this past weekends Goodguys event in Texas!

I appreciate your time and patience with me and my car. In our first conversations, you recommended your full front suspension to start but I choose to run old suspension mods and piece your's together. After finally completing your full front suspension, I can say, I finished near the top at the Spring 2016 Goodguys Autocross Texas running with some of the hands down baddest, fastest cars out there.

Thx "
