Modern technology and Engineering
We are dedicated to building the finest component cars in the industry. Our comprehensive line of cars is characterized by modern technology underpinnings for safety, incredible handling, buildability, and long service life.
Our bodies are carefully hand crafted in gelcoated fiberglass. The replica bodies accurately replicate the original cars and, in fact, many of them are created from molds taken from the original car they replicate.
Regardless of he body style you choose, underneath lies our signature difference – just about every car has an all-aluminum monocoque chassis and bespoke suspension carefully crafted with advanced manufacturing technology including computer-controlled laserjets, waterjets and Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machining. Every chassis is completely welded with the GTAW (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding is the new name for what was known as TIG) process to insure the best possible strength and appearance. TIG welding costs more, but typically results in better welds and superior appearance. It's the welding technology that all serious race cars use – just look at an F1 or IMSA prototype car.
This chassis architecture is much stronger that the typical tube-frame design of 50+ years ago, in addition to being completely resistant to perforation corrosion, and much stiffer for noticeably improved handling. And the suspension components are much stronger, yet lighter, and suitable for the stresses that modern tires and road conditions can dish out.
Probably the best way to appreciate the technology in every one of our cars is to visit the factory to see the cars close-up, and in person. You'll see the cars being built, and even have a chance to see some completed cars in our showroom.
