It seems we are addicted to billet. Nearly everything (maybe everything come to think of it) we manufacture is out of domestic grade billet material. Forgings do have their place, and we have a number of products where forgings would traditionally be considered “the ideal way to manufacture”. Extreme racing (and crawling) push those boundaries though, even the slightest material imperfections can make the difference between 1st and last. We work with only the purest billet materials, from 6061 to 300M and beyond. It’s not the most cost-effective way to go, but it’s the best in terms of quality and reliability. With that, back to work we go.

Oh, and in case you were wondering… the in production parts pictured here WILL BE THESE.
