3R has achieved race wins too numerous to list, with many different marques of cars in; professional, amateur, drag, vintage, and autocross series. Our experience with each of these genres allows us to apply knowledge across boundaries taking the best from what each niche can offer.
We pride ourselves in the fact that we leave no areas of potential performance gain unexplored. When the rules and budget allow, we fully optimize 100% of a vehicle to maximize its performance envelope. Even when we do use off- the- shelf parts, those parts are able to be modified in house in order to optimize the performance of that part within its system.

Our customers benefit from this experience and approach, so that they can win their own races and championships.
