In the mid 1980's two brothers started the day racing motorcycles.  While taking a break within view of a drag strip, their attention shifted from bikes to cars when they saw a Super Gas Camaro leave the line with the front wheels up in the air.  That wheel stand inspired the beginning of what would become RLC Performance Engineering.

We built a 1988 Pontiac Firebird formula street driven racer, designing the car to appear completely stock.  It was driven on the streets, while running a best of time -  8.86 @ 158 mph with a 1.19, 60 ft on a 1/4 mile drag strip.  The car was driven to the Utah Salt Flats and did a two way average of 255 mph putting RLC on the map.  By the end of the 80's we had been featured in several magazines, regularly contributed tech information, and did installations for many tech articles.

In 1993 we got the call from Mike Thermos at NOS asking if we would set up one of their new Nitrous Oxide System on Rod Sabourys 1957 Vette.  We accepted the challenge and set a new world record as the first street driven race car to hit in the 7 second zone, setting a quarter mile street vehicle record of 7.92 @ 170 mph, in English Town, NJ.

We have since modified and built dozens of vehicles that have been raced locally and internationally.  By 1999 we had our own IHRA Pro mod car, and were members of the the North East Promod Shoot Association.

We're not just about drag racing either!  We have built and raced a mud bogger called "Personal Problems" in the East Coast Budweiser 4x4 Mud Hop Series - placing 2nd in the point standings, and in 2001 we won the world championships for the East Coast Boat Racing Associations Modified Division, while setting speed lap records that remain unbroken, even 11 years later.

In the last few years we have branched out and have been working with everything from Boat Racing to Monster trucks.  Our newer ventures include radio controlled vehicles, structural engineering equipment, and cosmetic dress up parts for
custom car and motorcycle builders.  We are now offering our engineering and production services to the general public, providing performance engineering, custom parts fabrication, and manufacturing services, helping other power sport enthusiasts turn their ideas and designs into production quality performance parts.
