Engineering is driven by innovation and advancements in drivetrain
technology. Under the direction of Tony Selva, we have assembled a
dedicated team prepared to deliver the expertise our customers demand.
In addition to our
team, we have developed close relationships with experts in the fields
of machining, metallurgy, and foundry work to bring you the best in
drivetrain technology. Hard work and dedication to our customers is our
number one priority. Our customers receive hands-on technical support at
most racing events.
We offer this
attention to detail and these services to ensure the continued
performance, quality and reliability of our drivetrain products. The
ultimate goal is to achieve the most efficient and reliable transmission
of power to the ground.
We seek to optimize
every transmission component, so the material used becomes ever more
critical to our success. Ongoing testing of both new and existing
materials, often in conjunction with our customers, allows us to offer
the extra competitive edge in the hostile environments known as Off-road
In 1997 one of our
customers called on us to help with an Audi-based automatic transaxle
featured in his Porter Class 1 race car. It was during this
relationship that a number of significant improvements to the automatic
transaxle, and to the TH400 transmission found in many of today's Trophy
Trucks, were developed. The Porter was later sold to McMillin Racing.
Corky McMillin saw the need for a more robust automatic transaxle to
handle the horsepower and torque that the V8's were delivering. Because
of Tony's earlier developmental improvements on the automatic transaxle,
Corky and Tony teamed up to create what is now known as the M1
Engineering demands only the best and our research and development rely
on continual feed back and suggestions from our race teams.
