    Fresh from the Phillip Island track day the Hilux was already locked and loaded in the trailer for WTAC the very next weekend. World time attack has grown at an amazing rate.

    I feel like 2016 has been nothing new, what it has been though is rewarding, I fought off the urge for more projects and focused on the ones I currently have. Tying up loose ends in the garage has been one thing, the website has been another. The name “Engineered to Slide” was coined just […]

  • ETS Support Parts – Pit Kart

    As a kid I always wanted a go kart, that never really happened and I went straight from motorcross to cars. So when the time came to build something to carry my wheels and tyres to the changer and set up a hot pit with my tools I thought what better time than to build […]
