Dave Klaput (F.RIZZO), Owner of Proformance Racing Transmissions (Est. 1991)

My goal has always been to build the best possible racing transmissions and to provide all the best possible parts available for superior track tested performance & reliability.

In the early 90′s when the “street car shoot out” & heavy weight door cars were quickly becoming the hottest type of racing around, the need for superior automatics was now an issue.  This was the starting point for us to achieve our goal.  Throughout the mid to late 90′s things progressed to a point where durability was the next task at hand.  This led us to the constant testing with research & development of new products to achieve our goal, thus providing you with the latest technology & best possible parts available.  In early 2000 through the present we have rededicated ourselves to even more R&D to ensure top quality with extreme durability to all of our products so that nothing is overlooked. This is our commitment to you.

We are also a leader in Turbo 400  transmission research and development with a never-ending pursuit to always improve on our championship winning combinations. With the introduction of the spragless option on our turbo 400 in 2002 we now have the capability to provide a ‘bulletproof’ transmission with options of gear ratios & even a clean neutral.  This allows us to tailor a combination for your specific needs. The edition of the 2 speed 400 along with the 2nd gear leaver option on three speed models has opened the door for an even greater verity of options.

Our Powerglide transmissions are available with just as many options to accommodate every type of boosted combo along with big H.P. nitrous. Weather you are racing in heads up pro tree or full tree brackets we can accomidate your every need.

Proformance Racing Transmissions is an authorized dealer for Griner transbrakes.  The fastest release trans-brakes on the market as well as Neal Chance Racing Converters the leader in torque converter technology.

Aside from transmissions I have & still do dedicate a lot of time to Top Fuel Racing both on & off the pavement.  This includes crewing on the Roger Way/Danny Dunn IHRA Top Fuel Dragster along with the Scotty Lumbert/Ray Lumbert IHBA Top Fuel Hydro & also the Bob Montgomery / Liquid Quicker IHBA Top Fuel Hydro.  These experiences have given us the ability to provide you with more knowledge & understanding to help bring you the most optimum combination possible.

Another service that we provide is combination developement & refinement. Our experience with designing & tuning nitrous oxide combos along with the latest E.F.I. systems has given us the knowledge to look into your current combination so that every last detail is attended to.
