Owner of Detroit Speed Acquires C&R Racing Driveline Division


Automotive performance entrepreneur and longtime racer Kyle Tucker has acquired the driveline division of C&R Racing (South).

Located in Mooresville, North Carolina, with headquarters in Indianapolis, C&R Racing (South) is a division of PWR Performance Products, known for performance-quality radiators, transmissions and driveline components.

Tucker is the owner and co-founder of automotive aftermarket chassis and suspension parts manufacturer Detroit Speed Inc.

Now under the same leadership as the Detroit Speed family of products and services, C&R Racing’s driveline division has been renamed GearFX Driveline LLC. GearFX will operate independently and retain its original C&R Racing staff.

“Throughout my relationship with C&R Racing, they have proven their reliability and commitment to quality through their long-time racing expertise,” said Tucker, who also serves as president of Detroit Speed. “Now, I’m excited to bring that knowledge and racing technology to the street market.”

GearFX produces quiet, high-quality rear gears. The company hand-picks each component based on track-tested quality and function and assigns a unique serial number and birth certificate to each new unit, according to a press release, allowing customers to know exactly when and by whom the component was built.

“Detroit Speed has always been known for pushing the envelope in the high-performance aftermarket,” said Jeff “Fuzzy” Horton, general manager and technical director for GearFX. “This new combination of driveline specialization is just another great addition to the Detroit Speed arsenal, and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it.”

While maintaining the foundation of service, quality and people that C&R Racing built, GearFX plans to expand its current menu of services by offering REM polishing, dyno break-in and quiet, durable gears, the release stated. The company is also interested in expanding its reach into the off-road market and other new areas.
