Motorsport and Performance

Cars are our passion at AW Automatics, we have a long history of delivering transmission solutions for performance and race vehicles.

Our Performance upgrades include Shift Kits, Hi-Stall Converters, Frictions & Bands, Heavy Duty Drums and Torrington Bearings.

If you have a high performance vehicle with a standard Transmission, you may be looking for improved performance, better gear shifting qualities or reliability against breakages.

Whether you have a Street Car, Drag Car, or Off-Road vehicle, an upgraded Performance Transmission will contain racing components which increase strength, reliability and torque capacity.
