Vetting the Vet's Vettes – A Look Inside MTI Racing
Reese Cox cut his teeth behind the wheel of a Corvette, and his experience shows. In 1993, during the heyday of his time as team manager for Tommy Morrison Racing leading ZR-1 Corvettes through the 24 HRS of Daytona and other IMSA series, Reese founded MTI (Motorsports Technologies Incorporated) Racing. The 1998 SCCA World Challenge Rookie of the Year knows a thing or two about making these sleek bowties fast and powerful, and he was kind enough to open the doors of their shop to MotoIQ. Inside, we found a lot more than just some fast coupes.
MTI does a lot of mail order business, and it all happens here. Don't let this humble desk fool you. MTI services customers worldwide, and was in talks with owners in both Scotland and Sweden while I was in the office. Mail order is only a part of what they do.
As you can see, MTI has a history of doing things right when it comes to the Corvette platform, and many of the premiere Corvette publications have featured the shop numerous times.
A small showroom showcases a few of the parts that MTI provides to customers, but every corner of the space displays something unique to MTI.
For example, MTI custom manufactures shifters for various Corvette and GM platforms, and has partnered with UUC on other shifter applications as well. What you may find really interesting is the other “shifter” option they have.
