New Products and Project Vehicles, Fall 2019

Fall 2019 Update
We’ve been busy this year working on a number of new projects. We have upgraded our website with a clean and capable mobile-friendly homepage, improved product pages, updated listings and Instagram feed. We are currently working on numerous SEO enhancements. We have updated our B2B product matrix with complete product information. On the manufacturing side, we are in the process of expanding our manufacturing capability with additional machinery, machine controls, and hard tooling. 

Project Vehicles

The Team Honda R&D Civic Type-Rs are getting ready for the grueling 25 Hours of Thunder Hill Endurance event. For the third year running, Progress has equipped the Honda R&D team with sway bars for their two-car team. These race-prepped Type-Rs are rolling on adjustable Progress Sway bars and our new HD zero-deflection end links. The race weekend is Dec 7-8 so stay tuned. These vehicles are in the Honda booth @ SEMA 2019.

Dennis Trevino’s 2019 Civic Type-R SCCA Solo D-Street, a new regional champion. He's a seasoned Solo competitor and has been very hands-on with the development of this new sway bar project. 

Dennis reported "The rotation was just right and I didn't have to try and make it rotate, it just rotated where I needed it too unprompted... With my champ tires it felt amazing! I took first by quite a wide margin." 

John Burrows’ 2007 Civic Si 8th Gen 
SCCA Solo STX. He is a three-time regional champion, all Progress-equipped. John is running our "street" CS coil-over system and 24mm rear  adjustable sway bar. Add JB's exceptional talent behind the wheel and a set of autocross tires for a winning STX setup!
