INNOVATE TO DOMINATE
Traction Products is a family owned and operated company with over 56 years experience in the racing industry.
Originally founded in 1963 by Peter and Albert Weismann to produce the Weismann Locker, Traction Products quickly became the Skunk Works of the racing world designing and manufacturing transaxles and transmissions for race cars.
Weismann Lockers and Weismann Drivetrains have dominated every form of racing they have raced in, from Formula 1 to Baja.
The need for high performance drivetrains was not just confined to the auto racing industry. Over the years Traction Products evolved into other forms of racing, while also working with the Military and OEM Automotive companies.
In 1997 Weismann Marine was founded to produce Out Drives and Semi-Automatic Transmissions for the world of Off Shore boat racing.
Currently led by Michele Weismann and sons Patrick and Christopher, the Weismann family continues to innovate, design and manufacture high-end, custom drivetrains for land, sea and air.
Based in Costa Mesa California, Weismann Marine and Traction Products are open M-F
8am - 5pm.
