A Mesa, AZ-based Ultra4 desert racing team, LetzRoll Offroad Racing recently captured a top ten finish in the Ultra4 American Rock Sports Challenge. The team depends on high-performance ESAB equipment for all its welding and cutting.
"It all starts with the welder. Everything we do, on all of our cars, is based off of that foundation," said McLaughlin. "ESAB really tailors their product to the end user that wants high quality. The four vehicles in our racing circuit take an incredible beating. We need them to be battle-ready and we rely on the tough, proven performance of ESAB equipment to make them so."
From pistons to painting, welding to wheel balancing, dyno and track testing, Two Guys Garage covers virtually every aspect of vehicle repairing, customizing and restoring. Hosts Kevin Byrd and Willie B. perform product demonstrations and installations on a wide variety of import and domestic cars and light trucks, showing viewers the right way to execute modifications with hands-on projects throughout the season.
"I've been around a lot of different welding equipment on fab projects over the years, but I was really blown away by the high quality ESAB welders and plasma cutter we just picked up for our studio," said Two Guys Garage host, Kevin Byrd. "They are second to none; 110 years of welding history definitely shines through!"
