Curtis Pepe, an engineer by trade, started racing with his sons in 1998. From the beginning he took a scientific approach to improving the handling and speed of his cars. Careful note taking while experimenting with different parameters combined with many laps at different tracks gained success. Curtis drew on his training as an engineer to analyze the forces on the chassis and suspension. Adjusting the geometry of existing chassis designs could only gain so much. It was time to head in a new direction.
In 2001 Curtis used his experience designing structures and vector analysis to design his own chassis. The Storm Chassis was born. The angle, bend and placement of each piece of tubing was analyzed to give the most efficiency. The new chassis offered greater structural stiffness through increased triangulation. The stronger and stiffer chassis allowed the car to go faster by allowing the car's suspension to do its job without wasting energy with chassis flex.
The first car debuted July 2001 at the Eastern Grands with a new track record in Light 160. In 2002 ten storm cars showed up for the Eastern Grands in Topeka and all ten made it to the A main. Storm drivers brought home two fast times and three A-main wins in Light 160, Heavy 160, and Light Mod. This was an outstanding accomplishment in Storm's history and motivated us to take this so called homemade car to the next level. Today Storm has sold over 350 cars in only a ten year time spend.
