Tilton Racing

In 1972, McLane (Mac) and Adelle Tilton founded Tilton Engineering in El Segundo, California. Their mission was to supply innovative, high-quality products at fair prices and with sound advice. Mac utilized his vast racing and machining experience, most notably as Crew Chief for the 1971 & 1972 Trans Am championship winning Brock Racing Enterprises (BRE) team, to develop some of the most innovative products of their time. Adelle’s excellent business sense and experience helped to insure the long-term future of Tilton Engineering.

As Tilton Engineering’s reputation grew, demand for its products increased. Tilton relocated in 1979 to Buellton, California where it is still located today. A new custom-built headquarters was completed in 2017, which includes the full machine shop, assembly area, warehouse, office space and a fully integrated quality assurance department.

Of the numerous innovations Tilton has brought to the racing world, most recognized is the carbon/carbon racing clutch. Tilton’s was the first carbon/carbon clutch to be used in F1, winning its first race at the 1987 Detroit Grand Prix in Aryton Senna’s Lotus-Honda. The technology developed by Tilton can be found in most carbon/carbon racing clutches of today. Tilton Engineering was awarded a US Patent and the Louis Schwitzer Award for technology found in this race industry changing innovation. Today, Tilton continues to introduce innovative products to the racing industry each year.

Engineering/Manufacturing/Quality Control
Tilton Engineering believes that having Engineering, Manufacturing and Quality Control within the same building is the best way to insure the highest quality products are delivered to customers.

After machining, products are quality checked using Browne and Sharpe Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM) and tested using proprietary equipment.
