Cincinnati, Ohio USA-based Weasel RallySport is pleased to announce their recent partnership with Maddog STS of Silver Lake, Wisconsin. Maddog STS will be the official supplier of gear selectors for the team for the remainder of the 2011 RallyAmerica season and beyond.

After scoring a dramatic, come-from-behind National victory at Susquehannock Trail Performance Rally, Driver Chris Greenhouse conducted some recent testing with the Maddog short-throw shifter in his Group 2-spec 1995 Plymouth Neon.

“We did some testing last week with the Maddog shifter and I found it to be quite superior to what we had been using previously,” said Chris in a recent interview. “Chuck Gregory of Maddog had modified one of his existing designs to our specifications by adding a slightly taller rod. This modification, in conjunction with his existing design for reduced shifter throw distance means that our gear changes are significantly faster now than before. And since the new design incorporates an easily adjustable shift rod brake, transmission wear will be reduced as well. Our transmission takes enough punishment on rough gravel roads, and anything that increases our reliability can quickly make the difference between winning and losing races. Reliability and consistency over the competition is what helped us score our biggest win ever at STPR this month and we can’t give enough thanks to Chuck Gregory at Maddog STS for his support.”

Chris also commented on the Maddog STS product itself. “This is a very well-built piece and a lot of thought has gone into its design and construction. Anyone who races or engages in spirited street driving could realize immediate tangible gains from the Maddog short throw shifter.”

Chris is the defending three-time RallyAmerica Central Region Group 2 Champion and he is currently leading the points for the class this year, too. He has taken his non-turbo 1995 Neon to three RallyAmerica 2WD National podium finishes this year, including his recent win at Susquehannock Trail in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania, USA on June 3-4.

In addition to Maddog STS, Chris and the Weasel RallySports team would like to thank EBC Brakes, Angry Sheep Motorsports, JayRacing, EZ Auto Accessories, and Silco Fire Protection for their continued support during the 2011 season.
