Over the years he met a lot of guys who shared this same hobby and passion, and one group especially stood out. These were the guys at Killer Customs of British Columbia, Canada. They asked Roger if he would like to work with them as sales manager of their recently acquired company, Speed Tech. Rodger saw this as a great way to fulfill his midlife crisis desires, so he agreed. He also saw this as an opportunity to rebuild his longterm love.

He started with Speed Tech's "Track Time" package that includes a new front subframe, torque arm rear suspension, and all the goodies between the two to make the car handle. The car is going to be better than ever, but still the same.
