At Hi-Torque Performance, we are fortunate enough to be staffed by some of the most experienced people in the industry. Several members of our team have previously owned their own workshops, and know the quality of service and workmanship our customers not only want, but very much deserve.
Kent Dalton ''Damage Dalton''
Business Owner & Sales Manager
Kent is the original ‘face’ of Hi-Torque Performance. His role is not only the overall running of the business, but facilitating the ongoing research and development required, to ensure Hi-Torque Performance continues to offer the most reliable, high quality products and packages, in a constantly developing industry. Kent also puts continuous time into managing the way the business is both marketed and branded, to protect their excellent reputation within the industry, and promote their skills on a wider stage.
A key member of the ‘Hotwheels Stuntz Inc’ team in his spare time, Kent is now gaining recognition for the business, not only from sponsorship and engineering aspects, but building a profile as one of two main stunt drivers in the Hotwheels Drift Utes. With this under his belt, Kent has now propelled the Hi-Torque brand directly onto the global stage.
Kent is still very much a part of the day-to-day sales team, however he is also presently focusing on the growth of their rapidly expanding business, all while exploring ways to be innovative in a competitive marketplace, and build new opportunities and profile.
Dallas Dalton ''Dal-boy''
Dyno Tuner & Engine Builder (also owner)
Dallas is a fully qualified engine builder, whose skills have been proven countless times, by the quality of vehicles Hi-Torque has repeatedly produced. When he’s not assembling engines in our purpose built room, or swinging spanners with other team members on the workshop floor, he is working alongside Kent with research and development projects.
Dallas’ ‘think outside the box’ attitude, has lead the team to create and test some of the most innovative performance combinations in the industry. Not to mention, his skills have been required behind the scenes at widely publicised events, on seriously high profile vehicles.
Many will even know Dallas’ own project vehicle, that has housed several engine combinations and characters. You will be hard-pressed to find someone who can not only build engines to the standard Dallas produces, but also has the on-track skills Dallas has, to successfully test them.
