Hello - I am the owner of Survival Motorsports -- Barry Rabotnick.  I have been a
well established performance industry insider for the past twenty years.  Working
with a dedicated team of performance professionals, we at Survival strive to meet
your desires for performance, technical support and value.

I have worked in and with several of the largest and most prominent manufacturers
in the business.  I managed the performance parts program for Federal-Mogul for
twelve years prior to starting up Survival, and was responsible for all products sold
under the Speed-Pro and Fel-Pro performance labels.  During my tenure at
Federal-Mogul I was involved with or responsible for numerous developments that
changed the performance industry - including the now famous Hellfire piston rings,
the relaunched Speed-Pro Powerforged piston line, and launching Fel-Pro's line of
MLS gaskets.

Prior to F-M I worked with Holley Performance products, helping to bring them into
numerous new markets including fleet and marine, and representing them at
innumerable races and industry events.  I have a strong and documented technical
background in all facets of automotive performance engines and components.

Over these years I have been referenced and quoted as an industry and technical
expert in virtually every conceivable automotive publication - - including Hot Rod,
Car Craft, Chevy High Performance, Mustangs and Fords, Mopar, Performance
Racing Industry, Jasper Engine's newsletter, and the newsletter for the Automotive
Engine Rebuilder's association.

I am also well known for building serious FE Ford engines.  Recent engines I've
assembled have been the subject of comprehensive articles in Hot Rod magazine
(July 2004), and have been competitive in the Jeg's Engine Master's Challenge
(October 2005) where we made over 750HP on 91 octane.  Use our wealth of
experience and contacts to help get you the best power for your performance dollar!
