"Dave Morgan is years ahead of his time because he's so willing to help racers with their suspension problems. I honestly believe that he is the best at what he does."
Gary Reese, Chassis Builder
Sheffield Lake, Ohio

"Before I went to Dave's seminar, I was afraid to even touch my ladder bar rear suspension. Since then, I have gone through the car and picked up two-tenths in the quarter, improved my 60-foot times and my reaction times are killer. I am no longer afraid to tune on my suspension and I'm bringing home a lot more round money."
John Wooley
Reynolds, Ga.

"I had a pretty violent Altered that I ran at Beaver Springs Dragway. Not only did Dave show me how to calm the car down and go straight, I learned a ton about fourlinks. After that, I was voted 'Most Improved Driver' at Beaver Springs."
Scott Richenbach
Lebanon, Pa.

"I had a pretty unique combination and I think going to Dave's seminar shortened the time it took to sort out the car. He has a unique ability to draw pictures in your mind, and then make them move. I think he's the best teacher in drag racing."
Tony Melvedt
Concord, NC

In 1982 he was chosen as a 'Hi Riser' by Car Craft Magazine. After three national seminar tours, Morgan moved to Baltimore to work for ATI Transmissions where he complimented his chassis tuning experience with knowledge about torque and its relationship to suspension work.

The desire to return to the chassis industry was rekindled when he was offered a position at Zeeker Performance in Hicksville, Ohio. As the General Manager there, Morgan sponsored drag racings first ever
