DR1- Men's 1 Piece Custom Drag Suit
The DR1 is the "NO COMPROMISE" professional Drag racing suit designed for maximum comfort and flexibility without sacrificing safety. This custom made suit is constructed of a single layer of 1.4mm competition weight cowhide. All the zippers and hardware are long lasting brass. The mandarin collar has a Velcro closure as a standard feature. The wrist and ankles are raw edge leather construction to reduce the bulk in your gloves and boots. There is a small pocket (stamped with Vanson's unit numberfor identification) on the wind flap of the jacket for time slips. The ankle zippers, neck tab and fly zipper have a velcro closure tab flap to keep those zippers in the safety locked position. As with all of our racing suits we have customizing options that can be added for small additional cost.
The two most asked for options with this suit are the Pro4 (4 scale backpad) and Grind. The Pro4 back pad attaches into the jacket and can be adjusted for comfort or removed. Grind is a Vanson exclusive sandwich of extra leather and Powerstretch in the shoulders, elbow/forearm, hips, knees and seat. The effectiveness of Grind has been tested at 225mph; if you want to know how it works just ask Chris Hand from Redneck Express. We are the only company that offers Grind in a drag racing suit. Input from many riders has been instrumental in the development of this suit; We thank Dave Schultz, Jim McClure, Steve Johnson,Ian King, Larry Mcbride, Angelle Savoie, Matt Smith.
