Progress Product/Service Testimonial:
Progress has been the suspension facility of choice for all Bisimoto Engineering projects, and many successful road race, time attack, drag and salt flat teams in the US and overseas. The Bisimoto Engineering WagoVan is now one of the most popular sport compact Hondas on the planet, and the handling of the vehicle is absolutely astonishing.
