For twenty years, QMP Racing has been providing high quality race engine building and machine shop services to the greater Los Angeles area and to remote customers across the nation and around the world. Brad Lagman opened QMP racing engines in 2000, bringing more than 18 years of in-depth knowledge and engine building experience dating back to 1987. He started QMP out of his garage with limited equipment and having to rely on others for machine work. Steady progress followed and when things things began to get busy with four people working in only 400sq. ft. of space, a larger shop was inevitable.
By 2003, Lagman teamed with Mike Consolo, to move to an 1800sq. ft. shop in Chatsworth, California. He knew the only way to succeed was to have the ability to perform all of their work in house. The shop is filled with numerous amounts of tools and machinery for every type of operation. Much of the machinery has all of the latest technology. The Flow Bench, Valve Spring Tester, Balancer and Cam Doctor are all computerized. The ability to have a large amount of the machinery computer controlled has afforded QMP the ability to process information and job requirements more quickly and efficiently. QMP also makes use of exclusive techniques in the development process of machining. These kinds of methods are utilized during bore honing, valve jobs and during balancing. A recent example is Brad's development of a fixture tool to hold a Profilometer stable in a cylinder bore.
