AMS Performance’s heritage from the very beginning has been steeped in competitive auto racing. Foundationally, our determination to develop solutions that perform at the boundary of what is possible within any given set of sanctioned rules is what has driven us to set record after record and win championship after championship across a diverse range of motorsports.
We maintain this same ethos when developing automotive products intended for street driven vehicles, by producing EPA-compliant performance parts as well as continually striving for CARB EO exemption whenever possible. However, some products are built with the sole intention of motorsports usage, and as such the purchasing of them must be regulated to off-highway use within the United States. To accomplish this, all non-CARB exempted AMS products are prohibited for sale within the state of California, and all non-EPA compliant AMS products are exclusively intended for off-highway race-only applications. Only by completing an AMS Race Waiver form will these regulated race-only products be available to purchase from AMS Performance or through one of our US-based Authorized Dealers. International customers and Authorized Dealers are not affected by this policy.
To aid in the education of our customers to this new policy, we have now added emissions related categorization to all our automotive products to show the intended use of each product and their subsequent purchasing requirements. All of these classifications are listed below for your review, as well as displayed on each of the affected product pages on our website.
In order for a US-based retail consumer to purchase any race-only designated product, or for any California resident to purchase a non-CARB exempted automotive product from AMS, they must complete our AMS Race Waiver, which is prompted during the checkout process. This form authorizes your account to purchase these products for off-highway usage once electronically signed via DocuSign. Completing this waiver is a one-time automated process, as the AMS Race Waiver will be automatically applied to your account for all future orders of components for the same vehicle.
