After 33 years in the snowmobile after-market I'm calling it quits. I've enjoyed my many years in this industry starting out at Bender Racing in 1982 until now at Pioneer Performance. 20 years of racing, traveling the country with Tim Bender and the guys at Bender Racing, meeting and getting to know many people at Yamaha U.S., and designing and developing many products for Yamaha snowmobiles are just a few things that have highlighted the last 33 years. Throughout those years I've had so many loyal customers that have made it possible for me to continue doing what I enjoy. I'd like to everyone that's stuck by me all of these years for all of their  support.

Thank you,

Bruce Schrader

Pioneer Performance is was founded by long time Yamaha specialist Bruce Schrader. He began racing Yamaha snowmobiles in 1978 and continued until 1998. Bruce started in the Yamaha after-market in 1983 with Bender Racing where he remained for 11 years. In 1994 he was hired to start a new company, Maxximum Performance, he was the driving force behind the companies technology and growth before leaving in the fall of 2000. Bruce has been involved in suspension and shock service since the late 80's, at that time developing the specs for Fox-Yamaha after-market shocks. Yamaha introduced the aluminum bodied Kayaba shock on the '96 XT, from the start Bruce has been working with them, because of his experience Pioneer Performance is a service center for Yamaha Kayaba, Soqi (GYT-R), Ohlins, and we also service Fox Float, HPG, and most other snowmobile shocks. Our experience with all brands (we are currently a Yamaha, Polaris, and Ski-Doo dealer), has allowed us to come up with greatly improved shock valving for all Yamaha models. We have been using multi-staged and progressive valving shim stacks for several years in many Yamaha models.

Thank you,
