Professional race engine builders approached Vibratech TVD, parent company to Fluidampr. The challenge was to apply durable, industry proven viscous damper technology to motorsports. It was the mid-80’s. Fluidampr was born.

Today, racing demands a quality crankshaft damper that can protect engines across a broad RPM range. It needs to perform when you add horsepower and increase the temperatures under the hood. Racing pushes innovation in our design and manufacturing process. These advancements are passed on to our parent company, Vibratech TVD, and applied to exotic automotive, marine performance, and defense industry OEM applications.

OEM factory race teams and grassroots Saturday night racers have made us the leading viscous harmonic balancer in motorsports. Hot rodders and restorers trust Fluidampr. Performance Diesel competitors value our diesel heritage and high power experience. Import owners like how we optimize damper design and performance to their engine’s needs. We are all American made, shipped word-wide, and proud of it.
