Wyatt Radke and Radke Services
Established in 2010, Radke Services LLC is the result of Wyatt Radke's dedication to the VW aftermarket and Performance industry.
Radke has been involved with the aircooled motors since the early 1970's working at such business's as Dick Roy's Repair in Chino, Ca. and German Auto Haus in Oxnard.
Although Radlke pursued his passion of Drag Racing in the Nitro Funny and Top Fuel Dragster classes, for most of his adult life and made a career out of it, he always maintained his love for the sand dunes and VW sandrails. After the NHRA seasons would come to an end you would find Wyatt out in the sand dunes with his family and friends cruising the sand in their VW powered machines. Of course even the casual sand car needs a good amount of power and Radke's are no exception. Big CC motors and Performance cylinder heads kept him aware of the current developements in the industry.
As his racing career started to wind down and racing became more of a hobby, Wyatt wanted to re-establish himself in the VW market, Including installing a set of his own designed carburetors on a motor for the famed BUG-IN 34 event and driving the DALCORP, VW powered Manx drag car to the Top Eliminator Title. Wyatt then looked to his VW background for a possible avenue of employment. Getting back involved with the industry allowed him to utilize his knowledge of high performance gained over the years in other areas. Working with several manufacturers on projects for the stock and performance VW parts eventually landed him an invitation to work at EMPI, Inc. an established VW aftermarket manufacturer in Anaheim, CA. There, Wyatt was a key part of research and developement. Hundreds of the company's part numbers are a result of Radke's work. But not always in a good way. After 5 1/2 years Wyatt became tired of the corporate chain of command at EMPI and set out to change the course of his career once again.
An accomplished Professional Drag Race Driver and Crew Chief, Off Road racer, including building a car and finishing the BAJA 1000, Sand Dune enthusiast, engine builder and designer, Radke has always kept up to date on what the industry's, NOT JUST VW, but all forms of vehicles, including RV's are asking for, and now he has put his talents to work as a manufacturer for himself. Anything produced by Radke Services has been well thought out and tested before it is released for distribution. Any parts for sale from our company made by other sources will always be quality products sold with condfidence.
We hope that you will look to Radke Services as a viable source whenever you are looking for automotive parts.
