Their produced parts provide a statistically better acceleration performance boost depending on the installed component and are highlighted with a blue tint.
All of Kestrels' parts are of Race level rarity meaning that they are uncommon parts that and are not readily available to any user. They are amongst the lower-middle category available for improving vehicle performance. They provide each of their parts in either Improved, Sport or Tuned quality.
Parts produced by Kestrel are best suited for vehicles with a very wide power band between the maximum output of horsepower and torque such as an I4, I5 or I6 engines. They may also be reliant on a turbo for increased torque. Handling parts will improve the vehicles ability to accelerate and decelerate at the expense of top speed.
These parts can be acquired either from the Lucky Draw available upon the completion of any event or by purchasing Silver Performance Card Packs.
All of their parts were offered as part of a tiered reward for completing a certain number of events during a community challenge. They were made available for Cash within the Performance Shop section of the Safehouse through a staggered release.

Engines produced by Kestrel provide an increased amount of torque at the peak output of the vehicle for increased acceleration.
Forced Induction kits produced by Kestrel provide an increased performance output for lower rev range turbo-chargers. They provide better acceleration by increasing output at a lower rev range but reducing output at a higher rev range.
Transmissions produced by Kestrel provide an increase to acceleration for a vehicle by utilising a shorter set of gear ratios. This is done at the expense of a shorter final drive and resulting in a lower top speed.
Suspension components produced by Kestrel provide a stiffer vehicle chassis with reduced body roll for better acceleration. This is done at the expense of a possibility for increased oversteer but this can be neutralised with a consistently understeering vehicle.
Brake kits produced by Kestrel provide an extremely effective and unbiased braking ability at the expense of an increased possibility of locking up under breaking.
Tyres produced by Kestrel provide an increase of traction for vehicles that produce a great deal of torque. Fitting these tyres can increase the possibility of oversteer.
