This kit is designed for serious race use and as such incorporates high and low speed bump control valves for further chassis fine tuning. By adjusting either bump or rebound damping the damping ratio can be adjusted, however the extra adjustment over the R1 opens up many more options during the setup process. For example the high speed damping can be kept soft so the car is not thrown by running kerbs, whilst not compromising body control in the transient cornering phase (turn in, applying power). The low speed control is more concerned with grip. Softening the low speed will increase the grip, useful if suffering from power-oversteer.
The NTR Race R3 remote reservoir (or piggyback in some specifications) kit provides yet another level of performance over the 1-way and 2-way kits, this is mainly due to the independent bump and rebound valving mechanisms and the low speed bleed reducing harshness and increasing grip further. Other benefits of remote reservoirs are higher fade resistance due to a higher oil volume, plus a larger surface area to radiate the heat to the atmosphere.
This kit includes Nitron's camber and castor adjustable pillow-ball top mounts (where applicable), these eliminate all rubber in the system and so ensure all road inputs are transmitted directly into the damper, maximising wheel control and providing optimum feedback to the driver's finger tips. The adjustable top plates also give the option to increase camber or castor angles for a more race orientated geo setup (for example Race/slick type tyres can permit use of more camber).
NOTE: To fit some cars this kit must be fitted with wheel spacers, Nitron can supply the required spacers if required. Please contact Nitron for further details. Image for illustration purposes only.
Custom spring and valving requirements can be specified.
