Two more models get the Öhlins Road and Track treatment as the legendary suspension brand finalize damper kits for the Chevrolet Camaro and Mazda MX-5 Miata.
Both offering their own unique style cues, the two cars have one thing in common, their owners appreciate performance, which is why these new Road and Track kits will appeal to many who use the cars for both track days or just precision driving on the road.
The Camaro typifies the American muscle car and has become popular in Europe and the rest of the World as a usable version of some of the more outrageous versions of this genre. Pumping out nearly 300bhp the Camaro has never been short of ‘horses’ and now owners can match that to sublime handling, to lay the power down to the tarmac more smoothly.
A totally different sort of machine, the Mazda MX-5 is a compact two seater Japanese mini sportscar that proves you can have big fun in a small package! The Miata is a limited edition version that offers cool upgrades for the true MX-5 aficionado. A car that is regularly used on trackdays, the Miata now has a suspension option that will mean it is as home on the circuit and highway, as its name suggests!
The system has been created to deliver optimum grip and stability for maximum performance combined with a smooth, comfortable setting for the road. The feeling for a driver is ‘plush’, stable handling on the street with good traction and superior grip and performance allowing for a fast lap on track.
The dampers feature Öhlins’ DFV technology, the Dual Flow Valve damping system, which provides optimal wheel control and bump absorption in even the most challenging road or track conditions. The DFV is designed to keep the wheels in contact with the road to maximise power delivery, cornering and braking aspects.
Aesthetically these lightweight shocks offer top end motorsport looking quality, matched by the functionality of external components created from high-grade aerospace aluminum, hard-anodised and protected against corrosion. The external parts have passed a harsh ISO salt spray corrosion test, and the dampers are all fully rebuildable.
The Öhlins Road&Track damper kits provide both spring preload and damping adjustment front and rear, with a lowered ride height setting (20mm lower on both models). Plus, you get a two-year warranty on all Öhlins units. The shocks use the standard top-mounts, meaning they can be fitted easily without additional modifications.
