KW 2-way Clubsport coilovers
IStreet-legal race track performance! KW Clubsport provides cutting-edge motorsports technology for the sportiest road vehicles with a sports-tire setup for use on the race track and road. KW Clubsport was developed specifically for customers who want to use their road vehicle on the race track, for example at tourist drives, sports driver courses, or other track sport events and need it to be street-legal so that they can drive their car on public roads. The setup was specially designed for the Nordschleife and the use of sports tires. The height-adjustment possibilities enable an adaptation of the wheel loads. The before mentioned adjustment possibilities combined with the separately adjustable damping technology for the compression and rebound stage (TVR-A and TVC-A technology) enable customized setups appropriate for the vehicle weight, the tire characteristics, various road conditions and driving conditions.
Setup – facory-set pre-configured damper setup with adjustable rebound damping
The basic setup of the KW Clubsport 2-way coilover kit, which is perfectly adapted to the Nordschleife, allows you to individually adjust your sports car to the desired street-tire setup due to the numerous setting options. The separately in rebound and compression stage adjustable dampers with their “TVR-A”- and “TVC-A”-technology allow an extensive damper setup. So it is easy to directly influence the steering behavior, the directional stability, the tire grip and handling characteristics for a safe controllability at the limit of driving dynamics. Depending on the vehicle type, the KW Clubsport 2-way coilovers are supplied with aluminum unibal top mounts.
TVR-A rebound stage damping (Twin Valve Rebound – Adjustable):
The two-step, patented “TVR-A” technology enables the small volume to flow through an adjustable, conical low-speed bypass in the case of slow damper speeds, while in the case of higher piston speeds, the main rebound stage valve opens for the large volume flows. This provides a big improvement in terms of ride comfort without influencing the high-speed in the safety-relevant range. There are 16 precise clicks available for individual settings, so you can choose between more comfort or more body control.
TVC-A compression stage damping (Twin Valve Compression – Adjustable):
With 12 precise clicks the adjustable compression stage valve (“TVC-A”-technology) can increase or decrease the cross section in the low-speed valve to achieve either more or less compression stage damping. At the same time, in the case of sudden high piston speeds, the spring pre-tensioned needle valve and the spring pre-tensioned main valve open to their maximum valve cross section, to avoid with its blow-off characteristics undesired progressive force increase in the high-speed range. This allows a better bracing of the vehicle body and at the same time at high wheel acceleration offering more comfort than with conventional valve technology. The compression stage damper setting is always supplied in combination with a separate rebound stage setting, as only an independent 2-way damper setting allows a true performance optimization.
The KW 2-way Clubsport and KW 3-way Clubsport coilover kits allows a maximum or individual lowering within the tested adjustment range. Due to the dirt-resistant trapezoidal thread and the polyamide threaded ring, the continuously lowering can be varied quickly and easily, even after years.
The benchmark for coilovers
As with all KW coilovers, the engineers at KW develop in extensive test cycles on the Nürburgring Nordschleife and in our test center on the KW 7-post rig the vehicle-specific KW damper setup estimated by car enthusiasts worldwide. So you will experience your car even more directly and dynamically with a KW coilover kit.
After all, you do not buy just any coilover kit, but a KW coilover kit that has been specially developed and adapted for your vehicle type. KW as manufacturer exclusively uses own resources, high-quality components and the same damper technology as high-volume manufacturers. With the KW 2-way and 3-way Clubsport kit, the roll and pitch movements of the vehicle body are reduced during compression, so you benefit from an unadulterated directness and a sportier handling while driving.
