1999-2002 Silvia Version DR (Drag Race) Damper System by Ksport
The Ksport Version DR coilover system is specially engineered for drag racing applications. With proven performance on the drag strip, the Ksport Version DR system will reduce your E.T. and 60 ft times. The DR system is built on our race proven Version RR coilover, with internal changes to accommodate the rigors of drag racing. All Version DR drag racing coilovers will be custom valved for drag racing, with appropriate spring rates chosen to maximize traction and regulate weight transfer.
As with all Ksport coilovers, the Version DR Drag Race coilover allows for 36 levels of damping adjustment, spring pre-load adjustment, and height adjustment without sacrificing shock travel. The electro-plated steel shock bodies resist rust and corrosion, and all mounts are constructed from 6061-T6 aluminum for superior strength.
Spring rates and shock valving specific for drag racing
Carefully chosen spring rates and shock valving to optimize weight transfer while launching. They design each kit differently depending on if your car is FWD, RWD or AWD. Not intended for daily driving use.
36 way adjustable damping
All Ksport coilovers offer 36 levels of damping which allow you the ability to perfectly dial in your coilover system. Set damping to full soft for a nice comfortable cruising setting for normal driving.
Collars and upper mounts made from 6061 aluminum with T6 for increased hardness
Their spring perches, locking collars, top mounts and some lower mounts are made from high quality 6061 aluminum. Benefits include excellent strength and aluminum helps reduce weight.
Adjustable spring perch for height adjustment
Some vehicles have a separate rear shock and spring. In the coilover industry they call this a ?hi-low kit?. In this case you will have height adjustment via the spring perch and the lower mount of the shock. Vehicles with this type of set up can still go as low or lower than true coilovers.
Adjustable lower mount allowing maximum suspension travel
Most of their coilovers feature the ability to adjust your ride height without affecting the shock and spring travel. This way you can set your desired ride height without having to worry about bottoming out the shock.
Camber adjustment on many models
Many of their applications that have pillowball upper mounts also have camber adjustability. This is extremely helpful when you need to dial in your camber for vehicle alignment purposes. This also eliminates the need for a separate camber kit. NOTE: Camber adjustment is not available on all models with pillowball upper mounts.
All metal pillowball for added strength and responsiveness
A step up from our Kontrol Pro coilovers, the heavy duty all steel pillowball adds more strength and better steering response. You may experience slightly more noise with this type of pillowball, which is completely normal when compared to oem suspension where noise is reduced by using rubber parts. Our patented new top nut and bearing system helps combat noise while turning at slow speeds unlike other coilovers on the market.
Pillowball top mount for increased steering feel
Many of their applications for vehicles with McPherson type suspension will have pillowball upper mounts. Their patented new bearing design helps combat noise while turning unlike many other coilovers on the market. Steering feel and response is improved with pillowball upper mounts.
Monotube high pressure design reduces oil leakage
All of their coilovers use Monotube shocks which dissipate heat better, allows finer damping adjustment and requires a more expensive design process compared to twin tube shocks.
Electroplated body for added protection from corrosion and rust
To help prevent corrosion and rust from the elements of nature, all of their coilovers are electroplated with zinc. We also include an anti-rust paste packet with our systems that can be applied to certain key areas of the coilover for added protection.
Dust boot to protect damper seal
Dust boots are standard on all coilovers. We also integrate the bump stop inside the dust boot. This is more efficient and is less likely to crumble to pieces and deteriorate like other company?s designs.
12 month limited warranty
Slide Kontrol coilovers come standard with an 12 month warranty which covers manufacturer defects.
