T-Works Progressive Damper System

T-Works Progressive Damper System

T-Works have introduced their Progressive Damper System for a range of electric touring car kits. Adapting a common design that is popular especially when racing on asphalt tracks, the system utilises bushings with triangular-shaped openings as well as plain pistons. The bushings are inserted into the shock housings and the plain pistons are used in place for the drilled standard ones while the triangular openings in the tubes allowing the oil to bypass the piston on compression. With ongoing compression the opening above the piston becomes smaller, resulting in a progressive, harder dampening that can lead to faster corner speeds and improved stability. Included in each set are four bushings and four plain pistons and the system is available for the HPI Pro5, Xray T4’16 as well as the Yokomo BD7-2015 and BD7-2016.
