Me and Saaber has both just changed out suspension to Hotbits Coilover and are using this opportunity to review this set of coilover for everyone's benefit The drive is not considered too hard as compared to Tein and any other coilovers. Comfort is still very much available. The ride is also not too bouncy. My first feel of the drive at the first cornering was The car also seems to respond pretty well now due to lack in body lag. Handling of the car is also very much 'tighter' now.
So far no one taken a ride in the car yet The settings is much harder than mine. I do not feel that my ass is countering anything on tight bends. But his bounces more than my car Tein would have killed my ass. D2 UK is having a promo going for 1. You mean you have not taken them for a ride in your car yet or you have not passed the test?

We keep it real.My name is Greg Ward, I am a guest writer for Aircooled. Some of you may know of me from my posts in several of the Volkswagen related forums on the Internet. I have been racing these terrific cars for the last 12 years and hope to relay some of my knowledge on how to make these cars handle, corner, and stop well.
The following discussion assumes you are starting with an unmodified Ball Joint front end, and a Swingaxle rear end. This rear suspension design is notorious for not wanting to go around a corner fast, and has special difficulty with high-speed handling. At my first opportunity I acquired a Beetle with a Balljoint front end, and Swingaxle rear.

I then installed a reasonably mild cc engine, running compression and dual Kadrons. It had more than enough grunt to move the Beetle reasonably well and my testing began.
I believe safety to be of paramount importance — anything designed to protect me in the event something bad happens is a good thing, in my opinion! With the type of power and speed I needed to compete, I felt it was necessary to have front disc brakes.
Another must have safety item! It might seem extremely obvious, but I believe it is often overlooked. What do brakes have to do with handling, you ask? The easiest thing for me to do was to replace all the brake components with new hardware. I saw no real point in re-machining old discs and drums when the price of good quality new components was reasonable and they were readily available. This also meant I actually knew what I was starting with from the very beginning, which eased my mind.
I retained the drum brake system in the rear, but also gave it a complete overhaul.

Hotbits DT1 coilover is a revolutionary product which brings an affordable, fully serviceable, higher performance coil over system to the market. The DT1 offers the performance-oriented driver the ability to fine-tune a vehicles suspension characteristics to better suit his or her individual driving style.
Aside from ride height adjustment the DT1 provides the user with a staggering step external damping adjustment.
This one way valve allows the simultaneous fine adjustment of compression and rebound adjustment. Most entry level adjustable dampers only adjust rebound. Damper adjustments are easily accessible while installed making track side adjustments a snap.
The DT1 uses standard 60mm coil springs meaning spring rates and lengths can be easily changed to meet different requirements. DT1 is available for Street, Race, Rally, and Drift applications and spring rates are fully customizable upon request. The two-way valve system permits easy and independent adjustment of compression and rebound damping rates while installed.
The DT2 includes 2 separate knobs to adjust rebound and compression independently. They include a heavy duty 68mm diameter bottom fitting and big 52mm chrome inverted shock tube for additional strength.โช๊คอัฟ Hot Bits byอู่ช่างทศ
They also have a 58mm strut housing for increased rigidity. For ease of installation and adjustability long external canisters are provided. These canisters also provide optimum gas volume and extra oil volume and shock stroke required to meet the demands of competition. The RSI damper includes 2-way damping adjustment with 35 clicks compression and 40 clicks for rebound as well as heavy duty Hot Bits top pivot steel bearing mounts and camber plates.
Similar to the DT1 and DT2 this coil over is fully serviceable and tunable and includes Hot Bits cold wound chrome silizium coil springs. Available in Race, Rally, and Drifting specifications.

Product Description DT1 Coilover Hotbits DT1 coilover is a revolutionary product which brings an affordable, fully serviceable, higher performance coil over system to the market.

Then you go over a giant jump into a tight right hand turn — fully unloaded to fully loaded in 2 seconds.
All of that energy has to go somewhere. This takes the single point of stress that is a narrow mm rod, turns the assembly inverted upside down and protects the damper. Now the side loading is spread over a 50mm housing and the damper piston is happily sealed from the elements.
The second way is to give the damper a higher volume of fluid with a separate reservoir. It takes longer to heat up more fluid and it cools outside of the strut. You can control how fast or slow that fluid moves into the reservoir giving you adjust-ability. I did. It sucked. I was making a pretty good show in rallycross and had survived my first two rally events on stock dampers when I started to work with Bilstein in Their sponsorship for us consisted of a set of inverted motorsport inserts.
Just the part on the left, not the whole strut on the right. It was up to us to have the strut housings machined as Bilstein did not make 1st Gen Neon struts. This was a miserable failure Read the complete Rim of the World story here.
The truth was the damper rod bolt shot out of the bottom of the strut INTO the CV joint on one side after the housing failed. I lost all the seals and bearings on all 4 struts, and my buddy Harry became my personal hero for rescuing us with stock spares.
As far as Bilstein is concerned, their equipment is awesome! It was the cheap housings that caused all the drama. Bilstein replaced the broken rod for me, later re-valved the rears, and those dampers are still on the rally car to this day! The combination being a set of Bilstein PT cruiser fronts that accept the motorsport inserts and a reworked set of rear housings. Even though it works, and was able to get us a championship winning setup, this hodge-podge mismatch of housings and inserts is not something I ever want to go through again.Posted by drivemusicnowNov 2, Featured Products from our Supporting Vendors.

Logging in will also remove many of the advertisements, along with this notice. Nov 2, 1. So here is my dilemma. I'm building a road race car, however I would like the most amount of "adaptability" as possible in my suspension setup, as I will be doing some other types of racing and street driving with the car. So we're going to assume custom rates and valving are needed for both setups.
From a design point of view, they're a better design. They also can be revalved in Michigan, which is helpful. Option 2 JIC Coilovers, "pre set up" however not tuned on car. Body Length Front Struts Adj. Most of the fast DSMs are on these. Mueller is a genius in his field, and will probably know what I would need without me having to play around with them. They have adjustable shock lengths, which is cool, however I don't know how much "better" that is rather than the helper spring system that HotBits uses.
I don't really like the secretiveness of not knowing what you're getting, nor do I like the fact that I have to sign a non-disclosure agreement before I am told what is being put on my own car. Also, the JICs adjust compression and rebound together, which I believe when looking for the best track setup, is not as helpful as a single adjustable setup like HotBits offers. Ehh, if i'm spending this much money I might as well go all the way.
Basically figure a that for the top mounts from hot bits, they're aboutfor only the front camber plates from RRE, they're about So lets go I want to hear your opinions about this. All I ask is that you not result to "blah blah tried and true" or "blah blah I've heard JICs have teh magic" I would really like a technical and as logical reasoning as possible.Hotbits sports shock absorbers is a great addition to your car if you are looking for better performance.
