KW automotive has developed the new KW Clubsport 3-way for the GR Yaris that is suitable for everyday life and racetrack use. The Clubsport coilover, made of stainless steel, applies new valve technology so that balancing reservoirs are not needed.
Thanks to new multi-valve design, the dampers are separately adjustable in high-speed compression with 14 exact clicks and in the low-speed compression with 13 clicks, as well as in low-speed rebound with 16 clicks. This enables track day enthusiasts the freedom to individually adjust the suspension to the tires, rims and layout of the track. In addition, the KW Clubsport coilover has unibal top mounts of aluminum to adjust the camber on the front axle. As part of the technical approvements, the compact all-wheel-drive sports car can be steplessly lowered from 25 – 45 millimeters on both axles.
The adjustable low-speed and high-speed compression valves are attached on the side of the struts and rear axle dampers of stainless steel. The low-speed excitations, caused for instance by steering and braking, can be adjusted directly on the KW Clubsport strut and rear-axle damper with 13 clicks using the purple adjusting ring. The high-speed compression forces can be adjusted separately with 14 clicks via the golden wheel. A high-speed excitation for the damper is typical when driving over bumps, curbs or transverse joints. The rebound, which among other factors also influences the suspension’s de-compression, is adjusted on the KW Clubsport coilover directly on the piston rod with 16 clicks. Whereas the purple wheel on the rear axle damper is permanently integrated in the taking up of the piston rod, the wheel on the front axle is inserted into the piston rod for adjustment. Via the unibal top mounts of aluminum on the front axle struts, it is possible, if desired, to further adapt the camber and backlash for the handling in bends.
