Meteor have been trading over 7 years. Specializing in Suspension and having our own damper dynamometer (to our knowledge the only commercial one available in South Wales) we have formed strong links with leading car engineers and suspension manufacturers such as Ohlins, Penske, Quantum and Nitron.
Bringing the same levels of customer service and knowledge to other marques. Always taking time to find out the exact requirements of the customer. Upgrading road suspension or supplying top of the range dampers for a race car we can ensure the engineers get all the necessary information to build you the right kit.

TTS Report - Evo X - Tractive Suspension We’ve had a lot of requests for updates since we installed the Tractive Autosport Suspension 3-way dampers in our production racing car. Here it is: Last weekend we raced at Sydney Motorsport Park for the APC 4hour race. It was the first outing and official test for the new dampers. We chose a spring frequency of around 3Hz front and rear, aiming to find a good compromise for endurance racing (mixed conditions) and tyre life (Hankook Ventus tyre). The ground clearance was set to just over 100mm under the car (category regs) with about 5mm of rake, nose-down. At this ride height we had about 60mm of droop from ride height. The drivers said that the car was the best 4wd they had ever driven. The car had great steering response (even if the springs are on the softer side) and the best gain was that the car continued to yaw with throttle application, rather than the usual understeer you would experience with a car with 60% front mass distribution. The typical Evo “hop” out of the corners was gone, replaced with a smooth delivery of torque to the wheels. The front struts allow up to 5.5 deg of negative camber with a combination of top mount and camber washer adjustment using a standard lower control arm. The tyre life was improved so much that we were setting faster times with used tyres and low fuel compared to new tyres and full tank of fuel. And, whilst the other Evos punctured tyres we just sailed past with confidence. The added droop travel made the car excellent over curbs and gave confidence to push the car over the bumps. Here are a few pics of the installation. Contact us if you want more information. Coming up, our first active tarmac rally Evo 8 set will see some of the most challenging roads in tarmac rallying.
