CATERHAM

Suspension


Caterham suspension has always been an interest of mine.  Caterham 7 Suspension, Springs and handling have from the outset been the core interest of Meteor Motorsport. Caterham 7 Suspension is where the business has its roots and expertise. We have our own Suspension Dyno which enables us to test, compare and develop new settings that would otherwise be impractical and probably impossible.

Couple the above facilities and experience with our knowledge of a Caterham 7 and you could say you have the ideal package. We have toured in a 7, gone on local “Blats”, driven to and from trackdays, trailered to track days and for the past 13 years alongside all of the above we have competed at Sprint and Hillclimb events all over the UK. We even have a few wins and records to account for all this time and effort.

Dampers & Springs more commonly known together as “shock absorbers” are probably the most important aspect of your cars handling. Without the best handling you can not use your powerful engine.

It’s not all straight forward and many many mistakes in specification can and have been made.  Assembling and specifying a Caterham Shock Absorber begins long before we get any parts or springs. It begins with a series of questions being asked of you and your intended usage. What the specification of your car is and if you plan any improvements or upgrades other than to the suspension. All of the answers to these questions influence my advice and choice of Caterham Shock Absorber specification.

We now have a significant data bank of damper dyno tests, knowledge both from my own experience competing in the Lotus 7 Clubs Speed Championship for over 13 years and generally driving a 7 for 20 years. This experience has been added to by asking questions of others and trying different set ups out.

We are independent of all the manufacturers and can therefore recommend the best product for your requirements and budget.

With Nitron, Quantum, Penske, Ohlins and Tractive all having their place in our selection.

We offer springs from, Eibach, Hyperco, D Faulkner and Suplex all to our tested and recommended specification.
