Porsche 914 ACE shock
Touring Line: Suspensions are adapted to utilise OEM top mounts and matched Eibach springs to ensure an even higher level of road compliance and comfort for road-biased cars. On factory RS/GT Porsche’s fitted with monoball/camber top mounts, this offers a substantial saving and a very stealthy upgrade! You can now experience that track feeling of ultimate control and performance, but with comfort for daily use.
Competition Line: For Race Teams, we can build dedicated suspension set-ups to ensure you get race-winning performance on the track. Please contact us for more information.
TracTive ACE (Activity Controlled Electronic)
Road is the perfect specification for 90% road cars with very occasional track use.
For the driver looking for uncompromised road compliance and comfort but better control and agility.
Suspension comes complete with TracTive control module, wiring harness. For use with torsion bars and original top mounts. Spindle height is adjustable.
TracTive ACE gives you independent control of front and rear damping, mid-corner roll and pitch during corner entry, braking and acceleration. All from the comfort of your car using the optional CANchecked touchscreen controller.
Inside each ACE electronic damper is our patented Dynamic Damping Adjustment valve (DDA) controlled by a sensitive multi-axis g-sensor and advanced algorithms developed from decades of racing and road testing. An incredibly large damping range is possible electronically, capable of responding within 6-10ms. Consider for a moment, the average human reacts to visual stimulus within 250ms, you begin to realise what a game-changer TracTive is compared to existing suspension systems.
ACE has an intuitive ability to react to changing road surfaces and conditions. Bumps and compressions mid-corner will be absorbed before you have time to react, easily holding the desired line through a series of high-speed corners without being thrown offline.
Grip levels in all conditions are vastly increased, giving you the ability to push your car to limits you previously thought were not possible.
Damper settings are completely customisable from comfortable road compliance to controlled aggression on the race track and can be saved onto five presets for one-touch convenience.
Alternatively, you can choose to have a discreet knurled rotary knob with 5 suspension maps developed for your driving style.

TracTive Touchscreen Controller (TCU S15) ACE & R-ACE Systems:
As an option, we supply a TFT touchscreen controller enabling you to be in complete control of adjustment to damping, roll and pitch. This can be changed either on-the-fly or saved onto 5 favourite suspension maps accessible via one-touch buttons.
Front and rear damping adjustment can be changed independently allowing you to fine-tune the handling and balance characteristics of your car.
Damping can either be adjusted from full soft for complete road compliance to the perfect fast road or track setup by touching the + button to increase or – to decrease stiffness.
Roll (mid-corner) and Pitch (dive under braking and squat under acceleration) can also be controlled in a similar fashion.
5 favourite suspension set-ups can be saved onto one-touch buttons for immediate changes to cover every driving scenario, road or weather condition.
The screen is based on a CANchecked MFD28 display offering a 2.8-inch colour touchscreen mounted on a milled black aluminium bezel and offers MicroSD and MicroUSB connectivity.
Race cars using data logging displays, running Can Bus software can communicate directly with the TracTive ACE and R-ACE suspension systems without the need to use the TCU-S15 screen.
TracTive Programmable 5-way Rotary Controller for ACE & R-ACE Systems:
Alternatively, if you want something more subtle and easily concealed inside any classic or standard factory interior, there is the optional programmable rotary dial.
Offering the driver 5 perfectly matched suspension options covering commuting, touring, fast road and track, these can be tailored to suit, then downloaded at the time of installation and further tweaked if necessary.
