McPherson Racing Struts - Circuit Dampers and Rally Shock Absorbers
McPherson Racing Struts -
Circuit Dampers and Rally Shock Absorbers
The design for our Circuit Rally Mcpherson Struts have been refined to give unequalled performance in terms of weight, friction, stiction and cost.
Together with the performance and flexibility of the Penske Shock Absorbers System, we can supply the best damper package available for any form of racing.
As a critical, load-bearing component of a cars suspension package, it is crucial that our racing struts operate with minimal friction; even when faced with the severe lateral loading that modern racing tyre is capable of producing. Equally crucial, is the system's resistance to flex under these loads. Any flex in the strut could distort critical characteristics, such as wheel camber.
In order that they operate with minimal friction, Penske racing struts are built using one of two principle designs:
DU-Bush McPherson Strut
This design utilizes the latest in DU-Bush technology to achieve smooth movement between the inner and outer tube. The outer surface of our inner tubes is hard-chromed and ground to a fine tolerance in both diameter and surface-finish. It is this combination which has given Penske struts such a successful motor racing history.
Linear-Bearing McPherson Strut
Born out of British Touring Car Championship technology, our use of linear roller bearings, as the medium for strut motion, has proven itself to be a critical breakthrough in the McPherson strut market. Specialized materials, in both the inner and outer casings, combined with our meticulous tolerances on the interfacing diameters, have allowed this technology to produce a sliding inner/outer tube assembly, which produces negligible levels of friction under any load; a combination also unmatched in terms of rigidity and strength.
We work closely with Aerospace suppliers to utilise the latest technology in our seals, bearings and materials. Whatever the performance level of your car, we can produce a design to match. All performance rally shock absorbers and circuit dampers are deigned to your specification and we are able to incorporate any modifications or custom systems that you require into the McPherson struts.
