VX220 Quantum Racing Zero Damper Set
QUANTUM ZERO 200 proof QUANTUM.
Kit includes new front upper damper mounts and a nut and bolt kit.
The perfect example of form follows function.
A huge amount of Research and Development has gone into the design and manufacture of this latest offering from Eliseparts / Quantum Racing Shocks.
Eliseparts have been supplying dampers in various forms for almost 20 years.
During this time, we have frequently been asked by our customers for a high quality height adjustable damper for the Elise /VX220 platform, giving the performance previously only available with adjustable mono-shocks but in a simple fit and forget package without any confusing adjustments.
As usual there was one area in which we were unwilling to compromise, quality. The way we see it, the only way to guarantee that is to keep design and manufacture in house.
All QUANTUM ZERO shocks are manufactured at the Quantum premises in Sussex, with a bare minimum of sundry items bought in from established suppliers in the United Kingdom and Europe.
With our combined experience with Quantum Racing in the joint development of the Quantum Black range we have been supplying over several years to the Lotus community, we have developed The Quantum Zero to fulfil this need.
They can be installed on any Elise, Exige and VX220 in about 1 hour; the ride height can then be easily set and as long as you do not drop the ride height by more than 15mm minimal geometry adjustments will be necessary.
The damper is fully height adjustable and although it’s perfectly OK to use on track it has been designed as a performance road damper that offers much better handling without compromising OE comfort levels too much.
The adjustment tool pictured here is not totally necessary but again we can supply this at a minimal cost if required.
Spring rates are optional, we can offer either 200 / 400lbs or 220 / 550lbs rear progressive springs, front springs range from 275lbs to 400lbs depending on usage and what rear progressive spring is installed.
For the hard-core track day enthusiast we recommend the Quantum Black.
Less displaced fluid means less floating piston travel; yet again reducing friction and change in gas pressure throughout the operating stroke.
For almost 25 years Quantum have been very successful in the motorsports arena.
Operating from a factory unit bordering the South Downs National park, Quantum Racing Services are typical of the precision engineering businesses on which the UK motorsport industry’s worldwide reputation is founded.
Today the company is owned and operated by Patrick Murphy, formerly a number one mechanic with the Benetton Formula F1 racing team. Patrick joined Quantum in 1992 and took a controlling interest in the business a year later.
Jamun have now succeeded six years of consecutive British Formula Ford champions on Quantum shocks.
All Quantum's shocks are designed at their premises using full 3D solid modelling CAD programmes and the shock components are CNC machined from the highest quality billet materials.
This fits the following models:
- VX220 / SPEEDSTER
- LOTUS EUROPA
