MCS 2 Way
The MCS 2W damper is a double-adjustable damper with external reservoirs which allow for adjustment of the gas pressure in the damper. Both compression and rebound damping forces are independently adjustable with the compression adjuster located on the reservoir head and the rebound adjuster located on the shaft-end.
Compression damping forces are controlled by a large blow-off valve located directly on the reservoir main piston for the most precise and accurate damping control, and not a needle valve with a smaller effective adjustment range before the needle is too far out of the orifice to influence flow.
Rebound damping forces are controlled through orifices located at the main piston assembly in the damper body and allow for precise hydraulic control of damper oil through the main piston. Utilizing orifices introduces the ability to have a wide operating range, avoiding pesky re-valves, consistency in damping adjustment per click, and virtually eliminates fatigue with usage.
Gas pressure can be adjusted through a schrader valve located at the end of the remote reservoir, allowing you to increase or decrease the overall support to the vehicle. Reservoir pressure can be adjusted between 100 – 275 PSI to help support the platform in fast cornering that generate large loads or allow more weight transfer to generate more traction in low grip scenarios.
These dampers are packed with technical features but with an elegantly clean execution. The monotube design is very stable with more oil capacity and better heat dissipation than twin tube dampers. Large shafts give extremely high, low-friction side-load support unmatched by shocks inverted and converted for strut applications. The large main piston gives quick, accurate damper response and the divider piston separates oil and gas, eliminating cavitation which often causes noise and sloppiness.
Remote reservoirs give superior fluid temperature control and are available (or standard depending on application) with Staubli dry-breaks for easy installation.
MCS is our "go to" damper system for our race cars and has been for many years. I'll tell you a bit about the man who founded the company and who does all the design work as it is important to understand why you should consider buying MCS Suspension. MCS is headed by Jerome Van Gool, he is the "Brains" behind the designs and his resume speaks for itself. Jerome entered the suspension industry in 1990 and since then, Jerome has been building, designing, and servicing dampers for notable teams such as Alfa Corse, PTG, and GM in ALMS, Trans-Am, DTM, World GT Championship, as well as others.
He has been involved in over 100 European, Asian and US Championships and countless race wins, including 24 Hours of LeMans and the Nurburgring 24. Jerome’s work has also won FIA World GT, World Touring Car, World Sportscar, and a broad range of European and North American GT and Touring Car championships. So, it is needless to say that he designs one heck of a shock absorder system.
MCS offers some of the worlds best suspension available at any price for race and road going cars. The application list is extensive and if you do not see your application on the list, just give us a call because MCS can probably make what you need.
Monotube Construction is very stable with more oil capacity and better heat dissipation than twin tube dampers. The large main piston gives quick, accurate damper response and the divider piston separates oil and gas, eliminating cavitation which causes noise, sloppiness, and loss of traction. We use large diameter shafts better displace fluid inside the damper body and give extremely high, low-friction side-load support unmatched by shocks inverted and converted for strut applications.
Blow-off valves are extremely effective in managing high speed compression hits where shaft speed velocities can create significant increases in compression damping forces. Our proprietary blow off mechanisms are entirely unique to MCS and minimize a compression strike otherwise applied to a tire, resulting in a large loss of grip and in street applications, comfortable road manners.
Orifices allow for precise hydraulic control of damper oil through the main piston. Utilizing orifices introduces the ability to have a wide operating range, avoiding pesky re-valves, consistency in damping adjustment per click, and virtually eliminates fatigue with usage.
