: how to increase comfort on coilovers?

Since we know that comfort on coilovers is achieved by matching the springs to the dampers for a specific chassis and that the oscillations and natural frequencies have to match to prevent dissonance, let's talk about the human perception of these factors.

We humans, unlike electronic sensors which can perceive absolute values in terms of acceleration, speed, frequency, and forces, cannot do the same. Instead, we perceive the difference in the two values - think of from standstill to moving, or from moving at a constant speed to moving even faster. We feel the difference between each change, not the absolute speed.

Humans find our balance using two organs of balance (the vestibular system), which is found inside the inner ear on each side of our heads. They are filled with fluids that move when our bodies move or when the environment changes (think of a person on a ship that is being rocked by waves). This information is then processed in the brain and then sent on to other organs that need this information, such as the eyes, joints or muscles. The information is also interpreted and matched to what our eyes see.

What the automotive terms as NVH - Noise, Vibration and Harshness - affects our balance systems and our minds. So, in the case of coilovers that is deemed as harsh and bumpy, we are not perceiving actual values of what constitutes the force from the bumps, but actually the difference between the initial state and the subsequent bump. The shorter the duration, the harsher the bump to our minds. This is why the dampers are there to slow down the bumps and rebounds - the slower and more gradual, the less perceived difference there is. The other alternative is to increase the stroke length so that the same force is spread out over a longer distance and thus extending the time duration. If everything is averaged and evened out, you'll feel like you are riding on a magic carpet. If every bump is felt instantly, that is akin to riding a go-kart.

Speaking of go-karts, ever had the experience of driving three sessions of go-kart at KF1 and after that, going into your car, your car feels like a Rolls-Royce? This is a memory effect. Humans can get conditioned and used to certain environments, as part of our adaption process. This is also why when you go from stock suspension to a set of un-tuned coilovers, you feel that the are so bumpy and stiff, but after two weeks, they feel better. Some workshops term them as a break-in period but the only thing 'breaking in" are your sensory perceptions, which are dulled to prevent sensory overload.

For quite a number of clients who installed coilovers and have them set up and tuned immediately, they feel little to no difference in the comfort of their car's ride. Why? It's because the coilover settings are done properly: the shocks and springs move in perfect unison across all four units, and there's no dissonance or mismatch in frequency or oscillation anywhere. Because of this, the human balance system doesn't detect tiny changes (most people can only detect bigger changes while only those who have trained sensitivity can feel it). So, in short, lesser NVH leads to little to no car sickness for the passengers (depends on driver's style also. If hard brakes and rapid accelerations are done back to back, it can still cause car sickness).

This is great for the wife, parents and kids. Why? To them, before and after coilovers, there is no difference to their comfort. In one particular case, the client's family doesn't even know he changed the suspension to coilovers ๐Ÿ˜œ. However, to the driver, there will be a marked improvement in the car's handling and an obvious lowering of the car which closes the wheel gap. Why? Because he can feel the difference, from the reduced body roll of the chassis to the instant initial turn-in of the wheels and better loading on the tyres which gives additional traction.

Have any questions after reading all three parts? Drop us a comment below and we'll reply as soon as we can. Else, if you want to achieve your very own harmonised carpet ride on coilovers, PM us, and our will work our physics (some call it magic) on your car.

A whole new world, a new fantastic point of view, only with : This Mk6 GTI on XYZ coilovers came to us to fix his harsh and jarring ride. Going over road works that were badly paved and potholes jolted straight into the cabin, disrupting the comfort for him and his family.

After he arrived at Ride Now - Car Rental Singapore (the owner was a regular client), we put his GTI up on the hoist to see what was the issue - the rear right was bottoming out and scrubbing, while the weight distribution and suspension balance could be better optimised. Our then started work, tuning his coilover settings, getting the cross weight balance to a perfect 50%, while tuning the rolling characteristics of the car so that it handles exactly how the owner drives it.

This was a Comfort + Handling + Performance (CHP aka Ultimate Sports) tune, where we also made sure that his rubbing issues were resolved through adjustments of coilover heights and overall ride height (both factors affect each other and other parameters required for a CHP tune).

After that, we went for a test drive where the owner went over a pothole and he said it didn't feel like one. Next day, we received a video review from him and his exact words are: "Can't help but to share this with u. I always avoid these pothole bumps on the left lane every morning on my way to work. And this morning I just magic carpet ride over it. ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ"

Want your very own magic carpet ride on coilovers? Talk to our specialist today and we'll be sure to extract every ounce of comfort and handling out of it. Maximise the potential of your expensive by getting them tuned by our .

Lowered, scraping and bottoming out: this poor C180 asked to address three main issues: scraping/bottoming out over humps, a harsh and uncomfortable rear, and floaty suspension that didn't inspire confidence at all.

Introduced to our suspension tuning services by Ride Now - Car Rental Singapore, we put the car up on the hoist, which shows us the aftermath of the above problems: an undercarriage full of scars, ranging from broken plastics and metal pieces to road rashes. Typical advice that comes to mind to those familiar with car enthusiasts groups, would be either "the car is lowered too much", or that the "coilovers aren't stiff enough", which is why it is bottoming out. But suspension issues are very seldom determined by just one-factor.

Based on our analysis and calculations, we balanced out the weight distribution across all four wheels by adjusting the cross weights to a perfect 50% and also tuned his coilovers to meet the owner's expectations as part of the package.

As a result, we brought comfort and handling back to the owner. The end result is a smooth and less nervous car, that inspires more confidence in turns due to the increased mechanical grip afforded by the coilovers.

: Are my coilovers able to give comfort and good handling?

Short answer is yes but your mileage may vary. This is in direct relation to the configurability and "reasonableness" of your coilovers.

The higher the configurability, the more parameters we have to adjust the comfort and handling to your liking. The more reasonable the parameters of the coilover, the higher the chances of being in the ballpark of what you determine to be comfortable and yet well-handling.

Spring rates, on the other hand, are a whole other topic on its own. We have come across a fair number of owners who are looking for a specific spring rate to run. While it is good to have choice, it's important to know what you can gain/lose by running a specific spring rate.

It has a direct effect on the limits of comfort and handling achievable simply because every parameter on the car is inter-dependent, as well as dependent on the situation and actual road conditions it has to deal with. The spring rate will affects a lot โ€“ we can tell you that much.

So, why should you run a high spring rate to get better cornering?

If you purchase a coilover built for the street, you are more likely to be in the ballpark to achieve any form of comfort and handling for a streetcar, compared to installing coilover systems meant for a race car (specifically a lighter sprung weight with higher aero downforce at speed).

All those conditions and other factors will contribute to the overall suitability of a coilover for your car.

To choose the most appropriate coilovers for your car, ask yourself three questions:

1) Does the workshop know the purpose/usage of my car?
2) Is the coilover designed to be used for a street car or race car?
3) Does the purpose of your car and the purpose of the coilover design match?

If the answer to (3) is a No, then you have an issue somewhere. Ensure they match and youโ€™ll find that youโ€™re going to be set for success. We are always happy to help you find that perfect match. Talk to our today and we'll get you sorted out.

It's fast, it's red, it's an R8. However, it's also harsh and bumpy, just like how many people expect sports cars to be.

Actually, that's a myth. Sports cars are actually very comfortable since their suspensions are tuned precisely to support the car and the quick weight transfers that happen during both low and high speeds as well as during hard cornering.

For this owner, it was a very unbearable year for him and his partner, until he came to us for a proper setup on his V3 . After his done by our at Ride Now - Car Rental Singapore, he wrote a review for us.

"After 2+ hours we have a more comfortable ride, ground clearance now is amazing. The KWs are now able to provide comfy plus handling thanks to the right people. Should have done this earlier as we suffered in the car for 12mths...."

We are glad to have brought both comfort and handling through our suspension tuning services, to all our clients on coilovers and are committed to sharing our knowledge with the local motoring community. If you are on coilovers and suffering like how this R8 owner did, we are your light at the end of the tunnel. PM us to solve your issues today.

: Lowering springs are indeed plug-and-play.

Unlike coilovers, lowering spring and shocks combos like the Bilstein B12s and the KYB Lowfer Sports kits, are truly plug-and-play with no balancing or tuning needed. Does this mean that all of them are horrid for comfort and handling then? No, they are no. ๐Ÿ˜Š

The amount of engineering and calculations invested into building fixed-height drop units like the Bilstein B12 is as immense, just like the time and effort invested into developing other units like the B6 monotube shocks to B14 and B16 coilovers.

So, why would some of us love the fixed height drop units and some of us not?

Here's our analogy: the audio shop which installs a head-unit does a great job. The head-unit is also well-built and is completed with top quality engineering. That model of head-unit also comes PRE-TUNED to listen to just one station, for example, the Govorit-Moskva 94.8FM which Russians really love for oldies. We would love it if we were Russian, but we aren't.

That is what fixed height drop suspension replacements are โ€“ A hit and miss. A hit if youโ€™re a perfect candidate for the suspension but a miss, if your car's parameter/usage isn't in perfect alignment (e.g. You do not understand Russian or like Russian oldies).

What we can advise you to do, is to take a ride in the shopโ€™s demonstration unit. Be sure to ask what was altered, what was installed so that you can replicate the exact feel. If your car doesnโ€™t feel the same, there may be a substantial difference which might require you to purchase/remove some items.

While we are developing ways to mitigate harshness and bumpiness from a lowering kit, there aren't really many adjustment parameters that can be made on the scale of coilovers.

In short - lowering springs are 'take it or leave it' like a store-bought shirt, while coilovers enable us to tune their characteristics to you, like a custom-tailored suit. We are here to chat if you want a second opinion on what truly meet your needs. Good luck!

PS: this fierce Mazda 3 on B12s had his suspension analysed by us last week on the scales at Ride Now - Car Rental Singapore.

: here's our guide on how to read corner weight balancing scales.

Our Longacre Racing Products Computerscales come from an established brand name in the industry and it is recognised for dedication to quality and innovation. These scales are also used by individual racers, as well as some of the most respected names in motor racing. (We also use Intercomp, which is another respected brand)

But what good is it if I do not know how to read the scales? In todayโ€™s post, we will share with you what you can see from the scales, and what you can use to visualise how your cars are moving in 3D when you are at one of our analysis sessions (Included with all tunes).

Terms/Glossary:

- Left: This literally means the entire LEFT side of the car weighs the amount shown, along with the corresponding percentage of total vehicle weight. This value will change, depending on the number of passengers in the vehicle. In our other posts, we elaborate more about a 50:50 mass distribution; well, that is Front and Rear. In this case, this is Left and Right. No one really talks about this, but it does show you where the location of your center of gravity is - which is important to us.

- Rear: This value shows the amount of weight at the rear of the vehicle, along with the corresponding percentage of total vehicle weight. This value will change, depending on the number of passengers in the vehicle. This is the aft component of the ever-popular term 50:50, however, in this case, you might find that it is lower for vehicles with engines mounted in the front. It will of course be the opposite if the engine were mounted in the rear. Also, this does also show you where the location of your center of gravity is - which, again, is also important to us.

- Cross: The cross-weight and its corresponding percentage is everything weโ€™re shooting for, on this scale. Cross-weight percentage compares the diagonal weight totals to the car's total weight. To calculate cross-weight percentage, add the RF weight to the LR weight and divide the sum by the total weight of the car.

- Total: This is the total weight of the car. This is most times without the driver. Drivers who wish to be tuned with them inside are welcome. Just be in there consistently, that's all we ask. The weight of the car will not change, however, in some cases, the fan might be blowing, added downforce.

Cross-weight is also called wedge: If the percentage is over 50 percent, the car has wedge; if below 50 percent, the car has a reverse wedge. More wedge means that the car will likely understeer more in a left turn. The advantage to wedge is that the left rear tire carries more load, so the car drives off the turns better. But in a right turn, the opposite occurs, and the handling is worse. In almost all cases, the loss of cornering performance in one direction is greater than the gain in the other direction. On oval track cars, cross-weight is usually used in conjunction with stagger (where the right rear tire is larger in circumference than the left rear tire) to balance handling. More stagger usually loosens the handling in left turns, so more cross-weight is used to tighten it up. But stagger is not a good idea on a road course or autocross either, thus the ideal is 50-percent cross-weight and no stagger.

One of the problems with cross-weight is that it will change the handling balance from a left to a right turn. This can make maneuvering in traffic difficult, even dangerous. On the street, the cross-weight percentage should be very close to 50 percent, within a half-degree either way, to keep the handling balance similar in a right-hand turn compared to a left-hand turn.

In the photos below, you'll be able to see a recent example of a car which we analysed and tuned at Ride Now - Car Rental Singapore, so tell us how you would read it. Let us know what youโ€™ve learnt and weโ€™ll be happy to applaud you or give you some other pointers!
