The roll-center on the stock front suspension of the MINI Cooper and Cooper S experiences large movements when cornering; the result of which compromises handling and results in poor feedback to the driver.
Altering front suspension geometry by raising the roll-center results in an extensive increase to roll resistance and, importantly, the reduction of suspension compression of the outside front wheel during cornering through enhanced weight transfer distribution.
Front Arm Spacers have been specially developed to correct this problem.
The result? Dramatically improved handling characteristics for any type of MINI; whether your car is standard/lightly modified (street) or a fully stripped track monster (competition). By upgrading to the KAVS Motorsport Front Arm Spacers, you will experience a lot more feedback through your steering wheel allowing your car to feel more responsive on the shopping run, or on the fast corners of a race circuit!
Another benefit (again, whether you use your car for every day or track use) is that your tyres will be put under less stress, thus increasing their life span.
So do you want;
- Better handling?
- A more responsive drive?
- Longer lasting tyres?
If the answer to any of the above is “yes!” then the KAVS Motorsport Front Arm Spacers are the perfect solution.
