Elise Spares were commisioned to test and develop these dampers for the Lotus market and are the sole distributor worldwide. We have made every effort to establish, before release, that they really are the best performing damper on the market.
We started testing and developing these fantastic dampers mid 2013 through to mid 2014 and are now satisfied these are the only choice of 1 way damper in the marketplace.
We started testing in 2013 with our team ES Motorsport who run cars in the Lotrdc race series in the UK and Europe. Results from the 2013 season speak a 1000 words, 1st in the 120 minute Lotus Cup UK race at Snetterton, 2nd and 3rd place in the Lotus 6 hour race at Brands Hatch and crowned champions in the Lotus Cup Europe series with driver Thomas Dehaibe.
ES Motorsport now have most of their cars and their customers cars on ATR dampers.
We have tested them on the road too for around 5,000 miles on a S2 Elise, the car feels great, absorbs bumps and pot holes very well without banging through the car like a lot of aftermarket dampers.
The one comment we regularly get is how compliant they feel at all levels, they give excellent sharp response on track, very well balanced allowing for a fast precise turn in. Also on track you can take big kerbs without unsettling the car.
12 months warranty as standard and fixed price servicing ( 2 year intervals recommended )
The list price is for 4 dampers and 4 coil springs to suit.
We will discuss each individual customer requirements prior to despatch. We have data and feedback for all applications from road use only through to rallycross.
Introductory price for a limited time only.
