Since its introduction, the Öhlins DFV line has revolutionized coilovers, and as a result, no longer are customers forced to choose between performance and ride quality. The Öhlins DFV valving design made it possible to have a truly track worthy damper that was also not only livable, but actually comfortable on the street, without sacrifice to performance driving. As suspension engineers, the one thing that always frustrated us was being forced into the mold of a standard off the shelf suspension settings. The vast majority of our Ohlins customers ultimately decide to purchase new springs for their DFVs, and we designed this SBG Exclusive suspension kit around the most popular settings amongst our customers, and included optimized valving to accept a wide range of performance street and track worthy spring rates.  We include stronger and lighter aluminum lower mounting forks and custom top hats with teflon lines spherical bearings.  The optimized valving curves offer much improved ride quality over the standard DFV kit, and elevated performance out of the box. For roughly the cost of a DFV kit and replacement springs, this kit is a no-brainer for any S2000 driver!

Product Features Include:

  • Custom Spec  11kg/mm Front | 11kg/mm Rear  Springs Incuded 
  • Custom Valving -  Offers greatly improved handling and comfort over the standard DFV kit while providing wide spring rate options
  • Custom Billet 6061 Aluminum Lower Mounting Forks (stronger and lighter) 
  • Custom Billet 6061 Aluminum Top Hats with Spherical Bearings

Optimized Springs and Valving

While no two drivers or cars are the same, the vast majority of our customers choose to max out the the standard Ohlins valving on their DFV kits with custom spring rates. The FPSport kit utilizes custom valving designed for our higher square-spring-rate setup, with 11kg/mm front | 11kg/mm rear springs.  The result is an overall improvement in both traction and ride quality, with the ability to swap springs in a wider and more useable range without revalving (down to 9kg/mm and able to push 13-14kg/mm for track use).   Geared towards square tire setups, we built this kit around s2000's prepped for performance as opposed to an s2000 with stock sway bars and tires.  The valving curve is carefully balanced for comfort and performance driving, making this kit some of the best crossover use suspension available in this price range.  We've increased the spring rate range that the valving can handle in order to allow more aggressive track oriented rates to be used (without the need for a re-valve), all without sacrificing comfort.  At a cost comparable to a standard DFV kit with replacement springs, we feel that this setup hits a sweet spot for a modified s2000!

 

Billet Aluminum Lower Mounting Forks

Stronger and lighter than the standard stamped steel version, the billet lower forks are welcome addition to the all-aluminum DFV shock body and lower mount.  Made from billet 6061 aluminum and mil-spec hard anodized, our lower mounts shed weight while increasing rigidity... and look damn good doing it!  As a side benefit, there is also more ride height adjust-ability than the standard kit, allowing cars to be lower if desired.  

 

Custom Billet Aluminum Tophat with Teflon Lined Spherical Bearings 

Made from billet 6061 aluminum as well, no cost was spared on the design and production of the top hats.  The standard Ohlins tophats are stamped from sheet aluminum, while our custom billet top hats are lathed and milled from solid billet aluminum for increased rigidity.  Included Teflon lined spherical bearings provide high strength, silent articulation, and will never rust.

 

Same Dual Flow Valve Technology That You Have Came to Love

Derived from Öhlins Racing heritage, the DFV is uniquely able to provide the damping support needed to snake through a slalom at an autocross yet being silky smooth while attacking the apex curbs at the track. The standard Öhlins DFV kit has become the defacto road & track damper choice for the s2000 and many other platforms due to its impressive combination of body control during aggressive driving while maintaining ride comfort on rough roads. The simple fact is: no other damper near this price point has the ability to keep up.  Ohlins party piece is their ultra high speed valving path which reduces damping force at high shock velocities.  Translation:  The DFV gets *softer* than the standard performance valving when you hit a pothole, mid-corner bump, or curbing on track.  Mid-corner bumps are absorbed instead of upsetting the chassis, potholes on the street are soaked up gracefully, and curbing on track is no longer intimidating or upsetting to the chassis.  The technology that makes the DFV's good on the street, is what also makes them a force to be reckoned with on track.   This patented technology from Ohlins makes the DFV's a secret weapon on track and a stealthy suspension upgrade for the street.  Think firm yet supple, you will not be disappointed.
