There are plenty of low-buck coilover solutions on the market for S2000s, and most of them are passable for daily-driving duties, but when it comes time to get serious about performance, there are only a handful of companies on the market that can meet that demand, and one of them is Ohlins.
With a long history in motorsports racing, Ohlins has been dedicated to producing quality suspension that meets the needs of both racing and road-going enthusiasts. Its Road & Track lineup of coilovers is meant to be a perfect blend of racetrack and street performance. Built with little compromise in mind, the R&T coilovers utilize a proprietary Dual-Flow Valve that allows instantaneous suspension movement during harsh, high-speed loads ensuring the tire is always contacting the ground (that’s a good thing).
While other dampers’ performance tends to deteriorate as the fluid inside the shock heats up, Ohlins has a unique needle bleed valve that expands with the internal temperature change, therefore maintaining a consistent damping rate no matter how hard the shock is working. The result is a reliable and stable automobile, turn after turn, lap after grueling lap.
Even though Ohlins’ top priority is performance, it realizes many customers want to be able to lower their cars without detrimental effects. That’s why the Road & Track coilovers employ a threaded body and an adjustable lower flange, which means the spring and its perch are left untouched, maintaining the same characteristics no matter the ride height.
Ohlins R&T coilovers are fully rebuildable and built with quality, corrosion-resistant, lightweight components to ensure they’ll last as long as your car.
