Highest demands on the shock absorbers
For us, rallycross also means a return to unpaved ground – with all the challenges that gravel and the mega-jumps that are almost obligatory for rallycross bring with it. Above all, it is these jumps that have conjured up a bead of sweat or two on the forehead of our motorsport specialists. According to motorsport engineer Daniel Pitsch, the damping forces required for the sometimes very violent jumps are the greatest challenge. Overall, the development of rallycross shock absorbers resembles the squaring of the circle. After all, the shock absorbers also have to work on different surfaces.
For the Renault Mégane supercars of GC Kompetition we developed completely new shock absorbers in winter, which are 5-fold adjustable. One advantage: Our many years of experience in long-distance motorsport, because just like most GT cars, the GCK Mégane also has double wishbone wheel suspensions.
