Electronic Semi-Active Damping
ACE (Active Controlled Electronics)
Our ACE system gives you independent damping control. Mid-corner roll and pitch during corner entry, braking and acceleration, bumps or holes in the road are all managed independently by each shock. This is all within your reach from the comfort of your car seat with the touchscreen display.
Inside each ACE damper is our patented Dynamic Damping Adjustment (DDA) valve. This DDA valve is controlled by a sensitive multi-axis g-sensor and advanced algorithms developed from decades of racing and road testing. A dynamic proportional valve operating as a bypass has capacity for a large range of damping adjustment, and is capable of responding within only 6-10 ms.
The TracTive DDA valve is the World’s fastest reacting valve!
Considering the human brain reacts within 150ms, you realize what a game-changer the TracTive ACE system is compared to all conventional suspension systems.
ACE has the intuitive ability to react to changing road surfaces and conditions. Bumps and compressions are absorbed before you have the chance to notice them. Especially on track through a series of high-speed curves this makes it possible to hold the line without deflection.
Grip levels in all conditions are vastly improved, maximizing each tire’s contact patch. This gives you the ability to push your car to limits you previously thought impossible and maintaining a safer drive. Electronic damper settings are completely customizable on your touchscreen, ranging from full road compliance to controlled aggression on track. This can be saved into five presets for one-touch convenience.
R-ACE Active Controlled Electronics
R-ACE combines all the benefits of the ACE technology with the addition of secondary low- and high-speed compression adjustments, which are tuned for the application and motorsport discipline.
The Low- and High-speed compression damping adjusters can fine- tune damper characteristics to find the perfect balance for individual track setup, driver preferences and race pace improvements. The compression adjusters can be located remotely, piggy-backed or mounted in-line with the dampers.
As the name suggests, R-ACE is best suited for extreme race and endurance applications. R-ACE is the very pinnacle of what is currently possible using knowledge gained from decades of racing at the highest level and electronic controlled damping reacting in a few milliseconds.
