The TracTive Touring Line ACE Kit are semi-active coilovers that change their damping rates on-the-fly in response to different road conditions, making them perfect for road and track use.

The key difference between TracTive suspension systems and traditional coilover suspension kits is TracTive's Active Controlled Electronics (ACE) system. The ACE system uses TracTive's patented Dynamic Damping Adjustment (DDA) valve, which is controlled by a sensitive multi-axis g-sensor and advanced algorithms.

The multi-axis g-sensor constantly monitors cornering, acceleration and braking g-forces whilst driving. These inputs are processed by a series of advanced algorithms that have been developed from decades of racing and road testing experience. These algorithms control the operation of the DDA valve which responds to g-force inputs within 6 to 10ms, which allows the dampers to absorb bumps and compressions before you even have a chance to notice them.

The ACE system ensures you have the maximum amount of grip at any given time regardless of the road surface and conditions.

TracTive's Touring Line ACE coilovers are compatible with your Porsche's PASM system as a plug and play upgrade. The increased sophistication and quality of the TracTive technology increases the performance of the PASM system. In the 'normal' setting your Porsche will be more comfortable and supple than standard, and in 'sport' the car will be far better on circuit without being overly-stiff.

Also available is a 'standalone' TracTive Touring Line ACE Kit, which comes with a touchscreen controller from which you can change the behaviour of the dampers across four parameters: bump, rebound, roll and and pitch. You can store five separate damper setups using the touchscreen, so you can have unique setups for road use, fast road use, track use, wet driving etc.

Why choose coilovers?

Car manufacturers often elect to save money when building cars by using cheap and reliable springs and dampers instead of high-quality performance items.

This is where aftermarket coilovers come in. Aftermarket coilover manufacturers use far higher quality materials and more sophisticated technology in their products. The resulting products are of a much higher quality than the springs and dampers that are fitted to your car as standard.

Alongside higher quality materials, the technology used inside aftermarket dampers such as the valving and piston design is far more advanced. Most coilovers are adjustable, allowing you to fine-tune the bump and rebound characteristics of the damper. This gives you full control over the kinematics of your car.

The main advantage of coilovers is in the higher level of grip they create. The higher quality springs and dampers are effective at keeping the tyres in contact with the tarmac even over rough surface, ensuring the tyres are creating as much grip as possible. The tuneable damping settings allow you to reduce body roll; to eliminate nose-diving under heavy braking, and to reduce squat under acceleration.

Coilovers are fully ride-height adjustable. You can adjust the ride height to improve cornering by introducing rake angle, which improves turn-in and increases braking stability. Ride height adjustability allows for a corner-weighting setup to be done, and this greatly improves acceleration, braking and cornering.

Coilovers are a comprehensive suspension performance upgrade, not only in terms of technology and materials but also in terms of the far more in-depth setup possibilities they offer.
