Bilstein ClubSport suspension system for Porsche 991 GT3 launched
Bilstein has launched its Clubsport coilover suspension for the Porsche 911 GT3 (991 Series). The suspension underwent meticulous tuning and adjustment work during a two-week field test on the test and trial circuit in Papenburg (Emsland). Bilstein technicians tuned the high-end coilover suspension to the Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus in the GT3.
The system consists of an electronically controlled, fully variable rear axle lock and works simultaneously with targeted, selective braking interventions. When the steering locks a slight braking action is applied to the rear wheel of the GT3 on the inside of the corner. The system assigns a higher torque value to the wheel on the outside of the corner, thus giving an additional moment of momentum in the applied direction.
The two-way Clubsport suspension for the GT3 can be adjusted separately with the clearly visible, colour-marked aluminium adjustment wheels positioned on the shock absorber from one (soft) to 10 (firm) via rebound (red) and compression (blue) stages with a lowering range of up to 15mm on the front axle and up to 20mm on the rear axle. This integrates perfectly with the GT3’s factory stability system, permitting 100 adjustment settings that can be experienced and manually selected with noticeable differences, and allow higher cornering speeds on the race track and road. As with the rest of the suspension components, the outer tubes of the new Bilstein Clubsport for the GT3 are manufactured from aluminium for weight optimisation.
Bilstein Clubsport has a lowering range of up to 35mm (front axle) and 30mm (rear axle), which will is compatible for all models of the 991 series.
