BMW M1 E82 Ohlins DFV Suspension suitable for models 2011 -2012
So what is DFV? It is Dual Flow Valve technology – and it sets Ohlins apart from its competitors. Only Öhlins has DFV technology on its road and track products. With DFV, the dual flow valve gives the same characteristics on rebound as it does on compression, thanks to the damper fluid having a consistent path of flow in both directions. This means that the wheel and tyre can quickly and effectively resume their important position back on the ground, providing grip and traction. The new Öhlins R&T range uses DFV technology on every single fitment, making it the perfect upgrade for the enthusiast that needs comfort and agility in the one unit. Because DFV opens more quickly and easily on minor road imperfections, ride comfort is surprisingly supple and more akin to an OEM strut than a coilover set-up. Over undulating surfaces, the compliancy of the R&T units allows the car to crest bumps and pot-holes, whilst still keep stable and in control. Traction is always maintained at its optimum level. When comparing suspension, why settle for second best? Please note that the image is generic and for advertising purposes only and may not represent the final ordered product for your vehicle.

“The chassis must feel right because a sports car is a fun machine, a joy to use that when used properly is a life-affirming experience.”
We have been helping people to build their perfect four wheel companions since 1983, doing this has taught us that when helping to build an enthusiast’s personal idea of perfection listening to driver feedback is literally everything when it comes to generating the perfect handling dynamics.
We understand that to achieve the very best results for our clients we must pay careful attention to the all-important link between the human and the machine, how the car feels in the driver’s hands as they offer the steering towards an apex, how the chassis communicates whilst it smoothly checks back into line with a wrist-flick of opposite lock, we start to focus on this key aspect very early on in the car building process.
We have learned that when it comes to real sports cars and real car enthusiasts this tight bond with the machine is every bit as important or perhaps even more important than the ability of the vehicle to set a lap record around a racing circuit.
When it comes to improving a chassis we like to start by talking to the driver first and foremost, by talking with the driver we can understand what the end goal should look and feel like. It’s once we have this clear target of just what it is we are looking to achieve with a given chassis that we can bring out our big guns in terms of chassis development tools.
Here at Torque Developments we offer the complete range of services ranging right the way from clean sheet whole vehicle design on one extreme, right the way across to considered and insightful advice on a geometry setup or a tyre choice for your vehicle.
