2002-2006 Mini Cooper Euro Street Series
2002-2006 Mini Cooper Euro Street Series
Model Number : MR-CDK-MC02-EU
The Mini Cooper has an extremely long heritage in racing. From its inception, the car was always a small, quick and nimble automobile that was extremely fun to drive. It was not very powerful, but it displayed exceptional handling characteristics due to its light weight. In 2002, BMW took over the production of the Mini Cooper; redesigning a vehicle that had gone un-touched for many years proved to be a difficult task, but BMW managed to bring the historic car to modern appeal and contemporary design and performance.
When BMW started to produce the Mini Cooper, they incorporated their own long line of racing heritage and racing technology into the project to design the Mini Cooper in production today. With its Bulldog-Like stance, light weight, and low center of gravity the Mini Cooper was designed to handle well.
The only downside to the Mini Cooper was that the suspension, although sporty, was still on the conservative side sacrificing performance for a more refined comfort that BMW has to uphold. The suspension is sufficient for the average driver but may be insufficient for the tuner who demands the most from their Mini Cooper. For this reason, Megan Racing has developed a damper system for the Mini Cooper.
Megan Racing Coil-Over Dampers are the ultimate upgrade to your track or street car. Featuring 32 levels of damper force adjustment, separate spring perch height and shock length adjustment allowing you to retain full suspension stroke and to fine tune your suspension characteristics. These damper kits are then perfectly matched with front and rear Pillow Ball upper mounts, including camber plates integrated with the upper Pillow Ball mounts on strut-type suspension applications.
Compression and rebound settings are easily adjusted through a single damper adjustment knob which is built-in at the top of the damper mount for easy access. Adjustments are simple to tune according to your style of driving and desired comfort level whether you are a professional certified mechanic or an automotive enthusiast with amateur mechanical skills. All of our dampers are capable of handling a +2kg/mm or -2kg/mm change in spring rates to further tune your suspension to your desired handling characteristics.
Height adjustments are made with separate CNC-Machined locking spring perches for accuracy and smooth adjustment with separate damper shock length adjustment to retain full-stroke and allows for precision suspension tuning. The wide range of allowable ride-height adjustment allows for a conservative drop to more aggressive ride heights for an aggressive stance, or to fine tune your suspension for the circuit to gain full potential of your vehicle's handling capabilities.
On applications utilizing strut-type suspension designs, the Megan Racing Damper Kits come with fully adjustable Pillow-Ball upper mount camber plates to easily tune and adjust your camber, giving you a competitive edge over other suspension setups. This allows you to tune your car for any ride height and still adjust camber to improve handling, vehicle predictability and tire wear, which is a great benefit both on the race-track and on the street.
The quality and durability of the Megan Racing Damper kits are unmatched. Made of extremely durable Steel and featuring springs that are constructed of SAE-9254 Cold-Wound Steel which are then tested over 500,000 times by compression inspection. With deformation less than 5% and high strength sophisticated surface coating, we stand by our product with our strong warranty.
