MGTF ride improvement kit from Vehicle Handling Solutions Ltd

The best ride quality is delivered when all of the available wheel travel is used in a progressive but controlled way. To achieve this on MGTF VHS has developed a new damper setting, utilizing a much larger Bilstein damper matched to a new polymer spring aid, to replace the standard hard rubber bump stop. The philosophy has been to retain the vehicle handling via use of the standard springs and anti roll bars whilst improving the ride comfort through better damping. The MGTF is a prime example of a car that has a suspension system suited to high pressure gas charged mono-tube dampers. VHS were well aware that by changing the damper design ride comfort could be significantly improved. Unfortunately high quality, monotube dampers were not factory built on MGTF due to cost considerations.

The kit utilizes a high quality German made Bilstein damper unit. The damper is of a monotube type construction, meaning that the outer tube forms the working cylinder. This allows a much larger valve area, having a working volume of 100cc compared to the standard MG fitment of 37cc. The monotube design generates compression damping forces from the whole piston area unlike the standard TF units which rely upon the much smaller effective area of the rod. The ride comfort is improved primarily because the same damping forces can be produced at much lower cylinder pressures; in addition improved valve response allows better overall damping control. The effect is analogous with small and large capacity engines of equal power output i.e. they do a similar job but the larger engine is much more relaxed about it. For these reasons MGR used Bilstein dampers on Rover V8, MGZT 260 and MG SV vehicles. The kit has a two year guarantee and the dampers can be fully rebuilt and re-valved if required.

The kit has been developed by ex MG Rover ride and handling engineers using Bilstein UK, state of the art engineering facilities.

MGF Body Torsional Stiffness Kit.

Is your MGF feeling tired? Are you fed up with squeaks, rattles and the rear view mirror vibrating? Why not try our torsional stiffness kit? 

This kit can be supplied in two parts. A significant increase in torsional stiffness of the body structure helps to improve the vehicle handling and steering feel. The kit also significantly reduces structural shake and improves the ride refinement by reducing rattles.

Comes complete with all fixings and necessary brackets to fit to a standard MGF bodyshell and full set of instructions.

MG ZT260 suspension upgrade

The MG ZT260 suspension upgrade is a further development of the high quality original equipment springs and dampers. Good camber control resulting from high bending stiffness combined with very responsive valve characteristics are now tuned to provide handling agility with finesse.

Four Eibach springs and Bilstein monotube gas charged dampers are supplied with bespoke settings developed by us, tuned to achieve a 15mm lower ride height with a firmer and more controlled ride.

We have developed a package that blends a more sporting chassis with acceptable ride comfort for a daily drive. Our targets for this kit are:-

  • Improved body control
  • Crisper turn in response
  • Greater agility
  • Dynamic performance with finesse!

The units supplied are a direct replacement for the original items. We recommend a 4 wheel alignment check and reset after fitting.

All components are made in Germany to original MG quality specification.

Units supplied fully assembled, for easy installation, and include all new ancillary components, spring aids, mountings, steering bearings, dust covers, etc. SORRY - NO LONGER AVAILABLE from VHS Ltd.
