Nitron By Meteor. These Nitron NTR3 dampers are the next evolution of our recent successful 1 Way adjustable dampers for Caterham 7.
The Nitron by Meteor NTA is based around Nitron’s proven Pro 46mm suspension kit. Development of the Nitron damper range has not stopped. We have continued to improve the NTR1 and NTR3 over the last 12 months and these new Nitron by Meteor NTA specification dampers are the successful result.
Using the past 11 years of successful competition knowledge we have again improved on the suspension dynamics for the Autograss market.
The front dampers are unique in that the bodies are 40mm but use a 16mm shaft for increased strength. The rear dampers are 46mm and 16mm shaft. From the outside the units will look the same but internally they have been re-engineered. The reason behind the noticeable difference from the standard Nitron to the Meteor version is due to the internal valving and those increased shaft sizes. Allowing us to control the fluid flow more efficiently, thus making a noticeable difference to the handling performance and ride quality. With true 3 way adjustment and complete separation between the adjustment means that no longer will adjusting the rebound affect the forces seen on the compression side of the curve. We have seen many dampers where adjusting one setting affects another significantly but without a dyno you would not know it.
This kit is designed for serious race use and as such incorporates high and low speed bump control valves for further chassis fine tuning. By adjusting either bump or rebound damping the damping ratio can be adjusted, however the extra adjustment over the R1 opens up many more options during the setup process. For example the high speed damping can be kept soft so the car is not thrown by running kerbs, whilst not compromising body control in the transient cornering phase (turn in, applying power). The low speed control is more concerned with grip. Softening the low speed will increase the grip, useful if suffering from power-oversteer. The NTA remote reservoir kit provides simple fitting as included as standard are our swivel banjo fittings to both damper and canister. No ristrictions to the angle required for installation in the car. Other benefits of remote reservoirs are higher fade resistance due to a higher oil volume, plus a larger surface area to radiate the heat to the atmosphere.
Custom spring and valving requirements can be specified.
We can also help with a recommended set up starting point.

Kit includes 2 front dampers and 2 rear dampers.
