Performance Dampers are a new technology that effectively absorb chassis distortion, as well as discomforting noise and vibrations while driving. This revolutionary automobile parts enables high quality, comfortable driving unlike conventional parts.
Introducing Performance Dampers
This damper (shock absorber) uses a new technology that effectively absorbs vehicle erastic deformation, discomforting noize, and vibration while you drive.

Principle of Performance Dampers
The chassis of a passenger vehicle is often slightly distorted by 1 mm or less while driving. A metal body has elastic characteristics and functions poorly to dampen such distortion, so external distortion energy is almost entirely accumulated and released, repeating distortion at a specific frequency.
The Performance Damper adds a damping element to the chassis, which absorbs distortion energy and dissipates it as heat energy. This dampens excessive distortion speed of the chassis, which not only makes for a more comfortable drive, but also enables better handling and stability even when driving at high speed, which typically causes greater chassis distortion.
A car chassis is a collection of spring elements, so a car chassis in motion is constantly being distorted and vibrated.
Performance Dampers add a damping element between two points of the main structure of the chassis, which absorbs distortion and vibrations of chassis.
