Lowering a tarmac Escort Mk1

race smartIt’s always nice to get requests from other big name companies in the performance industry so when we received a message from Jamie Augustine, who works at the MoTeC Research Centre in Oz, we were particularly interested.

Jamie is building a tarmac Escort Mk1 and wanted it to ride quite low. He had already looked at our normal GP6-2069 damper kit and our GP6-2069 short damper kit, but both of those were too long to give him the ride height he wanted.

Not a problem, we can make the dampers to suit the car so we asked Jamie to set the car up at the ride height he wanted then measure the distance between the bottom bolt hole and under the turret to give us the fitted length. Armed with this information we made a pair to fit.

The arches presented a problem as they sit higher than the original ones so the car would be dropped lower than normal. Also the turret height had to be taken into account when determining the length of the damper. We made a pair that were 16”/406mm open, 10 ½”/266mm closed and 11 ½”/295mm on the bump stop.

Jamie’s verdict? His recent e-mail said “The new dampers for my Mk1 Escort have arrived and they fit perfectly.”

MoTec’s motto is “Race Smart”

Yeah! We’ll go along with that.
