BC Racing is originally founded in the late 90″s and they have been a well known industry leader to this day and their products are found in all types of vehicles ranging from complete race-cars to everyday drivers. BC Racing Benelux / Showoff Imports partnered with BC Racing in the late 2000’s as their sole distributor to start marketing the great products BC Racing produces in the Netherlands, Belgium and even more EU countries.
Coilovers from BC Racing are the pinnacle of adjustable performance for your car. They are developed to compete with the big boys and can handle the violence of the track well. Example; The BR Series street & track coilover offers height adjustment via a mount at the bottom (to maintain full damper travel) aluminum topplates, ball bearing mount for the top and a dust boot to protect the damper seals.
The dampers themselves incorporate a large 46mm diameter piston, housed within a 53mm diameter damper body to ensure maximum oil capacity. Damping has been worked out so carefully that BC units are filled with a viscosity of oil that favorably alters the damping to take account of the oil heating up during hard use. The large capacity of the oil reservoir in BC dampers reduces temperature fade of the oil keeping damping performance at the highest possible level. BC”s damper units are also pressurized with nitrogen gas that reduces the aeration of the oil and improves damper consistency and damping quality.
The BC range offers value for money; A coilover setup that mixes street and track great. With an entry-level price coupled with great performance, it becomes difficult to find a comparable coilover system for a similar price.
We have the possibility to give your coilover kit custom springrates based on your needs. If you need custom specs regarding jumprates, send us an email. Keep in mind that the standard kit developed by BC Racing is a very good match for most cars and drivers, so most people do not need a custom kit. Custom kits have a 1-3 week lead time because they are made to order.
Camberplates are not available for some kits due to the design of the car manufacturer. Camberplates mainly work only on a McPherson strut. The reason is that some car manufacturers use an A-Arm style suspension for their cars both front and rear. This type of suspension cannot support the use of camber plates, so then you either need an adjustable arm/link or another camber adjustment setup. As an example; If you ever come across a post stating that a Civic EK kit includes camber plates, this is often incorrect. These messages are generally generic plats used for a large number of cars. These kits will mainly come with rubber mounts for the top, which is ideal for street use, Ball bearing plates are optional. Although the ball bearing plate is only a solid steel bearing it needs no modifications.
BC Racing Benelux offers the extra low kit for most cars on request. This includes a shorter spring and shock combo to allow for a lower drop. This also affects how high the kit can go, this is something you do need to consider before ordering. We only recommend the extra low option for those who want to go very low, slammed or stanced. We don’t recommend this setup for serious track cars unless you really know how to set up the suspension. If you need an extra low set, send us an email. The price for an extra low set is 75 euros incl. 21% VAT.
