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 teamed up with BC racing in the late 2000’s as their sole-distributor to start offering the amazing products BC racing manufacturers to the public in The Netherlands, Belgium and currently even many more EU countries.
Coilovers from BC Racing are the pinnacle of adjustable performance for your ride. They”re designed to compete at the very highest levels and take the punishment of circuit and fast road abuse in their stride. For example; The BR Series Street and circuit coil over offer height adjustability via a bottom mount (to maintain full damper travel) aluminium top plates, pillowball upper mounts 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 provides a great “bang for your buck” coilover setup that mixes street and circuit use very well. With an entry-level price coupled with excellent performance, you”ll be hard pushed to find a coilover quite as capable for anywhere near the price tag.
We have the ability to set up your coilover kit with custom spring rates based on your needs. If you need custom specs for spring rate then please email us directly. Be advised, the standard kit that BC Racing puts together is a very good match for most cars and drivers so most people don”t need a “custom” kit! Custom Spring rates will require 1-3 weeks build time since they are built to order.
Camber plates are not available on some kits due to the factory design of some vehicles. Camber plates will generally only work on a “McPherson strut” design. Reason is because some car makers use A-Arm style suspension on their cars, both front and rear. This style of suspension will not support the use of a camber plate, so you would need to use either an adjustable Arm/Link or other camber adjustment setup. For example; If you ever see a listing that says a Civic EK kit includes camber plates, many times it is not correct. These listings are usually generic listings that cover many makes of cars. The kits will generally ship with rubber insert upper mounts, which are ideal for street use, Pillowball plates are optional. However the pillowball plate is just a solid steel bearing, it has no adjustments.
BC Racing Benelux offers the Extreme Lowering kit for most vehicles upon request. This includes a shorter spring and shock combo to allow for a lower overall drop. This will also affect how high the kit can go, so there is a trade off and you should consider this before ordering. We only recommend the “Extra Low” option for those who are looking to go very low, slammed, stanced, etc. We do not recommend this setup for serious track vehicles unless you really know how to setup the suspension around them. If you need your set extra low, please email us. The price costs for an extra low set are 75 euro incl 21% VAT.
