Hand Made, Formula to Street

Hand Made, Formula to Street

Same quality (Hand Made), whether it's for street, GT, or Formula.

Hand Made to order - A single suspension engineer is in charge of assembling each FIGHTEX suspension kit from start to finish, using a consistent process.  Once assembled, the dampers are tested on TODA's suspension dynamometer to ensure proper performance and functionality.  

A vast amount of time and energy is spent in the TODA Racing Formula 3 team working to achieve the "WIN". Setting up of an F3 machine not only requires engine development but also chassis development, in particular the suspension.  An example of the performance required of a formula damper for circuit use has a piston speed of 0.05m/s and a stroke length of 5mm. (For example, an average road car's piston speed is 0.3m/s, stroke length of 100mm). Therefore the quality of each part is critical, not just in the design, or the accuracy in the manufacturing, but also in the selection of material, and the type of heat treatment used. A Formula car is very stiff car allowing comparative tests to be undertaken to show the performance of the suspension.  To help gain consistency, pillow-ball mounts are used to increase stiffness.  All this technology and racing experience are constantly being feed back to you through the FIGHTEX Damper series.TESTING & DEVELOPMENT - FIGHTEX dampers are subjected to simulation tests, track, and gymkhana tests, along with long-term road testing. A special point is made in our street use Type-FS damper series, were a wide range of adjustability in both bump and rebound are included to give the user a wide range of options for different situations.  Final tuning of the suspension kit is carried out in conjunction with a racing driver, and our damper test driver, where demands for improved performance are balanced with requirements for street use.  

All design and manufacturing is done is in house in Japan for highest level of quality.
