  • Verkline Adjustable front race lowered wishbones Audi TT TTS TTRS 8J RS3 S3 A3 8P VW Golf Mk5 Mk6 Scirocco Seat Leon

    Product Ref: WAS-011

    When using the car on the track the cornering forces are bending the rubber in the wishbones. Thus changing the desired geometry of the car. This can lead to slower track times and ineffective tyre usage.

    For that reason Verkline have come up with uniball control arms. Verkline race wishbones use metal to metal uniball just like used in Porsche RS line (GT2RS, GT3RS).

    Most of the cars used on track are lowered compared to stock. Lowering the car has the undesirable effect of moving the chassis lower than the balljoint and excessive lowering results in the situation where the wishbone is pointing upwards at the wheel end. This means you need more steering lock when cornering, the car is sluggish to respond and doesn’t feel as communicative.

    Using same T45 tubing as in WRC cars, our wishbones provide increased stiffness and extra adjustment. All factory parts bolt up to this unit, no other modifications are necessary.

    This version can ONLY be used with Verkline front tubular subframes.

    Product functionalities:
    – Adjustment both caster and camber (up to -4.5 degrees)
    – no rubber to bend, you will not loose the geometry set when doing aliment
    – corrected bump steer
    – works ONLY with the Verkline tubular subframe (WAS-560). For standard subframe use this product. WAS-010
    – enables removal of the wishbones with out the need for removal of the subframe

    Features:
    – CNC machined 7075 aluminium insert and anodized in silver
    – T45 (BS4T45 to BS4T100) tubing imported from UK and S355 metal sheets
    – proven motorsport M18 uniballs (the same type Verkline use in their Lancer EVO X kits)
    – plug and play to use with the car inc xenon sensors

    What is included:
    – two (pair) front tubular wishbones (control arms) with all hardware for install
    – two (pair) CNC billet 7075 aluminium wishbone arm mounts
    – set of spacers to reposition the steering rack and front anti-roll bar. Both 20 mm up.
    – four rubber caps for uniball protection

    T45 is a very unique seamless carbon based steel tube that has been used in many applications in different industries. It is stronger than Co-Mo 4130 tubing that also used in motorsport. It is widely used in the aerospace sector in equipment such as pilot’s seats and crew’s seats due to the materials ability to withstand high G forces without snapping or splitting. This material is a Carbon Manganese based and conforms to the full Aerospace Specification laid down by British Standards.

    Properties
    Tensile: 700 – 900MPa,
    0.2% Yield 620MPa minimum
    Hardness Test: 201min – 262 max HB or 210min – 275max HV.

    Note: It is necessary to remove rubber o-ring (1K0423187) in order to fit steering rack in new higher position.

    IMPORTANT NOTICE: Sold only for off road, race track and racing applications. If the buyer wants to use the parts elsewhere it is their responsibility to arrange appropriate documents and approvals. We strongly advise to mount the subframe in a qualified and experienced workshop.

    Additional information – benefit of using the Verkline lowered version of the wishbones.

    One of the first things to do in improving stock car cornering performance is lowering its centre of gravity, by decreasing its ride height. Unfortunately, it also changes negatively original suspension geometry and kinematics. To prevent it, Verkline wishbones and subframe combo provides modified suspension mounting points, which corrects bump steer and roll centre for better car handling and responsiveness.

    Besides correction of roll centre height, it also helps with camber gain (change of camber angle within suspension travel). In circuit racing, priority is to optimize it, to reduce positive camber in corners for better grip and that is what the Verkline additional mounting provides.

    To address this issue they have come up with the Verkline wishbones + subframe set. WAS-011-6

    The front mount of the wishbone is lowered on the subframe mount. Lower mount hole is standard height, higher mount hole is to be used with Verkline lowered wishbones. WAS-011-7
