KW clubsport – Performance for racetrack & road
KW Clubsport was developed for customers, who demand a better handling car when participating in track day events, but also require an official road approval to use their car every day. The setup was specifically designed for the Nordschleife using track day tyres. By using the optional available adjustable top mounts, the suspension geometry can be adjusted to the requirements of tires and the intended use. The mentioned adjustment options combined with the independently adjustable rebound and compression damping technology allow individual setup adjustments according to the vehicle load, tyre characteristics and different track conditions. KW Clubsport meets every demand regarding a coilover for the usage on the road and the race track.
KW Clubsport suspension kits are independently adjustable in compression and rebound forces and include high performance racing springs. Racing top mounts are optionally available for further performance. KW Clubsport guarantees excellent handling, best performance, highest agility and fantastic lap times.

Compression and Rebound adjustment.
The rebound adjustment, produced with the widest range of adjustment for that specific vehicle, is carried out by an adjustment spindle at the end of the piston rod. Most of all, the rebound controls the car body vibration, but at the same time the damping range also affects the handling and comfort at low speeds. With the rebound adjustment, the car can be adjusted to the demands of the driver; the driving impression can range from comfortable ride quality to a tighter and tense ride with improved road-holding characteristics.
The compression adjustment takes place at the lower end of the shock absorber by our patented multi-purpose valve. The number of pre-adjustable parameters of this valve allows a wide range of adjustments. The unique low-speed compression adjustment makes this technology unique. Within this damping range, the driving behaviour of the car is strongly influenced. An increasing damping force already supports the car at the compression and therefore avoids rolling motions. The steering behaviour significantly improves.
Aluminium unibal top mount.
Adjustable top mounts are made from high grade aluminium and are included in the application when a technical advantage can be achieved. A special gasket system prevents the intrusion of dirt and moisture into the free-from-play pre-stressed uniball-bearings and therefore prevents corrosion and wear.
- Scaled camber adjustment (optionally also caster)
- Sealed, pre-stressed uniball-bearing in stress direction
- Made of tool steel (100Cr6); 58 to 64 HRC – hard chrome plated,
PTFE lubricant, stainless steel outer ring (X200Cr13)
- Axial bearing as balance on McPherson struts
High-performance racing springs
The new KW high-performance springs are produced from specially alloyed and tempered spring steel, and the increased resilience of the material enables new spring designs with reduced spring thickness. This makes the springs up to 30% more efficient than conventional racing springs. With the same overall length this means:
- more suspension travel
- higher block loading
- lower weight
Further weight reduction can be achieved by shortening the overall length of the springs and adjusting the necessary block loading.
- shorter overall spring length
- improved freedom of wheel movement
- further weight reduction
