Gaz GOLD Coilovers - Review Features
These kits are aimed at the serious track day and motorsport market and can be built for tarmac race and rally, gravel rally, drift, drag, sprints and hill climbs.
They differ from their GHA counterparts in a number of ways. The Gaz Gold coilover kits use larger diameter dampers and springs designed to withstand the side loadings when cornering hard on semi and full slick tyres and the larger oil capacity keeps the dampers cool under harsher motorsport conditions to eliminate damper fade.Complete Bolt In Kit Supplied
Please refer to the Kit Configuration section at the top of each listing to understand how your specific kit is built but generally all Gaz Gold coilover kits come with 4 dampers fitted with 4 springs and a height adjustment toolLarge Diameter Bodies
The Gaz Gold coilover kits use a 62mm diameter damper body for extra oil capacity over lesser brands, The extra damping oil maintains its temperature under motor racing conditions. Keeping the oil cool prevents oil cavitation and frothing to maintain consistent damping over the course of a race or trackday.Race Coil Springs
2.5 Inch diameter race coil springs are used which can be supplied in various lengths and spring rates as described in the custom set up on section in the product listings.Bolts to Original Suspension Mounts
Unless otherwise stated in specific product listings, the Gaz Gold Coilover kit will bolt up to your existing suspension mounting points. This is important for many race formula where the regulations do not permit chassis modifications to accommodate non original types of suspension. It also means that fitting the kit is simplicity itself!On Car Ride Height and Damping Adjustable
There is no need to remove the units from the car to adjust ride height or damping so you can quickly alter the settings to dial the car into any given track, weather conditions or driving style. The ride height adjustments system uses a course acme thread for ease of adjustment and the damper adjuster knob is on the side of the unit.Simultaneous Rebound and Compression Adjustment
On Gaz Gold coilover kit a single control knob on the side of each damper adjusts rebound and compression damping simultaneously. This simple adjustment method allows you again to quickly alter the settings to dial the car into any given track, weather conditions or driving style. The idea here is that you will be driving the car more than playing with the settings! That said, for those drivers needing more adjustment, we can supply Gaz Gold coilover kits with separate rebound and compression damping (external reservoir).Lightweight Components to Reduce Weight
In the design and construction of Gaz Gold Coilover kits lightweight billet alloy components are used where possible. The bases, end fittings, seats, lockrings, rod guides and gland nuts are all alloy. This has the benefit of being light in weight whilst retaining a huge strength to accommodate the bumpiest of tracks and harsh motorsport use.Hardened Piston Rods
Gaz Gold dampers use a 22mm diameter induction hardened piston rod that is hard chrome plated for the additional strength and durability required in motorsport conditions.Multi Lip Sealing
The Gaz Gold dampers units are fitted with multi lip seals for extra reliability and leak resistance. The outer seal is also a metal encased wiper to clean the piston rod. This in turn extends main seal performance and oil retention under extreme conditions.Gas Charged Dampers
The damper units in the Gold range are fitted with a gas cell in the outer reservoir and filled with a high viscosity index multi grade oil. By pressurizing the oil with the gas cavitation and oil frothing is prevented which reduces damper fade for a more consistent damper in motor racing conditions.Anti Corrosion Finish
The outer tube is steel with a black zinc coating and all outer alloy components are black anodised to provide the best anti corrosive finish possible.
