Everybody knows that life can have its ups and downs, however in some instances the movement is entirely intentional and welcomed. With that in mind, The Performance Company is pleased to announce that it has secured the official distribution rights for AirREX engineered air suspension products in the UK.
This announcement marks yet another high-profile collaboration for the Northamptonshire-based aftermarket performance and tuning parts distributor. But more importantly, it is a partnership that will enable new show-stopping aftermarket suspension technology to be readily available within the UK tuning scene.
Until now, AirREX has perhaps best been known as the preferred supplier of air suspension systems for exotic Liberty Walk projects – the radical supercars frequently seen at the Tokyo Auto Salon and SEMA shows. No doubt this result was partly based on the ISO-certified quality of AirREX products and an incredibly broad fitment range that encompasses everything from MINI to Murciélago.
In addition to these important qualities, The Performance Company also identified a number of other key features of the AirREX range that it believed would benefit UK customers.
* AirREX digital air management systems are supplied fully assembled and leak tested from the factory, saving up to ten hours installation time compared to rival systems. All the primary control components – valve block, compressor, air tank and purge valve – are contained in a composite wood casing with a smoked acrylic window. Once this case has been secured in position, two simple electrical connections (power and ground) and four ‘plug and play’ plumbing connections (one to each air spring) complete the installation. Because of this, many applications can be fitted in just one full working day.
* The AirREX system is fully digital, wireless in operation and minutely adjustable from an intuitive, hand-held commander unit. Using this unit, each corner can be controlled either individually, in pairs, or collectively. Ride heights can be configured at pre-set levels, while precise air spring pressures can be monitored from the commander unit’s backlit TFT LCD screen.
* In addition to minute ride height adjustment, the well-engineered AirREX struts offer adjustable damping force for precise control of handling and feel, and in some cases front top mounts that can be adjusted to optimise wheel camber. In applications with sufficient space, the struts adopt double convoluted bellows and twin-ply rubber construction for improved control and strength over traditional sleeved bags. Unusually for this market, this setup has been proven in the heat of competition – both on and off the track.
* The electronic stability of AirREX systems is evidenced by the use of 20A fuses within the power feed – half that normally found in competitor systems. This means AirREX systems are less likely to overload the electronics of the host vehicle.
The Performance Company is excited about the addition of highly acclaimed AirREX products to its range of performance and tuning parts. Further details of individual packages, applications and prices will be released in due course.
