About TracTive UK

“Imagine enjoying a series of challenging corners, having the confidence to use more of your engine’s performance, braking later, carrying more corner speed, no longer being held back because your suspension is too stiff, not tuned to your style of driving or the condition of the road …”

I have researched and tested many performance upgrades over the years, but  TracTive’s semi-active electronic suspension system has been easily the best value improvement (besides driver training) I have ever experienced.

I discovered TracTive Suspension late in 2016, being the first in Europe to buy and fit an ACE Road/Track kit to my Porsche 964 Carrera 2, replacing the upgraded Bilstein B6 and H&R lowering springs.

The difference was transformational, no longer having to wait for the front end to settle before fully committing to a fast sweeper. Previously, on my favourite A & B roads, reaching the limitation of the suspension happened all too quickly.

There was absolutely no limit to the speed I could cover cross-country. The suspension was comfortable and compliant, road contact and grip in all conditions were incredible, understeer and oversteer were both predictable and exploitable. Confidence was off the charts!

In fact, I was so impressed, I met the TracTive owners and convinced them to allow me to develop the suspension brand here in the UK and abroad and become their exclusive agent, initially for Porsche, then for all their automotive products. I have been working closely with the Dutch factory to develop and broaden their range across Porsche and other niche automotive products. I now represent TracTive, heading up exciting new projects with builders, development partners and OEM’s.

Steve Bennett's modified 964 Carrera 2 is a rolling showcase of handling brilliance delivered by game-changing electronically controlled damping technology.

After extensive development and testing in 2020 with SW Engineering in the Porsche Club Championship, we were asked by Porsche Club Motorsport to develop a regulated One-Way damper for the Boxster Cup. We took pole on our first outing at Brands Hatch Festival of Porsche!

Throughout 2021 we were Title Sponsors to Porsche Club Motorsport’s 911 Challenge, offering all entrants both One-Way and semi-active electronic ACE options for SC, 964 and 993 race cars. SW Engineering became our Motorsport reseller and won best team, taking Class 2 honours and accrued enough points to win the entire Championship outright!

Every TracTive Suspension is exhaustively designed, developed and engineered specifically for optimal performance and durability. All at a price point well within reach of anyone looking to unlock their car’s full potential.

A game changer? We think so. A growing list of drivers who have experienced the TracTive difference all seem to agree!

In the UK we are standard fit to THEON Porsche, Rennsport, Everrati ev 964 & GT40, Nene Overland Defenders and have been involved in customer builds with Porsche Indies Nine Excellence, Ninemeister for development of 993RS and 964RS specific kits, Paul Stephen’s 993R, KAM Manufaktur 912 Carbon, as well as most leading Porsche, BMW and Toyota GR Tuners and 4×4 specialists.

TracTive are OEM fit on Pagani, including their latest Ltd Edition €2.15m Utopia, RUF’s CTR and SCR creations, Dallara Stradale and EXP, Donkervoort’s latest F22, Ford Bronco, BMW’s S1000RR, XR and R to name a few.

Manual Adjustment Technology Explained

One-Way manually adjustable
TracTive One-Way dampers are based on the knowledge obtained while developing the ACE systems. The dampers are built using the same high-end components as all other TracTive products and offer 20 clicks of adjustment, which will adjust both rebound and compression damping. Each application is custom valved and optimised for the best performance.

Three-Way manually adjustable
The Three-Way system is a no-compromise, race-developed suspension system with independent adjustment of rebound and low- and high-speed compression damping. External reservoirs increase fluid capacity to ensure lower operating temperatures when competing in race events. These reservoirs can be remotely situated, piggy-backed or mounted inline. With this system you will experience blistering reaction times, improved bump absorption and a massive increase in grip that will give you the confidence to push your car to its absolute limits and beyond, while still keeping you safe.

Electronic Semi-Active Damping Explained

ACE Active Controlled Electronics
Our standalone ACE systems gives you independent damping control. You can adjust roll and pitch interference for stable braking, controlled corner entry and after hitting the apex precisely, a better acceleration out of the corner. Curbstones and road undulations are perfectly managed by each individual damper.

Inside each ACE damper is our patented Dynamic Damping Adjustment (DDA) valve. This DDA valve is controlled by a sensitive multi-axis g-sensor and advanced algorithms developed from decades of racing and road testing. A dynamic proportional valve operating as a bypass has capacity for a large range of damping adjustment, and is capable of responding within only 6-10ms.

TracTive DDA, the world’s fastest valve!
Considering the human brain reacts within 150ms, you realise what a gamechanger the TracTive ACE system is compared to all conventional suspension systems.

ACE has the intuitive ability to react to changing road surfaces and conditions. Bumps and compressions are absorbed before you have the chance to notice them. Especially on track through a series of high-speed curves this makes it possible to hold the line without deflection.

Grip levels in all conditions are vastly improved, maximising each tyres contact patch. This gives you the ability to push your car to limits you wouldn’t have thought possible, maintaining safer driving. Electronic damper settings are completely adjustable on your touchscreen, ranging from full road compliance to controlled aggression on track. This is all within reach for you as the driver through the touchscreen display. Five individual settings can be saved which allows you change the setup of the car within seconds.

R-ACE Active Controlled Electronics
R-ACE combines all the benefits of the ACE technology with the addition of secondary low- and high-speed compression adjustments, which are tuned for the application and motorsport discipline.

The low- and high-speed compression damping adjusters can fine-tune damper characteristics to find the perfect balance for individual track setup, driver preferences and race pace improvements. The compression adjusters can be located remotely, piggy-backed or mounted in-line with the dampers.

As the name suggests, R-ACE is best suited for extreme race and endurance applications. R-ACE is the very pinnacle of what is currently possible using knowledge gained from decades of racing at the highest level and electronic controlled damping reacting in a few milliseconds.

Plug & Play
When your car is originally equipped with electronic controlled damping or not, we are able to offer you a Plug & Play upgrade or a completely standalone kit, both for ACE and R-ACE systems.
