MPP has worked tirelessly on the Model Y to achieve ride quality that is as close as possible to what we achieve with the Model 3. Taking full advantage of the twin-valve technology offered by KW, MPP has improved the characteristics of their Comfort line, introduced dampening adjustability, and also gained the corrosion resistance of INOX stainless steel. If you want the absolute best road suspension for the Model 3, look no further.
Damper valving and spring rates designed for road and touring. With the compression and rebound adjustment at only intermediate settings, the ride is more comfortable than OEM suspension.
0-30mm adjustable lowering height range
Specially designed to provide the highest quality driving experience, no drawbacks such as noise, vibration or harshness.
Two-stage patented TVR-A (Twin Valve Rebound – Adjustable) technology with significant and noticeable changes with every click. Unlike some adjustable coilovers that claim to have many clicks or a wide adjustment range, these coilovers have true motorsport damper technology and the adjustment in the low-speed range is over 300%
Two-stage patented TVC-A (Twin Valve Compression – Adjustable) technology with significant and noticeable changes with every click. Full soft to full stiff compression is over 350% difference in forces at some damper speeds.
Height adjustable from 10mm above the OE Performance Y ride height to factory ride height down to 40mm lower.
INOX stainless steel bodies for optimal corrosion resistance and durability
Progressive bump rubbers tuned to engage only in the most aggressive compressions while keeping the chassis composed.
Utilize the OEM upper hats for minimum NVH transmitted into the cabin. No spherical bearings or floating top hats to clunk and transmit NVH
Aftermarket suspension is something that can make or break the enjoyment of a vehicle. Even more-so with SUVs, suspension tuning is so critical to the ride and enjoyment of your vehicle. With an SUV there are new challenges that don’t show up with a sedan. For starters you have larger, heavier wheels and tires which carry a lot more momentum when you hit a bump – they want to keep coming into the chassis! Secondly, there is typically a large open cabin, which means NVH is amplified and any road noise from the rear dampers is exceedingly loud.
Additionally, when lowering SUVs which are naturally much higher, there are geometry problems to deal with. In the case of the Model Y, the base vehicle is quite high and for the performance variant, Tesla achieved their lowering by using shorter springs only – while retaining the same bump rubber lengths. As a result, the factory Performance Model Y actually engages the bump rubbers at all times. This means you’ll see a huge difference in the ride of our suspension compared to OEM over large compressions and potholes where the OE bump rubber would be really making the ride uncomfortable. With all of the above said, you can imagine it was a pretty difficult challenge for MPP to develop dampers that ride as well as the Comfort Adjustable’s they have available for the Model 3. Miles of road testing with with a MoTeC data logging and tracking everything from damper positions and bump rubber engagement to achieve a full model of the damper, spring, and bump rubber forces to help us hone in on the exact source of any harshness to tune it out without resorting to extremely soft and floaty springs. After thousands of miles of driving, multiple trips to the racetrack, and tearing the suspension apart and putting the car back together over 10 times in a few short months, MPP finally achieved the optimum setup. The platform is always in control, it does not bounce and heave excessively, nor does it jar you while hitting large bumps. In fact, the faster you go the smoother the ride becomes as the dampers can really show their strengths once some energy is put into them. This suspension kit certainly does not ride like an old Cadillac, and we wouldn’t want to give that impression! At full stiff the ride is comparable to an M-platform BMW, at medium settings closer to an F-Sport Lexus, and at full soft more comparable to a standard version Lexus suspension. The range of adjustment of the dampers is impressive – you can truly feel each click and we have recommended settings to cater to your individual preference.
Custom designed for the best ride possible without losing that sporty edge.
