Built from the ground up, we have partnered with Ohlins Suspension - the world's foremost leader in damper technology - to pioneer the gold standard for Tesla Model 3 performance coilovers. Found on hyper-cars from Koenigsegg to Pagani, Ohlins dampers represent the pinnacle of modern suspension technology. This suspension blends track-ready dampening performance with the compliance and comfort required for street use, and maintains an extremely wide range of dampening adjustability.
Designing a shock dedicated for either street use or performance use is relatively simple. However, creating a single damper that is effective in both arenas is significantly more challenging from an engineering perspective. Öhlins' exclusive patented Dual Flow Valve (DFV) technology, along with precision machining, internal seals, and Öhlins buttery smooth 1304 shock oil, yields an ultra-low hysteresis shock which can damp bumps over fractions of a millimeter. For the end-user, the result is a suspension that provides maximum grip in the corners, yet a firm-but-supple ride quality on the street. Those who have driven this setup have commented that the Redwood Motorsports Ohlins kit is surprisingly more comfortable than stock, yet one of the highest grip/performing coilovers they've driven. Best of both worlds!
A full year in development and testing with top motorsports manufacturers has paid off with what we believe is the Gold Standard that other shocks will be measured against. Not only the highest performing suspension available for the Tesla Model 3, but with the most supple ride quality - hands down.

Technical Details The precise control of the Ohlins DFV dampers are both due to the patented Dual Flow Valve pistons, as well as the high attention to detail and component tolerances, typically found on much higher-end shocks. The end result is a damper that has the ability to optimally track the movement of the road surface, increasing tire contact patch and therefore total available grip. Ohlins patented Dual Flow Valve piston contains center and side exit oil flow paths, which allows for separate control of low-speed, high-speed, and ultra-high-speed dampening. The DFV has the unique ability to remain firm when it needs to (for body control movement), reduce dampening force (for bump control), and significantly bleed-off dampening force under high linear accelerations (to absorb abrupt and sharp impacts) instead of transferring them to the chassis. This makes the Ohlins DFV unsurpassed on both the track and street, as berms, mid-corner bumps, and other surface irregularities can be soaked up on track, as opposed to upsetting the chassis.
The same ultra-high-speed dampening force is helpful on the street, as a firm-but-supple ride can be maintained for optimal body-control handling, while potholes and large impacts are readily absorbed during day to day driving.
An additional feature of the DFV is its internal temperature correction needle-valve, which meters the flow of shock oil to compensate for changing oil viscosity, based on shock temperature. This needle valve closes for cold temperatures where the shock oil is thicker, and opens to compensate for thinner oil viscosity when the shock becomes hot - resulting in absolutely consistent performance in all circumstances despite the internal temperature of the damper.
