Alta Positive Steering Response System For MINI

SKU
AMP-SUS-112
£198.00 £165.00
Complete control of your MINI is important. Increase steering response while braking and accelerating with the Alta Positive Steering Response System (PSRS). The Alta PSRS replaces the front wishbone rear bush with a solid connection. Getting rid of this overly compliant bushing, gets rid of "wondering" when larger wheels and tyres are installed. In turn, Alta offset the bushing to provide added caster, and anti-lift features. This product can be used on the road although is intended for motorsport use due to the increased road noise this product generates.

Complete control of your MINI is important. Increase steering response while braking and accelerating with the Alta Positive Steering Response System (PSRS). The Alta PSRS replaces the front wishbone rear bush with a solid connection. Getting rid of this overly compliant bushing, gets rid of "wandering" when larger wheels and tyres are installed. In turn, Alta offset the bushing to provide added caster, and anti-lift features.

The compliancy of the standard MINI bushing is not something a performance oriented driver is looking for. Under braking, this standard bushing has enough flex in it to cause the wheel to move back and forth .500"! This deflection of the wheel causes drastic toe in and toe out changes under braking. These toe changes will cause steering input changes, cause the tires contact patch to change, and even wondering. When accelerating, this standard bushing causes unwanted wheel hop, and again toe in and toe out changes. During acceleration, the car will want to follow the ruts in the road, as the bushing flexes back and forth. This is one of the most noticeable problems.

Under braking, after the Alta PSRS is installed to your MINI, the wheel will not move front to back. Since there is no way for toe changes to occur, the steering feedback issues, and wondering under braking all goes away! Under acceleration, after the ALTA PSRS in installed, wheel hop disappears, the car will have far less tendency to follow the ruts in the road, and in turn the car will have more front end traction.

Besides removing all the unwanted flex of the standard bushing, our PSRS has an offset to where the bushing is mounted. This adds 0-1.5 degrees of caster to the front suspension. Caster is the angle at which the steering knuckle rotates on. Adding caster makes the car turn in faster by providing a larger contact patch as the wheels turn on the steering axis. Think of it like camber for your steering.

One of the byproducts with how we add caster is the ability to add some anti-lift to the front end. Depending on how much caster is being added, some anti-lift can be added to the car. This reduces the amount of front end lift during acceleration. The benefit to anti-lift is it keeps the balance of the car in check. During hard acceleration, soft springs, and dampers make the car’s weight shift to the back. This in turn removes weight from the front end, weight that the tyres rely on to get grip. Keeping the weight to the front is very important when you have all that power going to the front wheels!

This product can be used on the road although is intended for motorsport use due to the increased road noise this product generates. Fits all models. 'Best suited' for track use.
