For three generations, the Renault Mégane R.S. has conquered the hearts of sports car fans and is one of the fastest compact sports cars on the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
A huge amount of track day enthusiasts in Europe are modifying their Mégane R.S. for their track days with semi-slick tires, racing brakes, and a KW Clubsport coilover suspension to benefit from the more direct and sportier handling.
Our demanding customers opt for a KW Clubsport suspension with its top mounts in order to adjust the R.S.’s handling exactly to the track layout and tire stiffness and camber at track days in combination with semi-slick tires.
Many track day enthusiasts miss the ability to adjust the camber on the Renault Mégane R.S. factory suspension; after all, adjusting camber values when using semi-slick or sports tires is vital for fast lap times and tire durability on regular track days. The KW Clubsport coilover suspension kit for the R.S. are always equipped with adjustable unibal top mounts.
With the KW multi-valve technology, the Clubsport shocks offer the ability to adjust compression and rebound separately in the low-speed level of the piston rod velocity. The low-speed compression level can be dialed with twelve clicks to adjust the dampening exactly, by reducing or enlarging the cross-section of the valve.
With abruptly increased damping forces, like when crossing curbs or bumps occur, open next to the low-speed valve and the preconfigured high-speed valve, for a precise and fast dampening.
Thus, the Clubsport kit ensures optimum support of the chassis and significantly reduces the body roll. Even on uneven road surfaces, the KW technology further enhances the Mégane R.S. driving dynamics.
In addition, with the 16-click adjustable rebound, the dampers can be ideally adjusted for better body control or ride comfort.
The two-stage rebound valves feature a low-speed bypass that allows low flow rates to flow at slow damper piston speeds, and only at higher speeds does the main rebound valve open.
The KW Clubsport suspension is agile even with short impacts, it reacts more sensitively and provides more feedback to the driver even in fast curves.
On both axles of the Renault Mégane R.S., the KW Clubsport suspension coilover kit also features an adjustable lowering of 20 – 40 millimeters approved by public authorities. The KW Variant 3 coilover also has the same scope for lowering.
We recommend our Variant 3 to Mégane drivers who only use their R.S. in everyday driving and who may only want to take part in a track day once a year.
