Overview

With MCA Suspension’s own director being a highly experienced and a successful competitor in national and international drift events including Drift Australia and D1NZ, we have a long history of designing suspension products and setups for drift applications from entry-level, right through to winning national championships.

We’ve also worked with many other top-level, well-known drivers from Australia and New Zealand. It was decided to take this experience and success and put it into a product specifically designed for drifting. The end result is our new Pro Drift suspension product, with unique valving derived from our Fusion 3.0 Valving technology, that’s versatile enough to provide a wide range of grip/traction levels to suit various levels of drift cars and competitors.

Here at MCA Suspension, we offer the most inclusive and diverse warranty for suspension components. This warranty not only covers the usual things like oil leaks but also gas leaks, bearings, bushes and even noises. On top of this, we have an excellent exchange program to help out our customers who are unable to have their cars off the road. 

We even warrant both street and motorsport use and don’t require any specific ride height range or damper setting range to be used, it’s easy to see why the MCA Suspension warranty program is far ahead of our competitors. 

Assembled to order in Australia by our highly trained and specialised team. All of our suspension setups have been designed in Australia by MCA Suspension. Unlike many of our competitors, no copied setups or re-branded products here. 

When you order your Reds we will make a valving pack tailored to work with your cars mods and intended use. 

Not all vehicles are compatible with camber tops, but where possible our products come with camber tops included and fitted. The benefit of camber tops is that they provide a simple and quick way of adjusting the camber. This helps achieve optimum tyre wear and grip for various applications. 

Camber Washers are an MCA specific design/concept. They provide accurate, reliable and secure camber adjustment via the bottom mount. Not all vehicles are compatible with camber washers, but where possible our products come with camber washers included and fitted.

Our dampers come with a simple but powerful 12 clicks of damper adjustment between hard and soft settings. The way the damper adjuster works is it controls the amount of oil that bypasses the valving system. Setting the adjuster harder restricts oil flow making the damper firmer, while setting the adjuster softer allows the oil to flow easier which makes the damper softer. 

Your suspension will be tested and tuned on our damper dyno during the assembly process, prior to being sent to you. This helps provide a high level of quality control and guarantees an acceptable level of consistency between each damper, It can also help us create the custom valving that is sometimes required for our Red Series products. 

Taking our previous internal sealing spec Baner Spec to the next level, Rugged Spec literally doubles down by overhauling the major sealing component designs to build in sealing redundancy. Essentially this means the sealing points inside the dampers now have a backup resulting in the most durable dampers we’ve ever produced.

MCA Suspension products DO NOT use “Base Height Adjustment” this is because the “base height adjustment” method of initial design and height adjustment is extremely flawed, carries no logic and shows a pure lack of understanding of how suspension works. 

Here at MCA Suspension our setups are far more thoroughly designed and therefore use the spring seat height adjustment method for ride height. This is the same system used on top-end suspension products. 

Carrying on from the 2nd version of Fusion Valving, V3 offers increased comfort and a smoother ride with no reduction of outright performance potential. On top of this, damper adjustment range has also been refined to provide a much wider usable range of adjustment.

Regarding vehicle suspension, there are two types of dampers in the way they operate internally. Monotube and Twin-Tube. Twin-Tubes often are cheaper alternatives and don’t have the same potential as monotubes (for example, most factory dampers and cheaper factory replacement dampers are twin tubes). 

MCA Suspension only uses Monotube Suspension, as do all true high-end suspension brands. The monotube design offers better cooling for the internal oil and stops oil and gas mixing, both of which make the suspension damper more consistent and last longer.
