4 Suspension and brakes
The suspension layout of the Elemental Rp1 features common lightweight uprights and unequal length dual wishbones front and rear.
For optimum dynamic control the rear wishbones are spherically jointed inboard and outboard. The front wishbones have spherical joints outboard but use super pro urethane bushes inboard for improved NVH.
The front and rear Nitron dampers are double adjustable with Eibach springs fitted as standard.
The rear dampers are direct acting to the rear frame, with turnbuckle adjustment for fine ride height changes after corner weighting.
The front dampers are adjusted via inboard rockers and turnbuckle pushrods.
Further adjustments allow optimum performance for road, track, or individual driver preference:
- Steer and Ackerman levels can be fine-tuned via shims in the steering system
- Front and rear camber can be adjusted both via shims and camber plate, thus isolating the true adjustment from camber adjustment
- Front caster can be adjusted through shims on the inboard bushes of the front wishbones
- Roll-centre front and rear can be adjusted via shims on the upright
Contact to the ground is through 215/45 R17 tyres on 17x7J wheels at the front, and 245/40 R18 tyres on 18x9J wheels at the rear (although the exact type and size will vary based on road or track and wet or dry).
The brakes are four pot AP Racing Pro calipers on 280mm x 24mm vented discs all round.Power Train Aero
