CUSTOM SOLUTION FOR
OEM FACTORY RACE TEAM
Challenge: Customer failing performance elastomer damper during endurance racing. Task to design and develop a high performance viscous damper to provide optimum vibration control for 24 hour competitions. Must be lightweight with integrated sensor pickup rings. To be used in new mid-mount engine factory race car.
Our Solution: Worked in collaboration to design and develop a new patent pending crankshaft viscous damper. The damper was not only durable for 24 hour races, but for the entire race season.
High level race engine builders approached Vibratech TVD in the mid-1980s to bring the durability and broad frequency range protection of our crankshaft torsional viscous dampers to professional motorsports. Fluidampr® performance dampers originated from this request and have been chosen by championship winning factory race teams for effective broad range torsional vibration control and superior durability.
Today, Fluidampr performance dampers are a fully-owned product of Vibratech TVD and one of the market leading, SFI 18.1 spec, premium crankshaft dampers sold.
