[Refitting Actual Combat]The King of Cost-effectiveness of European Steel Guns (Part 2)VW Golf 8R Refitting Quick Report!

Appearance installation aerodynamic kit

Chassis comprehensive hardcore upgrade

This Golf 8R has been installed with the front lower spoiler, left and right side skirts, and rear lower spoiler launched by Maxton Design in the appearance part. The special one is the rear lower spoiler with a double-layer design. By adding a row of horizontal In addition to strengthening the downforce under the bottom of the car, the way of the wing plate can further enhance the sporty atmosphere of the rear of the car with the exhaust outlet of the CGW with a thicker pipe diameter. As for the rear wing above the tailgate, it is the original rear wing that every Golf 8R with optional drift/Nurburgring mode will be equipped with.

The rear wing above the tailgate is the factory optional rear wing that every Golf 8R with optional drift/Nurburgring mode will be equipped with.

In the chassis part, the original DDC electronic suspension shock absorber has been replaced with a modified part introduced by Bilstein, and the KW electronic suspension releaser is installed to prevent the computer malfunction light from turning on. In addition, the front tripod of the Golf 8R is made of cast iron, not aluminum alloy like the Golf 7.5R. Therefore, the owner has also replaced it with the reinforced aluminum alloy tripod introduced by HardRace. In addition to reducing weight, it can also Get a more pronounced sense of chassis feedback to help the driver handle the car. In addition, the bearings of many connecting rods in the chassis have also been replaced with hard rubbers introduced by PowerFlex, the purpose is also to limit the range of motion of the suspension, so that it has a sharper handling response.

For the bead and brake parts, the rim adopts the single-piece forged rim launched by the well-known Japanese manufacturer TWS, which has an ultra-lightweight effect, which can effectively reduce the unsprung weight and make the tire rolling more effortlessly. The brakes use the front six rear four-piston calipers launched by Alcon. The models are TA6+ and TA4+. Both groups are semi-competitive parts. Therefore, the brake calipers are all lightweight and have temperature-sensitive stickers, which can help technicians judge. Whether the brake pads are overheated and need to be replaced to prevent heat exhaustion and loss of braking power.

After a short test drive, this Golf 8R found that its 4Motion four-wheel drive system is really powerful. It has a rear axle multi-plate differential and XDS electronic differential lock device, which can independently control the left and right sides of the rear wheels. The torque output of the tires shows that the rear wheels are very flexible during test driving on mountain roads or even on the track, and the understeer problem that was common in four-wheel drive vehicles in the past is rare. In addition, the variable gear ratio steering system, through different driving modes, can find different angles of steering wheel rotation. In competitive mode, in addition to the weight of the steering wheel, the sensitivity of the steering angle will also be improved, which can make the car owner more Fast Raiders consecutive corners. The optional drift mode of this car can let the Golf 8R make the action of the rear tires through inertial traverse, and quickly correct the angle of the body, but after all, it is not a purely rear-wheel drive car, so it is necessary to make an in-situ painting The movement of the circle will be more difficult.

The Golf 8R is equipped with a 4Motion four-wheel drive system, which can independently control the torque output of the left and right tires of the rear wheels. During the test drive on the mountain road or even the track, it can be found that the rear wheels are very flexible, and four-wheel drive rarely appeared in the past. Common understeer problems in cars.
