This suspension kit to improve the handling of 3L V6 GTVs and Spiders which suffer as standard from poor body control and excessive understeer, partly due to the heavy V6 engine up front. We used the Alfaholics GTV as the development car, already upgraded with the superb Koni sport front dampers, and set about evaluating a range of different setups to improve body control during direction changes and on-limit behaviour, without affecting the ride quality and the day to day usability of the car.
The uprated anti-roll bars have improved turn-in to the point where the steering feels much more responsive and direct, as less of the steering inputs are absorbed and lost through excessive body roll. Whereas the standard car would rapidly reach its limits and wash into understeer, the modified car tacks into turns positively with higher grip levels, inspiring greater driver confidence and enjoyment.
The anti-roll bars are now tuned to provide better throttle adjustability on the limits of grip, making it easier to adjust the line, especially in instances where a corner tightens or there is a surface change. This is particularly noticeable in the wet where the car feels superbly balanced and can even be made to break into mild and manageable oversteer if provoked. We have developed the kit with an adjustable rear anti-roll bar, allowing owners to fine-tune on-limit behaviour according to driver preference.
