Öhlins TTX Pro Suspension System (two-way adjustable damping and ride height) utilize the same dampers and technology our sister company, Ahlman Engineering, has used in IndyCar for over twenty years. Öhlins tuned this TTX Pro System specifically for world-class track events in the stock Gen 1 Audi R8 to allow you to be even more connected and confident in this incredible car. The Öhlins TTX Pro Suspension for the Gen 1 R8 is biased toward the track (fairly smooth surfaces), but it can also be driven on the road with safe performance and reliability. See our Ahlman Performance Stage II setup for Gen 1 Audi R8s (OTTX APS2 AUG1R8) developed for those owners whose usage is biased toward the road with some track time.

Öhlins TTX Pro - Advanced Trackday - Gen 1 Audi R8
Being more connected to your Audi R8 with this Öhlins TTX Pro Advanced Trackday Suspension means your R8 telegraphs its every move to you better than ever. You are now one with your car, the steering now follows your hands better than ever as it is direct and linear with a perfect weight and feel. You will also have more confidence because this Öhlins TTX Pro Suspension, developed specific to the R8 for performance, gives you more grip through the entire corner, especially through the bumps. Every bump is more "rounded" with this incredible feel of control as your tires and the R8 stay firmly planted to the track.
Ahlman Performance has specific damper adjustments that give you even more consistent balance through the entire corner from entry through exit as you rocket into, through and out of the corners.
Adjustability in a Clean Package
Highly developed damper adjuster settings for the road or track are supplied with all of Öhlins TTX Suspension Systems we sell. These Öhlins TTX dampers include a two-way adjusters that provide independent low speed compression and low speed rebound adjustment for steering and handling changes, if desired. Ahlman Performance's 25 year chassis design and development background enables us to help you make any fine tuning adjustments for your needs. (In 7 years our customers have been extremely happy with our suspension settings as delivered.)
The Öhlins TTX adjusters work extremely well in a design that one click of over 20 can be easily felt because of the Öhlins TTX solid piston design where all of the damper's flow goes through each adjuster. And the total damper force adjustment range is unmatched in the industry due to Öhlins inherent design. Four-way adjusters (added high speed compression and rebound to adjust for the bumps and curbs) are available on request.
Ahlman Performance and Öhlins TTX Suspension systems are developed to run at a ride height for the best balance of
performance, stance and usability on the road or the track. Further, the
integral reservoir design of this Öhlins TTX Suspension provides one clean
package. There are no remote reservoirs to place and secure like many
Warranty and Durability
Öhlins TTX dampers for these systems come with a two year, unlimited mile warranty against manufacturer defects. Of note, Ahlman Performance has never had an Öhlins TTX damper (well over 200 dampers) require a repair/rebuild since we started selling them in 2014. And this includes having Ford GT Öhlins TTX dampers with over 50,000 miles checked on a shock dyno to ensure they met the original specifications.
Öhlins TTX dampers are extremely durable because of Öhlins attention to durable performance and their origins with motorcycles that have a similar duty cycle to many exotic cars. In turn, Öhlins has designed very specific elements for a harsh environment along with incredible performance. For example, Öhlin's TTX damper shaft seal is of a low friction design and material yet the Öhlins "dry" seal does not lose any fluid over many years. Competitors selling "racing" type dampers often use a "wet" seal to achieve the same level of friction where the competitors dampers lose a little fluid with every stroke. The competitors wet seal in racing is OK due to the constant rebuild environment from week to week. The penalty for this wet seal approach in road cars is the need for rebuilds every year.
The Öhlins TTX dampers are fully and easily re-buildable if and when this is needed many years down the road.
Aesthetics and Craftsmanship - Dynamic Art
The Öhlins TTX Coilovers are works of art, which marry unrivaled form and function. Ahlman Performance calls this "Dynamic Art", an amazing blend of art and engineering, which is part of the larger system that makes up your incredible exotic car. The craftsmanship of this suspension, mainly of aircraft grade aluminum, has a look and feel that every piece has been hand made with unmatched attention to detail. However, the entire package is precision made for incredible consistency of form and function.
