Evolution 3 Ball Jointed front suspension car magazine reviews

Engineering Improvement to Classic Cars

EVO 3 MGB Ball Jointed Front Suspension. What has been said..........

MGB Evolution 3 “The ultimate front suspension upgrade incorporating modern suspension design and technology; featuring double wishbone, independent coil and damper set-up and unique top and bottom ball jointed axles, adjustable for both camber and castor. Marking a significant milestone in the development of the MGB... Evolution 3 takes the MGB front suspension to its logical conclusion.”

www.mgenthusiast.com “... the new Evolution 3... follows the RV8 suspension in using spherical ball joints at the top and bottom of a new hub assembly instead of a traditional kingpin, but which retains the MGB's stub axle so that the range of tuning parts that have been developed for the MGB in terms of wheels and brakes can still be accessed.“ “The adjustment facility on the Evolution 3 not only means that the characteristics can be tailored to suit your needs, but the settings can also be optimised across the car..."
“As adverse cambers team up with bumps to unsettle the car, it remains composed at all times.” “The beauty of the Evolution 3 is that it can be used with a standard rear suspension..." “...the goal of the Evolution 3 [was) ...to update the original design while staying true to its essential character."

Octane Magazine “There's rather more to the Evolution 3 front suspension, as its £1295 price indicates. ..it does away with the compromised lever-arm damper (which also acts as the top wishbone) in favour of GAZ or Koni telescopic damper and fabricated top wishbone. However, it also replaces the wear-prone kingpin with a standard upright which swivels on modern ball joints and is designed to allow relatively simple camber and caster adjustment. “Does it work? Resoundingly, yes. Still on standard-rate springs, the black Roadster manages the clever trick of giving a more comfortable ride while handling considerably more precisely. On the horrifically bad Fen roads around MGOC Cambridgeshire HQ, the little B copes admirably with dips, bumps and abrupt camber changes. The surprise comes when the tyres - common-or garden 185/55s - begin to squeal long before the suspension shows any sign of trauma. That wouldn't be the case in a standard B."
