Dave Ainsworth of Dampertech is well-known for supplying a large range of dampers to the kit and specialist car market over the years and is currently purveying GAZ products to our market.

However, he is about to launch his own range of dampers to the market tentatively known as FGD, which are lightweight, UK-made high quality items, for those wanting an upgrade without the possible five grand bill. Although FGD prices have yet to be finalised, you should expect a figure around the £250 per corner mark.

The kitcar market is lucky to be catered for by a wide array of top-notch dampers from Pro-Tech, AVO, Nitron, Black Art, Spax and GAZ, which Dave will continue to supply. FGD’s will simply offer an affordable upgrade solution.

I’ve been privileged to drive a car with these dampers fitted and I found them to be a revelation, fine yet compliant ride, superb cornering and enhancing steering and grip.

Fitments will be available for a number of applications with Cobras and kitcars in general well catered for, in addition to the Jaguar E-type market although they can be custom made to exact length if required…
