FORMULA 1 AND FORMULA 2 RACING SIDECARS
At Maxton all of our shock absorbers are built to order, because of this we can manufacture shock absorbers specifically designed for Sidecar racing. As well as the shock being the correct length and eye sizes, we have also strived to perfect and design the best valving or damping rate for each manufacturer of sidecar. The combination of both these factors means we supply preset shock absorbers to suit the make of sidecar, the rider weights and what you use the sidecar for. We supply shock absorbers to all the major manufacturers of Racing Sidecars :
As well as supply shock absorbers directly to the manufacturers, we also supply shock absorbers for different makes of sidecars to replace the shock absorbers already fitted such as Louis Christian, Joe Heys, Derbyshire and a number of one off chassis.
- Louis Christen from LCR
- Terry Windle
- Dave Molyneaux
- Tony Baker
- Joe Shelbourne
- Mike Richards from M.R Equipe
FRONT SHOCK ABSORBERS
For the front of a Formula 2 sidecar (and the front of a Baker Formula 1 outfit) we supply a pair of Maxton Twinshocks. They are Alloy bodied dampers, externally adjustable for rebound damping, they have spherical bearings at either end to reduce the load on the seals and have threaded preload adjusters for infinite adjustment.
For the front of a Formula 1 LCR outfit we supply a Maxton unit and remote reservoir.
REAR SHOCK ABSORBERS
We supply three different models of rear shock absorber for Formula 1 and Formula 2 outfits :
Maxton Gas Shock - This is adjustable for rebound damping, compression damping and preload as well. Because it contains gas it has a bigger range of damping adjustment and does not lose it's damping or "go off" in long races. The gas shock is recommended if you have a Formula 2 outfit and intend to compete at the T.T.
Maxton Gas Shock with remote reservoir - This is adjustable for rebound damping, high and low speed compression damping and preload. Because it contains gas it has a bigger range of damping adjustment and does not lose it's damping or "go off" in long races. The gas shock is recommended if you have a Formula 2 outfit and intend to compete at the T.T. This is the shock used on Dave Molyneaux and Tony Baker and Terry Windle outfits.
TO ORDER SHOCK ABSORBERS WE NEED YOU TO FILL OUT A SPECIFICATION SHEET FIRST. THIS IS TO MAKE SURE WE MAKE THE SHOCKS CORRECTLY.
