The Tarmac 0 is Racecomp Engineering's more budget friendly coilover line, and is based on the KW Variant 1. It is a high quality stainless steel housing with pre-set damping, and uses threaded shock bodes to set ride height and corner balance the chassis. The T0 uses springs more suited toward performance driving and better handling performance than the standard V1, using equal rates front and rear. We (and RCE) feel this is necessary on the 08+ chassis. Up front, the spring rate and wheel rate are nearly the same, but in the rear, due to the design of the suspension, the actual wheel rate will less, so using a softer rear spring results in poor handling and terminal understeer. With these better matched springs the Tarmac 0 provides a much better handling balance over the V1, and most other coilovers.
In addition to the improved spring rates, different colors, and RCE labels, Racecomp Engineering has also modified the damper valving to allow the higher rate linear springs and ensure optimum performance.
If the Tarmac 2s are out of your budget but you are still looking for suspension that will provide good on-track performance the T0 is an excellent choice.
