Ray GR 17 Formula Ford

Original equipment adjustable shock absorbers

The GR 17 is the latest in a long line of Formula Fords produced by Raysport International. The South Croydon based manufacturer sold their first car in 1971 and has since gone on to develop an admirable reputation for building strong and well engineered single seat racing cars.

This particular car is owned by Neil Broome of StrongBroo Racing. The Quantum Zero is original equipment on the Ray and is available with one or two ways of adjustment. Neil opted to use the One.Zero which has a single adjuster that affects compression and rebound damping simultaneously.

Neil competes in the Scottish Formula Ford championship, in accordance with MSA Formula Ford 1600 regulations. The regulations as set out by the Ford Motor Company stipulate that the only permitted engine is the Ford 1600 GT ‘Kent’.

The MSA regulations also prohibit aluminium damper casings and separate reservoirs. All of our FF1600 spec dampers have steel bodies and the two-way adjustable Quantum Two.Zero outperforms the canister equipped alternatives.

Where our aluminium shock bodies are hard anodized, our steel bodied dampers are Xylan coated. This low-friction finish is especially thin yet hard wearing and provides superb corrosion resistance.

Quantum can manufacture shock absorbers for all makes of Formula Ford. If you have requirements you would like to discuss, contact us below.
