The newest marvel from Tein isn’t a coilover system but rather an accessory to their existing coilovers. It is a G-Force and Speed sensing EDFC that sets the dampening force according to these two forces; Tein calls it the EDFC Active. The Brand New EDFC Active still allows the driver to adjust the dampening force from within their own cockpit, but now one is also able to configure the unit and correlate dampening force with G-forces!
The EDFC active has built in G-sensors that allow automatic adjustments to the dampening force while cruising on the highway or in a spirited outdoor race. It has 2 aggressive automatic adjustment modes; The “G-Force actuated adjustment mode” and the “Speed-sensitive automatic adjustment mode” (The latter mode would require their optional gps kit). Both of these modes can then be further adjusted in a 16-level, 32-level, or even 64-level way. So there is lots of personalization allowed in the system. The graphs provided by Tein demonstrate the basic concept behind these two modes.
“G-Force actuated adjustment mode” (Arrange & Linear sub-modes shown respectively)
“Speed-sensitive automatic adjustmen tmode” (Arrange & Linear sub-modes shown respectively)
G-Force + Speed Integrated Control Mode (optional GPS kit is required)
This mode goes on to combine both the G-Force sensing functionality of the EDFC Active and the Speed sensing one. The result is two feedback options that give you a tremendous advantage on the road; specially on a fast track with multiple corners or speed fluctuations. Below is the graph for this collaboration of functions from the EDFC Active.
