    THE WAIT IS OVER! The DSC Sport Tractive RT Active Suspension Kit is Now Available!

    After months of R&D, we are proud to release our DSC Sport Tractive RT shock package for the Focus RS! The Tractive shock features the patented electronic DDA Valve that has a reaction time of 6 milliseconds. This is the fastest acting valve on the market. The shocks are built to extremely high standards to be that of a factory race damper. The inverted front strut and also the rear shocks have the lowest point of stiction from anything we have tested on our shock dyno. Driving the car with this shock package is like driving an entirely different car than what we purchase on the showroom floor. The car is now nice to drive. Compliant over bumps, much for comfortable on the normal commutes and reacts to any inputs that you throw at it within 6 milliseconds. The RT package that we now have available uses the factory top mounts and camber plates and we have worked with Eibach to develop a spring rate to work best with this project. The benefit of going with this damper package controlled by DSC Sport is that we can use less spring rate and use all of the shock by programming what we need. This makes for a nicer riding car that handles better. As the G's increase, the damping increases which is like increasing the spring rate as you drive into the corner, brake hard or accelerate.

    Right now our first five sets are on the way and are three weeks out. Pre-order is now available in the link below. Be sure to get on board before the first batch is out of stock! More are being built as the others are in transit.

    If you already have the original module and need it upgraded, what is the pricing for update and the needed hardware? Do you offer compatible camber plates? Do you recommend or offer complimentary sway bars?

    There is no cost in updating your controller! The calibration file is available for download from our website. In regards to camber plates, we are in the process of developing our RTx package. That will consist of our billet camber plates and top mounts plus a possible spring change for "track use". We have not finalized that package yet, but the RT package can easily be converted by switching out the camber plates and top mounts. In regards to sway bars, everything we did to test and develop this product was done using the factory sway bars. I am really amazed with how well the car worked with the stock bars and our shock setup. Braking deep and bringing the car up into the corner just about flat at the apex of the corner felt extremely confidence inspiring and this was with stock bars. The car rotates to the corner just right and power down off the corner is amazing. I did not see the need to have a sway bar kit while testing.

    So the current pre-order price of $4150 does or doesn't include the DSC controller? Hard to understand as the verbiage is a bit loose and all of the photos shown have the controller in them. However some fine print exists at the bottom that alludes to that price only covering the shocks/springs.

    I saw this on the website: "Retail Price: $4150.00 Complete Suspension Package without Controller (3 week back order. We are currently taking orders on a first come first serve basis. Order today to be assured your tractive suspension package.)"

    So it looks like $4150 does NOT include the controller even though it's pictured in the kit...

    Thank you. The coffee really hasn't kicked in this morning haha. Definitely a bummer on price IMO. I believe it's totally worth it if it delivers on everything it says (essentially giving a Focus the quality suspension of a 911 type car). But at $5400 for the full kit....this won't be a purchase I'll be making for a long time. Guess I'll start saving and hope these still exist in 2 years.

    So by the time you add on the the controller and camber plates you are at 6k. Nice but pricey.

    That is very deceiving... should not picture the item with it if it is not included... so close to $5300 for the full set up. That’s a good chunk of change...

    Need to put an option on the order page to "add controller" to reduce confusion.
