AST/MOTON Coilovers

Big news for all the track heads here,

AST/MOTON apparently are releasing coilovers for our cars! Found out from a distributor here in the States that they should be available for purchase here soon. AST/MOTON make some pretty baller stuff and was used in the M3 crowd extensively.

Wanted to spread the word now as I know many of us here have been looking for suspension to satisfy our mechanical grip woes. :)

They do strut tops sold in the UK and they鈥檙e pricey. 馃檪馃憤馃嚭馃嚫

Got some news regarding coilover kits from AST/MOTON USA that will be available soon for the US Hyundai market. I will be making a separate thread documenting the installation and review of the kit for the Hyundai Veloster N 2019+. There will be multiple options in varying price and performance.

FULL DISCLOSURE:

I'm currently working in tandem with AST Suspension as a sponsor/partner for the kit's US release. If you have any questions please feel free to direct message me.

Stay tuned! (y)

Yes, development is still underway but due to the global situation and some unforeseen differences in the US and Korean models of our car, there is still a bit to go before release.

I want to do a full review here soon but I鈥檇 like to get few more track days and miles with the suspension.
Hey y鈥檃ll, just wanted to write a quick update here.
Development on this kit is finally complete. It took a while but I think you guys will like the final product. To be completely open, there are a few things left to do before AST/Moton can release this kit for sale in the US:

1) Final Track Day Test (with >8,000 miles on the kit)
2) Review of the kit which will be posted on a new thread in these forums and others (wanting to get another outside opinion on the kit)
3) Waiting for some feedback from AST HQ (currently on holidays)

Hopefully this clears some things up and revives this thread 馃槀. As always if you have any questions or interests please feel free to post here or DM.

Nice! Is there one way, two way, and three way adjustable versions? Or is it one version? Will springs be packaged with the set? And what鈥檚 the damage we鈥檙e looking at here? I assume no less than $3-4k minimum?

Also, what were the differences between the Korean and NA markets for the VN?

Yes, there are one-way (5100 series), two-way (5200 series), and three-way (5300 series) that will be available for the Veloster N. Front and rear springs come with each kit and can be modified per request. I currently run the 5100 series and as you can imagine price scales up the higher version you go. AST/MOTON is a top-tier coilover brand so expect some damage. I can not put a hard price on any of the sets as of right now, however, you can get a reasonable estimate by looking at other production kits for different makes/models.

The major differences between the US and Korean model Veloster N are the mounting location of the suspension electronics and brake lines brackets. We found another difference in the front sway bar end link bolt size as well.

Hope this answers your question (y)

Thanks! I figured the damage would be that much.

Interesting that the KDM VN and NA VN are different. I figured they'd be identical. They don't make right hand drive Velosters anymore, so the differences must be government mandated and/or account for general driving conditions in the different regions.

Will there be AST/MOTON top hats available as well? Or will the stock top hats need to be used?

We guess that it鈥檚 a difference in vehicle safety laws and such. However, I can ask AST MOTON for more info if you鈥檇 like!

And yes, top hats will be available. RedVN actually posted them on this thread above. If you want to check them out. 馃憤馃徎

Will these have any warranty? Spring rate options for street daily vs track toy? Can OEM ride height be retained or will it be significantly lower?

All AST and MOTON offer a two-year warranty for all suspension products. You can see more on this here: https://www.motonsuspension.com/terms-of-service

Spring rates are optional and can be changed per customer request. AST/MOTON will be happy to help you find a suitable spring rate for any application. I'll have to check with the US AST branch, but I'm sure from my own experience that OEM ride height is attainable with all series.

Will these tolerate caster (>6.5*) and camber (>-3*) angles unlike the OEM dampers and allow for those adjustments out of the box or require further parts and modifications? It seems the OEM dampers up front blow up when tilted too far.

I'm unsure of how far the caster can be pushed. Something that I'll ask AST about on my next call. However, I know that the camber is capable of > -3 degrees. I'm currently running -3 degrees up front, however, there is room for more.

Was randomly browsing this and saw that you had a 469 number meaning you're local to me. Had to create an account just to bring up this fact lmao.
Any updates on these?
Yes and no. As of right now, everything in terms of getting the kit fit for production has been completed.

However, there are certain obligations and steps that have not been completed on AST's side in terms of the sponsor agreement I made with them at the start of this venture. I will be contacting the AST HQ in the Netherlands to see what exactly is going on and why there has been so much delay on something that should have been done last season since I've been unable to make headway with the US operation.

Apologies to everyone who has been waiting to see the final kit. I am equally disappointed about the delays that have been going on and I am moving to figure out the problem.

I had to cancel an order i was waiting on with another vendor who were currently developing it because they couldn't get the materials from their vendor (literally waited 8 months, I won't name names).

Please update this thread any chance you get, thanks!
