This Racing Dynamics Front strut brace is manufactured for the MINI Cooper R50/R53 with a 100% carbon fiber center bar. It's not carbon fiber wrapped around aluminum or carbon fiber look, but real carbon fiber for extreme lightness and stiffness. It's lighter and stiffer than aluminum.
This strut tower brace is a precision machined structural component that will increase chassis rigidity for the driving enthusiast. It increases the chassis rigidity by tying the two front shock towers together. You will notice the improved handling when cornering hard or winding through the mountains. A must when the car is driven in auto crosses or track events. Shock tower mounting plates are precision machined CNC aluminum for accurate and easy mounting. Mounts to existing mounting points, no drilling required.
This Racing Dynamics strut brace looks great in your engine compartment and outperforms other strut braces on the market.
NOTE: Installation on MINI Coopers does require removal or modification of the battery cover.
Fits the following MINI models:
R53 2002-2006 Hatchback Cooper S
