This Racing Dynamics rear 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, it's real carbon fiber for extreme lightness and stiffness. 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 rear shock towers together. You will notice the improved handling when cornering hard or on a spirited afternoon drive. A must when the MINI is driven in auto crosses or track events. Shock tower mounting plates are precision machined CNC end plates for accurate and easy mounting. Mounts to existing mounting points, no drilling required.
Fits the following MINI models:
R50 2002-2006 Hatchback Cooper
R53 2002-2006 Hatchback Cooper S
