This Racing Dynamics rear strut brace for the MINI Cooper R56 is manufactured with a 100% carbon fiber center bar. This strut brace is 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 MINI R56 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 winding through the mountains. 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. Installation requires removal of the OEM cargo extender latches and will cause the seats to sit slightly more vertical than before.
Fits the following MINI models:
R56 2007-up Hatchback Cooper and Cooper S
