Finished with stylish gloss black ends, the SUMMIT chassis reinforcement strut bar for theFiesta MK8 equipment improves chassis rigidity & reduces un-wanted chassis flex. Braces are usually found on rally stages and drift events, to enhance the chassis handling, these precision made braces are now available for the MK8 Ford Fiesta.
Brace’s are not hollow tube, they use a monocoque Aluminium triple forged tube shaft, which makes them incredibly lightweight but are also exceptionally strong.
A strut bar also called a strut brace or strut tower brace is a connecting rod that laterally (from left to right) links your suspension strut towers. This reinforces your chassis by tying these two stress points together. The strut bars purpose is to make your car easier to handle when being driven hard.
Strut bars do not necessarily increase your cornering speed or lap times. Instead, they’ll make your car more predictable when cornering at speed. This is the result of the strut brace redistributing excess pressure from one strut tower to the other. This significantly reduces chassis flex through tight corners and helps to keep your steering stable even at high speeds. Installing a front upper strut bar increases the overall rigidity of your car.
Upgrades your chassis performance and thereby improving you cars handling and driving experience.
Fits both, left and right hand drive models.
