Ultra Racing has released details of its stylish and effective upper front strut braces for all Subaru BRZ and Toyota GT86 models. Fitting neatly and easily to all variants, these bars are ideal for those owners looking to increase the torsional rigidity of their car, or to make the chassis more effective for fast road or track driving. Three upper front bars are available, upgrading the two factory bulkhead-to-turret bars as well as adding a smart looking turret-to-turret brace.
Formed using a unique ‘one-piece’ style steel construction, each Ultra Racing bar is far more rigid and effective than many ‘flexible’ or multi-piece designs, meaning that is far more capable of reducing unwanted flex in the chassis of these cars under hard cornering, or when driving quickly. With the front suspension components able to stay much nearer to their optimum pick-up points while under load, suspension geometry is maintained and perfect handling results.
Improving the torsional rigidity of these cars doesn’t just enhance their handling of course, but also gives a real sense of confidence, with the car feeling more precise and telegraphic and steering response being quicker and more responsive. All Ultra Racing bars have been carefully designed on custom jigs, and feature crash deformation characteristics that work in harmony with each individual car’s carefully designed crumple zones. These bars fit in minutes to either the Subaru or Toyota and add a smart appearance to the underbonnet area – as well as the obvious dynamic improvements.
The Ultra Racing braces use the shortest and most direct bracing route possible to ensure maximum rigidity– a fact augmented by the fact that the bolting flanges are a substantial 4mm thick – significantly more than many other aftermarket offerings. With a complete lack of pivot points or hinges, it becomes an integral part of the chassis, offering tangible performance gains for the true driving enthusiast.
