C8 Chassis Cross Brace, improve rigidity by 8%, performance accessory:
- Increase the performance and strength of your 2020-2024 Corvette Coupe. Z06 / LT6 version avialable in late May.
- Improves torsional rigidity by 8%, which improves your C8\'s steering feel and handling precision on the track
- Customer review and install video discussing how C8 Chassis Brace reduced body style=\"font-family: Arial; font-size: large;\">The C8 chassis cross brace is made from carbon fiber tubes and polished 304 stainless steel hardware. This makes the brace extremely strong yet lightweight.
- The design\'s straight lines preventsflexing and spring and thus maximizes rigidity
- By mounting to the rear strut mounts compressive and tensile loads are directly controlled, eliminating diagonal movements of the strut mounts.
- Makes a huge impact on your car\'s engine appearance
- Installation is done easily by removing 2 bolts and 4 nuts, installing cross brace and re-installing those same bolts and nuts.
- The brace does not install overthe Engine Appearance Package (EAP) which prevents attaching to a non rigid base.
- Directly addresses an issue the lead chassis engineerfor the C8, Ed Moss,pointed out. He said:
“The trick for torsional stiffness is that you’ve got to get the load through the tunnel and back to the This brace accomplishes this \"trick\", transfering load from the tunnel to the shocktowers.
- The strut cross brace utilizes straight lines and overengineered components to maximize strength and rigidity, making it far stronger than the actual loads on the brace. Dome shaped all carbon fiber braces that do not attach to the strut provide far less torsional rigidity improvement (4% vs 8%).
- Video of the C8 Cross Brace undergoing a Stress Analysis cycling between no load and maximun load conditions.The high safety factor insures durability as well as preventing flexing and thus maximum chassis stiffening benefit. Those that have tracked the car attest to the improvements in handling, feel and lap times. All C8 Cross Braces are tested to 5 times maximum load style=\"font-family: Arial; font-size: large;\">Adds strength in the event of a side or rear-end collision.

We are in a soft launchmode as other products which are wrapping up development, they will then officially launch all-at-once in about 1 month - so stay tuned for Speedway Composite\'s entire line-up of Engineered Accessories.
The pictures include those from a chassis testing facility where the chassis torsional rigidity was measured with and without the strut brace to measure improvement in flexing, using the same methods as Indy, Speedway and F1.
