The factory Audi front subframe brace is manufactured from multiple pieces of stamped steel, and allows for performance-hindering chassis flex under load. This torsional flex can result in improper suspension geometry and alignment when cornering, and leads to vague steering feel and lack of steering precision.
The 034Motorsport X-Brace is a billet aluminum chassis reinforcement to replace the factory front subframe brace to increase torsional rigidity, resulting in improved steering feel and handling performance. Machined in-house from T6-6061 billet aluminum, the 034Motorsport X-Brace is engineered to outperform the stock welded, stamped steel part and ensure that suspension geometry is not compromised by chassis flex under hard cornering.
This chassis brace upgrade was thoroughly tested by 034Motorsport and independent Audi enthusiasts before release. Installation is very simple, can be performed in minutes, and is completely reversible.
