Ultra Racing Honda S2000 Strut Brace Options

Ultra Racing has released details of its front and rear strut braces for all Honda S2000 models. It is ideal for those owners looking to increase the torsional rigidity of their car, or make the chassis more efficient for fast road or track driving. Formed using a unique ‘one-piece’ steel construction, the Ultra Racing bars are far more rigid and effective than many ‘flexible’ or 3-piece designs, meaning that they are far more effective in reducing unwanted flex in the bodyshell of the car under hard cornering, or when driving quickly. With the front and rear suspension components able to stay much nearer to their optimum pick-up points while under load, suspension geometry is maintained and perfect handling results. 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. The brace uses 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.
