Stage 3 - E46 Race Brace
This product is the final stage in our range of E46 chassis reinforcement products and the ultimate E46 chassis stiffening brace.
For those who appreciate the practicality of a functioning interior, this brace bolts atop our Stage 2 & Stage 2.5 kits and does not intrude or compromise the cabin interior at all providing the original comforts of the car with race car like rigidity.
In the event full boot functionality is needed this brace can be removed.
While stages 1-2.5 provide an all comprehensive reinforcement, making this brace not necessary to prevent cracking, the increase in chassis rigidity does provide further reinforcement to the point it is comparable to the rigidity of a caged car.
This is done by triangulating all four subframe mounts with the rear shock towers with no compromising rod ends or hinged bolt connections for maximum link stiffness.
This brace is sold in kit form and requires welding just like a roll cage. For those who do not have split folding rear seats, the brace is also available in a 4 point configuration.
4-Point = E46 Chassis without split folding seats - Requires Stage 2 installed prior
