From Rebel

This brace does not require any chassis modifications and is completely reversible, designed to be incredibly rigid offering the highest levels of chassis strengthening that can be offered by a chassis brace short of a full cage. With three active points of attachment at each corner to the chassis, each individual area can support incredible loads, and when combined this brace will ensure no chassis flex from the corners, tower collapse nor tower expansion (camber change mid corner).

Designed and executed the "X" brace locks the strut towers together at all 3 points per side of mounting. The resulting product is a super rigid structure that is not in need of additional bars going to the bottom of the strut tower. The cross bar is tied into the "X" sharing torsional load down to each corner of the front of the chassis allowing the forces that would normally twist the chassis to be spread over a large but very stiff area of triangulation using each side of the chassis to in effect brace against itself. Just as was found at IMSA & LeMans, our chassis brace gives you what you need in a lightweight package - everything you need, nothing you don't.
