    Default Front lower chassis brace

    Hello, im wondering if the front lower chassis brace located behind the engine has any significant effect on handling. Mine has rusted in half and I cant find a new one for it. Maybe installing a strut tower brace has the same effect?

    You definitely need that! I couldn't find the thread, but someone changed theirs recently, because of the same issue. Take a look around the forum, EP3 topics in members' cars, anywhere at all, there definitely was a post about this in the last 1-2 weeks.

    Unfortunately, I couldnt find anything on it. The handling seems the same to me, is there any other reason the bar should be there? Why cannot it be replaced with a strut tower bar?

    There definitely is a very good reason for the bar being there. I'm no automotive engineer, but every component has a very good reason for being in their place, especially braces.

    Okay, ill wait for someone who knows a bit more of them to answer. It might be just to add a bit of rigidity to the chassis since its a type r. Many cars have no brace in the basic model but a brace in a "R" version.
