034Motorsport X-Brace Billet Aluminum Chassis Reinforcement, B8/B8.5 Audi A4/S4/RS4, A5/S5/RS5, Q5/SQ5

034-603-0008
034Motorsport's B8 Audi A4/S4/RS4 A5/S5/RS5 Q5/SQ5 X-Brace Chassis Reinforcement Upgrade is designed 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.

The beautifully-crafted X-Brace is a direct, bolt-in upgrade for both B8 and B8.5 chassis vehicles, and offers more direct and consistent steering feel, and better handling, without sacrificing comfort.

Description

034Motorsport is proud to offer our Billet Aluminum X-Brace Chassis Reinforcement Upgrade for the B8 & B8.5 Audi A4/S4/RS4, A5/S5/RS5, and Q5/SQ5! 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.
