Ultra Racing releases Nissan Skyline (R34) front strut brace

The new Ultra Racing strut brace for the Nissan Skyline

Ultra Racing has released a new strut brace for all R34 Nissan Skyline models. Intended for owners wanting to increase the torsional rigidity of their cars, or to make the chassis more efficient for fast road or track driving, the strut is formed using a ‘one-piece’ steel construction, making it more rigid than ‘flexible’ or three-piece designs. The manufacturer says this makes the part more effective in reducing unwanted flex in the bodyshell of the car under hard cornering, or when driving quickly. With the front suspension components able to stay much nearer to their optimum pick-up points while under load, suspension geometry is maintained and perfect handling results.

Ultra Racing say the strut should also make the car steer more precisely, with responsiveness increased. Ultra Racing bars are designed on custom jigs, and feature crash deformation characteristics that work in harmony with each individual car’s carefully designed crumple zones.

The Ultra Racing 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.
