Cross Brace for your E30

This will fit all e30 except the IX. I have test fit it on an M3, 325is,318is and cars with large sway bars and large down pipes as well. My cross brace will increase the rigidity by connecting up the sub-frame to the frame rails.
A must have for Vert owners and any one looking for the better ride. R3V pricing is $269 + shipping. This includes all hardware needed for the install with or with out a skid plate. If you want both $449 is the deal shipped

"For anyone that made the e30 picnic, ejnight "RACE SKIDS..." was there and he was displaying a beautiful prototype of his front X-brace. Of course, I had to buy it and have since installed it on my Coupe.

It wasn't a "night and day" difference like is is on the Verts but after a few weeks of driving I enjoy the increased rigidity over bumps and even roads. Less pendulum motion from the motor, less steering wheel shake.

It just feels tighter.

If he decides to produce it will be the one to have. "

Well I have and Here it is, I hope you like it.


This is a proto type on my car. the new one is a little stiffer with the bend in the rear of the Race skids logo.

I'll have my car up on a lift tomorrow and will take some pics of mine installed.

It took me a while to really appreciate it but now it's something that if I took off, I'd think my car felt like crap. On smooth pavement it doesn't do much but on any kind of broken or rough pavement it's beautiful.

Nice. Why didn't you make it in a cross X design? Also does it bolt to the steering rack bolts?

I like what I see but how about a better pricing on the bundle for a real group buy r3v members only with a minimum of say 25 set?

I'd be down for a set, anyone else?

the X design idea is complete rubbish.
I'm much more impressed with this brace because it appears to not allow for the twisting and pinching weak point as found on the mason brace.

To get better clearance for lowered cars and to work with big sway bars and exhaust.

The retail is $279 so it is already discounted. I think its a fair price.

Any pics from the side? How low does it hang? I already scrape my exhaust on big speedbumps and steep driveways, so hopefully this isn't suuuuper low.

It does look super awesome, though.

how much for a fellow race skid sporting, race skid whoring member of R3V??

I tell everyone where I bought mine and how much I love it. It really is a nice piece. this new X brace design just gives me a bigger hard on for E30s.


***Cliff Notes***
I bought a skid plate from you

How much for a returning customer?

LMK
