D3 Chassis Bracing

D3 Chassis Bracing is designed to increase your vehicles torsional rigidity with D3 chassis bracing components. These undercarriage mounted chassis braces will greatly increase overall vehicle stiffness without decreasing ride quality. Having a stiff chassis will not only improve responsiveness and vehicle feel, it will also allow you to properly tune your suspension.

Now that the vehicles chassis has been isolated it allows the energy to be transferred to the suspension components that are designed to handle such load. OEM manufacturers have found increasing the stiffness of the chassis to be one of the largest single performance gains in handling without increasing spring rates, spring stiffness, bushing diameter, or shock valving.

These braces will install using OEM bolt hole mounting locations and not require any permanent modifications to the vehicle. Think about it as the performance gains of installing a roll cage in terms of stiffness without compromising interior cabin space and drivability/ride quality.

Features:

Constructed of 100% 4130 Chromoly Steel
100% TIG Welded
Made in the USA exclusively by D3

Interesting. Who would have thought there was that much deflection which could have been designed out of the car to begin with.

Will this work on a non-V wagon?

If it's in stock, how many years to fabricate and ship?


I keed, I keed.
:D

In all seriousness, what kind of weight penalty are we talking here? I expect my `13 Wagon to be a lightweight, nimble roadcourse machine and I want to stay as close to 3200 pounds as possible.

Which track did you test these at and what was the lap time difference?

50lbs total?

Not bad... this makes it much more interesting.

They were tested at just about every track last season of the Cadillac challenge. Times vary between cars and modifications prior to bracing but every driver reported better stability through corners as well as being able to apply power earlier when exiting a corner.

They are about 25lbs together.
