Our first RSR was built using an RSR engine brace sourced elsewhere. At the first engine rebuild, we noticed the engine brace - the mounting bar which spans the rear of the car between the engine mounts - had twisted/distorted at the mounts, so we decided to make an EB version with reinforcements at this point.
Our product designers did a detailed finite element analysis with our CAD software, which projects where structures bend or twist, and indicates the distribution of stresses and displacements.
We could see where the problems were occurring and our own version of the engine brace solves these issues. We have run these engine support bars on our own cars for a number of races and there is a subtle difference, but more importantly a greater confidence in reliability.
With all edges and welds dressed, the EB Motorsport engine support bar is finished in satin black powder coat. Looks great and a bargain price!
