Our newest Tubular Racing Subframe substantially increases grip on FWD cars! It reduces front-end roll and keeps the tires planted flatter to the road surface. Not only that, but this piece is 25% lighter than stock, helpfully reducing the car's natural front heaviness. Additionally, its chromoly 4130 tubular  structure resists twisting and bending forces far better than the heavy but flexy stamped steel OEM subframe. Lastly, all the floppy rubber mounting bits are removed. -no need to upgrade to bronze Solid Subframe Bushings. The connection is already metal on metal. -real deal bolt-on race car sh*t that delivers big on the street, too.

One of the more "magical" benefits to this setup is that installation makes the car roll less around corners without any other changes. Ride quality may actually improve due to increased chassis rigidity. No change to springs or anti-roll bars is involved, but the front end will simply not roll around as much during cornering. This bit of "something for nothing" not only saves money, it helps the car grip harder on rough surfaces via increased suspension travel independence, too.

Front end traction goes up. An understeering car handles more neutrally. This is achieved by raising the front roll-center to be closer to the center of gravity. (This geometric relationshiop is compromised after lowering the vehicle.) It's somewhat esoteric knowledge, but the resuts are huge gains in traction, chassis stability, and steering feel. - a huge confidence booster at speed.

Bump steer angle is corrected by raising the steering rack by a full inch. This relocation means that driveshaft and downpipe clearance isssues are to be expected on 4Motion cars. Avoid this complication by going with our 4Motion Subframe variant (coming soon).

Notes:

  • Raised steering rack position necessitates .25" clearancing at the firewall
  • Will not work with stock Mk4 arms but are compatible with other aftermarket tubular brands
  • Compatible with stock transmission mount (dog bone)
  • Built upon order
