    The K-Brace is the best value under strut on the market. Using the same stock bolt on points that Dr. Mike of the former TSW found to be best we have created the K-Brace. Link here Auto X Cooper
    Like the other systems it improves overall handling of the MINI by adding braces that connect and triangulate to the weak end of the stock sub-frame helping reduce the twisting motion that happens with torsional loading of the chassis in corners.
    The K-Brace gives the MINI better steering response, better turn-in, rotation and reduces under steer when you want it. Under load in corners it gives you more control with less drama when the road under you changes.
    The K-Brace gets better with speed and gives you that edge you want. No clearance issues on lowered test mule.
    Made in the USA with 1 inch OD and .095 thick walled ERW Steel tubing. Fasteners are M10 & M12, class 10.9 with self locking nuts ready to ship worldwide with our two piece jack screw front bar design which makes the front bar stiffer and stronger than a one piece bar.
    Weighs less than 10 pounds.
    Road tested and ready to bolt your R50, R52 and R53.

    Because they become redundant when a full cage is welded in.

    Most likely because the rules do not allow it.
