All the time we hear MINI owners want to stiffen the chassis on their MINI. Well I've used every chassis brace made and can say the TSW X brace is by far the best. Most chassis bracing systems follow the shape of the front subframe and just connect to the body of the car into the flimsy sheetmetal. This decreases the effectiveness of the brace because the subframe is already supporting the car. Then comes the X brace. The X brace goes across the center of the MINI where the subframe is wide open. It is in an X shape and has a single bar that laterally crosses the car connecting the front control arm bushing mounts. Also the X brace is made of round tubular steel vs others made from flat stock or aluminum bars, making is much stronger. If you have used the TSW X brace please post your thoughts on how well it works, and if you used any other brace prior.
