    During hard cornering, the MINI is prone to chassis flex that results in poor handling characteristics and the need for the driver to compensate. M7 now offers a way to fix this problem with the M7 Rear Chassis Brace (RCB), one of the additions to the M7 Suspension Solutions line. This modification is perfect for people who want ultimate chassis stiffness without adding an intrusive roll bar or roll cage.

    Our first installed system impressed the customer so much that he was inspired to call back within 20 minutes of leaving our office with reports of how the brace instantly changed his car's traits. He described how the rear end of the car felt heavier and more planted to the ground, and any kind of fishtailing effect felt had gone. Overall, the handling of the car felt tighter and more responsive to the driver's commands.

    The M7 Rear Chassis Brace is a great complement to the immensely popular M7 Under Strut System (USS). Using the two together will give you the best in chassis stiffening without going the route of a roll cage.

    Aside from the benefit of more predictable handling, the Rear Chassis Brace allows for comfortable use of the rear seats. Unlike a roll cage, there are no harness bars or cross members to remove to allow access to the rear seats. The position of the rear seats is also unaffected!

    Going another step further, with some minor modifications you can mount a fire extinguisher or other accessory equipment (not included) to the RCB. As many weekend track warriors find out, a fire extinguisher is often required by driving event coordinators. By attaching the fire extinguisher to the RCB, you can meet the organization's requirements and have safe and easy access to the fire extinguisher if the need for it arises. This eliminates the need to drill into the floor of the car or worry about not having a roll cage to mount the fire extinguisher. Since fire extinguishers mounted to the RCB are in the boot of the MINI, all passenger space is STILL unaffected by installation and use of the RCB.

    Handling without sacrifice of passenger comfort, and a place to mount a fire extinguisher: the M7 Rear Chassis Brace is the perfect addition to the street MINI that sees the track as well.

    Optional RCB Accessory Plates: Easily place and remove these lightweight plates that can hold anything you want to mount on them. Data quasition systems, first aid kits, emergancy supplies...anything! A great addition for mounting all your cool stuff without drilling into floors and interior panels. Easy in and out for quick track-to-street and street-to-track conversion

    Please Note: The RCB currently fits only the coupe.

    Fabulous build quality, excellent fasteners, proper coating too. I took the extra time to trim the "gasket" around the Rr seat latch strike for a completed look. Cant wait to feel how much this tightened up the rear of the car. Monies very well spent. My Thanks to M7's entire team !!! Review by Johnny5 (Posted on 6/16/2018)

    The research that went into this design is outstanding. This strut brace really will make your car rotate more and it is a great upgrade. I'm running the front brace also, and stock springs and shocks. Review by 13 (Posted on 8/2/2017)
