May still be able to see some of the brace even with diffuser on as you have rear panel delete.

You are ready for Autox.

New type of Rear Toe Link Brace Kit

First of orders from the second batch of these kits have just gone out.

Kit is now in use on all continents and feedback has been good - no fitting issues - comes with fitting instructions.

Differs from other solutions in that the outboard fixings at the hubs are also replaced with high tensile steel fixings and chome moly Heim joints.

We have 10 more kits for the Toyota engined Elise / Exige in stock and ready to go. We also have 4 Rover engined S2 kits in stock.

SSC Rear Toe Link Brace kit

Demand has been strong and SSC have just produced another batch of these kits and have been sending them to the four corners of the globe.

Some features:

All CNC turned High tensile steel for Hub tapers, Chassis adaptors and Brace tube ends.

CNC turned alum link arms to permit bending rather than breaking in a side impact to preserve the chassis and to keep 'unsprung' weight down.

All movement via 4 of QA1 chrome moly - Teflon lined Heim joints. (US - the best).

Now have been used on over 20 race cars in Australia over the past 6 years.

New type of Rear Toe Link Brace kit

The SSC Rear Toe Link Brace kit has now been in use on race cars for 5 years and is fitted to over 30 race / track cars. Over this time we have had 3 aluminum link arms bend in side impacts during races. The kit brace tube shared the side impact force over the 2 chassis bolts and there was no chassis damage, breaks or sheared parts. While none of the chrome moly rod ends have failed, we recommend automatic replacement of the rod ends after such impacts.

Attached is a picture of a bent SSC kit link arm off a damaged race car. The arm is from the first batch we made and later arms are CNC turned with the centre section knurled to aid in adjustment.

All movement is via 4 QA1 Telflon lined, chrome moly rod ends and the hub fixing is replaced with high tensile CNC turned Swedish steel.
The kit is easy to fit and adjust and despite its strength is the lightest and most complete solution on the market.

The SSC Toe link kit is available in the US from Blackwatch Racing
