Under Car Bracing

I know pierce motorsports has their 2/4/6 point brace and their rear torsion bar for the rear axle but has anyone come across the Ultra Racing lower bracing?? I stumbled across them on ebay and they have some bracing that Pierce doesn't have. Mainly the bracing that runs down the center-side area of the FiST. If anyone has Ultimate Racing installed and can give a review that would be sweet!

Here's the manufacturer site. The prices are in $ so less expensive than the english website. Also shipping seems to be flat rate 20$ so that's a plus.

There's also a fender brace. The only thing that concerns me is that there's no mention of the material used for all those braces. We know Pierce uses 4130 Chromoly which is stiffer than regular steel.

I was under my FiST doing an oil change the other day and looked at where the side bracing would go and the FiST have plastic covers running down the side of the car, I'm assuming these would have to be removed in order to install those braces.

my track RS is sponsored by Ultra Racing! They gave me all the bracing underneath my RS at this point. I spoke to my rep about the Fiesta ST i just bought so well see what happens. I did a few group buys for my local group a few months back so if I do run UR again for the FiST , Ill make sure to let people know here.

This is interesting as I was interested in their stuff ....but called their office and got voice mail during the day and there U.S. website has absolutely zero stuff for Fiesta or Fiesta ST . As of right now anyone that wants Ultra racing stuffmfor our cars has to buy it off ebay or a UK Fiesta ST store that carries them.

It would be good if your friend could change that but I fear the company feels there are not enopough enthuisiasts here or support for the car to warrant the business. Their U.S. prescence has always been quite limited.


We could defintiely use more bracing options here in the U.S. besides just Pierce and TB.

Mountune is another (limited) option. However, I haven't seen much feedback on their 4-pt chassis brace but I like its low profile
Oh ya forgot about that one. i was considering it for a minute but I like the triangulated ones more. I have been all over the net on the brace thing and I am most likely ordering some SuMMit braces from a retailer in the UK. Have also thought seriously about designing a 4 point brace myself.

Which is why it would be the one I went with if I ever even considered adding the weight of bracing to this car.

The way all of the others mount, and lessen the ground clearances around them, I would be tearing them off with rocks/compressions/bumps/etc. with some of the roads I drive on at times (even at factory, or higher ride heights!), and therefore possibly shearing off the heads of the bolts holding the control arms in place.

Can’t want to see what you do the FiST, if it’s anything like yours RS it will be amazing!

I might be seeing him this weekend at the UR/NorCal Chassis Works 1 year anniversary! The guy who runs Ultra Racing USA is only like 3 guys. 1 main person and 2 helpers. From what he told me , 5 years ago he took over as main rep because the previous USA pointman was tanking the USA market.... Since then he has spread his wings alot more.

Im gonna give TB Performance a go for my FiST since my RS has all UR bracing now. I loved daniel checks work and will continue to support him! Gotta keep spreading the love on my track toys!
