Focus ST TB Performance Brake Master Cylinder Brace
The oem brake master cylinder bolts directly to the firewall. being an unsupported piece oof sheet metal and given the large amount of force exerted by the brake system, the master cylinder will actually move and flex under hard braking. While this does not hurt stopping distance, it does cause unpredictable and poor pedal feel.
This brace helps reinforce and redistribute the load on the master cylinder which increases pedal feel, makes the braking system more consistent, as well as giving the driver more confidence. This brace went through several generations and prototypes to arrive at the unit you see. Extensive design in Solidworks as well as testing on closed roads and real world mileage allowed me to produce a product that I am extremely proud of.
Stock without brace
This video shows how the vehicle stops under hard braking WITHOUT the brace. Listen to how hard the driver is fighting for traction from the beginning.
With the TB Performance Products Brake Master Cylinder Brace
This video shows how the vehicle stops under the same hard braking WITH the brace. Listen to how the driver is able to control the traction threshold of the tires easier and modulate the brakes much more effectively. This video was shot within 15 min of the first video so all conditions were the same.
- Billet 6061 Aluminum
- Hand tig welded
- Light weight
- Increased pedal feel
- More consistent braking and pedal modulation
- Works best with a TB Performance Products Strut Bar. If you are using the oem strut tower brace, you will need to remove the bar to make this work. I highly suggest running my strut bar in combination with this brace.
