Beatrush Rear PPF Brace

[7/26/2007] Reviewed by: Brett - brett@yahoo.com

Applicable to: '90 - '97 1.8 liter

Ties the rear of the PPF to the chassis.

Very easy to install, took less than 5 minutes with a service ramp and easily reversible. Big difference in drivetrain feel during turns. It's interesting to know how much the rear differential and drivetrain moved before installing the brace and the feel when it is tied in to the chassis after the install.

Most people do not know what they are talking about in the previous posts. This brace does not increase any chassis stiffening whatsoever, its purpose is to strictly tie in the drivetrain to the chassis to prevent excessive movement during turns. It does not tighten the rear end and therefore should not change the geometry of the car.

Beatrush Rear Subframe Brace

Applicable to: '90 - '97 '99 + 1.6 liter 1.8 liter

Triangular rear subframe brace, gold color.

This brace connects the rear end of the power plant frame, which surrounds the driveshaft, to the existing rear subframe brace. If your Miata doesn't already have a rear brace then I would imagine that you'd have to get one since the Beatrush brace is angled to accommodate a stock rear brace. The Beatrush brace is also flattened throughout so that ground clearance is not an issue. What I immediately noticed about the effect it had on my car was the braces' ability to prevent foreward-aft movements of the drivetrain as well as the bobbing/floating of the shift knob when the car hits a dip in the road. Shifter feel also improved as now I can feel a solid "snick" when the tranny gets into a gear. There seems to be a faint vibration coming from the rear of the car around 3000 rpm now but there is no resulting noise and after a while it become oblivious. A great add-on!

I'd recommend this brace for anyone who wants to get a more sporty feel to their Miata.

Beatrush Rear Subframe Brace

Beatrush Rear Subframe Brace from Metro motorsports. A triangle shaped brace that mounts on the rear subframe, connects to the stock rear brace and a bolt on the end of the center frame. Comes with a sticker and painted in a nice gold colour.

I received the brace from Metro 2 days after I placed the order, talk about fast shipping. DHL is the best. Anyways, I am very satified with the brace, it mounts on the stock rear brace. I thought I have to take it off, but actually you put it under the stock one so it actually use in conjunction the stock brace as well, which is very nice. No holes to be drilled, use existing holes, comes with a new set of bolts too. Very good product, the rattling of my soft top before was gone. The rear feels VERY solid, when you turn the car, the rear is planted to the ground. The car feels more responsive and the brace looks very good when you look under your car from the back. The gold brace really stands out.^^ Great Product!

Would buy Beatrush's front subframe brace too. The solid feeling on the rear is making the front feel soft, ha ha.^^

Beat Rush front and rear, yes I said rear, shock tower braces, from Japan.

The Beat Rush shock tower braces are of the finest quality aluminum, nice welds, perfect overall finish, and great fit. With both of the bars, the Miatas chassis is so much more stiff, handling is increase, and turn-in is awesome.

Best shock tower bars on the market for the Miata, get yours from the only U.S. distributor R-Speed 1-888-551-0025.
