Torque Steer and wheel hop are two massive problems for the Ford Focus ST. Both wheel hop and torque steer are caused in part by chassis deflection in the LCA pickup points as well as deflection of the LCA bushing. This deflection causes small but critical changes in alignment, specifically toe, while getting on the throttle hard. The Torque Gusset Traction Bar braces these critical junctions and helps eliminate wheel hop and torque steer by preventing changes in alignment under hard acceleration or launches.

-Fits 2013-2018 Ford Focus ST
-Heavy duty CNC billet end cups
-Clears aftermarket charge pipes and motor mounts
-High gloss double black powdercoat finish
-Hand MIG and TIG welded Construction
-Made in the USA

-This brace is a replacement for the Traction Bar. You cannot run both braces at the same time. If you are looking for the maximum performance, look at the torque gusset traction bar. It outperforms every single brace on the market and is lightyears ahead of any two point brace out there.
Great quality build with a nice finish. Install is very straight forward. This product paired with my RMM has gotten rid of all my wheel hop and has helped a lot with torque steer. It also helps with body roll when cornering. Highly recommend, this is a great product for the money.
Paired with the TB rmm I have absolutely no more wheel hop worth every penny.
Just got it for Christmas from my girlfriend will have updates upon install.
Install was not too hard for anyone that has some mechanical know how. If you don’t have an impact gun and/or lift I recommend using both ramps and a jack. You can get enough leverage to break the front bolts loose and then torque down while the wheels are loaded. Overall driving experience is the car so much more planted under acceleration.
Easy install. Car feels much more planted. 1st gear burn out with no wheel hop!
