79-85 Rx7 Engine Torque Brace (14030)
The Racing Beat-designed Engine Torque Brace for the 1979-85 RX-7 substantially reduces or eliminates the shuddering experienced by many RX-7 owners when engaging the clutch in either first or reverse rear.
This simple brace mounts to the rear of the engine, and the retaining arm attaches to the outboard sheet metal in the engine compartment. (You must drill a small hole in the sheet metal to mount the retaining arm.) This brace reduces engine movement allowed by the soft-rubber OEM engine mounts by reducing engine movement during clutch engagement. This brace has particular benefits when upgrading to a more "performance" oriented clutch and/or pressure plate, which may make this "shuddering" even more pronounced!
