The new Dynotech Engineering (DTE) C5 Corvette Differential Strut Brace significantly increases the strength of the differential and transmission assembly for high performance use. This product was designed, engineered and tested by DTE, in an effort to solve the problem of differential case fracture, transmission case breakage and driveline deflection during hard acceleration on the street, road course or drag strip.
The DTE Differential Strut Brace is designed to be a true bolt-on drivetrain upgrade for the 1997-2004 C5 and Z06 Corvette with manual or automatic transmission, and does not require modification to the vehicle of any kind to install. Each kit comes complete painted red for corrosion resistance and includes all the necessary brackets, fasteners, hardware and detailed photo enhanced instructions required for a hassle free installation. The entire kit is easily installed or removed while the driveline is in the car and is designed to be a true, bolt-on installation kit that can be installed in two hours or less using regular, commonly found hand tools. Finally, there is no driveline vibration/noise resonated into the passenger compartment/cabin and interior sound levels are unaffected from O.E.M.
Only the strongest materials and components are used in its manufacture and the principle of adding strength with out adding a lot of unnecessary weight was the engineering goal that was successfully achieved. We've identified the three most common causes for driveline failure and engineered this product to address and correct those negative driveline issues in a lightweight, compact package. The entire kit weighs only 26 lbs. and is engineered to spread the drivetrain stress loading over a greater area and to the strongest components in the Corvette driveline. Superior strength in this product by design was successfully achieved with out adding unnecessary weight to the vehicle.
Each transmission and differential brace/girdle is manufactured using precision-cut, 3/8" thick, 1018 cold-rolled steel for durability and an exact fit. The adjustable strut rods are manufactured using T-304 stainless steel and are 9/16" in diameter for strength, while still being lightweight. We also utilize HD, steel-ball Heim joints at both ends for ease of assembly and strut rod durability. All threaded mounting holes are tapped with a fine thread count to increase thread engagement and surface area for strength. As a final touch, all brackets are engraved with the DTE logo.
