Viking Design Works D216 adjustable battery brace

See: Viking Design Works

After months of testing, Viking Design Works have introduced an adjustable lateral battery brace for the HB Racing D216. The battery brace assembly has two parts: and upper and lower plate. Both plates interlock using a “backbone” to precisely guide the plates for on the fly battery position adjustment. It moves forwards and backwards utilizing the stock carbon brace with new hardware included in the kit. The new brace is considerably wider which gives a more precise fit on the battery. This also creates more surface area by design, thus siffening the chassis of the car immensely.
