Custom R33 Front Crash Bar

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I'm looking to build a custom R33 front crash bar for my R33 Gts25t. My plan is to build something that fits nicely behind my front bumper that will take the impact if i hit anything hard drifting, and hopefully save my rad/fmic. I'm looking for some inspiration here and pictures or drawings of any setups that you guys might have. Tips and tricks are also welcome!

am planning on the same thing, just haven't got round to it yet

'C'(section ?) type metal bar from a steel place, cut the side top ( not middle) and bottom part if you need bends and reweld after you've bashed it to the angle needed.

good luck your efforts

Guys, something to consider...

If you strengthen the front reo, and make it like a huge bull bar, if you do hit something, you're going to bend what it's attached to instead. And that would be the chassis rails.

The reo bar, radiator/FMIC are basically "sacrificial" in terms of mild accidents. You would much rather bend and break these pieces, then bend the chassis rails...

this doesn't suit street too well but for the track a tap here and there = messy front end

yes any more force will transfer the shock to the weaker metal
