Pressing the Subaru/Scion brakes leaves a lot to be desired, especially when every inch counts in a race or when you are depending on them to save your life! The firewall flex is the source of this performance flaw in Subaru's and Scions that we came to solve. The GrimmSpeed™ Master Cylinder Brace takes a beating and comes back for more! Crafted from hardcore CNC laser cut 12L14 with multi-point welded fabrication. Powdercoated black, this brace will outlive your car and win you some style points to boot. Most importantly this brace kit will kill your wimpy pedal feel and give you the immediate and tight response that your performance car deserves and needs when you hit the track or rally. This brace will give you the confidence similar to that of SS braided brake lines with precision stopping. Not to mention street driving just got a whole lot more fun!

I was surprised at how effective this mod was. As you brake progressively deeper/harder there is a firmness and feedback in the pedal that was never there before. I also agree with the other reviewer, that even the initial "bite" of the brakes seems crisper. Really excellent.
This is now the second product I've purchased from GrimmSpeed and have once again been totally impressed with the quality of the manufacturing. Next up for me is their CAI for the FRS...I'm sure I'll be totally happy with that next mod from them as well.
Thank you GrimmSpeed. Keep up the awesome work.

Bought this a couple weeks back. Install was fairly simple, although I was sent the wrong size bolts, it still installed just fine. It is a little bit of a PITA to line up correctly if you don't have small hands. Initial test drive went good. Brake pedal is a good bit firmer and feels nicer. Overall a pretty solid product. Would reccomend.

another great piece by the folks at Grimmspeed. The FRS stock brakes are pretty good by comparison, and I've had little fade on track days with just a pad swap. The master cylinder brace just firms up the pedal, especially through the lower half of the range. Feels like grabs a little quicker too. Tons of confidence going into hard braking zones now, even at the end of a session. Good price and easy install for a clear increase in brake performance. no brainer

This is a pretty neat bit of kit! It's really well made, and it makes a pretty noticeable difference especially under heavy braking. It really firms up the brake pedal in the "back half" of travel.
My one caveat: Mine actually came with the wrong nut in the kit. It only cost 60 cents for a replacement at the local hardware store, though. And I emailed the guys and they said they would make sure future kits were good.
