    Competing solutions follow the OEM with bends that apparently avoid the engine and transmission. Do the SILA chassis braces straight construction come in contact with the powertrain?
    Newbe to FIAT,

    If you have oversized tires, you'll want a flat chassis such as the El Gato upgraded brace rather than these.

    Hello BayshoreBuddy,

    Thank you for reaching out to us.

    We have these Chassis Braces installed on one or our 500s at the shop without issues. That ABARTH is lowered pretty aggressively.

    If there is anything else we can help you with please don't hesitate to ask.

    Thank you again.

    Yes, the driver's side brace rubs against the power train and sounds terrible when turning right. Driving straight or turning left, no problems or weird noises but every right turn rubs and vibrates against the brace. Very little space between the brace and the drive train, I couldn't even fit a credit card in the gap.

    I pulled it off this morning and replaced it with the stock brace. No more noises and there is a wear mark on the brace and on the driver train where they were rubbing together.IMG_20200730_082658375.jpg
