    Rear trunk brace

    So I finally have time to post this for everyone. I have the Evilla Motorsports rear trunk brace. This is only offered for the Forte5. Reason is where it ties into the rear child seat brackets on the 5 compared to the Koup. From what Eli has told me this is the closest point to the top hats on the rear shocks and keeps the towers from moving.

    I have noticed with this bar the rear feels less sloopy and feels way more tight in the rear. It does help the car corner better allowing me to get on throttle a bit sooner. Now I also have the rear torsion bar and with this added with the rear brace the rear tracks right where you want it. I have noticed increased stability while on the freeways and the rear doesn't move around for every little bump.

    All I can say is to get these bars ASAP if you want to corner harder and want the car to drive better and respond to your steering input better.




    The bar will be painted just trying to figure out a color

    It's a very clean install and you never see it. So you still keep your trunk space

    Eli has a koup hey? Is there plans for a trunk brace for the koup or is the rear a little more stiffer on the koup with the rear deck vs having everything open on the Forte5. It is a nice install though.

    Yes he has a Koup. i am not sure if he plans on anything for the trunk on the Koup. If I remember right it's because of the mounting points for the child brackets in the Koup. I would think that the Koup somehow could get a brace. I haven't seen the trunk of one yet though

    Hey Rick,
    We are working on something nice for the Koup as well. It was to our surprise as well that the wagon was the only one to have those bolt locations. The rear deck does help the body which is may be why Kia moved the bolts positions to the top instead of the bottom.

    i havent looked as i have a vest and work stuff in my trunk, but if there are any bolt holes in the floor, maybe they can be tied to the rear deck, like an X bar or something. it'll destroy the fold down seat capability, but who cares

    A X bar would be awesome in the trunk of the Koup!
