Racetech Balance Bar/Cable

Racetech has produced a range of balance bars and cables over the years which have proven popular with the majority of chassis builders. Used throughout the single seater and sports car sectors of the industry there is sure to be a product suitable for your needs.

Balance Bar Assembly

Racetech adjustable brake balance bar assemblies are available with alloy or steel clevis and supplied with cross tube ready to weld into the pedal to suit 3” and 2.5” master cylinder centres. High quality 55 ton steel is used for the balance bar. Many manufacturers have taken advantage of this package as the cost is less than manufacturing their own assembly!

The majority of Formula Student teams opt for a 2.5" size centre as space is limited on a Formula Student car, however some will have room for the 3" option. The centre piece is 1" diameter regardless of which length you have. The clevis' also have a similar split with most opting for the alloy option, however some do prefer the strength of the steel clevis.
