Ultra Racing Stabilizer Bar for 2022 Honda City (GN2 & GN3)
Honda Malaysia is officially launching the 2020 Honda City GN2 with 4 variants available – the S, E, V and GN3 RS.
The first three variants are powered by 1.5-liter naturally-aspirated i-VTEC engine, while RS version is powered by 1.5-liter i-MMD hybrid Atkinson-cycle DOHC i-VTEC engine. Although the engine is different, but the chassis setup shares the same feature of rear suspension – the torsion beam suspension.
How many bars available for Honda City (GN2 &GN3)?
In Ultra Racing, the bars that are available for the Honda City GN2 & GN3 RS are Front Strut Bar, Rear Anti Roll Bar, Front Anti Roll Bar, Front Lower Bar, Mid Lower Bar and Rear Lower Bar.
The functionality of each of the bars after installed on your Honda City (GN2) are explained below.
STAGE 1 (Front Strut Bar & Rear Anti Roll Bar)
Stage 1 which includes Front Strut Bar and Rear Anti Roll Bar, is the primary set to enhance the performance of your car.
Front Strut Bar / Front Tower Bar
The Honda City GN2 & GN3 RS doesn’t come with the OEM front strut bar from the car manufacturer. Ultra Racing has developed a 2 points front strut bar, located at the top of the absorber (left and right) in order not to affect the normal procedure of service and maintenance.
The car chassis will affect the left and right strut tower and suppress changes in body distortion that occur during running. Furthermore, continuous stress will cause distortion little by little. As known by majority, tire friction, suspension forces, defects from rain water and old car with age will affect a car’s life span. Aftermarket suspension and modifications will also increase the burden of the car chassis.
One of the methods to deal with such a situation is to install a front strut bar/front tower bar, by connecting the left and right strut towers to increase rigidity. Apart from being easy to install, it is the most effective reinforcement part that demonstrates high performance
Rear Anti Roll Bar / Rear Sway Bar
The OEM rear suspension setups of Honda City GN2 & GN3 RS come with torsion beam system without stabilizer bar. Ultra Racing has decided to develop a solid 16mm & 19mm OD (outside diameter) rear anti roll bar, as it significantly improves the handling performance and maintains the comfortability of the car. For a keen driver, you may choose the rear anti roll bar in 16mm setup for your daily driving. If you’re a driver who enjoys the fun when cornering, a 19mm setup of rear anti roll bar is the choice you need the most.
STAGE 2 (Lower Arm Bar)
Stage 2, comprising Front Lower Bar, Mid Lower Bar and Rear Lower Bar for Honda City GN2 & GN3 RS are able to reduce the car chassis flex and strengthen the main chassis platform. It is highly recommended for heavy load vehicles such as SUV or MPV as it helps to enhance the stiffness and handling during higher speed and cornering.
