Under Tower Indurators for MINI Cooper R53 (2002-2006)

Too Much G Force

Whether you are competing at an autocross or driving on a Sunday afternoon your MINI is at risk. Even if you already have some STD's, you may want to double up. Because around every corner, in the very depths of every pothole, and the pinnacle of every bump, G forces lie in wait. The occasional G may seem harmless by itself, but at times there may be several lurking in one rut and once they have done their damage to the sheet metal atop your tightly sprung strut towers, it will be difficult to resume normal activity.

Mushrooming

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but you may not be able to detect the mushroomed strut towers if you looked at a thousand photos. Less than 3/8" of tower deformation can be extremely detrimental to your MINI's alignment. This has been a common issue that MINI owners have had to face. It is a compromise in the design of the vehicle, where the tight springs allow for the griptastic handling that we love on the twisties, but are the main reason that our MINI's have a unique disposition for sheet metal deformation.

Double Up

Craven Speed UTIs are an alternative and slightly more affordable version of our Strut Tower Defenders. They install under the strut tower, and provide the same protection as the STD's. It is not necessary to install both. Either option will protect your towers from mushrooming.

UTIs (Under Tower Indurators)

Installation is a little more difficult than the STD, using the included instructions, it will take about 30 minutes to ensure that you do not have to go through a lengthy and expensive alignment repair. You will need to lift the car, bolting the strut unbolt the struts, and maneuver the UTIs into place before bolting the strut back in place.

Fitment

Craven Speed UTIs are only available for first generation, 2002-2006 (R53) MINI. The pair comes plated in a gold nickel finish. The finish will have some scratches from the manufacturing process, but do not fear, the UTI is barely visible once it is installed.
