Circuit Motorsports *NEW Billet Pitch-Stop* & Clutch Master Cylinder Brace Combo Deal

We are going to do something a little different here and offer not only a Group Buy for our BRAND NEW Billet Pitch-Stop Braces, but we are also going to offer these in conjunction with our very popular Clutch Master Cylinder Braces together as an option!!

First off, and introduction to the Pitch-Stop, why it's important, and why you'll want ours.

What Does the Pitch-Stop Do?
The pitch-stop brace is a hard mount between the upper transmission case and the firewall on your Subaru, located under your top-mount intercooler or air-box. This brace is designed to limit the movement of the drive-train fore and aft as you accelerate, shift, and decelerate. This is very important because the low-mounted engine mounts and one transmission mount leave a high moment of inertia for the drive-train. The pitch stop sits above the drive-train and is the sole mounting point in that area to the chassis.



Why Does the Factory Pitch Stop Suck?
Subaru designed the factory pitch stop like the rest of the OEM bushings in the car, to be on the soft-side and absorb noise, vibration, and harshness for the folks that don’t want to “feel the car”. The OEM pitch stop is made of thin plastic and has soft rubber bushings. This allows for quite a bit of flex and give, we have even seen them break and snap in half. You feel this inside the car as drive-train slop and unnecessary movement. When you accelerate, decelerate, or shift quickly at high RPM’s the drive-train moves independently of the chassis. Some of that power is actually wasted in moving and twisting the drive line through these soft bushings and mounts. No bueno.




Why Does Our Pitch-Stop Rock?
We designed our pitch stop to not “suck” by using a solid block of Billet T6-6061 Aluminum and machining it into a beautiful shape to fit perfectly In the OEM location. Custom fit 85a durometer bushings which provide a level of protection against NVH but are much less susceptible to the movement your Subaru drive-train. Basically, our solid billet pitch stop is not going to flex when the boost hits. You’ll get crisper shifts, more direct acceleration, a more solid drive-train feel, and less wasted energy to the ground. This is hands-down one of the best bang-for-the-buck drivetrain mods you can do to your Subaru.

We also wanted to make sure that this part lasts the life of the vehicle. We didn’t just want to paint or powder-coat our braces, so we used a mil-spec type-3 hard anodize to treat the brace, this prevents corrosion and also has the added benefit of hardening the surface as well. The anodizing provides a nice eye-catching colorful matte finish to the pitch stop.

Setting our brace apart was important, so we designed a set of mounting holes in the center of the brace. This will allow for future upgrades provided by Circuit Motorsports, or for some ingenuity on your own. These holes can be used for brackets, air-oil separators mounts or hoses, or can be used to zip-tie other fuel-lines or breather-hose. Instead of just a solid brace, you have those extra options, or just enjoy an aesthetically pleasing brace overall! Keep in mind that these braces are proudly designed, manufactured and distributed exclusively in the U.S.A.!





Custom bushings were designed and cast just for this application! We use a high quality Shore A Polyurethane high durometer bushing set for the front and rear as well as matching Gold Zinc plated steel sleeves to keep the bushing from being worn out prematurely by the mounting hardware.




These pitch-stops will fit just about any Subaru! How's that for great resale value?!

But....wait....you guys mentioned a combo deal? YES!

Yup, for those of you who have a 2008-2014 Impreza, WRX, or STI you may have read or heard about the crappy stock clutch welds that fail and give you all sorts of problems including sloppy clutch feel, inconsistent clutch engagement, complete pedal failure and the inability to drive the car. Yeah, it can get that bad.

Well we designed a Clutch Master Cylinder Brace (CMCB) that can help to prevent those welds from breaking, get rid of the pedal slop and firewall flex, and take away some of those annoying pops and creaks. Check out all of the info here in our previous CMCB group-buy that was a huge hit: >>>>>> Circuit Motorsports Billet Clutch Master Cylinder Brace - 2008-2014 WRX & STI - NASIOC




The CMCB requires the removal of one of the Pitch-stop bolts, so if you are going to install one or the other, it is the perfect time to upgrade and do both! For this reason we are going to offer the option of buying one of our CMCB at a discounted Group buy price when you buy a Pitch-stop.

Normal CMCB price is $179.99 - For this Group Buy only, with the purchase of a Pitch-Stop, we will add the CMCB for the sweet deal of only $159.99! That's a $20 savings, and we will add the CMCB even if we only reach the Tier 1 price bracket for the Pitch-stops!

Keep in mind, the Pitch-stops fit just about any Subaru, but the CMCB fits ONLY the 2008-2014 Impreza, WRx, or STI.


Let's get this Group buy going!

Pitch Stop mount and other "hard" mounts for the engine and transmission are some of the best mods you can do for your car, period -- you feel the car, and things just work better. But yes, the car is "louder" ....

Yup, really improves everything about the feel of the car, gives you a better idea of what's "going-on" with the chassis!

Added! We don't have an expressed warranty but we stand behind our work, if you had any issues with it we'd take care of ya :)

Yup, here is a red one a customer of ours installed and grabbed a pic, it shows where it sits under the Clutch Master Cylinder and then mounts to the Pitch-stop rear bolt location.

Circuit Motorsports *NEW Billet Pitch-Stop* & Clutch Master Cylinder Brace Co...

Thanks for the pic. Great bit of kit, especially since we are starting to see some structural fails of the firewall due to heavy clutches.

Shame that it won't suit RHD.

Yup, in our testing this pretty works well to shore up the firewall area. Right now we just have the LHD version though haha.
