Still waiting for someone to comment if they actually feel any benefit with this......as in car doesn't twist as much during heavy turning or less maybe vibrations maybe because the chasis is more rigid details details......

The 2010+ cars are very very stiff to start with. I added the Cool Tech roll bar which ties the two shock towers together exactly like the SPP bar. I couldn't tell the difference and my lap times are the same. However I am not a race car driver! I only pretend to be one at the track... I'd like to see some data on whether it stiffens the chassis. Not opinion, just data.

One easy way to tell off the track, would be to use some sort of marking device on or next to the bar, then jack the car up on one side like you were changing the rear tire, then check for movement on your marker.

The marker could be something as simple as a piece of paper under the mounting point that slides up into the mounting point, then see if it will slide out when jacked up or not. You might even be able to measure any distance changes from the bar to the trunk/floor pan somehow...maybe even first by setting the bar on top of the mounting points before attaching and then after attaching...just thinking out loud.

I'm just guessing something like that would work to show body movement when there is force or pressure on one side of the car in a high "G" force turn....purely simulated in this scenario, and maybe even over exaggerated.

Just a thought....may not work, but just a thought.

That'd look great... As would car colors, etc... but too many choices makes for a lot of out-of-stock scenarios, and I really want to get inventory levels up so that never happens. So we've decided to let customers decide between a "finished" item (silver powdercoa) or something they can customize, with a discount they can spend having it done themselves.

First of all I would like to thank Jer for making my order right. I had ordered the Bar back before Christmas and after a couple of weeks it did not show up. I emailed Jer and let him know. After a day or two he figured out what was wrong. They were out of stock, he sent me the one from his office that was used for the photo on the website and was also going to be for his car.

I sprayed it with a SIlver Metalic paint and installed this weekend. I have also included a couple of other photo's of my car.

We already have one that's nicer than the Laguna Seca brace.
We're still tweaking it, I'll talk about it when we release it. No ETA.

Dang. Just get a FRPP or Boss 302 X brace and 'backwards engineer" it!

I've played this game before...With Harley-Davidson (and their Screamin' Eagle Race Tuner (SERT)).

They got REAL uppity about it but it's all perfectly legit and legal.
