I would be interested in the rear X-Brace if the discount is decent (like 15%). I subscribed and will add my name to the list when you get an idea on pricing.

I'd be in for just a rear bar. That front isn't worth it if it doesn't brace against that firewall

Slotted holes where the front brace bolts to the shock towers seem like they’re limit how effective it is and cause rubbing in an area I wouldn’t want rubbing.

Same on the rear-- hard to see what that is actually going to be accomplishing with slots on the part that attaches to the towers.

Feels like these designs won't do much...

Default Re: Feeler: Group Buy Gosling Racing & Independent Designs Front and Rear Brace

just an observation on the front and rear braces.
the front is held together by bolted joints, which are required to be torqued correctly to limit joint movement. unless the joint is sufficiently stiff, this effectively reduces the overall stiffness of the bar.
the rear bar has too many slotted holes on the shock tower plates. id want to see the bolt sizing calcs to ensure that the joint is designed to deal with the loads expected.

with rear bars especially, unless its a solid piece, they look good and tough; but how much load are they really taking up, over and above what the floor is taking by itself?

Yeah, I've always thought that hinged strut bars are inferior to a solid piece like the OEM bar, so what does that $500 really get you?

The rear bar looks good, but the strut tower mount pieces don't even fit as well as the ones on the Mason brace. They are angled instead of rounded. I don't know if that affects anything.

Prices are up and looks like we’ll need atleast 10 participants. Participants wouldn’t need to order a front and rear brace but total of 10 participants to make it worth doing
