Actually, I retract my post. There was a long thread about strut brace, but the mods recently removed it because the creator came on to sell it, but since he's not a sponsor, violated the TOU. My bad

Manufacturer: MB Arts. Made of 41XX high-strength low-alloy steels, with alloying elements include chromium and molybdenum also known as chromoly. This is one of the better strut designs out there, much better than crap hinged or multipiece...this brace was designed for function. I've got one that's getting CF wrapped.

Here are some pics of the brace in before finish.





It's for sale on Ebay, or through Sonic Motorsports which are the only company I know of that's carrying it. Comes in the unifinished raw you see in the pics or satin black.

Ooops. I didn't realize it had been removed.

AZN, is it as simple to install as it looks? Are those the original tower bolts in your pics? I'm interested, but doubt I can convince my wife it's worth the money...

Comes with bolts. And yes, it's as easy to install as it looks. 3 bolts on both sides, put on, screw back in. Simple.

It's race quality material. Noticeable difference will depend on your driving and personal sensitivity. For everyday conservative driving to work, probably not much, but if you take it on twisties like I do or take the occasional hard corners, yeah.

On your own opinion by making the holes 1 drill size up will fix the problem?

My CF fab 1 guy is ridiculously slow on the wrapping this unfortunately cause my other CF fab 2 guy is leaving the business and running off to join the military, dumping all his work on my CF fab 1 guy. He's swamped, but I've been promised it back next week.

I have addressed the fitment issue. I originally had smaller holes which worked well on 8 out of 10 204's, so I made the holes larger which worked well until bigigg's ride. I now have the holes a little bigger and should not have anymore fitment problems.

Finally got some progress pics. Should be shipped back to me end of this week. Shape of the brace made the wrapping extremely difficult.

Hardly. Sponsorship and hook-up pricing ftw.

I'm going to need to see a better pic. From that pic I like the raw look better (and I love CF).

Here are some quick pics I took. These were taken before I could find an allen wrench to tighten the bolts all the way down so excuse that part. Also I didn't have the proper MB Arts logo on yet, just half the logo quickly printed out temporarily.
