    I have had a TB traction bar for about 4 years now. It hasn't broken yet. You can feel difference. If the car didn't have beefy motor mounts I think the transmission would hit the bar... a lot. There is around 3mm of clearance on mine. The welds aren't the prettiest I've seen, but like I said, it works and it hasn't broken yet. I also have their trunk brace.

    FYI: unable to see any products on your website.

    I have the CS bar and for me, that added bit of bracing made a big difference in reducing torque steer when I installed it. I was only rmm as far as upgraded mounts, and still on k04 at the time, so differing setups might see varying results.

    Damn thats crazy man! I was just thinking about that group buy I did back in 2014(I am assuming that was where you ordered)...That GB was what gave me the chance to buy some new tools and really develop my skills. That was the year TB really grew into itself. Without your order this whole dream never would have gotten to where it is. I really appreciate your purchase and owe a lot to those of you who bought.

    I actually have done about 3 revisions to the brace since that GB. Welds are much different, new process to weld as well as more clearance! Its basically a totally new brace :D I think youll enjoy the progression. Again, your order helped give me the chance to push on and keep improving! Thanks man!

    Here are some samples of the work ive done in the past few weeks.

    The powdercoat mutes the welds a bit so I wanted to show a before coat and after coat shot. Underneath the coating is some actual weld work!

    And the CS bar uses a slip fit design like I used to build back in 2012-2014...The solid cup design that I went to in 2015 has a dramatic improvement over a slip design as there is a ton of deflection that occurs at the mounting point. Thats why I use .120 wall tubing and 1/8" base material.

    I don't always read the instructions, but when I do it's on MSO Group Buys.

    Edit: Aww hell, I tried to make that a meme, but I fail at this forum apparently.

    Screw that, copying that long-ass list is a waste of space. Let the OP maintain the list in the OP.

    It's the engineering mindset: the glass is twice as large as it needs to be. To all those arguing about half empty and half full, come on guys, the answer is obvious. Though I suppose another valid answer is the glass is half empty because all the meth evaporated.
