...because I could find plenty of other much more worthy things to spend 75 dollars on....
...next time you could give me the money and save yourself from tacking on that bit of more weight with no benefits... :smile:

Strut bar has no benefits? Anything that reduces body flex has benefits, but suffers from its cons too.

If you're a daily driver, and don't track it, it's useless however.

your car flex that much? drive my old camaro and then you'll think your civic is solid concrete.

we aren't driving around wet noodles everybody, structural rigidity and stiffness isn't exactly an issue we have anymore...right along with so many other production cars nowadays as well.
- there have been multiple articles on how chassis stiffeners (even multiples used in concert with one another) don't hardly net any sort of performance benefit, and we're talking track times here.

will your car "feel" more rigid or stiffer? possibly.
will that actually help you with anything at all? no.

Oh ok... Ya what's your paypal... I was just about to send some money for potentially worthless products. Glad your being a great guy man, whew... I will send you the money instead so it's put to good use instead of Me buying worthess things for My car.

I got it for $75... Im sure I could sell this and turn a profit seeing as how a new one is almost $300.

see now, turning it around for a profit is probably the best thing you could do with that thing....if you had mentioned that as a possible future for it, i wouldn't have said anything. :smile:

...of course, is that all-together ethical? perhaps not, but let's not the raise the bar too high today...
