Would that be 4 braces for F/R or 2 just for front? Also those bodies on your site are sweet, would they fit the Cobra GT?

Front and rear, complete set with hardware. Unfortunately all of those bodies are for long chassis

You need to come up with some sort of body shrinker. So they fit the K car igt2.

They fit the GT2 cars perfect, Cobra is short chassis. That pic of the GTR is on an IGT2.

If you are not running the braces now take a straight edge and look how bent your arms are!! This is because the arms are made for offroad. Soft arms create better grip when traction is low but as traction goes up they deflect more and the braces do their job. These new braces allow for arm flex but keep the arms straight at the same time so for low to med grip they are optimal!



For those of you that want to run the new Serpent body (maclaren) the stock rear body mount sits too far back and right under the wing post. So we designed a body mount extender that puts the post in front of the shocks.



Lastly, the 2 stage pistons have been redesigned specifically for on road now. The material has a higher percentage of Teflon in it so they are super smooth and the rebound and vent holes are now larger which give them even quicker rebound and quicker reaction. On the track this translates to a car that will transition laterally and longitudinally quicker. the last version were 8 holes 1.3 compression 1.4 rebound, the new ones are 4 holes 1.5 compression and 1.8 rebound. Andy Lui can chime in on how they worked for him!
Pistons are available now the braces and mounts will be ready next week! thanks guys
This weekend we had our first Southwest Series Race here in Porter, Tx.. I ran Marcus's new RC Shox arm braces on my Cobra Gt and I will be the first to say that there're awesome.. Also ran the conversion kit for the Mclaren body and I also approve of it as well.. Marcus puts in a lot of time testing his products before he announces them so buy with confidence..

Big Congrats to my friend Jose M. who got a 6th place finish on his very 1st GT race at the Texas SWCS #1. He'll only get better from here. This is his first Serpent Cobra GT.

Robert since your car is stock you'll need to get the 0' degree front hubs and the 10' degree caster blocks. That will help you with your problem.
