hey anton. its just another tuning option for the car. by using this new CF brace on the side of the car. you further minimize flex. by doing so, the theory is that you gain more corner exit speed. since the drivetrain is stiffened up also.

i do believe this is the explanation no?

but doesnt it utilmatly stiffen the car? if so then its true evidence my old g4 when the car was new and stiff it handled better than it did as it broke in. another way to look at it is the stiffer your chassis the better the car will turn. the more flex the car has the more all around traction it has.

i dont think stiffening the car/chassis is good for me.. because our track is little bumpy and has low traction.

stiffening the car is good on a fast and a track with a lot of traction

The "core" intention here is that it reduces flex in your drivetrain.

like i said, its a tuning option, but was designed and specifically used for removing flex in the drivetrain while maintaining the chassis stiffness..

Be nice if the rest of us could buy one. I checked the-border, a shop in the Netherlands, looks like they don't have it as of Aug 27.

Anywhere else to get it?
