GTR Strut Tower Brace.

Increase your chassis rigidity with Racing Dynamics' new GTR Strut Tower Brace. The new GTR design is 340% stiffer than the older version, and is 60% more rigid than any other brace available on the market.

The ErgalŽ web structure was optimised using Finite Element Analysis software and is so strong that it can support the weight of 2˝ 3 series without deforming.

The GTR Strut Brace has no pivot points and features mounting points for the remote reservoir of the coilover suspension System.

Available in Titanium Grey with enameled crest.
This thing sells for $840

Yes, maybe. But probably only under static compression load lengthwise, and not counting the full assembly, just the main bar. Just like the boom on a crane. Very misleading. It probably costs them less than 50 bucks to make on a water jet cutter.

Am not saying it's a bad bar... just can't justify $840 for it

no fricken joke man.

I know BMW's M strut bars are really good and also non-pivot, and cost a fraction of this.

It's a Racing Dynamics Strut brace.

Looks to be pretty well designed. None of the normal flex points, but modular design to get it to fit.

i heard those dont do much, but sway bars will make a hell of a difference, and just like dudesky says, think about it, it probably costs near nothing to make
