So, are you saying that STB's are a waste of time on the Mustang then? Or just this particular design?cosmoracer said:If the outside strut tower is going to flex inward, why do people think that the inside strut tower is going to stop it? See the point here? if one side is flexing, the other one will too. This is beside that fact that the strut tower brace itself will flex before it can actually push on the inside tower. And, since the camber curve is so horrendous on Mustangs, wouldn't the strut tower flexing in perhaps aid in the camber loss?
I think the pinch weld is strong enough. I agree about the way the Maier STB attaches between the CC Plates, and Strut tower.Skankin said:I considered doing a hybrid thing as well... but I'm not sure if those vertical connections would do much, and the firewall ain't that strong either...
I like the tower mounts on the old Maier racing brace, and the newer Kenny Brown braces as well... they sandwich a plate between the tower & the cc plate... that's how I did mine.
I just used one bar, between the towers.... like all the ricers do.
There was a thread about this a few weeks ago- http://www.corral.net/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=320003427Windsorman said:I think the pinch weld is strong enough. I agree about the way the Maier STB attaches between the CC Plates, and Strut tower.
BTW, I just happened to run across this, and forgot I had posted it, lol.
