Carbing Strut Bar
Finally I got it.. tongue

going from RMM ~5lbs -->
APR (~4lbs +battery tie down -->
Carbing (~2lbs eek)

all of which have been great bars..

i've yet to really push the carbing bar really hard but it holds up really good thumbsup just as the others have prevented tire squeeling when turning hard and fast..only fitment issue is the brake fluid being in the way tongue and to fill it i'd have to take off the carbing bar again.. i think they also make it in steel but this one is aluminum happywink

cool, I still think Hypermotive is better looking though, but also like double the price!


My car might be slow, but at least it looks nice!

wink - Hypermotive is by far the best looking front strut bar imo however the primary function of the bar (stiffness) is not up to par being that it's one of the easist to bend. I got it for the bling factor to match my other accessories under the Hood however if one wants to maximize their suspension mods, a Carbing front strut bar is one of the sturdiest in design and material...
