these things are incredible! went down friday and had them put on by mike. took the car out for a drive after the install and noticed a difference right away. i had just gotten my 50 trim on, and even with cold/all season tires, no trouble in the third gear pull. soon after pulled up nex to a mustang gt, light turned green, took off and pulled bus length's on this dude. even from a dig. i was very impressed after this, but even more on the ride home. the front of the car feels way more stable then it did as i had removed my crash bar for the ic. also, i'm lowered with just springs, car rode terrible, felt every bump, so bad the interior would rattle hitting some bumps. drove home and the bumps now feel like i'm riding in a car with thousands into the suspension. cant wait to go to the track and see what i put down. this is by far my favorite mod on the car so far. even with a 50 trim. thanks guys!

oh and mike you might wanna check your drawers after that one...:wah?!: :thumbsup: :rofl:

bwoody is the best

I travelled down to bwoody to have them put on my h-brace/traction bars/tranny mount, and all I can say is :clap: . Gregg and Mike are the best! Mike spent a lot of time to get everything right. The on center feel is great, and the whole front end seems so much tighter. I even have more feel in the steering wheel during curves. You can't go wrong with these guys. :thumbsup:
The tranny mount really didn't add vibration, it just feels and sounds meaner. :eveilgrin

i'll make this short,

after having the h-brace and traction bars sit in my garage for a month due to.. not having free time to install them.. i got them on today. took them for a nice drive on some nearby twisties and got do to a couple hard launches. the reviews already speak for themselves and they're all right. NO wheel hop (just burnt rubber :eveilgrin ), quicker steering wheel response, handling on my acr is now 10x better.

thanks for the great product bwoody!

I've had them for a while, and love them, my only complaint is not with the bars, but with the fact that my CTI big turbo charge pipe and the traction bars both want to be in the same place. So my hotside pipe is being pushed up by the bars since the CTI charge pipe hangs lower than the factory unit. Eventually will try and get the charge pipe bent up a bit more to allow them to coexist in harmony. Wonderful work by Bwoody though :thumbsup:.

Bwoody only sells traction bars if you buy the h brace with them. (IIRC)

Takes pressure off the radiator support so it doesn't bend.

I just installed the H-brace & traction bars on my 04' today (an early Fathers Day gift to myself). Except for the passenger side traction bar hitting my lower hard pipe, I am very pleased with zero wheel hop. The overall handling has improved quite a bit. I love these things! I can't believe I didn't buy them sooner. Time to get a set for my 05'.:thumbsup:

My hardpipe is already up as far as it will go. It's up against the motor mount bracket and a/c compressor. I'm not too worried about it. I rarely drive the car. I put 11.6 miles on it since Thanksgiving Day 2006. Including the 3 mile test drive for the brace and bars yesterday. I wonder which part will give first, the pipe, traction bar, motor mount bracket or the a/c compressor? I haven't re-checked anything since the test drive. I will get under there and see if any damage occured and tighten anything that may need to be re-torqued. :thumbsup:

Just wanted to chime in after i installed my hbrace upgrade today.... the car pulls really hard in second now from a roll... no spinning till the very top of second gear... and this is on street tires..... from a dig still have spinning in first but not as bad but left two beautiful straight tire tracks... cant wait to put drag radials on and see what happens on the street as well as my slicks at the track...

no rubbing or popping like my standard t bars did very good part... made the front end alot more responsive...

thanks guys
