superbrace performance improvement

Post by Swagonmaster » Thu Nov 30, 2017 3:19 pm



After reading a post about the blackwing front end brace and the fact that a lot of it's improved performance over the superbrace was due to the tapered head screws it comes with I though that I would try a mod to my superbrace. I found some 6mm flat washers that were the same OD as the superbrace bolt recess (16mm) and tapped some 7mm threads into the 6mm ID and then screwed the bolts into my newly made position maintaining washers. It seems to have made a noticeable improvement in the front end feel in the turns and I didn't have to buy another brace.
If you don't have a nice bolt box of course your mileage may vary.
