Just curious, but do you guys know if the fender braces rc autoworks sells do anything?

I have a set, they're awesome. Much more effective than a strut brace. Last I heard though, he's not making them anymore.

ive heard great things about them, from stiffening up the front end to reducing wheel hop. theres a couple places that still sell them, panducky.com, and i think passwordjdm.com. also ive seen some floating around on ebay for cheaper. i just made some for my car, but its just really thick flat stock welded to the unibody :D il get some pics up later when i figure out how to use this site, this is my first post.

Exactly how I plan to do them on y rex.

Welding in the braces should prove to be much more effective than bolt on ones.

I just noticed a significant amount of body flex getting out of the driveway the other day.

:(

Ever put your car on a lift and try to open the doors? =[

Maybe I should get a welder and have some welded in like that..

Would that flex make the doors drag on the bottom? Because my friends were giving me crap about the doors not working when i had the front end lifted up. And i told them it was the chasis flexing.

This is the last set I made.

Me and one of my in laws were talking about making a non tube designed one with thicker metal. I just need to give him a template and see what he comes up with.

Just don't tell anyone. It's not like you're competing at nationals, nobody will even know.

Now you ask :lol:

I had been meaning to make a master template off the shell that sat in my driveway for the last year but never go to it. Now Angry has it. Im not taking my fenders off mine either, it too forever to get the WW kit lined up.

If get the chance Ill try to make a template off one in a junk yard or something or maybe ill drive up to Angry's place one weekend :P

I will be making a few prototypes in the near future. I will be racing with and without them to see if their are any significant differences at all and recording my findings for all to see. If all is a success then expect a product for everyone to purchase at an affordable price.

I purchased a set from RCAutoworks a couple years ago but unfortunately I haven't installed them yet.
