That is what we are shooting for, but I was asking if you preferred steel or aluminum. Steel will be stronger and less prone to cracking from vibration, but will be slightly heavier of course.

so use more engineering and thinner wall material and the weight penalty will be trivial.

I agree and would prefer to use steel, but I would like to know what everyone else thinks too.

it never is cheap if you want titanium and welded not bolted at the ends all around ofcourse the normal attachment bolts and it being a 3 way will make this function. Now at what price would that come to?

That is what I want to buy, just like cusco had a limited TI edition FSB that was expensive but there are more miatas out there than evo's.

trans brace is most bestest. I would want that first. (are you noticing the trend?)

Next is MC brace. I would consider the 3-point, but I'm iffy on it. MC is a MUST however.

at 200 i'm a maybe, at 100-150 I'm a for sure buy. (<I'm sure that what I want is probably unrealistic)

I probably won't be making any 3 point braces other than one for my car, sorry. A trans brace is still a possibility though because I don't know of anyone else making them right now.
