Mine is made out of magic

I think its a prototype that never went into production, I got it from a friend. Its pretty goddam legit and it made a surprisingly significant difference. I originally did SS lines, ATE fluid, rotors and pads on stock brakes in prep for my first track day and had decent improvement. Later added the brace and got significant improvement in feel.

Don't believe the hype? Have someone crank on the brakes in your car while you watch the MC and booster underhood, you might be surprised at what you see. It seems to be far more dramatic in NAs than NBs, but its there.

Yeah, I'd like to see how much mine flexes. I'll find out whenever I have a second body. Crazy how something so little mashed that difference.
Plan on running a strut bar though?

Yeah when bleeding the brakes its hilarious (terrifying) to watch how much the MC moves, though its less of an issue if the booster has vac since you're not pushing on the firewall as hard.

Just did this to mine, boxed in the left over bits of my ebay shock tower brace and welded a nut on.
