Like the beatrush brace, or straight across the rear of the PPF?

From what I was understanding, he was referring to this at the tranny end of the PPF.

No suprise Hustler wants and needs a tranny brace. I'm guessing the leather harness hanging in the bedroom just isn't cutting it. Need something solid to really get some traction.

maybe if you weren't such a filthy-fecal-freak you wouldn't come over and break the equipment in my dungeon, pig. That will be the last time I reward you with discipline.

The HD Door Bars don't look very complex. I'm thinking about trying to fab some up with some DOM tubing and a couple pieces of 1/4" plate. Does anyone have any good pictures they feel like sharing?

It helps tremendously on twisty tracks and in autocross situations. My car feels much firmer with the butterfly brace and subframe braces.

Would also like pictures particularly where the door bars mount near your feet. I dont think im going to bend the pipe. Rather ill just have a straight piece.
