Hotchkis Chassis Brace

After some researching is definitely sounded like I needed to firm up the cradle. Initially I didn’t want to deal with dropping my cradle so I went down the route of using the Hotchkis chassis brace. It’s a pretty straight forward install. However, I never really felt anything with it. The car didn’t feel any different in the butt dyno nor did my times really increase at the drag strip. Still it is a good concept so I stuck with it for a little while.

Eventually I decided to try some cradle bushing inserts. I didn’t want the full bushing for now because of money, install difficulty, and as of now I don’t plan to go much more HP wise with my car. I’m sitting at the 415 rwhp range so inserts should be fine for me.
