Does anybody have installed pics or ones of it beside the factory deal?
Just trying to gauge the space savings of it....the weight is good.

Its an amazing piece, but not for that coin. Can't wait for BMR/etc to step up and mass produce one.

It is incredible the difference it makes as there is tons of room to reach anything under the car now and its saves you weight

They should have made the rear cross over a bolt in piece for oil pan removal in chassis.

I wonder how much stiffer the factory piece is...
Most wouldn't care, but just curious if any road racers own this?

I'm too poor. But if someone comes out with a more affordable option and I got it then I would likely order it raw and add a number of gussets at all major connection points and possibly some additional bracing to be on the safe side.

Nathan's build is the first road race use I've seen, if he could only stop messing with it and get it together we could get an opinion. But he's also added a cage that would remove any direct comparison info on structural rigidity.

While not a direct comparison here is a pic of a UMI tubular k member for a 93-97 Camaro, standard version and road race version. Quite a difference.

Anyone know where I could get a stock k-member? If I could get one cheap, I could send to a good chassis place I know and ask him to make them for us. We've talked about it and I bet he'd be a good price point. PM if have a k member I could use.
