Razor's Edge for me......definitely the most rigid due to the geometry of the brace.

Anyone have them installed yet ?
Why is the mopar more $$$ than the razor's edge ??
Because it says mopar...and unless you want it for the name, I would recommend the razors over the mopar any day. Better design and also chro moly vs mild steel in addition to being less money

Looks good HP.

Any "covers" besides the BT's available for the Mopar brace????????

I just picked up the Mopar unit today for my R/T. $309 from the dealer, and I'll get it put on this weekend.

EDIT: May have found an answer for tower caps and the Mopar bar. American Car Craft #153014 looks like it may work. I've sent an email for confirmation, but looking at pics, I think that it will.

Do you notice a significant difference in handling when you
toss that pup side to side ?
Cut down on body roll ?

Yes bolts right up. If you plan to do a rear inlet blower like the kb, then we have a version that is designed to clear it...I would just get that up front if yu intend to install a sc at a later date.

Installed the Mopar brace last night, Easy install on my R/T. Had all the right tools ready, and it was about a 1/2 hour project.

Too late for a test drive, and too many "Bambies" out around here. Great fit, and no suprizes.............other than it looks GOOD.

I installed it at about 50 miles on the car, so can't really say what a difference it make, but on my '09 R/T I could tell a difference.:thumbsup:
I've had strut tower bars on some of my other cars and could always feel change in the reduction of "flex/ body roll". :bigthumb:

I just ordered the drake today. It's going on my 392 if it fits, otherwise it goes on my charger. Will a strut tower brace help in straight line racing at all, or just the twisties?

I've been able to put a couple of hundred miles on mine since the Mopar brace was installed.

The front end of the car just seems more "rigid" now. It has a better control feeling in the steering.

Yes it's better in twisties, and as far as straight line "racing", I'm sure that the more rigid front can hurt with reduced body flex. Can't say that this will help ET's, but less flex over time has to reduce metal fatigue, so the car should stay tighter over time.

I do know that on the street, when hitting rough road surfaces, the suspension seems to be "doing its' thing", and the body feels stiffer. More of a controlled feeling, and I guess you could say "better handling".
