Greddy Brace Performance

PERFORMANCE

Seat of the Pants:

This has always been IMO a night and day modification. It's that noticeable. It just goes to show you the twisty chassis that Honda has built into it's lower end scaled platforms. I immediately noticed the front end was more stable through regular and hard driving. Since the front end no longer suffered from wild chassis induced camber changes, the front tires bit into the ground better. Unlike the rear brace review, I didn't perceive any more body roll due to the front being stiffened up more.

G-Tech Pro Results: (skidpad lateral G force, sustained Gs for 3 seconds)

My GTech Pro registered a .85g reading stock, and a .9g reading after installation. I must admit that the numbers seem a tad high (minor error probably). I should also mention the surface I tested on was extremely rough. The surface probably helped the tires dig in much better and produced much better results than say similar magazine tests on smoother asphalt.


THE VERDICT

Hits

  • Ultra cool look
  • Installed very easily
  • Easy removal
  • Delivered increased cornering performance

Misses

  • Weak painted end brackets
  • Adjustability sacrifices rigidity of unit
  • Location of mount may not be optimum

Shiny!

The Decision

You won't go wrong by getting any brace for the front end of your Integra... however for those cornering demons out there, I'd have to steer you in the direction of the Neuspeed bar for that last bit of lateral g force. If you like the glitz and Japanese name brand appeal, go for the Trust brace as it delivers the performance to boot.
