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.
- Ultra cool look
- Installed very easily
- Easy removal
- Delivered increased cornering performance
- Weak painted end brackets
- Adjustability sacrifices rigidity of unit
- Location of mount may not be optimum
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.
