Ok these new X braces are going live on the site immediately and available for order---we have a pair in stock with 5 going to powder this week.* We've also bundled them together with some of our other products to create some nice packages!* They'll be on sale through Sunday and some with free shipping!

Was talking with Jim on Facebook and this is designed to work with the 2 point brace. Slapshift already has the 6-point and it makes a WORLD of difference with it on the car.

Jim mentioned that the 6-point will be discontinued due to shipping expenses so this, with the 2-point, basically replaces the 6-point.

Glad I bougth a 6 point while they last !!!
Super easy to install, no need to remove anything but some bolts. Make your life easier, do this on a lift!
It does make a nice driving difference, not WOW! but worth the price.
Along with rear sway bar and front sturt bar, I can have the VT to oversteer a little instead of massive stupid understeer. Much more neutral.

What's the difference between this new one and the original 6 point brace?

Edit: Looking at the pictures closer, I can clearly see that they must removed the a-arm front points. Took me a minute.

Have you noticed any changes while driving 80mph on the highway?

Is there a noticeable difference between this and a 2 point vs a full out 6 point? I have a 2 point sitting around and am caught between selling that off to get a used 6 point or buying this to go with the 2 point one.

I see that the xbrace is a 4 point connection. I have seen a 4 point brace that is not an x, what are the difference's between them. do they mount to the same points? the other 4 point is like a square.

The other 4 point uses the a-arm bolts up front like the original 6 point. I think the full 6 point would now be the 2 point A arm and this 4 point X brace.

Unless you turn, hit bump or push hard on the car.......NO! Going fast does not challenge the suspenssion/handling of the ride.

Only thing is that you have to pay attention to speed bump and I got stuck 1-2 times in snow. I'm not even lowered!! No need to worry for snow if you're in Fl I guess.....

I don't drive the VT in the snow cause it sucks and I have 2 AWD cars so that's not an issue. Speed bump are though however. My community is full of them unless I go out the back way every time I drive the car which would be quite annoying .

Pics look like it tucks up pretty well and isn't lower to the ground than the side skirts. Hopefully it'll be alright

Clearance, assuming you aren't lowered, isn't an issue.

Rear bolts of the K frame and then the bolted joint in the middle of the chassis. Same place the 6 point is. It will be the lowest point of the car but shouldn't be an issue unless you're driving over things you be driving over anyway.

Guess I got something to look forward to next Black Friday sale! Already got the 2 pt.

It will hang below the side skirts. In the middle of the car the lowest points are the exhaust and the frame rails. If this hangs below the exhaust enough to clear a 3" exhaust it will hang lower than the side skirts.
