Any more information on the cusco underbody brace?

Basically, the underbrace attempts to stiffen the chassis a bit. The benefits (supposedly) are improved turn-in and a more stable geometry when handling near (or at) the limits.
Noticable improvement in quick steering changes such as when making quick lane changes/slalom (given the tires are sufficient enough to exploit it).

And just a reminder, no matter how good your suspension is, without good tires, it means little.

No, I meant personal experience. I believe you said you were going to try it out. Sorry for being vague.

This link doesn't work for me.

mtbgael, can you provide details on how you sloted the bolt holes to get more camber, or is that pretty much it: remove strut, enlarge hole, replace strut and make sure the bolts are torqued to spec? I've heard of people making their own camber-plates so they can play with camber and caster and I'm just wondering how that compares to making some bigger holes/slots within the ability of the bolts/washers to grip the remaining sheet metal.

TIA,
Thomas

Celica Tech thread on weight reduction.

http://www.celicatech.com/forums/showth ... post205044

A gts owner got his car down to 2395 from 2980lbs. He removed interior, used lighter seats and removed uneccesary items from the engine bay.

Still has a moon roof and factory glass.

I think an alltrac could get down to the 2700lb range with the same methods.

Plus you can save 35lbs off the roof ~25lbs with a cf hood, and some more weight with a cf hatch.

A fuel cell, lighter suspension parts, wheels and a few other items plus the ones I listed, I bet an alltrac could see ~2500-2600lbs.

Should make a nice track car around that weight.

Weight of items in the alltrac. So you know the saving that can be obtained by removing x item.

Search for Mario Konig. He has a few threads here with his info. He makes the mounts. There are also a couple other versions. TRD made a poly version, and I beleive once of our sponsors also made a polly version.
