For the price, how much of a group buy do you want? It's one hell of a price as it stands...

My two buddies use them and love them.

Great product!

It's on the way buddy!

Thanks for the complements guys. I have had some great reviews with this product...Truly I have trouble building enough of them...lol. If you guys did not love them I really could not sell them. This is kinda one of the problems that I have with the S14 one...Not that I do not think it works...I know it does. I just know how much trouble it is to install. I will probilly do a small production run of these, but I will have to run it by Greg to find out what will be required to bring in a new product. Thanks guys it realy means allot to me that you like my work.

Happy Holidays to allJonnie

If the price is right, and the performance is there, Im willing to deal with a difficult install.

Jon wants that S14 brace to be as easy to install as the S13 brace. So that is one of the reasons it has not been made into a production peice. However in my opinion it is ready for the public now. But that's how Jon is with his parts if they don't meet all of his personal criteria I.E. function, form, quality, price and ease of install then he isn't satisified. I think that with some convincing from me and others on here we can get them into production.

I can respect that. Maybe we could convince him to do a pre production run of the S14 parts, that way a few of us wrench monkeys can install it and do a private review, maybe an extra set of eyes and fingers will help make the final product better. Kind of like a Beta version for computer software. These are just my thoughts, in the end it is up to Jon. Im just trying to be crafty so I can get my hands on one before anyone else.

I finally got a warm day last week to put mine on and it was quick, easy and I love how the car feels now. Its definitely more solid feeling in the steering. A+ on this product!

I installed mine today after work and I love the stiffness of the front. The hardest part of the installation was straightening my tension arm to fit the crush spacer bc the previous owner bent it and lining up the screws for the power steering (atleast I think that's what it was) attached to the arm and power brace. Great product overall. It was nice doing business with you Jonnie.

Great! I am so glad that you guys love them. As long as there is a need I will keep building them. For all the S14 guys I have ordered parts so I can do a small production run of the S14 brace. There have been several people hard on me about getting these things going...lol. Danno you will definitly be on the list.

Thanks so much for the feedback Jonnie

Is there any way I can get on that list. I have all the tools needed to install, I really want to be part of the test run. Cash in hand.

This may sound like a stupid question BUT

Can this product be added to the NISMO power brace?

I'm almost positive that'd be a no. It goes exactly where the power brace goes, not to mention it does the exact same job as the nismo unit. Jonnie, these look great. Hopefully when I get some cash this will be the final touch to my front end.

Chris you are right. If you have a Nismo than you are set. It is a great product. My goal was to design something to give the same results as the Nismo and not cost quite as much. Ok for all you S14 junkies... I have some good news. This is the first of the version 3.0 S14 brace right out of the jig. This will still require you to drill your tension arm brackets to install it. I cut back the rear mounting tabs so the power steering bracket does not have to be bolted through the brace. This first production run is pretty much spoken for. I wanted to do a small production run to make sure everything works before building a bunch.

Thanks guysJonnie

Maan you need to make more types of braces which work like that... for s13.. and s14 (i have s13)... like the frames... rear... whatever else there might be... that'll be hot... subarus have lots of these fancy undercar braces we need some too :P
