I have bought all of Snelbaard's braces for front and rear. TOP NOTCH quality. I mean the craftmanship is stunning with great technical support too. When you install them, you'll swear that maybe it's a little off. It is NOT. It is exactly on and you'll fight it a bit to get it on. A friend could be helpful. And no tightening ANYthing until all bolts are threaded. ;-) But it will noticeably stiffen things up and give you more confidence as you turn into corners. I race my Spyder and am more than pleased. Considering the strength of the US dollar (more like a dying Euro, actually), these are now 25% less than what I paid last spring!

Here's a picture of the very first prototype. As you can see it does clear the spare wheel compartment, however you will have to ditch the lid. It's just like the TRD brace in that respect really. The final product will look ever so slightly differently, there will aso be a RHD version.

What aspect of the design necessitates LHD/RHD versions?

The brake fluid reservoir on RHD cars is (for some reason) placed a bit higher up than on LHD cars. Therefore the brace has to have a cutout so as not for the two to interfere. Here's a prototype for the RHD version (Holes in the bar will be there for the production spec):

Yeah I do plan to make those as well at some point, however it'll take quite a while still till those are available. It's just vague ideas at this point.

Well this is just a render, it'll be a while before the first real ones are ready for sale. But I can put you on the list for one of them if you like :)
