HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Hi guys,

Now that some years have passed since the initial discussions surrounding the need for a triangulation brace (to help prevent the trans from torquing along its axis), I'm curious what the verdict is.

I will be heading down to VIR this weekend and have been thinking about building a simple brace -- have a number of places it could bolt to.  That said, I've also heard of folks complaining of poor shifting and increased propensity for blowing axles.  


Obviously this is a conversation involving "where do I want the fuse to be" but I'm primarily interested in how this brace may be preventing wear on the transmission itself.  


As a point of reference, the car has a stiff suspension, radial slicks (albeit thin, 255-section) and solid trans/motor mounts.  

Was able to shake the car down this past weekend (with just the solid mounts and no triangulation brace) and it feels fantastic.  Shifts are perfect, car felt terrific.  


Thanks in advance for the feedback.

Have never blown an axle. I think most of the poor shifting comes from having a worn torque tube, where the nub enters the pilot bearing...

I don't have any tranny bracing, all stock.

Thanks Doc -- I think I'm going to keep just the solid mounts for now without going so far as to brace. Have heard of enough problems that it doesn't sound like the brace is worth it.

Mine is now solid mounted and has a brace (just in case).
