I've seen them before too. I think one guy linked his rear subframe with it. Makes sense. I'd rather make one myself though lol.

I'm including it in my cage design because it then qualifies as "safety equipment" and I don't take any points for chassis stiffening. I'll actually get a point back because I won't be running a rear strut bar anymore, lol.

Yeah, I would rather make my own too. Making shit like this is part of the "hobby"

But its a nice looking piece for sure.

Maybe a good product for you to fab... a more simplistic version, unpainted, drill your own shock bolt holes, provision area to tie your roll bar to it etc.

I have thought about it personally.. I just don't know how many people would actually be up for it.
