Suspension & Brakes - shock tower brace

2,3, or 4 point??? I can get BMR 2-point for $80, so i was wondering how much benefit a $150 3-point would have over the 2-point?

I have a UMI 2 pointer and I like it a lot. I've got BMR sways too, so the car is pretty rigid on turns. Unless you are going to do some serious AutoX, I'm sure the 2 would be fine. Now it's time to for me upgrade drag suspension parts.

i'm a casual autoXer... so yeah, i dont see the point in spending twice as much for something that is going to give minimal gains for an inexperienced driver like me.

i made my own and its awesome, i noticed a huge difference in handling and it drastically reduced "popping" during sharp turns at low speeds...

Personally I don't see the point in a 3 point brace. The brace is designed to transfer load as well as reduce flex. A 3 point brace transfers load into the front bulkhead. The bulkhead is not designed to take such forces. During research I've come across more than one person who's had a cracked windscreen or other issues with the 3 point braces. I've not seen any pics of it, buy I can certainly see the physics behind the claims.
Just get a regular one, or a chrome molly one if you want to spend a bit extra.
