If shipping to Canada was the same price as shipping within the United States, I would. But it isn't, so I cannot. I can get you a quote to Canada if you want, or it would be free to a US drop address.

Free shipping! Thats good enough for me, im buying one now. I just need to know one thing since im going to have to replace my hotchikis stb with a umi/bmr stb. I see the red painted brace matches the the umi stb perfectly, is that the case with the red bmr stb? And vice versa with the black umi/bmr stb?

Well, maybe I can make your life easy here. I have the UMI bar, and we use the same coating that's why it matches. I have no idea/can't guarantee the color match of other braces, especially ones I don't sell.


Having said that, because I do carry the UMI line as well, I can take care of both things at the same time for you.

Ordered a couple days ago. Can't wait to install. Do you ever run specials on your handling packages?

I cant watch a 3 minute video on this with a cell phone camera shaking around. I've got no sound usually at work and despite skipping around the video I couldn't find good before and after points.

How about a 20 second video with a stable camera showing movement with and then movement without the brace?

Every car is going to be different though. I agree that the camera is a little shaky in the video but it's best to go out and have someone push your brake pedal while watching. Mine only moved maybe a 1/4" and I still felt a firmer pedal with it installed.

Yes, not a high quality production, never claimed to be a film-maker. And the video is a video, you can see it clearly on your own car. If you tall enough, or if you raise your seat up (assuming you have a power seat) and open your hood you can often see the cap on the top of the master moving up and down.

Shipped.... should have them in a few days. If you get some time to review your parts, I'd love to hear the thoughts, both on the brace and and the springs.

And thank you!

Sam

I'll try to get a video up of the before and after for the master cylinder brace. Won't have a review of the lowering springs for a couple of months, car is on jack stands right now

Got the brace installed and I'm pretty happy with it. Definitely can feel that the pedal is firmer and the video shows that there is a no movement anymore when I press on the brakes. I did a half turn of preload on it.

The difference is even bigger with the car running because the power brakes help you push the pedal down more/harder.
