is anyone using jim fab traction bar? i heard its more Streetable than the Z10 bar
. but i have heard it is badass, many people say its a better design, including me. i will have one by christmas, ill let you know how it is
I'm using the JIMFAB bars now, and had the Z10s before... pretty happy with both of them. The JIMFABs have better geometry, but they don't drive any different than the Z10s. Both are very streetable.
I've got them on my car, but my car hasn't been on the floor yet.
I'll get to drive on them eventually, but I've HEARD on the ED chassis, they KICK F'ING ASS.
Calesta, what kind of car are you using them on, and while under hard cornering, do you experiance any understeer?
They're on a 95 sedan, and I don't experience any more understeer in corners because of the bars.
Do they reduce, or eliminate wheel hop completely? (jim vs. z10)
i actually emailed jim directly reguarding this. his response:
i dont know if the same is true for the 5th and 6th gen bars, i just wanted to put some info out there in case anyone was wondering.
i put about 1K miles a year on the car so i dont think ill come close to that 100K mark. Thanks for the info
They just about eliminate it, but of course your strut and bushing condition will play a factor in determining how much wheel hop you have left. Right now, with brand new shocks, bushings, and the JIMFAB bars, I have zero wheel hop.
yea, my car is my daily so i put about 10-20k on it a year. but i doubt i will have the car long enough to use up 100k either. and if i do, ill just replace it. and no problem on the info.
thanks for the info guys, now to get on that jim fab waiting list . .. . .
