    Are they worth messing with. Do they give you significantly better handling.

    only if you get solid ones. the ones with joints in them are worthless.

    i welded the joints on mine to make them solid.

    yeah get solid ones,, you also get what you pay for. look for something that goes to the fire wall.

    3-point braces for civics are rare.

    you are good enough with a solid one that goes from tower to tower, or a welded one as i have.

    no, im putting on my civic. I have a classic mustang, may consider fabricating one for it if they work good enough.

    Could you tell a difference after putting it on???

    as a whole not a noticeable difference, but with other mods (shocks/springs/sways) that make you handle better they become more needed.

    If you're into autoX don't do a 3pt bar. 3pt bars are illegal in almost all classes. I think it may be legal in the prepared classes, but there you're going to be competing against full race ready vehicals.

    I agree. Solid bar all the way. I have a my stock solid bar on the front, and a jdm knock off one for the rear. Car feels great doing 70-80 down lightly curved offramps. :D
