i have a fox body that runs 10.7s i'm trying to reduce that chassi flex i have 8 point cage, and subframe connecters, and tublar k meber, i took the sway bar off to help transfer weight, i figer a strut tower brace will help stop the weight transfer, the reason i ask is beacuse ford claims that the brace stops up to 45% of flex, but if it's going to slow 1/4 mile times like i think it probal will, i will not run it.

If you have an 8-PT cage and sub-frame connectors, and still have noticeable chassis flex, somethings wrong IMO.

I'm not sure how a strut tower brace would hurt except for a slight increase in weight. Its not designed to reduce weight transfer only to prevent flex between the towers and firewall. Should help with front end rigidity. Are you pulling big wheelstands or anything? I've seen pics of some mustangs pulling wheels up and the front end looks twisted.
