Mule cars needed in CO for R&D on Ingalls "Stiffy" torque strut - New postPosted: Today at 1:55 am
I want to know what an 'Ingalls' is....sounds like a new JDM fad :wink:
For those of you too busy to click on the link above:

From Ingall's site:

"Benefits:
Greatly improved off-the-line acceleration
Reduced wheel hop
Improved vehicle stability
Reduced shock loads on driveline components
Smoother shifting
Reduced wear on exhaust system joints
Less vibration transmission to the driver compared to polyurethane motor mounts.
Less shock load, compared to torque straps and chains.
Drifting ? helps reduce shock loads when wheels gain traction.
Reduces motor movement ? decreases the chance of motor parts rubbing against
the hood and frame."

is this a product you will be selling? If so, I'll save my critique. Thier discription of what it does is kind of humorous...

Hey Matt,

I'm not necessarily going to be selling the Ingalls Stiffy. They need mules to R&D the bracketry before it's marketable for our app. And then we need to test them to see if they do what they claim.

There's plenty of anecdotal evidence out there that engine torque struts can, at the least, save missed shifts.

Your seat-of-your-race-car-driver's-pants opinions are often quite informative, so fire away!

so the idea is good. but the whole "shock" method is kinda gimmicky IMO. Moti uses a metal bar to brace his engine and claims it makes his shifts easier. So "smoother shifting" I can see as being a benefit. but the rest of the claims are crap. Things like "decreases chance of motor rubbing under the hood. Sounds like the cars they are used to working on have bigger roblems than needing a engine "stiffy". :p

But i'm a crotchity old fart. what do I know? :p
