That's because there are fair too many variables between 2 (especially modded) miatas.Matt [exz3owner said:@ Thu May 25, 2006 5:05 pm]You couldn't tell which car has a strut tower bar, and which one didn't if you drove 2 cars back to back.
I have to try one of those out sometime. Not sure if it's really worth the extra weight/maintenance headache...I was able to tell the difference when I installed the Carbing/Okuyama triangulated strut brace on my car (same one pictured above), but that was back when it was relatively unbraced to begin with.
I'm of the opinion, though, that an STB isn't worth it unless it's triangulated. Most non-triangulated STB's out there allow movement along a lateral rotational axis, which pretty much defeats the purpose of installing them.
