F/S Doug Rippie Chassis Stiffener

$350 + shipping. Will fit all C4's. The bar is at Performance Technical Center in Elk Grove Village, Il and Geoff there will arrange shipping.

From the DRM web site:
The stock chassis is flexible by nature and can limit suspension effectiveness. DRM StifferChassis bars significantly reduce chassis flex and increase both cornering capabilities and maneuverability. All bars are hand-built and jig fabricated for an exact fit. DRM bars do not inhibit entry/exit or rear vision. (Tubing Specifications: 1.75-inch dia., .095-thick seamless tubing).

I'll take it. Sold. And I'll pick it up my Landrover.

Patrick, when you pick up the chassis stiffener, just pay Geoff and he'll put it towards my tab. Boy, I remember when I used to have a tab at my local bar, now it's the tuner.:D I spoke with him this morning and everything is set.

Too bad it looks like the top won't fit in the back with that installed
Last summer I had the top off maybe 5 times.

- I don't like how loose the car feels with it off.
- Above 70MPH and you cannot hear the radio, phone...
- I have a bad back and shoulder, and i always managed to pull something when I take the top off by myself.
- When the top is off it rattles near the rear glass - very annoying.
- It takes forever to take off.

So, now the chassis is stiff, I might enjoy the top off for local "spins" around town on a cool 65 degree night. I will just leave the top in the garage.

And, now I can get my car into the 11's on NOS without getting chased off the track!

when I decide to cage my car, I will want to have the top off..

Unlike everyone, I can't tell anymore with the top off if my car is loose..

I also am installing a Stock X brace from a convertible.. that might help too
