Re: Oregonmon's white 1990
Save the weight and just keep the plate + brake brace. Those hinged tower braces move as the chassis moves.
Steve Dinan openly admitted that his hinged CF Dinan braces for strut BMWs are simply engine bay dress up. That's on a car that should actually see some benefit from a tower brace (our cars less so). Save for a fixed Carbing, Okuyama or Mazdaspeed 3 point if you must have the bling. Those are noticeable though marginally.
