[DML] Re: Front Suspension Compliance

I have those "damn" LCA braces (as one could call them) from Ed.
They're on my car ever since I brought it over from the USA.
I also "stiffened" the LCA by closing the bottom with a welded plate.

The handling of the car has been so much improved and the effects of hard braking (the car behaving like a young buck) making the front almost incontrolably moving sideways is entirely over.

I also discussed replacing the LCA by a triangular type like the UCA.
Ed's first remark was that the front strut towers and frame probably would not be up to the forces without re-inforcement.

My 2 pence on the subject.
Do we eventually need a referee?
