Not sure if it will do anything, but for $20, worth a shot.

 

Modified with some hose clamps.  Seems to fit pretty securely.  Had to make cuts for the clamps, and a cut cut to widen the opening so it didn't interfere with the undertray.

That's just what they are from the 'factory'.  Provides an opening for the sway bar on our car, and fits to the lower control arm (I think) on the Porsche.

They’ll help a bit. Be careful now driving over low clearance stuff though, it’s easy to rip one of these off...

Good thing is they’re rubber and seem flexible enough, and they’re only $10 a side. Lol.

Well, kind of a hard rubber/plastic type thing.  It does have a bit of flex.

October 2009.  Everybody giggled because he was putting spatulas on a $72,000 GT-R next to his Lambo.

 

But it worked.

 

I copied it in 2010 to keep the brakes cool, and got the Kansai ones later when I could afford them.

Been a rough couple of years Tim.  Let my GT-R go, and buried both my son and my father within 16 months.  Don't wanna rain on anybody's parade though.

 

I miss you guys.  I DO NOT miss brakes on a car that goes 160 on the back stretch of VIR that has NO adequate cooling solution.  At all.  I miss my GT-R overall, but the brakes....NOPE.

 

I use STOCK M5 pads at VIR.  STOCK.  And they brake almost as well as my GT-R brakes at VIR.  And they last two full events.

Hmmm.

 

Trying to be nice here, but the idea that the Kansai's can't be attached to an aftermarket sway bar, is.....um....bullshit.

That's the Kansai bolted to the Forged Performance front bar.  The biggest bar on the market.  Period.  Just gotta be creative and not accept negative naysayers.

Nice! I actually bought the Kansai ones but returned them (have forged bars as well). Couldn’t be bothered with machining new mounts, and couldn’t figure out how to fit them right. Would be interested in knowing you you positioned it.

But then again, my solution was $20 vs the few hundred dollar carbon pieces so I’m happy overall.

As for price, you got me.  But effectiveness, I don't know.

 

For the Kansai on the Forged bar, the inner mount needs a longer metal strap.  Thats all

 

For the outer mount, you get a flexible strap that you bolt on and wrap around the end mount of the Forged bar.  It moves a little bit, but it's REAL stable in actual use.  I wish I had a picture of the back side.  But, you don't really fabricate much.  Just a simple aluminum strap with holes from like Lowe's or home depot.  Just bending metal.
