Default Traction Bars- Full Race

Well D-family, its been a couple years since I posted on here. I hope everyone has been doing well! I still have my 96 EX turbo and have been picking away at it to this day.(more than ever)

Anyways, I am looking at buying a set of traction bars and I have it down to two options. Full Race vs. Innovative

Thoughts?

Does our half-sized radiator fit either bar?(I am running the 3-row Mishimoto unit) Is anyone here running either bar? If so, pics?

I did research this plenty and didn't come up with much useful info.

Thank you guys, your input is always appreciated!

My innovate experience has been good. A couple of things i noticed though:

- The rose joints are noisy if they're not aligned bang on
- The caster adjustment cant be done on the car because of the threaded design of the arms.

I'd recommend it though, it's been doing the job pretty well.

I've got a full-race drag traction bar on my 00 ex. I like it a lot. It helped with handling and got rid of a lot of my torque steer. I've got a Mishimoto 2 row radiator and a/c and it clears just fine. I did however, need to clock the turbo so that my charge pipe would clear. The driver side connecting rod was exactly where I had that pipe. I was able to move the pipe where it sits just above the connecting rod. Another note about the install is that I had to have the car on the ground to be able to bolt the brackets and rod ends to the lower control arms. It wasn't a big deal, I just didn't expect that.

Hey man, Thank you! This helps me out a lot. I don't know if it is just me or what, but what happened to this site? It feels like a ghost town now? I know its been a couple years since I was much more active, but it saddens me some here...

The site has been kinda dead for a while now. There are usually only a few members online any time I log on. I think most people moved over to facebook.

Yeah all the short attention span nitwits moved over to facebook. It is sad, especially bc the FB group is nothing like this forum and is usually just people trying to sell shit.

So on the plus side, all the trash has moved over to facebook.

You link all the grounds, then wire each solenoid into the spark plug wires, that way they hit sequentially as the engine fires. This creates what I like to call asphalt shattering VTEC.

After some more research, I ended up ordering the Full-Race traction bars. I will post up some more recent pics of the car this spring. A lot has changed.... A lot.

Just saw this thread. Since you bought it, could you please check upon the install, if it binds? Move the lca up and down, with the traction bar attached and shock/spring disattached. Hard race did not respond to my email, hope we get a definitive answer with your help.
This is why I am concerned.
