I know that Nick ripped out a swaybar mount. Is that the same issue or something different?

Anyway, I'm kinda thinking about this. Not really feeling the Spyder at the moment....

Short list of cars that interest me...

- ES because duh
- SSC should be good comp, should be easier to drive to events, fun street car
- STU because I really like Z cars
- DSP RX8 which I wouldn't prep to the level to be competitive.

Yeah, same issue. Big bar putting stress on the attachment points.

I know the earlier Miatae got the block things approved to avoid it. Maybe that will come soon.

With the Spyder, the brackets were spot welded to the subframe. The approved repair method is pretty open, so people run a weld along the seam. For me, I popped off the spot welds pretty clean, so it was a pretty straight forward repair.
