There are so many other variables that must be considered that could make your time from point a to point b vary on different days.  

 

If you told me you bought some sticky summer tires and saw a 4 minute improvement, i'd buy that.  Strut bar, no.  Like I said, placebo effect.  It sure does look pretty but it's not doing anything.

I agree different days can produce different times but....

I hope you are not calling me a liar. I made dozens of runs up that hill before and after. Not a one time thing . If it did not help I would say so. The time improvement was not 4 min it was 4 seconds and I have duplicated that time over and over. I have a Edge Sport with the panoramic roof and I can't say if it would help one with a solid roof. Do you have one on your car? Have you driven a Edge Sport with and without one? Or any car with and without one? Are you just a bench racer with an opinion, or do you have facts and experience with a STB on a Edge Sport as I do? I can back my words up with experience and timed runs . Can you?

  I'm just saying that the Edge's chassis design doesn't lend itself to benefit as much as others to a strut bar nor would it improve handling so much to drop a full 4 seconds on a canyon road.

 

What you say is your opinion ,. and you are wrong.

What you say is your opinion ,. and you are wrong.

 

it's human nature.  you put effort in trying to the first to test a part and you want it to succeed and show benefit to other owners.  totally understandable.  

 

however, i'm an engineer and i'm telling you, that in this very specific situation, you are incorrect.  

 

also however, if you're happy with it, that's all that matters.  If others buy the part based on your words, and they're happy with it, that's also fine.  your money, your car.   :shift:

And you are full of it,  just your opinion  Dozens of runs before the brace and no matter how hard I tried I could not go faster. Installed the brace and the first run it dropped 4 seconds, that is to say 4 seconds faster than my best run ever.  Fact! . BTW I just sold my shop last year, it still has my name on the door. We made everything from Nuke Submarine parts to custom heads for Keith Black. Helped build an electric land speed streamliner there as well . Worked with Ak Miller on projects, and built rocket launchers for the Government  It was an Engineering firm, welding and machine shop.  I do not lie because the truth of it is, the STB cut my times by a full 4 seconds no matter what you say. Fact is all you have is an opinion and you are wrong on this point.
