Wondering if anyone has tried these?

http://www.ultraracing.my/catalog/index.php?id_category=664&controller=category

it says for the 2004 C6 3.2 but i believe there were really no changes to the chassis so this should be able to fit the whole C6 line am i correct?

For the price, its worth a shot.

I imagine some parts could fit the S6 as well.

Most of the stuff could be found on Ebay. Was thinking to start with the center brace since that would i would think would benefit the most.

Emailed support for fitment, may just pull the trigger on at least the lower brace.

So after a very long time I just decided what the hell and bought the front brace set and it fit on my c6.5 chassis. Pretty straightforward install and after I feel the turn in feels alot more responsive. Want to really test it out in the twisties so once I get the chance I'll report in. Here are not so good pictures of it installed

Subscribed! Have you thought about getting the strut brace and the rear one as well? I was looking at all three.

I get mixed reviews from the top tower brace. For a long time I heard they dont do much. So might just hold off on that one. But I am ready to buy the center and rear lower braces. Took some on ramps more agressivly and i can feel a difference. Much more responsive and stable. Can't wait to do the other two braces. Will post once i get them installed.

When installed, you won’t see it. It goes in the trough between the firewall and the windshield. The cover will hide it.

how long did the install take you for the front?

Not long at all. Most of the time spent was jacking up the car so it is up on four jack stands. you need alot of room. If you have a lift that will make the job even shorter. its six bolts which you just unbolt and rebolt on. I would say it took me 20-30 min from jacking up to lowering the car. I did not have air tools but if you had air tools and a lift I bet its a 10-15 min job.

Good to see more folks buying this now that's it's been vetted to fit! :-) BTW, I was looking in Ebay and it showed them all to be in Malaysia. How long did it take for you to get your piece dluxxx?

And I know myself. Even if it's hidden and out of sight, I'll still scuff and paint them lol. Deep-gloss gunmetal comes to mind :)

You know it did not take that long. Maybe a week to a week and a half. They use FedEx

What do these things cost guys? No prices on the site. I'm sure it's designed that way to force me to create an account so they can then spam me to death. Thanks.

I'll let it slide that you didn't read this earlier in the page only because I assume you too were so excited by these products that you missed it, lolol. See dluxxx's response to my same question earlier:

I bought all 4 pieces from Ultra-Racing on eBay. There was not a “make offer” option when I bought. I paid $700 for all 4 pieces.

Received tracking update from FedEx today. Delivery will be next Tuesday. Can’t wait!!

To me, make an offer means 0-15% off. I always start at 15% off and put that as my 'offer'.... so chuck up $150 on those $175 pieces.

Look forward the the review on the entire setup. I think that will really tie the car together well. I have a ported blower to pay for but the other two bars will be next on my list for sure.

Oh man. So after a couple days of not so aggressive driving and then re tightening the bolts for the brace I decided to do a mountain run up the twisties and wow. The car feels much more confident diving into turns. It feels much more solid too. And this is just the front brace. Once the other braces come in I think it will make the car much more solid. The combination of the front brace and RSB I think is the minimum you should do to really tie up the suspension. Can't wait for the middle and rear brace =)

Installed. Couldn't do much testing since the ride home was traffic. Will test later one. Took a better picture of the front brace.

https://i.imgur.com/N3vWYDH.jpg

Now the lower rear brace would not fit due to the center resonator is too low so that will be up for sale soon.

Mine are going in today. Sucks about the rear bar! I don’t have center resonators so I should not have that issue.

But, looking at your pics, I may have an issue with the center brace because of my resonated x-pipe. That would suck.

Got them in. Had to use spacers in the rear crossbar to get it off the exhaust tubing. All in all, pretty easy install.

Ok, here goes.....Have been able to put some miles on the car this evening. All I can say is WOW! What a difference these made in the overall ride and handling of the car. I SWEAR the car is even smoother going down the road. The only thing I can attribute it too would be that the frame being tied up doesn’t allow for bumps to “ripple” through the car. It feels so much more solid.
And the handling.....I didn’t think it could get any better with having the H&R sway bars but was I wrong! I took several freeway on/off ramps at speeds that would send a normal 2 wheel drive car (uh hum, Mustang[emoji23]) off into the ditch. Stormy just planted her shoulder into the turn and shot right through. A car as heavy as ours (plus my fat ass) shouldn’t be able to handle like this!
The next test is going to be a run up through the mountains. That will be next Sunday after Espresso and Exotics. Stay tuned!

What spacers did you use for the rear bar. And now im thinking of getting that front tower brace. But I told you the feel of the car is much more solid and it dives into turns. I thought the same thing about how just the H&R was already a big difference. But now with these braces to compliment the sway bar is so much better.

I raided my mechanics spare parts box and found a package of 2 aluminum 1/2 inch spacers. The subframe bolts fit through without issue so I used them. Worked great. Unfortunately, no markings on the package so I couldn’t tell you where they were from.
