ireland engineering hands down, no competition. Do not buy anything with hinges if you dont buy theirs... ( but they are pretty much the only people without hinges anyway...)

the sparco brace is basically the same thing as IE's (only comes in red instead of black) and usually runs cheaper

lol, IE makes the sparco brace.

As for the cheaper thing... i dunno. I always find sparcos running about the same price or a little more but i dont look that often anymore.

overall I do agree about the hinges but a strut bar is made for lateral bracing not vertical. So even the hinged ones are somewhat effective.

Finally pulled the M50 from the donor car.
