GT Spec: Bracing of the Future

GT Spec makes chassis braces for nearly every single point on the car that could flex, from mid chassis braces to strut bars. They truly are what there tagline claims, the future of bracing technology and their products perform well and look amazing.

The front strut bar is one of the sexiest things on the car

After purchasing a few pieces they offered for the car I was very impressed, but after Mark offered me a sponsorship he quickly sent me the rest of the parts needed to complete the car and the results were far better than I could have imagined. Before any of the GT Spec braces the car still had a good bit of chassis roll and never truly felt planted no matter what the sway bar settings were. But after getting the car on the lift I installed all of the parts and the fit and finish was absolutely perfect. Everything lined up perfectly and was very simple to install, not to mention the fact that these parts were absolutely beautiful, the signature GT Spec metallic blue and polished aluminum braces are one of the sexiest things on the car, too bad you cant see all of it without being under it because it truly makes for a pretty undercarriage.  With everything installed I could tell GT Spec had done there homework and designed pieces that would work with aftermarket exhaust, as you can see from the way the massive Exotic Speed exhaust snakes it way through the braces perfectly.

The beautiful rear strut bar stabilizes the rear and looks amazing!

The full kit of bracing included the GT Spec Front and Rear Strut Bar, Front and Rear Tie Brace, Rear Lateral Arm Brace, Mid Chassis Brace and Air Diversion Panel.  The first time out with the new setup and using the same Time Attack course thanks to SWD and ZMax in Charlotte the car was a full 2 seconds faster and was absolutely glued to the track. The braces seemed to tame the 3600 lb G35 and made it feel as though I was driving a go cart, the responsiveness of the car was beyond anything I could have imagine and inspired confidence in nearly every situation on the track. Body roll in every direction was now non existent and the car was way easier to drive and put exactly where I wanted it to be. I cant say enough about how well these parts balanced the car and made it much more aggressive through the turns. For the low price that GT Spec sells these parts, they should be an essential to any one who races there G or Z or any other car they offer parts for. GT Spec is a quality company with quality parts but most importantly the parts they sell perform! Go to and pick up some of theses parts for your car today!

Notice how little the car rolls on the stock suspension around this 180 turn
