      Automech Strut Brace Group Buy for Old Alto(800cc/1.1) and K10

      Automech has been involved in car modification and tuning for quite some time now. They specialize in Free flow exhaust systems and are quite renowned. They do make strut braces for some popular vehicles and after a lot of persuading from yours truly they have agreed to fabricate strut braces for the Alto. (Old 800cc/1.1 and K10). But the catch here is they need a confirmed order of 30pcs. Hence we present to you the Alto Strut Brace Group Buy thread.

      A little information on strut braces: Strut braces provides extra stiffness which in turn improves the handling characteristics of the car and makes it more stable during high speed cornering. When you corner, the whole car's chassis is twisting slightly. In the front (and perhaps at the back, but not so often) the suspension pillars will be moving relative to each other because there's no direct physical link between them. They are connected via the car body, which can flex depending on its stiffness. A strut brace bolts across the top of the engine to the tops of the two suspension posts and makes that direct physical contact. The result is that the whole front suspension setup becomes a lot more rigid and there will be virtually no movement relative to each side. In effect, you're adding the fourth side to the open box created by the subframe and the two suspension pillars. Please note that the brace alone will not make remarkable difference to the handling characteristics of your car.You will have to do a lot more. This is just a small step in that direction.


      I am starting this thread so that anyone interested in ordering these braces can contact me/Varun for the same.The price per brace is Rs1500 excluding shipping.

      The colors available are Red and Blue (powder coated).These are rigid braces made in mild steel(MS).

      The cash deposits will need to be made once we have the 30 confirmed orders.

      Automech will commence fabrication only after payment is received. They expect fabrication and painting to be done in 2-3 weeks. After which the deliveries will commence.

      We can appoint few members in different locations as the receivers from whom you can collect your individual strut brace. This is to reduce the shipping costs.

      So far we have me in Mumbai and Varun560061 in Bangalore.

      I encourage all Alto owners to come forward and make use of this opportunity.

      Hey jarpickle, how much would a front strut brace like this, cost for a civic ? Can these be compared to the likes of ultra racing etc ?

      Are there any plans for rear and underbody braces ?

      Friends

      This is a Group Buy interest thread for the ALTO/K10 ONLY. Which is why its posted in the ALTO section and not in the classifieds (it will be moved there subsequently).

      Hence request everyone to restrict their posts/queries to this model only. For info on the availability or pricing etc for any other car, AUTOMECH's number is there on their website - please feel free to call them.

      Hi All,

      Please let us know if anyone from Bangalore needs the strut brace. I have the strut brace installed in my M800 from almost 2 years now, the quality is good.
      Handling has improved quite a lot.

      Hi Tadu,

      Is it available locally in Bangalore..
