is this any lighter, stiffer etc than the stock?
Hello Mackdhagen,is this any lighter, stiffer etc than the stock?
Thank you very much for your support Danduh!The stock Stelvio bar on my 2021 weighed 2.2 lbs. 1 kg Bathroom scale after I zeroed it. Yeah it's not an official calibrated device It's all aluminum and it looks and feels more like a cosmetic piece than a structural piece with its single 10mm stud and nut holding it on. I have one of these new bars coming tomorrow and I will let you know if I feel a difference. I am looking for better rigidity. If I wanted to reduce weight, I would get a lighter car to start and reduce my food intake.
I have stock tires and stock suspension, don't do track days, just a spirited public road driver. The back end does get loose much quicker than a Giulia which I had before.
I like that it moves the brace back from covering the oil filler cap.The brace is easy to install. Looks much better than the stock brace. Probably this weekend I'll find some empty corners to try it. View attachment 29722

His MaxPower Pro is right there front and center in the pics.now with the stiffer brace, you need the piggy back controller so you can put a bit more power down.
Regretfully I scanned them too fast to catch that, but now with warmth swelling in my heart, I'm comforted in that my wishes for him have already come true.His MaxPower Pro is right there front and center in the pics.
