Hotchkis Max Handle Bar system

Anyone used it? Just saw it in a magazine and it looks like it has some "coolness" factor to it

Re: Hotchkis Max Handle Bar system

I saw one mounted on a Camaro at a car show for sale corral once.

I've been to a few dozen autocrosses and haven't noticed one, usually the Camaro's I see just have aftermarket sub frames and frame connectors. I'm sure they're out there though.

Re: Hotchkis Max Handle Bar system

It stiffens the front subframe which is very helpful. You need to use solid subframe to unibody mounts, not poly or rubber. If you hit a speed bump and feel the gas pedal moving under your foot, that's the subframe moving relative to the unibody. The more you can connect the unibody to the subframe, the better/faster your steering response will be.

I used one on a 69 convertible to address cowl shake. No shake. However I had to modify it to fit around an LS3.

Re: Hotchkis Max Handle Bar system

In reading the 411 about the Hotchkis Max Bar...says "may not" fit with stock upper control arms....

If it does that would be great
