ESP.NET Traction bar set up

ESP.net 98-02 Accord Traction Bar System with Front Torque Mount Kit F/H 4 cyl Models - 6th Gen Accord DIY and Performance Forums


Posted this link over here in case anyone is not aware of it over on 6thgenAccord.com

He's got the 4 cylinder model done. He is working on a V6 model now.

Some of you guys over here got some real power going down. Maybe this will help you with traction for your dragstrip runs.

Michael, not sure if you have talked with them, how does their setup compare with the UR bar you got?

Have not talked with John @ ESP.net.

The U/R 4 point does nothing for wheelhop/traction. It only reduces flex in the chassis.

The ESP.net traction bar set up is using heim joints (a solid connection) in place of the radius rod bushings(rubber). My guess would be, that is part of the effect of reducing wheelhop. In addition, he has a torque mount that mounts to the engine block that reduces or prevents the engine from moving --- similar to using solid engine mounts and/or a Ingalls "stiffy" engine damper.

So, potentially, to be used in conjunction with the UR brace?

I already have the Innovative Mounts in, but whatever else can be used to keep the front end planted and as much power to the wheels as possible, is always a good thing.

$350 w/o the front torque mount kit -- for the engine.

And, John says less than $100 for the front torque mount kit add-on. So maybe $450 total.

But, that is for the 4 cylinder version, V6 version might be a lil more?

This would definitely be added to the "wanted list", even with just a basic 3.2 swap I had bad wheel spin.
