Every time I’m on the floor under the car it’s just so peaceful I start feeling like I want to take a nap. What’s this deal with cradle lockouts? 😝
Oh,now that’s mean! Almost evil ! Lololol

That front brace came off of mine. That thing transfers gear noise like crazy. If my car was track only I would keep but it is driven daily
My car hooked up so much better after adding the front brace. Straight and smooth.

If it works for you then go for it. Made no difference on my car other then noise

I was really surprised that it made that much difference. My 3.09 is noisy anyway plus no street driving right now.

Reviewing time slips from MSHS Milan MI I had three 1.48x 60'. The tire was moving on the rim as @vortecd and @jonx96 pointed out. It moved probably 10 inches or they'd have likely been low 1.4. I need to look in to that. Was running 22psi of tire pressure.

There were two variables however. 1) This was at Milan and I found prep seemed to be good, at least for my setup. 2) I was running a brand new set of MT ET Street R 305/45R17 tires. Maiden voyage. Car got faster as the day progressed as well.

Yep, I use a silver Sharpie. My old tires didn't move this much, but maybe the cradle lockout is putting more pressure on them.
