      • Custom Solid Metal Motor Mounts |To Be Installed| (You heard me.)
      • Custom Stiffer UniBrace


      Would like more info on these two. Since your mounts are to be installed I'll be waiting to hear your impressions. Can you explain more on getting them made? What makes your unibrace stiffer and custom? Can you take some pics please?

      Motor Mounts:
      I ran the stock mounts through a CMM machine and pulled all the dimensions to a CAD file. Then made solid versions in SolidWorks. I am having them milled out and should be installed within the next two weeks.

      If they turn out well (as I am thinking they will), I am going to start selling them on here. I will have to figure out the whole vendor signup deal with the vortex. Blah. Blah.

      Unibrace:
      The brace started as model in the computer of a stock unibrace. It was then ran through some finite element analysis (FEA) and was improved to be stiffer.

      It looks almost the same as a Unibrace just with holes moved around here and there. Nothing special looking.

      Draxus, we have talked before so you know im not trying to be an ass, but just want to pose some genuine questions (btw coming from someone with an all spherical suspension on a daily):

      - what benefit do you propose from the solid engine mounts? IIRC you want to go turbo in the future but unless you are looking at 1000whp drag car im interested to hear your thoughts for the street...

      - what benefit do you propose the stock unibrace? bruce is pretty on top of things so please explain...

      HGP-T 450PS, Unibrace, 225/40/18 AD08s, OZ Ultraleggera, Light BBK F&R, Recaro Interior, .:R extras, MFD Navi, Phatbox, JCaps, Neuspeed, PSS9s, H2Sport Stage 3, DLI-Teknik, GC links, bHPP, etc...

      Mounts:

      I do plan to go turbo. But that is neither here nor there. I needed mounts and was browsing car forums for ****s and giggles. I ran into the fact that Porsche 911s have less cabin vibration when they solid mount their engines and trans. So I thought, why not? Worst case, it's a pain in the ass. Best case, it works well. lol

      Brace:

      Do you mean, why is the Unibrace as a whole good? Or how is mine better? I think mine is better because of how cheap it was! Regardless, I didn't do the work on that one. I bought it from the designer of it. He is a smart guy (some kind of an engineer, it was a while ago) and has a plastic rapid prototype version of the Unibrace he made during the process hung up as a decoration, so I would assume he put some thought into it.

      I have the feeling that some weight was added to make it stiffer. An example is that the brace is thicker as a whole.

      Sadly the springs were done by Kippen or someone else.

      Shocks still stock. The ride really needs help.

      Thanks Draxus

      The brace Draxus is running has the same outer dimensions and uses the same thickness aluminum as Bruce's brace but the inner workings were designed from the ground up with strength in mind (and were stress tested at UF). The backbone is also tig-welded in placed rather than riveted. Also I think it came out pretty BA looking

      (Sorry for the quick reply - rushing out of work)

      Thanks for the info about the custom unibrace, but please explain how any of this makes it 'better' ?

      Amongst my shortlist of trusted suppliers bruce/gtitraveller/unibrace is pretty high up the list.

      He has justified the science involved already in the past. Lets hear it for the 'improved' version (especially since IIUC its borrowing from someonelses already proven design... )

      I build a brace for an autox event 2 weeks ago, it took me 15 minutes used scrap aluminum I had laying around the garage, 2 bolts and nuts, 4 rivets, a drill, an angle grinder and I was hanging the a$$ out of my R32 wagon as I pleased.

      I could hold on to that brace pull and push on it and the whole car shakes .... its just one 3/4 inch square tube bolted to the rear seat back rest latching hoops and a center post riveted vertically in the middle.

      ohhh and the rear sway bar is stock ...


      v2 will let me keep the seats in next time I have time to build something ....

      In short the brace is stiffer than the UNIbrace design. The design that I ended up going with was stress tested against a stock UNIbrace design and could handle higher loads at each corner (I don't have the exact numbers in front of me but % increase was very nice) without increasing weight. We did everything from Solidworks models to rapid prototyping.

      As I've said before all the credit for the UNIbrace design goes to Bruce - all I did was try to build on something (and I did that for me - one final version was produced and there was never a plan to market the design). The final brace was produced at an aerospace fabrication facility where the face was cut out on a CNC machine and the TIG welding was done by the master fabricator there (AWS level III).

      We took the UNIbrace and got everything we could out of it without changing the outer dimensions/design or increasing the weight. We were working on fluid flow analysis of different intake designs and had plans to build a new brace which would depart from the UNIbrace design (using what we learned to stiffen the body even more) but I sold my R32 and those plans never left the drawing board. Draxus bought the brace after I sold my R32.

      Hopefully that makes some sense - still waking up.

      Shocks still stock. The ride really needs help.
      Needs to be added to your list and should take higher priority than some of the other stuff there.

      you might want to give some thought to the fact that the Porsche uses a horizontally opposed engine rather than the V design; they are going to be much more balanced than our engines....i know for fact that with older bug & 911 motors you can literally build them and start them on the ground to make sure they run b/f installing them....

      just food for thought, b/c you are piggy backing on an idea from a very specific and unique engine design....

      I talked to a guy that has a 1000+ hp 3.6 vr turbo racecar with solid mounts and he said that they were ok for a racecar ..... I am assuming that not so much for a daily.

      I also acquired this solid aluminum inserts to replace my worn out VF bushings. ...... they guys I bought them from said that they will rattle my teeth out but they have used them on 4 cyl cars only so I am hoping that the vr6 is going to balance out a little better. My car is not a daily any more so we will see how they work, I'll do a review later.

      Yea, that came up in my brainstorm. Figured worst thing that can happen is I take them out and don't use them.

      as far as the motor mounts go, i know as far as mk3s go the ABAs give off more vibrations than VRs with the same mounts. maybe they'll work, only one way to find out

      understandable....i will be interested to see how it turns out....

      i have my own "ideas" that i want to piggy back from the 911's as well for my R...maybe one of these days if i finish up my other project i can start playing w/the R....

      good luck with everything

      Thanks mate.

      One thing that I heard from 034 is that the rear subframe from a 911 will almost bolt right onto the rear of the R.

      In that case who needs trunk space slap a flat engine back there

      haha...i will believe that when i see it happen...."that easy"

      i need to finish my current pig/project....then i would like to do a twin variable vein turbo setup on my R....something that is fast out of the hole, and wicked fun to drive in the mtn....then hiatus from car till i can affort my 996 or 997
