    A while back we developed a tubular bumper (aka "bash bar") for SN95 chassis mustangs, and we've now released a new, updated version.

    It weighs in at 4.5 pounds, less than half the weight of the stock assembly that it replaces (~12lbs). This weight is critical, especially since its directly on the nose of an already front-heavy car.

    [MENTION=17526][email protected][/MENTION] I feel dumb for asking but what exactly is the purpose for this? Is it supposed to act as more reinforcement in case of a collision? That's what I'm getting out of it.

    It replaces the bumper support that the bumper cover goes over. The ugly foam brick and steel bar is replaced by this bar to my knowledge.

    Richard nailed it. Allows for ~8lbs weight reduction off the nose of the car as well as clearance for an intercooler if you so desire.

    Are these bars track only pieces? And would someone be taking a huge chance if they ever got into a front-end accident with one of these bars?

    Yessir, these are meant exclusively for track-only cars, as they are not DOT-approved.

    now if your inspector goes deep enough into the car to notice this then you better be DAMN sure to get the roaches out of the ashtray. :)

    Yup. The only setback now is that we're waiting to get support rods back in stock.

    Maybe I missed something, but why can't I find info on the FTR site for the splitter kit?
