    SFC chromemoly2 point vs. 3 point

    Talk about information overload. Choices out the yin yang.

    I've pretty much narrowed my choices down to getting either:

    Spohn chromemoly 2 point SFC's or UMI's 3 point tubular.

    I wanted boxed for strength but I also don't want to be able to see it when i'm walking up to the car.
    Which of these would make for the strongest subframe setup?

    My 2cents. I'd say the 3 point is the strongest. Connecting the 2 sides together well make it stronger, plus it will distribute the loads on the SFC to more surface area on the car, also making it stronger. For a tubed chassis the cross bars are there to strengthen the chassis and allow no flexing. The same principles apply here as well.

    I have the SLP SFC being black they are hard to see when walking up to the car.

    I have UMI's 3 point installed on my car and I love them. Car is much tighter now and stiffer ride. Never used 2 point one's before so sorry no opinion on those. Hope this helps.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    you have a trans am, you wont' see them at all since the car has ground effects.

    I have 2 pt SFCs from hotpart.com-they really made a difference. haven't felt a car with 3 pt yet. But the 2 pts make me happy-nice and straight driving and lauching is much smoother now [m6]
