I’ve recently been unloading a bunch of my S2000 parts to clear out some garage space…..
I wanted to show off the ASM front strut bar….. it’s currently on the market to be sold, it’s on facebook and under the SoCal section on S2ki right now if you are interested.
For the non-enthusiast this is just an overpriced piece of metal. All of the cheaper options such as the NRG, Megan Racing, etc are much much cheaper. But they are all replications of this bar. Each ASM front tower bar is made from one guy in Japan at Succeed Sports. Read more about it here
When I got the bar, I was surprised how light the bar is and how solid it feels, it really feels like one piece of pipe. Unfortunately I think this will get in the way of my Toda ITBs, oooppss did I say that? My car is still in pieces so yeah…. hopefully s2k parts will still be affordable when I can put my car back together.
It’s the same concept as some expensive watches that are all made by one man that took years to learn his craft. If this was a Porsche part it would be triple the price I bet!
The welds are perfect, it’s amazing that this is done all by hand. You don’t get this with your Megan Racing knockoff! Those Chinese kids can’t come close.
As quoted from Gotuning, “They’re not simply color treated for show. The entire manufacturing process of each bar takes 4 hours so only 2 can be produced per day. Many ASM GT series bars hold design patents to protect their innovative designs.”
I’m a proud owner of this part, I hope it will go on to a good home in the near future. I wish I could tell you how this feels on a car….
