Default Under Frame Brace- GT spec/ Cusco vs. Tanabe?

I'm looking into getting a frame brace and I am leaning toward the Tanabe brace. To me the Tanabe brace looks like a stronger design, but does anyone have any opinions on which performs better between the three? Are the GT Spec and Cusco frame braces pretty much the same? they look similar. Any info comparing these products would really help me. thanks

i got the cusco just because it's cusco and they have an outstanding reputation in building suspension systems. the tanabe brace is harder to find also. i don't think there will be any difference between rigidities. i also went with cusco because everyone and their mother has the gtspec brace. then again, i'm partial when it comes to reputable jdm companies that i've been reading up on for 5 years haha.

both will perform the same.

nobody will be able to tell if you have one or onother on the car... unless they get under your car to change your oil.

go for the inexpensive one...

maybe your poll question should say ' what frame do you have?' instead of what is your favorite since it'll imply one has tried or heard through the grapevine that this one is better over the other one...

GTSpec=Generic knock off of Cusco parts
Cusco=Brand name
Tanabe=Brand name

all are similar designs so it's more so personal preference. i can't stand generic stuff so i'd personally go w/ the Cusco or Tanabe.
