GTSPEC Products Technical Information Page. Giving detail information on advantage of our braces.

It is our ultimate goal to bring you the highest quality in performance products. GTSPEC suspension components will enhance the handling of your vehicle from streets to tracks. At GTSPEC, we simply put horsepower to the ground!!!
All production cars are spot welded on the assembly line. This process is lower in cost and allows more flex to be absorbed by the chassis (instead of the suspension components alone) to create a more comfortable but “mushy” ride. However, chassis flex needs to be minimized in order to maximize response and efficiency in a vehicle’s handling. This is why stitch welding, or seamless welds, is often a hidden groundwork for race cars building.

This is an image of a front end of a production vehicle. Pieces of components are assembled and spot welded together. Once that is done the assembled structure would be welded to the cabin in a similar process.

Now that you are more familiar with how a production vehicle is built, you should have more of an understanding of why and where vehicle flex can happen. At GTSPEC, we provide the chassis engineering solution for drivers who take their vehicles to the track on weekends or simply demand better handling and response on their daily driven vehicle. GTSPEC chassis reinforcement products are designed and engineered to correct and improve your vehicle’s geometry for superb handling and response,resulting in ultimate driving sensation.

Strut tower and under chassis brace
During heavy cornering, the tower mounts will flex in/out and twist, leaving the driver with sloppy response and in-accurate steering feedback. Flexing and twisting of the chassis will also up
