Ok I've gone through many emails with Mike. The decision is o go with the 2 bolt mount system, which is more than enough and will withstand what we throw at it ,lap after lap.
I have every confidence in Mike and RRE, for those that don't know RRE and their work, well you had better do your research. This is what they have been doing for many years. They know their stuff, from r&d, they know what works and what doesn't. More importantly they know why and why not a certain design will/will not work.
If your looking for a Functional bar, THIS IS IT!
So the design that will be used is this one...
also sent to me by Mike,
Scroll to the STB, RRE made that one.
ZE POWER MX6, post this info on MX-6.
To much money and I would want a four point mount on each side.
+1, I'd like a nice beefy boxed style, with a good plate, not just two mounts.Im also not so much a fan of the round tube style. If it was a boxed design and had the quality of the one below but with a solid mounting system not one that bends then I would be in on that price.

That's like the Freedom Design FSB, that's not gonna work with the hood to IM clearance we have.
That should be doable, I'll talk to Mike about that. Basically is just a metal plate welded on top of the current RRE bar.Also a fan of this style, the picture sucks
They are the same, we Mx6'ers just have less hood clearance.That's right, the person I bought my bar from had an mx6 and it didn't fit. The reason he sold it to me. What kind of difference is there between the Probe and MX6? Wouldn't the strut towers be exactly the same dimensions?
[shizzle], if you guys get the plate style I want in, but if the mx6 and probe have to have different bars then cannot. Maybe I should just get someone to weld in a plate on my RRE bar.
