seems like they liked it

I dunno if I buy into it, as the owner of the civic said he could no longer feel the frame twisting with the locks on. Uhhhh I have no bracing at all on my ride, and I cant even tell when the frame is literally twisting, so I dunno how this guy can. So I still don;t know if I buy the frame-lock thing, but i guess we'll see how this idea goes as it gets more R&D.

but i also heard there are alot of other issues with framelocks, such as crash safety etc. that i didnt see covered.

thats just hate, all that crap that you mentioned was speculation on the other thread on frame locks. Safety issue? what safety issue, another speculatino brought up about the other thread regarding the DISCLAIMER... yeah like all those "for off road use only" disclaimers prevent people from putting that **** on their car.

I can't explain it but lateral twisting is very easy to feel.

It's not out for the 92-95 Civics yet. They chose the 96-00 Civics for their first application. Applications for other cars will be released eventually. I picked up this issue of Honda Tuning at my college bookstore yesterday. Looking at the article, the install looks simple enough.

But there's something inside me that says that this was a marketing campaign article where Korbach paid the magazine to do a product evaluation. It looks like a half advertisement / half evaluation info deal. Nevertheless, I'll still probably order it someday.
