Whats the best or at least the nicest traction bar you have seen?

I just ran across these made by "Geezer" on Samba.

Called a Geezerbar it has nice heim joints and pull a pin and it drops off quick and easy !

The weak link on the one you posted IMO is the easy "pull pin"
I've never ran one. So I can't comment but Don't you want it sold in the back???

I don't have a picture, but Eric Ballard used to use this threaded rod where one end attached to the top of the engine case, the rod passed through the firewall, and the other end attached to a crossbar that was part of the rollcage. Add some preload to the threaded rod and you're off to the races...

Not a bad solution, consider all those traction bars are supposed to do is put some tension 'in the system', to reduce the frequency coupling and feed back loop that leads to wheel-hop (a machinist would call this "chatter"). Our engines sort of hang out here on this 'diving board' unless you tie it together with a roll cage.
