I dunno. Those pics of the parts on the cars look like photoshops to me. If you click on the links to the videos, none of them are for Boxster parts. Some of the parts shown in the images look like their mounts are wrong (horizontal insteal of vertical).

I don't have any problem with body roll. Seems excessive unless you're racing full time.

I thought body roll was well controlled on my stock suspension and then I installed the M030 suspension. There's a very noticeable difference.

I installed all of UltraRacing's chassis braces currently available for my 986 S and was amazed what a difference it made to the car.

Initially my thoughts were that it took away the cars personality. However, I have now come to the realisation that these fantastic braces have pushed the envelope of handling, so high, that I no longer know where it is.

Turn in, balance and road holding are all scary good (you get scared and back off well before the tires let go). I have often chortled as I watched many a ricer, Ford and Holden in my mirrors loose it as they try to keep pace on more challenging twisty roads.The fully braced Boxster with what seems like limitless reserves of poise and grip.

The car now feels like I am driving on a smooth sheet of glass. The chassis is so tight. NVH, chassis creek and body roll are all markedly reduced, even on crappy Aussie rough country roads and freeways. No negatives or detractions.

The quality of UR's engineering, materials and workmanship were all of a very high standard. Fitting was easy. Even the front strut brace went on without a hastle (didn't have to move or adjust the Boxster's huge battery as is the case with some other strut braces).

The only problem is that UltraRacing don't currently make a rear strut brace. So come on UR get onto it!

Says the guy who owns UltraRacing?
Seems a bit suspicious for a first post, sorry if I'm wrong.

No, just happy to support an awesome product. I installed them myself about 3 months back.

H&R sway bars, Powerflex PU bushes, AASCO LWFW and FX300 are the next mods to be installed.

Cheers

Their headquarters are in Malaysia, their US office is in Ontario, CA. Their Facebook page shows 171,332 "likes", which is pretty huge. Drifting seems to be their biggest market segment.

Chassis bracing is huge within the Miata world but has not been a big market with Boxster's because the chassis is already fairly stiff straight from the factory.
