^^^ That's exactly what happened to xdrian's case.
My logic was: If it's weak enough to break from wheel hop, it's probably weak enough to flex under load, and it happens to be the part of the case that exhibits the most flex
It's good that he went out to the track and put down some hard runs without any breakage... That isn't proof that the brace helps, but at least it's not proof that it doesn't (mmm... double-negative reasoning
). Although I did measure an improvement with the brace on, so supporting data does exist. At least there's a real world example out there that didn't disprove the usefulness of the diff brace, which is a start.
