Default Anyone ever used the kartboy exhaust hangers?

The 00RS that I recently bought has a custom exhaust on it and over bumps and hard cornering it has a tendency to hit what I guess is a lower beam of some kind. It's the bar just before the last two exhaust hangers. I was playing with it yesterday and there seems to be a lot of movement in the hangers themselves. They're very loose. I could see the constant banging of the exhaust pipe against the underside of the car leading to a hole somewhere down the road.
So does anyone have experience with the stiffer hangers or any other remedy for this?
Thanks
Evan

Default exhaust hangers

Hey guys, I have the hangers from Cobb; they should be very similar... The shape is the same and I doubt the durometer(hardness) is different. These things are awesome. Absolutely incredible. I wrote a review on them...do a search for Cobb exhaust hangers

Arrow Hangman Hangers

The Hangman Hangers from Kartboy are awesome. They will solve all your exhaust swaying issues. Buy these immediately.

I can say that my Kartboy hangers do a great job, well worth the cost. I purchaced four, but only really needed the distal two. I bet'ya Cobb's are equally good, knowing their high standards.
A nice "how to site": Hangers install

The Kartboy hangers rock!! They are completely solid and compared to the soft OEM ones the difference is night and day. The red ones look sweet too...

They work well. I just changed the above Stromung to a SS Stromung and had to get the buggers off. Those SOB's are on there and want to stay. But with some WD 40 and a few choice words they come off

yeah, the kartboy hangers are great. They are so much stiffer than oem. I only put 2 of them on and the exhaust won't even budge a bit.

I picked up the cobb hangers along with a CAI and a cusco front tower bar. The hangers were a bit of a pain to install, but well worth the effort. My exhaust (tanabe hyper) dosen't move at all, but I do get a little more NVH at idle. I like it!

I got a full cat back Stromung. I went to Pep boys and Advance Auto parts and got some universal hangers. They look pretty close to the stock ones. I had to dremel out the hole a little bit, but other than that they work great.

All four of mine I think came out to $8. Yeah, the $44 ones are a different color and maybe stiff as hell.
The ones I got are stiffer than the stock ones. I haven't had any banging either.
