Default [GR STI] Hood Dampeners for CF Hood

What hood dampeners are you guys using for CF hoods on 2008-2014 WRX/STIs? The stock hood dampeners are too strong and cause the CF hood to bend. I want to keep the hood dampeners for when I'm working on the car and I don't to just run one because it puts asymmetric long term stress on the hood. The only ones I found potentially might work are the NRG hood dampeners made for CF hoods (https://drivenrg.com/collections/hoo...subaru-wrx-sti) Just want to get additional input

for a low low price of 150 dollars (15 dollars less than those dampers) I will sell you a broom customized to fit and hold your hood open when working on your car.

Now, if you're looking for something you can tuck away, I can also customize some string to attach your hood to your rear hatch/trunk area. This way there is no broom in the way and when you're done, you can just wrap up the string and put it in your trunk.

I've been using the stock dampers for about 3 yrs now with my Seibon CF hood. No issues here at all.

Would you expect anything less?

To be honest you kind of answered your own question by linking the exact product you're looking for in the post.

Find the CG of the hood, figure out the perpendicular distance from the CG to the hinge axis. Multiply those two numbers together.

Measure the perpendicular distance from the strut axis to the hinge axis.

Go on Mcmaster carr and order struts that have the same force value as the first two numbers multiplied together divided by the third number.

Order that strut. Attach to hood.

I never thought this day would come where I would actually use the Pythagorean theorem in real life
