    Deft Racing Hoods

    Quick question on these hoods. I've got the 575, but I think that the mounting holes are all the same. Does anyone or vendor out there make hood shocks for these? I know 3SX sells some that have the 6mm, but has anyone tried it with deft racing hoods? While I would love to make my own if I had time, I just need something I can bolt in and go with for now.

    Hi there,

    Yes, they do work, although I've never fit them myself. The hood struts I used are "strong arm", and they are sold as hatch stuts I believe. I used ones witht he same length and stroke as our stock hood struts. I cant remember the pressure, but I want to say around 35/40 pounds.

    Thanks for the reply. I did eventually order the 3SX hood struts and they worked fairly good.

    Which size bolts did you order them with, since 3SX has two sizes? What do mean by "they worked fairly good"?
    Hey, when you turn your car on, does it return the favor?
