Whoa. I thought I posted this last week. I managed to not hit the “publish” button on the blog. I’m getting old.
So, here’s Sharka’s latest part – a RyokuRob v2 rear tow hook. Sharka wore a v1 RR tow hook a few years ago, but it really scraped on everything. Like… everything. I loved the style and strength of the hook, but throwing down sparks after tiny bumps on the freeway got old really quick.
As I mentioned, I’m getting old. ha!
Since Sharka had a tow hook installed previously, the install was seriously minutes of work. Seconds actually. Torque down two bolts. DONE.
This hook works for both the R-package rear lip and the factory bumper without a lip installed. And there’s a whole bunch of other holes for higher mounting. It probably looks quite good with a trimmed bumper as well.
THAT is what I’m talking about. The new tow hook gives slightly greater than 2″ of extra clearance. Like 2.125″ if I remember correctly. That’s huge. That means not scraping unless it was a truly enormous bump and I hit it way too fast.
This tow hook is every bit as strong as the last and can be used as a jack point. There are photos floating around the internet of this. I didn’t shoot any because Sharka’s ass was already up in the air.
I love the design of this hook. It’s gorgeous, functional, and exactly what I wanted. Huge thanks to Project-G for rushing this to me. I hope to return the favor as soon as possible.
And now to go tear apart a pair of perfectly good Elise seats. Why? For science!
