Increased throttle response gives you the "feeling" of more power but there is no true measurable horsepower gain. You can really spin those tires pulling away from a stop light though!

pretty sweet idea eh? no one really guards that area. Obviously its not tough enough to take on huge stuff but small sticks and shrubs and tall grass etc that gets under there is blocked.

a pointer though, measure with wheels at full lock both turned left and right. I didnt and I have since had to take these off because they rubbed the inside of my tires horribly. Ill have to cut and reinstall but it was under 10$ to do and in under an hour so its a fun "mod"
