When you remove the gas-charged strut from the engine bay lid, you are left with two ball joints: one on the engine bay lid, and one on the rear clam.black
how does the other end work prop up the engine lid.
Good question... I just tuck my behind the carpet, it stays put... clips would be a nice addition...I love the idea of removing the stock prop rod; this looks like a really light and simple solution
I have a related question: is there an integrated way to store this, like the prop rod holder clips on the Elise?
That's correct. It will *seem* to clear, but under heavy load the engine flops around in the engine bay like a fish out of water... and the larger intercooler can hit the stock gas-charged strut. (There are plenty of reports of the *stock* intercooler doing the same.)I believe the standard single strut do not exactly clear the RLS intercooler unless you have the twin struts like on certain Euro Exige S or the Cup cars.
