Braces are a false good idea.. not sure why so much people are installing these. The body has to flex to absorb shocks, but with these you are transferring the energy into the shock towers... plus instead of breaking one, you might end up breaking both.

its a trade off. if the chassis flexes too much you break shafts, cups, etc, etc. with a tower to tower you are more likely to brake an a-arm on a hard hit but the rest of the car will be ok.... if I would have had my t2t on this landing i would have just broke the front arm...now i have to take the whole car apart....Im still not even sure how the cup came out without breaking case...

I don't know about that. look at ThomasP videos. He runs t to t with stock towers and jumps his trucks like a hundred twenty feet in a freakin rock quarry. doesn't run after market braces either. Been doing it for years...(If Im wrong TP please correct me...)
