    About All Angles Design

    All Angles Design has, since its inception in 2009, provided engineering and design services to companies in the automotive and powersports performance markets. Though we do some industrial work as well, our primary focus is and has been on performance automotive products. Until 2013, AAD had been exclusively business-to-business so the products we design were produced and sold under other names. As we have continued to grow, it's become clear that the time is right to venture into selling our own (and select other) products directly, and that's why we are here.

    Having had the opportunity to serve clients ranging from small fabrication shops to Chrysler Group, we have built a business by repeatedly applying the same simple approach:

    1) Understand as much about the problem to be solved as possible, and accept what you do not or cannot know
    2) Determine the ideal solution
    3) Determine how close you can get to the ideal solution at a target price point
    4) Test, test, test, test
    5) Deliver a product that exceeds our customers' expectations

    Our goal here at Fiat500USAForum is to identify and bring to market products where we see a need that isn't filled. You guys will determine what we make and you guys will judge with your wallets if we've done a good job. We'll never be a huge presence in the FIAT retail market, but I sincerely hope we can deliver products to this community that you enjoy, and that help you enjoy your cars even more.

    Oh yeah, one last thing: 100% of our products are designed, manufactured, assembled and packaged in the USA. We use shops in Florida, Nebraska, Tennessee, North Carolina, and probably other places yet to come to build the pieces we need. Our CNC aluminum parts are even made from US-made aluminum - a rarer thing than you might expect these days!

    Talking AAD Torque Strut Group Buy - SOLD OUT!

    Okay guys, we're going to introduce ourselves to this community with a group buy on our newly designed Torque Strut!



    Because we still do not have our web store up and running, we'll do this the old-fashioned way with PayPal and a post here.

    Design Brief:
    The OEM Torque Strut provides the primary brace that allows torque generated by your engine to drive the axles and wheels/tires. To ensure minimum NVH (noise, vibration and harshness), it utilizes a rubber web at the rear that allows significant engine movement before full torque is applied to the axles.

    We set out to build a replacement part that significantly reduced engine movement under torque with a zero or minimum increase in NVH.

    Prototype Parts:
    Since this is a geometrically simply part, we very quickly had prototypes designed and built. We initially created two sets of bushings:

    - Polyurethane (80A Hardness) with Steel Bolt Sleeve
    - UHMW (Ultra-High Molecular Weight) Industrial Plastic (80D Hardness) with Steel Bolt Sleeve

    Our thought was that the Poly bushings would be the soft version and the UHMW would be the "EXTREME!" series. Testing on two Abarths with the Polyurethane bushings, however, proved that even the "soft" version produced NVH that made local dentists giggle with excitement and pull out the most recent DuPont Registry in anticipation.

    The good news was that there was a significant improvement in the "seat-of-the-pants" Throttle Response. Decreasing the time it takes between when the engine generates torque and when the driver feels it is obviously good, but shaking the driver to pieces in the process is bad.

    Plan B:
    Back to the drawing board, we realized that we might be able to utilize good old-fashioned workhorse O-Rings in a unique way to solve our issue. I love O-Rings because they are super precise dimensionally, designed to be super tough, and they are very cheap. So, we designed a new aluminum bushing that used 5 Silicone O-Rings as the vibration damping material. By slightly varying the diameters of the 5 O-Ring grooves, we were able to create a progressive load/displacement curve for the bushing making it softer in the middle but harder as torque rises.

    And, on the second revision of that concept, we got the home run we were after: almost no increase in NVH throughout the RPM range while retaining nearly all the gains in responsiveness that the Polyurethane bushings provided. The original thought behind the O-Ring bushing was that it would be "tuneable," but testing has revealed there is no need. 5 O-Rings produces near zero additional NVH with maximum performance benefit, so consider it "pre-tuned."



    Group Buy Details:
    Retail price for this piece will be $119.00 when we finally get the web store up and running. For this group buy, prices are as follows:

    If we get 10 takers (minimum) $109
    If we get 20 takers $104
    If we get 30 takers $99

    Fitment Note: This part will fit Abarth and 500T vehicles with manual transmission only.

    At the moment, I'm planning to limit the group buy to 30 parts OR until the end of December. Prices do not include shipping which is typically about $13 in the lower 48. To get in on the deal, just PayPal a $50 Deposit to sales@allanglesdesign.com - please be sure to include your forum handle! We'll keep an updated list here of where we are at as it goes along. I expect to deliver these parts mid-late January so you can install them in the freezing cold dead of winter.

    NOTE: If you don't like PayPal, you can PM me and we can run a CC over the phone or you can send a check.

    Current Price $99

    NOTE: An asterisk next to your name indicates I will NOT include your forum handle when laser etching your part.

    Just so people can see the difference between what the stock torque strut looks like compared to ours, here is a picture. Our torque strut in this picture has the original bushing in it, but with the new one in there is about a 1/16" of o-ring all the way around. When the engine is under torque this allows for less than a 1/16" in movement. The stock one allows for about a 1/4" (4x the movement) before it hits the rear bump.
