In looking through my mustang catalogs for replacement sheet metal I saw that they sell "torque boxes". This is a total noob question, but how exactly does a torque box help stiffen up the car? Looking at the sheet metal in the picture I wasn't even sure where the thing went, but after looking around online I saw a Mustang Monthly article where they put them on a coupe underneath the toe board. Do they really make that much of a difference on a coupe or fastback? I'm no engineer but I don't see how that little bit of sheet metal is going to help. They don't look all that impressive.
