Post Sway Bar Stiffness Calculator
http://www.buildafastercar.com/tech/Swa ... Calculator

I've been having a discussion on EvoM about drilling holes 30mm inwards on my stock Front Sway Bar and if my numbers are right it will allow you to adjust the bar for about +25% stiffnes.

Right now I have my rear bar at an estimated +64% and I think it's really good for the street. I may drill the front for +25% and then move the rear to +95% to keep that slight oversteer bias and test it on the track or auto-x. :mrgreen:

Shouldn't you really concentrate on actually getting to a track or autocross first?..... :lol:

Damn you Tim, damn you!

I'm getting that clutch installed by the end of the week assuming I can get it in and will look at brake pads for the track as well. What kind did you recommend for Watkins Glen?
