One benefit of running larger sway bars is the reduced roll while cornering. Being able to adjust stiffness ratios also helps fine tune the weight transfer that can impact understeering and oversteering while drifting as well – giving me a huge competitive advantage over those who opt out of running sway bars.
Running swaybars also greatly helps the cars handling in transitions making the car more responsive to steering input and more responsive to corrections so large steering input is not needed to control the car in drift. Big corrections are a points deduction so if corrections are less visible its a plus.
Finally running swaybars can make a car less boat like even with soft springs that are needed for grip in a drift car setup.
I'm pretty excited with the progress (pun intended) we have been making on the suspension overhaul on the Turd. In case you missed it, we recently installed some KW Clubsports as well. Next up we will install the Parts Shop Max parts components we overviewed. We are getting closer and closer to being able to test everything out! Stay tuned.
