I have a Kaaz diff, so no problems with wheel spin

felixthecat I run a 22mm front bar vs the stock 21mm one. Doesn't seem like much, but it does make a difference.

Correct, however at the front, if you run a stiff bar, you can unload the inside wheel and lose traction. Much harder to do if you have a Torsen than an open diff. Not impossible, but harder.

Classes are for people who lack imagination! If I were to autocross, I'd be in E-Mod Street Tire.

Going to a front 24mm H&R bar with a rear 28.6 steeda. The stock front bar I have now just isn't preventing enough front roll over on the tire. Bigger front bar should help me use all of my tire. Rear bar should balance it out. We shall see.

I am co-chairing our local event this weekend and may throw the front endlinks back on just to do some testing.
