As for the FSB, some like a bigger bar in a FWD Stock-class car. It will help mitigate the camber gain of a strut suspension by keeping the front a bit flatter. It will also help transition (slaloms), at the expense of corner-exit (sweepers) wheelspin. The 2001 Street Edition Wagon had a 22mm FSB. I also offer a 7/8" (22.25mm) 3-way FSB. I could have it made in 3/4" as well.
Ok. Yeah I have seen the Schroth belts, so that should work.

Since Foci are mcstrut cars, preserving as much negative camber as possible will definitly be the goal.

I guess I will try and see how much rotation I can get with tire pressures and the stock bar . . . I usually like a fwd car to be on the edge of understeer, so it may take some testing to find the best setup.

I will run Hankook RS-3's or equivilant at local events, and throw on the A6's for National Tour events . . . what size A6 are people running?
