I never said snap oversteer to begin with...snap oversteer is when you're in mid turn and at a neutral understeer and the balance is immediately upset into oversteer, thus snap meaning immediate, and it's usually caused by too much throttle input in the turn.

If you like your ass hanging out, then by all means go for the 24mm, just be ready to handle it in a tricky situation on the street. What feels great on an autox course doesn't work as good in the daily commute. But thanks for your insightful response 2020

Edit- my 22mm RSB made a huge difference. 1mm over stock will make a difference. Understeer is not some evil thing you must eliminate either, don't get caught up in myths. Fast is not swinging your ass end out all over the place.
lol f off dumb ass. how much racing do you do? how many auot-x and track days u been to? did i ever say ass end out is fastno i said havign the rear of the car come otu a bit is good with fwd. yeha thats great if you wanan spend 150 bucks for soem plyurathane bushings and a 1mm thicker bar. only reason u felt a difference wa sformt he bushings. with a 24 you get stiffer form the thicker bar and bushings

how baotu when u go buy a real car and get soem half decent suspension mods on it you can come talk to me about handling. maybe if you bought mods instead of rs parts and try to be somethign your not that slwo cars of yours might be able to hang with a svt

hey thefrush how baotu u dotn post on topics you dont know jack crap sabout. if you think a rear sway increases oversteer then i got some ocean front property in kansas ill sell ya really cheap
